Golden State Warriors wake up in the second half to beat Spurs

Golden State Warriors wake up in the second half to beat Spurs Golden State Warriors wake up in the second half to beat Spurs

Get live updates, news and analysis on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. when the Warriors take on the San Antonio Spurs at Oracle. But they'll be okay with it as long as it leads to lopsided wins.

The banged-up Spurs were without Kawhi Leonard, Rudy Gay, Tony Parker and Dejounte Murray.

With the victory, Steve Kerr became the fastest coach in National Basketball Association history to 250 wins (302 games).

Kerr has lost just 52 times in his career.

Golden State outscored San Antonio by 13 in the third and ended the quarter on a 9-0 run.

Kerr, who won two championships as a player with the Spurs, increased his head-to-head advantage over Popovich to 7-5.

For the second straight game, the Warriors fell behind by double digits in the first quarter before blowing out their opponent the rest of the way. Even more, the Warriors sustained losses from three Western conference teams in Utah, Denver and a 20-point loss to Oklahoma City Tuesday night.

Draymond Green leads the team in rebounds per game (7.9) and assists (7.3) and Durant leads the team in blocks (1.9) and ranks fourth in the league.

Pachulia, celebrating his 34th birthday, hit four of his five shots and all four of his free throws while accumulating 12 points in just 15 minutes.

So we'll see how the Spurs play in what will easily be their toughest game of this year's Rodeo Road Trip.

Popovich, the winningest active coach in the National Basketball Association, fell to 60-18 all-time against the Warriors. They limited the Spurs to 18.5-percent shooting from 3-point range and 45.7 percent from the floor.

The Warriors (43-13) had struggled with a stretch of three losses in four games, but back-to-back victories have them remaining on top of the Western Conference Standings.

With a frenzy of jaw-dropping trades that took place before the National Basketball Association trade deadline on Thursday afternoon, teams are vying for additional pieces with hopes of building a rotation to better compete for a playoff spot, but to also keep up with the NBA's best team: The Golden State Warriors.
