Default 2013 Second Round: Warriors at Spurs, Game 1

Game is at 9:30pm ET. Discuss and enjoy!

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich pokes fun at questions from reporters all the time and can be easily irritated and annoyed, especially after losses, which is what made his reaction to Stephen Curry sinking seven 3-pointers in Golden State's 116-106 win over San Antonio last month such a rare scene.
"It's actually fun to watch," Popovich said following the game in Oakland on April 15, when he rested most of his starters. "Everybody hates losing, but I enjoyed watching a talented kid perform the way he did, and he does it with class."
Curry can captivate almost any audience in a way almost nobody else can, and he's led the Warriors to the second round against the Spurs starting Monday night in San Antonio, where Golden State has lost an astonishing 29 straight visits.
What makes Curry so compelling might be the simplest of basketball skills: shooting.
All of 6-foot-3 and 185 pounds, Curry controls games without ever overpowering defenders. His shooting stroke might be the best on the planet right now, and when he gets going, nobody has found a way to slow him down.

Go Spurs! Warriors haven't won here since '97. I don't see that streak ending tonight.

Spurs going to come out rusty.

They haven't played a basketball game in over 3 weeks.

If Stephen Curry is the best guard in the series, and Bogut provides solid rebounding and D, they can win.

Since the Spurs will restrict the Warriors' 3 point shooting without allowing much inside the paint, and their offense is deadly efficient as well as versatile - they are as good at the halfcourt as they are running with the warriors - they will win in 5 or 6.

Warriors looking good to start. I think they have a chance in this series.

They do with Splitter out, but once he comes back all hell will break loose.

Only Tim Duncan could have led T-mac to the second round
