San Antonio Spurs Player Grades in Win Over Golden State Warriors

By Jay Desai

The San Antonio Spurs claimed their 30th straight regular season home win over Golden State on Sunday, beating the Warriors in convincing fashion, 107-92.

The Spurs gave the Warriors no chance to win early on, leading by 14 after the first quarter and 19 at the half. Golden State, forced to play catch up for the remainder of the game, was unable to establish any sort of positive momentum, resulting in their worst loss of the season.

Kawhi Leonard was the offensive catalyst for the Spurs, scoring a game-high 26. Leonard also created problems for the Warriors by forcing turnovers, coming up with seven steals. Tim Duncan played well for San Antonio as well, 19 points and seven rebounds in 24 minutes.

For the Warriors, it was once again the Stephen Curry show. The MVP candidate did all he could to keep his team in the game, recording 24 points, four rebounds, and six assists.

A+. Kawhi Leonard continued to play out of his mind on Sunday when the Spurs matched-up with the Warriors. Leonard registered a game-high 26 points along with five rebounds and seven steals. His on-ball defense was also superb, forcing the Warriors starting forwards to shoot a combined 4-of-18 for just 10 points. Leonard is playing scary good right now and if he keeps up this pace, San Antonio could be looking at an even better team from last season.. SF. San Antonio Spurs. KAWHI LEONARD

A+. Does Tim Duncan ever run out of gas? It really doesn’t seem like it. The 28-year-old, err 38-year-old, was back at making it look easy on Sunday night against Golden State. Duncan showed once again he can still overpower teams even at this age, putting up 19 points on 6-of-7 shooting along with seven rebounds in only 24 minutes. He also did a great job of boxing out the Warriors bigs, allowing the Spurs to gain an eight rebound advantage over Golden State. All in all, another great performance by Timmy.. PF.

C. The San Antonio Spurs bench was not really needed too much in this game, but, it would have been nice to see a little more production from the reserves. The Spurs bench combined for 34 points, however, that was bested by the Warriors 42 combined bench points. Sure Golden State is one of the most talented teams in the league, along with their bench, but San Antonio needs their bench to be a difference maker if they are to continue to win these kinds of games. The starters can’t always be counted on to produce like they did against the Warriors, especially with an aging core. For those curious, <strong><a href=. . . SAN ANTONIO SPURS BENCH
