Spurs Avoid the Broom Refused to get Swept at Home
The San Antonio Spurs refused to let its home crowd see them get swept by the Warriors for two years straight as they kept the peddle down for the entire game.
The Spurs win was in large part due to their success beyond the art. The Spurs shot 53.6 percent from the three-point line versus the Warriors 25 percent. LaMarcus Aldridge led the Spurs with 22 points.
The Warriors struggled on offense as they only shot 37 percent from the field, which made their 27 rebounds advantage have no effect on the game.
The Spurs were also able to force turnovers and protect their possessions as the Warriors had 18 turnovers, while the Spurs only turned the ball over eight times.
San Antonio was put out by the Warriors last season after four games, but this was not to be this year as veteran, Manu Ginobli stepped up huge in the fourth quarter to help the Spurs force a game five and extend their season.
Game five is set for Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. eastern time.
