Last post season these two teams face one another in the Western Conference Finals for the right to advance to the NBA Finals, the Warriors sweep the Spurs that time and this time it looks like the result would be the same as the defending champion easily pass the Spurs in Game 1.
Both teams are missing their superstar players, 2 – time league MVP Stephen Curry is still out due to injury for the Warriors while 2 – time defensive player of the year Kawhi Leonard of the Spurs is still out due to injury also but the Warriors is much better team compares to the Spurs even without their star players.
In the game, Kevin Durant played a huge game dropping 24 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assist, Draymond Green almost gets a triple double added 12 points 8 rebounds and 11 assist while Klay Thompson led the Warriors in scoring with 27 points, 2 assist and 2 rebounds.
The 3 – All – Star took charge without their leading All – Star Stephen Curry to easily bags Game 1. JaVale McGee also played a great game has added 15 points and Shaun Livingston with 11 points.
Meanwhile, the Spurs start the game poor has never found a way to keep up and now might be in danger of taking an early exit of the playoffs? Despite the loss the Spurs are not really expected to beat the Warriors in the series, but might win a game or two?
Without their franchise player Kawhi Leonard the Spurs have no chance of beating the reigning and defending NBA Champion.
