NBA Western Conference Finals 2017





Game 1 Videos and Highlights

Game 1

1st Half - The great Pops on full display on the 1st half, adjusting on the fly against the warriors offense. This was probably the adjustment that Pops wants after losing against the warriors and Kevin Durant on OKC on previous play off runs. The first half was all about the defensive effort of the spurs as well as the shot making by Lamarcus and Kawhi leading the half with 17pts and 18pts respectively.

2nd Half - Bad news on Kawhi as he has to go out after twisting his ankle twice on this game. He had to leave the spurs bench with an 18 point lead while Curry is getting hot on his 3's. At this point after confirmation that Kawhi wasn't coming back in the warriors rallied with a 18-0 point run from Curry, Durant and Thompson. Meanwhile Manu giving some fight from the bench while Lamarcus gets his 4th at the end of 3rd they were able to hold an eight point lead.

At 4 minutes left on the 4th the warriors were able to take the lead by 1 after Durant lights up 100 to 101. Unfortunately for the spurs they were not able to hold the warriors and lost 111 to 113.
