Klay Thompson sets Spurs ablaze in Game 2 win

Klay Thompson sets Spurs ablaze in Game 2 win

San Antonio, which had only two turnovers in the first two quarters, had eight steals in the first half.

Golden State used a home win in Game 1 as a springboard to a four-game sweep of the Spurs in the Western Conference finals last season. "They were tremendous defensively". I give them credit for taking us out of our offense, we got disjointed there.

But unlike the turnovers from Game 1, which Kerr called "careless", this time it was the Spurs defense causing the majority of the problems. "And so we had a few mistakes that were unforced, but I think majority came due to their pressure. They were getting into us and we just couldn't find a rhythm". They executed the game plan wonderfully. His ability to match up with the Spurs has created an advantage for the Warriors, which they will need to be able to exploit even more during the rest of the series. Durant led the Warriors with 32 points on 10-19 shooting from the field.

Others said they came because, in part, they're afraid of possible repercussions that may follow any action taken by the US. Tensions between the US and Russian Federation have escalated in recent days over the conflict in Syria.

So what was the big rah-rah halftime speech from Kerr that got everyone pumped up?

But this is a different Spurs team, one lacking any consistent offensive threat outside of Aldridge and they couldn't capitalize on the Warriors mistakes. "And then we had to do a little adjusting to it, but we had to expect it". Leonard missed an extended period of time with another injury at the start of the season, but when he returned in December he appeared to be rounding into form.

"You can play that same defense on LaMarcus that he played on him the first game and he's going to score".

Bertans was on the floor for 25 minutes in the game, scoring five points and pulling down three rebounds. He was more assertive from the jump on Monday, using a wide array of moves on McGee, who had stonewalled Aldridge on more than a few attempts in the series opener.

San Antonio looked much better from the opening tip. We were aggressive, played very well. "But you've got to make shots, and it's been like that the entire year on the road for us, for whatever reason, and it really showed up tonight". San Antonio trailed only 80-75 going into the fourth quarter, but Golden State stretched its lead to 15 (94-79) with a 14-4 run capped by back-to-back three-pointers by Draymond Green and Quinn Cook.

Golden State rode Klay Thompson and an energetic third quarter to put away the Spurs 116-101 for a 2-0 series lead Monday.
