Ginobili, Aldridge help Spurs beat Warriors to avoid sweep

The Spurs jumped out to a 14-point half-time lead, but quickly watched it evaporate in the third quarter.

The Spurs bench as well was on fire, especially Manu Ginobli. The couple was married for four decades and had two children - Jill and Mickey - as well as two grandchildren. Kevin Durant led all scorers with 34 points, but it took him 28 shots to get there. San Antonio was up 30-22 after one quarter and extended its lead to 56-42 at the half.

"Things happen sometimes. I said we have to come out here, play confident and take shots with confidence".

Look for home cooking to result in a big uptick in Golden State Warriors' triples on the way to a potential series clinching victory. He also finished the game with three rebounds and five assists.

Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 27 points, including tipping in the go-ahead basket with five seconds left, and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Boston Celtics 104-102 on Sunday to tie their first-round playoff series at two games apiece.

Now the scene shifts back to Oakland.

Cleveland then came roaring back.

Ettore Messina coached the Spurs in the season-saving win as Popovich missed his second straight game following the death of his wife Erin.

"He's really feeling healthy and getting better", Kerr said. The Pelicans are in second with a 10.4 net rating from their sweep of the Portland Trail Blazers. Celtics won the two games he scored over 20 points, but lost the two he didn't.

Warriors' point guard Stephen Curry will begin modified team practices Saturday, the team announced.

Everything that had to go right for the Spurs to win did in the first half. Too often he called his own number, and the offense was predictable and unimaginative.

He added, "This time, he suffered a Grade 2 sprain on March 23 in that McGee collison". The Warriors started the contest with the latter.

Aldridge would finish with 22 points and 10 rebounds, but it's Ginóbili that would steal the show.

Klay Thompson added 12 points despite 4-for-16 shooting and Shaun Livingston had 10 points for the Warriors.

The Warriors have been fortunate that they were able to match up against the Spurs in the first round, because it's nights like tonight where fans can see how important Steph Curry is for the Warriors.

"Guys hit shots. It's the NBA".

Kerr relied too heavily on his isolation game down the line. An eventual loss in the series will send the Spurs to an uncertain summer, one in which Popovich will be confronted with a number of on-the-court issues after a season of turmoil involving Kawhi Leonard's future.
