Thompson shines as Warriors sink Spurs
Klay Thompson drained eight-of-nine from beyond the arc and Stephen Curry scored 22 points as the Golden State Warriors beat San Antonio 100-91 in game two of their second round playoff series.
Thompson, who finished just one three pointer shy of the NBA playoff record, had 34 points and 14 rebounds for the Warriors on Wednesday at AT&T Center arena in San Antonio, Texas.
Golden State held on for the victory to even the series 1-1 after the Spurs cut into their 20-point third quarter lead by storming back in the fourth.
The Warriors had lost 30 consecutive games in San Antonio dating back to February 1997, including game one’s double-overtime thriller, which saw the Spurs come back from 16 points down over the final four minutes of the fourth.
On Wednesday, San Antonio pulled within six down the stretch, but missed six consecutive shots to fall short.
Tim Duncan scored a team-high 23 points, while Tony Parker added 20 in the loss.
Game three is scheduled for Friday at Oracle Arena in California, where Golden State won both meetings during the regular season.
