The Golden State Warriors have continued their perfect run through the playoffs to get within two victories of their third straight NBA Finals appearance.
Stephen (STEH’-fehn) Curry delivered 29 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in just three quarters as the Warriors crushed the San Antonio Spurs, 136-100 to take a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference finals.
Kevin Durant added 16 points for the Warriors, who had assists on 30 of their first 38 baskets while building a huge lead. Draymond Green did a bit of everything in contributing 13 points, nine rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks.
The Warriors also got a strong effort from rookie Patrick McCaw, who had 18 points and five assists off the bench.
The Spurs were without Kawhi (kah-WY’) Leonard, who aggravated his sprained left ankle in the series opener. Without him, Jonathan Simmons scored 22 points as one of San Antonio’s lone bright spots.
The series now shifts to San Antonio for Game 3 on Saturday.
