Curry’s Double-Double Leads Warriors Over Spurs

Curry’s Double-Double Leads Warriors Over Spurs

NBA via Golden State Warriors(OAKLAND, Calif.) -- In the Warriors return from the All-Star break they proved that their league-leading record wasn't a fluke.  

Stephen Curry had 25 points and 11 assists, and Klay Thompson added 20 points in the Golden State Warriors 110-99 win over the defending champion San Antonio Spurs, on Friday night.

The Warriors went ahead by 21 points entering the fourth quarter, which led to Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich resting his starters for the entire period.

Golden State entered Friday night with the best home record in the entire NBA at 23-2.  One of those two losses was to the Spurs back in November.

Former Trail Blazers Forward Jerome Kersey Dead at 52

Jupiterimages/Thinkstock(PORTLAND, Ore.) -- Former Portland Trail Blazers forward Jerome Kersey passed away Wednesday at the age of 52. The cause of death is unknown.

Kersey played 17 NBA seasons, 11 with the Trail Blazers, and was a starter on Portland's 1990 and 1992 teams that made the NBA Finals. He also won a championship as a member of the 1999 San Antonio Spurs team.

Kersey ranks fifth on the Trail Blazers all-time scoring list (10,067) and third in rebounds (5,078). He also played for Golden State, the Los Angeles Lakers, Seattle, and San Antonio before retiring in 1991.

Gregg Popovich Wins 1,000th Game as Spurs Head Coach

Gregg Popovich Wins 1,000th Game as Spurs Head Coach

NBA via San Antonio Spurs(INDIANAPOLIS) -- San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich further etched his name in the history books. On Monday night he won his 1,000th game with the team.

The Spurs rallied from a 14-point deficit to beat the Indiana Pacers, 95-93.

"I've been here a long time and I've had good players. That's the formula," Popovich said. "Getting the players is difficult, but I've been fortunate to have good ones. The time, that's the most important element. You have to be around for a while I guess."

Only Phil Jackson and Pat Riley won 1,000 games faster than Popovich. Former Utah Jazz head coach Jerry Sloan is the only other coach to win 1,000 with just one team.

"A thousand wins, that's a lot of wins and I feel very lucky that I've been with him for a lot of them," said point guard Tony Parker.

Popovich has a career record of 1,000-462. His .685 winning percentage is second all-time to Phil Jackson.

Westrbrook Leads Thunder Past Spurs, 114-106

Westrbrook Leads Thunder Past Spurs, 114-106

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(SAN ANTONIO) -- No Kevin Durant? No problem for the Oklahoma City Thunder were able to top the San Antonio Spurs 114-106 thanks in large part due to point guard Russell Westbrook.

Westbrook dominated on Thursday as he scored a game-high 34 points, pulled down five rebounds, and dished out 11 assists.

"You've just got to rally behind him," said Thunder guard Anthony Morrow. "He's a leader, natural born. He comes out there, he plays hard."

Second-year center Steven Adams had one of the best games of his career as well, as he scored 16 points, pulled down a career-high 15 rebounds, and blocked three shots. Forward Serge Ibaka also added 21 points.

"I thought they outplayed us almost in every facet of the game," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "When somebody retrieves 50 percent of their shots, you can't say you're focused or playing competitive in any way, shape or form."

Spurs guard Manu Ginobili scored 11 points, had seven rebounds, and dished out 13 assists in the loss.

Spurs’ Forward Kawhi Leonard has Torn Ligament in Right Hand

Spurs’ Forward Kawhi Leonard has Torn Ligament in Right Hand

Andy Lyons/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The San Antonio Spurs will be without one of their best players for a little while as forward Kawhi Leonard has a torn ligament in his right hand, and it is unknown when he'll return.

Leonard must wait for swelling to reside before considering returning.

Not as bad as it sounds,” he said. “I should be back soon,” Leonard said via Mike Monroe of the San Antonio Express-News said.

There is some speculation/hope that Leonard will only miss a few games, which would be best-cast scenario for the team.

Leonard is the reigning NBA Finals MVP and a key cog of the team's offense as well as defense.

In 22 games this season, Leonard is averaging 15.2 points and 7.6 rebounds per game. Since his rookies year during the 2011-2012 season, Leonard's points, rebounds, assists, steals, and blocks per game have improved each season.

Young’s Late Three Helps Lakers Beat Spurs in OT

Young’s Late Three Helps Lakers Beat Spurs in OT

Christopher Trotman/Getty Images(SAN ANTONIO) -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young hit a monster three with 7.4 seconds remaining in overtime to help give the Lakers (7-16) a 112-110 win over San Antonio on Friday. Young finished with a game-high 29 points while Kobe Bryant added 22 points and nine rebounds.

"I'm so happy it ended up in my hands," Young said. "I wanted to shoot that bad, especially being on the floor watching Kobe and playing for the Lakers; nothing like those types of shots."

San Antonio (16-7) rallied from down 11 points in the fourth quarter to tie the game and send it into overtime, but Young's shot was too much to overcome. With the shot clock about to expire, and Manu Ginobili in his face, Young let go a 30-foot prayer that found the net for a 112-110 lead. The Spurs had a chance to tie but Ginobili's three-point attempt was off the mark and time expired before another they could get another shot off.

"The last 3, Manu was everything but inside his jersey, and he had to adjust his shot in the air and kind of shoot around Manu's hands, and it goes in," Duncan said. "If you put a team in a situation like that, things like that can happen. We put the blame on ourselves for the 48, 50 minutes before it gets to that point."

The Spurs also had a chance to win it in regulation, holding possession with less than two seconds remaining. However, Duncan missed a 17-foot, turn-around jumper that forced the extra session. Duncan finished with 19 points and 18 rebounds for San Antonio.

Bryant's 22 points leaves him eight shy of tying Michael Jordan for third on the NBA's all-time scoring list.
