◼️ The San Antonio quintet was finally able to beat Golden State’s team this season. The Spurs prevailed 89-75 and reached the fifth spot of the Western Conference.
The Spurs are not resigned to staying out of the NBA postseason. And with so few games to play, San Antonio showed that it will take advantage of any advantage to keep adding in the Western Conference. Like for example this Sunday that surpassed 89-75 to a depleted Warriors to achieve the first victory in four duels against the Golden State team.
LaMarcus Aldridge was the figure of the night with 33 points and 12 rebounds against a rival that did not have Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson and still was ahead in the score in the third quarter. The Argentine Manu Ginobili, acclaimed in the stands by a group of fans who wanted to honor him, played 20 minutes and contributed three units.
However, with an Aldridge on, the locals took off in the last episode and took an advantage that could no longer discount the quintet led by Steven Kerr. With this result, the Spurs climbed to fifth place in their Conference, half a game above the Jazz and the Pelicans. In addition, San Antonio continued to reap victories and now it is heading four at a time when it is not possible to give ground.
