In what was supposed to be the matchup of the year, the Golden State Warriors (41-4) ran the San Antonio Spurs (38-7) out of the gym in a 120-90 win Monday night at Oracle Arena.
Stephen Curry led the way for the Warriors, posting the most points by any Spurs opponent this season with 37. He was 12-of-20 from the field and 6-of-9 from three-point range.
Klay Thompson and Draymond Green each added 11 points, and a trio of Warriors reserves joined them in double figures. Shaun Livingston and Brandon Rush scored 13 each, while Marreese Speights had 12.
The Spurs were led by Kawhi Leonard, who had 16 points on 4-of-6 shooting. David West and Boban Marjanovic added 12 apiece.
The Warriors now lead the four-game season series, 1-0. The Spurs will get a shot at redemption March 19 in San Antonio.
