Golden State Warriors vs. San Antonio Spurs: Game 2 Postgame Grades and Analysis

Each second-round series is now tied up 1-1, thanks to the Golden State Warriors and their impressive 100-91 victory over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 2.

The Spurs, who gave up just 96.6 points per game in the regular season, gave up 62 first-half points to the Warriors, with 29 of them coming from Klay Thompson.

If it wasn't for Tim Duncan and Tony Parker's combined 30 point in the first half, the refs may have called this one early because no one else on the Spurs' roster came to play.

In the first half alone, the Spurs went 0-of-7 from deep, as compared to the Warriors who shot 9-of-16 from beyond the arc—led by Thompson's pure 7-of-8 first-half performance from three land.

The Spurs cut the Warriors' lead to just six points at one point in the fourth quarter, but unlike Game 1, Steph Curry and Co. always had an answer.

Tony Parker and Tim Duncan combined for just 13 points in the second half, and their lack of production hurt the Spurs down the stretch when they needed someone to step up.

Klay Thompson and Steph Curry led the way with 56 of the Warriors' 100 points, albeit on 20-of-46 shooting from the field. 

It would be amazing to see the Warriors put together a complete game in this series, because for at least half of each game played, they've looked like the better and more dominant team.

Game 3 tips off Friday at 10:30 p.m. ET at ORACLE Arena in Oakland, and it's sure to be one for the ages.
