Warriors coach Kerr uncertain for NBA Finals return

Warriors coach Kerr uncertain for NBA Finals return

Instead, Brown called for Durant to attack the Spurs defense in a pick-and-roll, and Durant sliced through for a quick pull-up that steadied the ship and sent the Warriors on their own 10-0 run that essentially wrapped up the game, the series, and the undefeated Western Conference playoff record. The Spurs kept fighting, they had 13 more shots than the Warriors in the first half - thanks to 9 Golden State turnovers and 8 San Antonio offensive boards - but the Spurs shot 34.5 percent in the first half, and it wasn't enough because the Warriors shot 60 percent.

The short-handed Spurs fought hard once again without Kawhi Leonard, but their season comes to an end and now the questions begin, specifically about Ginobili's future.

Draymond Green added 16 points, eight rebounds and eight assists for Golden State in the easy win at the AT&T Center.

Shooting guard Klay Thompson (14.4 points) and center-power forward Draymond Green (13.9 points) also are playing with goal as the Warriors try to bounce back from blowing a 3-1 lead in the 2016 NBA Finals.

Ginobili was a surprise starter for the Spurs in Game 4.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Golden State made sure the inevitable was unavoidable.

"We started him tonight out of respect", San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said.




Mills and Ginobili have become two of San Antonio's most beloved players.

Leading by 14 points at half-time, the Warriors never looked in doubt at winning their third Western Conference title in a row.

"I'm getting closer and closer (to the end of my playing career)", Ginobili told reporters after the game. The biggest difference is the addition of Durant, who left Oklahoma City in the offseason to sign with Golden State.

This season, Ginobili averaged a career-low 7.5 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 69 games.

"An unbelievable competitor, even more fun playing against him", Durant said of Ginobili. Either way this LeBron Vs. Steph on-court feud is going to be fun to watch for the third time, assuming the Cavs get it together to make it to the finals. Since the 2012-13 season, Ginobili has started just three times in a total of 325 regular season games.

Golden State Warriors' Kevin Durant stands with members of the media using his smartphone to take pictures of his mother, not pictured, posing with the trophy after their 129-115 win over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 4 of the National Basketball Association. "We've got two days off, which is also good as well, but we've got to lock back in and get ready for the next series". "But I'm hopeful stuff will get figured out".

"No excuses but a lot of unfortunate things happened, but we still tried to compete and do the best we could do", Aldridge said.
