Golden State Warriors vs. San Antonio Spurs: Game 5 Postgame Grades and Analysis
Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The San Antonio Spurs dominated the Golden State Warriors in Game 5 with a commanding 109-91 win.

The Spurs used a big third quarter, in which they outscored Golden State 29-21, to pull away from the Warriors after leading by just three points at halftime.

Transition baskets off the Warriors' 14 turnovers were major difference-makers in the second half for the Spurs. 

Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combining for 13 points on 6-of-22 shooting from the field didn't help the Warriors fight off the Spurs either.

Tony Parker led the way for the Spurs with 25 points and 10 assists, while Tim Duncan scored the 143rd playoff double-double of his career with 14 points and 11 rebounds.

But the most impressive performances were the combined dominance by Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard, who played with constant energy and combined for 33 points on 13-of-18 shooting. 

Game 6 is set for 10:30 p.m. ET in the raucous Oracle Arena, and while bouncing back from an 18-point loss won't be easy for the Warriors, when Curry and Thompson are on the court anything is possible.
