The San Antonio Spurs lost their second game in as many nights on Friday, losing to the Golden State Warriors on the road 110-99.

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich basically punted the game, electing to rest his players on the second night of a back to back. No San Antonio player saw floor time of more than about 25  minutes.

Stephen Curry finished the game as the leading scorer, putting up 25 points for the victorious Warriors. In addition to his 25 points, Curry also collected 11 assists. Klay Thompson was also strong for Golden State, putting up 20 points.

The Spurs were led by Aron Baynes and his 12 points and 10 rebounds. Kawhi Leonard was another San Antonio player who finished in double figures scoring, going 5-of-7 for 12 points.

B+. Although Kawhi Leonard was only on the floor for 19 minutes, he turned in a very efficient game. The former first-round pick ended the game tied for leading scorer of the team, scoring 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting. Leonard also added six rebounds and a block in his sparse playing time. That kind of quick scoring burst is exactly what Leonard needed after struggling for the last few games.. SF. San Antonio Spurs. KAWHI LEONARD

TIM DUNCAN. B-. <strong><a rel=. PF. San Antonio Spurs

Aron Baynes gets the highest player grade on the night just for the type of effort he brought in his start. The Australian big man would not let limited minutes deter his production, finishing with a 12 point, 10 rebound double-double. That makes three in a row solid games for Baynes. Good for him, especially considering the fact that he seemed to fall out of the rotation in early January.. C. San Antonio Spurs. ARON BAYNES. A

SAN ANTONIO SPURS BENCH. A+. The San Antonio Spurs bench played admirably on Friday night, combining for 61 points. Unfortunately for the reserves, and the Spurs, they were just outmatched by a far more talented Warriors team. Seven guys registered seven points or more against the Warriors with the leader of that bunch being <strong><a rel=. .
