Golden State Warriors to NBA final after eliminating San Antonio Spurs

The Golden State Warriors advanced to the NBA grand final after eliminating the San Antonio Spurs with a 129-115 victory in the Western Conference.
The ‘Warriors’, champions of the NBA 2015, are qualified for their third consecutive final after their triumph against the Spurs.
The Warriors, guided by their point guard Stephen Cuury, author of 36 points, won the final of the Western Conference with a 4-0 sweep against the Spurs, thus preserving their dominance in the 2017 playoffs.
Curry and Kevin Durant led the way for the Warriors to seal the sweep and advance to their third straight final. In addition to Curry’s 36 points, Durant had 29 points.
It was also the third straight sweep series of the 2017 postseason and the Warriors are now undefeated now with a 12-0 record in the playoffs.
Durant, who drew controversy after his move from Oklahoma City Thunder last year to the Warriors, was delighted to be back in another NBA final.
The 28-year-old forward, who also grabbed 12 rebounds and contributed four assists, admitted that he and Curry had rediscovered their understanding after the midseason injury that sidelined him for about 20 games.
“Our chemistry is improving and we are going to need even more to play in the finals,” Durant said after the game.
“It’s great to be one of the last two teams standing; We’ll see what happens, “he added.
Curry meanwhile admitted that he was enjoying his association with Durant.
“Makes the game fun,” he said. “The way we play the game and move the ball, watching him do what he does, it’s a fun way to play and we want to keep it, I’m having fun, enjoying what I do.”
Meanwhile, Spurs fans, for their part, offered what seemed like a farewell to 39-year-old Argentine legend Manu Ginobili, who was given a standing ovation as he left the field.
“He’s someone I grew up watching,” said Durant, adding that “he’s an incredible competitor, I have nothing but love and respect for him.”
The exhausted Spurs, without injured Kawhi Leonard and French point guard Tony Parker, were always chasing the game, but the Warriors’ powerful offense almost always dominated.
The Warriors ‘triumph keeps them on track for an unprecedented third consecutive NBA Finals meeting with LeBron James’ Cleveland Cavaliers, who lead their Eastern Conference final series against Boston 2-1 in their favor.
The Warriors comfortably kept the Spurs at arm’s length, with their multifaceted offense proving to be too much for San Antonio.
