Behind ridiculous downtown shooting from Klay Thompson, Golden State cruised to a strong victory.

As it so often is, it was all about the third quarter for the Golden State Warriors. Well, the second and the third.

They trailed the San Antonio Spurs by 10 after the initial frame. They led by three at halftime. They led by 16 entering the fourth quarter. And they won by 17 points, by a score of 122-105.

Klay Thompson led the way with a vintage, blistering performance. He shot 5-6 from downtown, and 10-14 overall, for a highly efficient 25 points.

Stephen Curry added 17 points on just 13 shots, and Draymond Green had a near triple-double with 17 points, 11 assists, and 8 rebounds.

It was a deep performance from the Warriors, who got contributions from nearly everyone. David West shot 6-6 for 13 points, Nick Young splashed in a trio of triples, and JaVale McGee provided defense and energy.

To call it a much-needed win may be a bit of a stretch, but the Warriors were struggling coming into this game. A strong win against a very good Spurs team is never a bad thing.

And hey, if you remove the first quarter, they were nearly perfect!
