The Spurs could not replicate Monday’s energy and fell to the Warriors in their immediate rematch. Rudy Gay led the team in scoring with 17 points while Trey Lyles and Patty Mills also came off the bench to score 15 and 13, respectively.

Trey Lyles particularly provided some solid minutes and much needed energy for the night:
Keldon Johnson never needs an excuse to provide energy, and he came through with a solid stat line of 13 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists:
