The Golden State Warriors won the first game of their matchup with the San Antonio Spurs. The Warriors won 113-92 at Oracle Arena to begin the NBA playoffs.
Both of these teams are without their star players. Yet, the Warriors improved to 1-0 in the series. The Spurs fell to 0-1.
This is a rematch of last year’s Western Conference Finals. When Kawhi Leonard played, the Spurs were dominating up until his injury when Zaza Pachulia collided with him.
Leonard, along with Stephen Curry, did not play in this game. Curry is not expected to play in this series, while Leonard could return if he chooses to do so since his teammates question his injury.
