The Golden State Warriors appeared to put their late-season struggles behind them as they forged a pair of dominant performances against the San Antonio Spurs in their first-round National Basketball Association playoff series. The Golden State Warriors won both of their home games and lead the series 2-0.
Aldridge elevated his performance by grabbing 12 rebounds and scoring a game-high 34 points. The Spurs have never dropped six consecutive postseason games under Popovich, though that streak will likely be seriously tested unless San Antonio comes up with some very different ideas very quickly. San Antonio was 4 for 28 on 3s in Game 2. She was 67. If Popovich does not coach the Spurs tonight, assistant Ettore Messina would probably take over. As long as players like McGee, David West and Andre Iguodola continue to contribute, the Warriors will be extremely hard to slow down. Also, with the Warriors in a bad run of form - ending their regular season with 10 losses in their last 17 games - many feared the reigning champions may underperform against the Spurs. Four of the five starters for the Warriors (Iguodala, Thompson, Green, Durant, and Green) all finished with at least five assists.
