Good Morning all.  This isn’t the way I wanted to feel on the day after a Spurs game.  It is what it is and we now travel to Golden State to try and cool down the hot shooting Warriors.  Especially Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry.  We continue on with the scouring of the internet to bring you your Spurs fix.

Here we go on this Thursday morning.

Warriors Party Like It’s 1997, end 16-year curse with Game 2 Win In San Antonio – Project Spurs

The last time the Golden State Warriors won a game in San Antonio, Tim Duncan was a senior at Wake Forest, Stephen Curry was 8-years-old, while his father, Dell, was averaging 14.8 points per game for the Charlotte Hornets.

30 games and 16 years later, the Golden State Warriors finally have another win in San Antonio, staving away a second straight comeback attempt by the San Antonio Spurs in the AT&T Center, winning 100-91 and tying up the series at one win apiece.

Warriors Put Away Spurs In Game 2 – Bleacher Report

Game 2 between the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors was not the same high-scoring affair that Game 1 was, surprisingly enough, but the Warriors managed to even up the series with the 100-91 victory Wednesday night.

San Antonio was able to hit just five of their 21 three-point attempts, compared to Golden State knocking down 11 of 23, and the Spurs just couldn’t mount a huge comeback in back-to-back performances.

Debate: Are The Warrior Matching Up Better With The Spurs Than You Thought – Bleacher Report

San Antonio pulled off a miraculous comeback in Game 1 vs. the Warriors but Golden State showed that they can definitely hang with the number 2 seeded Spurs. Are the Dubs matching up with Tim Duncan and co. better than you thought?

The Golden State Warriors once again controlled the vast majority of the game against the Spurs, only this time they emerged victorious. Although the Spurs did mount several comebacks, the Warriors kept the Spurs at bay with clutch shooting. This time, Klay Thompson was the difference as he scored 34 points to lead the Warriors to victory.

How The Warriors Turned The Spurs Upside-Down – Hardwood Paroxysm

I’ve always been a big fan of doomsday theories; it’s probably part of being a Suns fan. One of my favorites, which popped up during the failed bid by the Mayans to win the 2012 End of the World championship, is the idea that the Earth’s magnetic field might suddenly and dramatically reverse its polarities. In an instant (or a minute, or a day, as there’s usually no timetable associated with this catastrophe, other than it being, you know, sudden), all of our fancy electronic gadgetry that depends on a predictable electromagnetic field would be useless — save classic iPods and original XBox controllers, bludgeoning tools when the time comes to fight your neighbor for the last bag of apocalypse rations from Whole Foods.

It is, unfortunately, nonsense. Earth’s magnetic field does shift, and at times what is now north was magnetic south. Those changes are gradual, though, and no real threat to humanity. I know this because science says so, and science gave us the Magic School Bus, which cannot tell a lie. But watching the Golden State Warriors in the 2013 playoffs, and Wednesday night in particular, really makes it seem that the world is upside down.

Klay Thompson Shoots The Warriors Past The Spurs To Win Game 2 – Pro Basketball Talk

In many ways, Game 2 between the Warriors and the Spurs was similar to Game 1. Golden State got out to a large lead behind one of its guards shooting the lights out, and San Antonio was stuck playing from behind the rest of the way.

San Antonio Spurs Struggle With Golden State Warriors – Rant Sports

The San Antonio Spurs looked worn down from the monumental comeback in game one of their series against the Golden State Warriors.

Down 16 points with less than four minutes remaining, the veteran squad pulled a rabbit out of their hat and won the contest in double overtime.

What occurred in game two seemed like a hangover from the instant classic earlier in the week.
