Fact: spurs barely beat warriors despite gsw's 3 best players hurt
That series was pretty close and I'd say the warriors showed that at full caliber, they were better than San Antonio and deep down the players and fans knew it. Games 5 and 6 were extremely close. Parker had to hit that 3 in the last minute. During that game, bogut sat out the 2nd half because he couldn't walk, curry was hobbled, Barnes had a concussion, and David lee had a torn hip flexor. And the game still came down to the last minute.
That's not even counting the game that the spurs had to come back from 18 points in the last few minutes to put them up 1-0. Then the next game the warriors ran them out of the building. Most spurs fans admitted that the warriors were better. There's a reason for that after 2 games. It was becoming obvious that the spurs didn't belong on the same court as the more talented warriors.
With their experience they did adjust and having that first game won didn't hurt them. But during those last couple of games the warriors 3 best players were hobbled and yet the games were decided by one run of scoring. There is no way that the spurs would have won if Duncan, leanord, and Ginobli were as hobbled as the warriors or if one of their stars had a torn hip flexor.
And the spurs were inches away from beating the heat. But they didn't win and I think it all evened out. They got unlucky in game 6 in those last 24 seconds but if it weren't for that unlikely comeback in game 1, against the dubs, they might have not even been there. Fans lost faith, u could tell in the spurs body language that they knew the warriors had something on them. 1 or 2 close games and fans Act like nothing even happened. Let's go back in time, the spurs were doomed. They escaped but it all came back to them in game 6 of Miami when their luck turned.
