SAN ANTONIO (Sporting Alert) — After stealing Game 4 to even up the series, Stephen Curry and Golden State Warriors will look to push on and claim another win over the San Antonio Spurs in their Western Conference semifinal Game 5 clash at AT&T Center here in Texas.
Curry, who had to take a painkilling injection to be ready for Sunday’s game, said he’s feeling much better tonight and is not expected to take another ahead of Tuesday’s clash.
The point guard scored 22 points in the comeback 97-87 overtime victory on Sunday and he’s hoping the visitors can find a way to steal another win at the AT&T Center, just as they did in the 91-100 victory in Game 2
“It’s almost like we played better there, and they played better here,” Curry said.
“I don’t know what to read into that, but I think the way that the game flowed (Sunday), kind of a low-scoring versus high-scoring early in the series, you just don’t know what to expect.”
The Spurs are a very tough team to beat at home, but after giving one up in the series on home court, star forward Tim Duncan warns his teammates about getting too comfortable.
“They’ve already won one here, so there is no reason to be comfortable here,” Duncan said.
The veteran also believes that Tuesday night’s game is a massive one for them in the series.
“We’re happy we have home court and we’re happy to have a game (in Oakland), but there is no comfort level.
“We’re 2-2. This next game is a huge game for both teams.”
Leading point Tony Parker is still having trouble with a bruised left calf, but starts alongside Danny Green in the guard positions.
