I'm not going to lie. I went to bed and stopped watching the Spurs-Warriors game when there was about 8 minutes left in the game. It looked over in my defense. The Spurs looked old, slow, and they couldn't stop Curry if they had a cattle prod. The Warriors were also not missing anything. They were shooting almost 60% from the field which is crazy. The game was over.
Until it wasn't. The Spurs came back from a 16-point deficit with four minutes left to play to send the game to overtime. Then the game was sent to a 2nd overtime. And then Manu Ginobili did this.
And now the Warriors still haven't won in San Antonio since I was nine years old. And Wednesday night's game is going to be very good.
I'm not sure how the rest of this series will play out now. I'm sure San Antonio won't fall apart like the Nuggets did but have the Spurs finally figured out their Curry problem by putting Kawhi Leonard on him? Leonard held Curry to 6 points in the fourth quarter which is a big reason why San Antonio came back. Could that be San Antonio's difference? We'll see on Wednesday and the rest of the series. One thing is for sure, this will be a fun series and a reason not to go to bed before the game ends.
