Well hello, Warriors cheerleaders. Call me? No? Okay.

We’re at the half at Oracle Arena with the Spurs leading 47 to 40. Leading San Antonio in scoring is Tim Duncan with 13 points on 5/6 shooting. For the Warriors, Stephen Curry is putting the team on his back with 16 points, but on 14 shots.

Both teams came out of the gate kind of slow, but the Spurs had their shot falling toward the end of the 1st quarter, which helped sparked a 10-0 run to start the 2nd quarter. Good news for the Spurs, they’re shooting 50% so far and limiting the Warriors to 40%. Bad news, Golden State already has 7 offensive rebounds, but have only converted that into 3 points.

A scary moment in the second quarter, as Harrison Barnes took a terrible fall and landed on his head. He was helped to the locker room, bleeding from his head. No word yet on the injury or if he’ll return.

24 minutes left. Go Spurs Go.
