Red was a little too busy yesterday to comment on the much anticipated game between the Spurs and Warriors on Monday night. The game featured the teams with the two best combined records ever to meet this late in the season. The Warriors and Spurs had combined to win over 88% of their games. However, the defending NBA champion Warriors put a brutal butt-whipping on the Spurs last night in a 120-90 victory proving that they are the best team in the NBA right now. The NBA’s best offense overpowered the NBA’s best defense – albeit playing without Tim Duncan. Red is almost thankful that he did not get to watch the Warriors dismember the Spurs on live TV.
Even with all-world defender Kawhi Leonard on him, Steph Curry still managed to torch the Spurs with 37 points on 12 of 20 shooting. It was as if the Warriors still believe they have something to prove despite being defending champion and having tied an NBA record for best start after 45 games at 41-4. Meanwhile, the Spurs will have more than a month to regroup and get ready for the Warriors when they come to SA in March.
