WARRIORS TIED SERIES AGAINST SAN ANTONIO SPURS
Tue, 14 May 2013 02:30 AM EDT

Jarrett Jack’s driving jumper on the first possession of overtime gave Golden State a lead it never relinquished and the Spurs missed 9 of their 10 shots in the extra session as the Warriors evened the best-of-7, Western Conference semifinal series with a 97-87 victory.

After the Warriors had scored 8 of the last 10 points of regulation to force overtime, Jack’s ring got Golden State rolling in overtime.

The Golden State Warriors did not get their next hoop until more than 2 minutes later, but 2 free throws by Harrison Barnes increased the lead to 4 and the Spurs began shooting themselves out of the game, missing 6 consecutive shots and 2 free throws.

An elbow jumper by Barnes, the game’s leading scorer with 26 points, made it a 6-point game at the 2:12 mark. And when Stephen Curry, who toughed out 39 minutes on a sprained left ankle, penetrated the San Antonio defense for a 3-point play, suddenly it is a 93-84 game with just 1:46 remaining in overtime.

A Danny Green 3-pointer with 1:29 left finally got the Spurs on the scoreboard in the overtime, but that was the team’s last points.

In the meantime, Carl Landry hit a jumper and Jack added two clinching free throws, getting the Warriors a split in their 2 home games after the teams had a win apiece – including a Spurs triumph in overtime – in San Antonio.

Jack backed Barnes with 24 points and Curry finished with 22, hitting 5 of his 10 3-point attempts. Andrew Bogut, in foul trouble almost all of the game, contributed 18 rebounds to the win.

Manu Ginobili had five 3s in a 21-point effort to lead the Spurs. Tim Duncan posted 19 points and 15 rebounds, and Tony Parker added 17 points.

The overtime drought was just an extension of the end of regulation play for the Spurs, who scored only 2 points in the last 3:44 of the 4th quarter. At the same time, the Warriors closed with an 8-2 run to erase an 82-76 deficit and force overtime.

Jack’s 16-footer with 58.5 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter got Golden State 7 at 82-all. But Parker countered with a 15-footer of his own, pushing the San Antonio Spurs back on top by 2 with 39.2 seconds left.

Klay Thompson tied the game again with a driving banker with 30.0 seconds left, after which neither team scored on its final possession, Ginobili misfiring on an open 3 with 16.1 seconds remaining before Jack’s 19-footer just before the buzzer clanked off the rim.

The Spurs’ biggest lead of the final period was a product of a 6-0 run to open the quarter. Kawhi Leonard had two interior hoops as San Antonio went up eight, 68-60. Baseball odds

But the Warriors scrapped back, using a 3-point play and 2 other rings from Barnes and a 3 by Curry with 7:35 left to get within 72-70.

The Warriors had a chance to take the lead on their next possession, but Curry missed a straight-away 3, and the best the Warriors could do before overtime was forge the 2 late ties.
