Second game in the playoffs for Golden State Warriors vs. San Antonio Spurs, the first game was a solid victory for the Warriors by 21 points, while San Antonio Spurs had no chance against a “weak” Warriors without Stephen Curry. The home advantage is still thinking about the Spurs, apparently can not win at the home of the Warriors, for the other teams in the league has also been difficult.
Golden State Warriors: A dish without curry, but with victory flavor.
The domination of Golden State Warriors against San Antonio Spurs was evident, since the start of the game the home team had control of the game, in the first quarter, the Spurs could only score 17 points, while the Warriors won the quarter with 28 points, the second quarter was also for the Warriors 29-22 and the only quarter where Spurs could show strength was in the last quarter 29-27 but it was too late.
Golden State Warriors at home has a record since the regular season of 30 wins and 12 losses, with a 71.4% ERA, it is the second best ERA overall after Houston Rockets. The home defense has been doing a good job allowing only 105.2 points on average, and limiting visitors to only 44.5% of field goal, 9.90 three pointers and only 3.60 blocks.
Steph Curry is still recovering from his knee, the injury has progressed, the injury was in March, but Curry is expected to return in the second round of the playoffs (in case the team goes into the second round). The good thing about all this is that the Warriors still have Durant which is already back and has begun to lead the team.
San Antonio Spurs: Kawhi Leonard will not play in the playoffs.
The mystery about Leonard’s injury continues to cloud the Spurs’ expectations in the playoffs, and it is almost confirmed that the Spurs will not have Kawhi in any round of the playoffs, apparently the injury ended early with Leonard’s season. The Spurs miss and need the 16.2 points on average that Kawhi used to contribute to the team per game.
The regular season did not end well for Spurs on the road, the record was negative with 28 losses and only 14 wins, currently the team has a losing streak of 9 games on the road without winning, not only have lost at home the Warriors, but also the Rockets and Thunder, as well as mediocre teams like Lakers and Bucks.
This game will be very manipulated by sportsbooks, I would not like to be in the shoes of the players of the Spurs, since tonight they will surely lose again, leaving a losing streak at home of the Warriors is almost impossible, but not we can discard that the Warriors still have weak points without Curry.
