It’s never going to get old beating the Spurs. I’m always going to think of the Spurs as the Warriors kryptonite, and it’s always going to be a surprise when the Warriors win. As I said earlier:

I was delighted to see Patrick McCaw and Jordan Bell side by side during the deciding stretch of the 4th quarter. Draymond Green was out with 5 fouls and the Spurs had closed to within 9, so out to stop the bleeding come McCaw, Bell, Shaun Livingston, Kevin Durant and America’s favorite gravity vortex, Stephen Curry.

I was extra delighted that the young guys got to run a number of plays in a row and make the reads and passes to make the play go. Bell continued his very solid work reading defenses and passing, and McCaw got on his inner Nick Young and canned two huge catch-and-shoot 3s.

Here’s a short video about it:
