While everyone is talking about the Golden State Warriors and deservedly so, the San Antonio Spurs are quietly (45-8), which isn’t too shabby.
However, when the two teams met less than a month ago, San Antonio was beat down to the tune of 120-90.
With the Warriors on a quest to back-to-back NBA championships, Manu Ginobili had some interesting things to say about the Warriors.
I know everyone is talking about how great Golden State is and we found out about it the hard way. People wonder what it would take to stop them and it really doesn’t seem possible. Obviously Curry can’t have a good night. But the rest of the team can’t have a good night either, like they had against us and in so many other games. I don’t know if there’s a way to beat them, but for now I don’t care. I would in May or June. Beating them now only counts as one win, nothing more. They are going through a great stretch, playing truly extraordinary basketball and showing tremendous confidence and team spirit. But we’ll try to figure out how to beat them only when it’s do-or-die time.
Now, don’t take this as Ginobili losing hope, but for now, he isn’t too worried about the Warriors. Come playoff time, it’ll be a different story, however.
