Warriors beat Spurs to get edge for play-offs

He is was also spotted on camera by ESPN to be taking shooting drills just before the his team face San Antonio Spurs at the AT&T Center. But don't expect the visiting Golden State Warriors or San Antonio Spurs to put more emphasis on this game than they would any other contest in the run up to the playoffs. For the rest of it, Golden State took over.

OAKLAND, CA - Golden State Warriors Head Coach Steve Kerr earned his 200th career regular-season coaching victory tonight in his 238th game at the helm, becoming the fastest coach to reach the 200-win milestone in professional sports history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

The Spurs are fresh off a dominating 103-74 victory against the Cleveland Cavaliers, the reigning National Basketball Association champions, but coach Gregg Popovich realises that the team has little time to make adjustments ahead of next month's playoffs.

The latter would be a simple process for the visitors' victory, San Antonio Spurs could not reduce the advantage at any time.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich did not mince his words about the quality of his team's Western Conference rivals. "This is a good learning experience. we've got to get better".

Russell Westbrook is having an MVP-type season for the Oklahoma City Thunder, but it's hard to imagine them getting to the Western Conference finals, or knocking off one of the West's top three teams. "I think mentally you can tell, sometimes on the defensive end we just have our ups and downs, and there's not an urgency in what we're doing", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni told reporters after the defeat.

The expectation of a winning team is now there. "Give him a lot of credit, he had really good stuff from the very beginning". Louis opened the scoring in its half of the third with a run built on the speed it didn't display much of previous year .

Curry and Thompson each connected on four 3-pointers.

Rockets: Houston, which shot 16.1 percent on 3s against Golden State on Tuesday, was 12 for 37.

Klay Thompson went scoreless in the opening period and got it going with 11 of his 23 points in the second quarter.

Durant is the Warriors' leader in points, rebounds and minutes per game in his first season with the team. Houston cut Golden State's lead down to four, following Patrick Beverley's steal on Stephen Curry for an easy two. The Warriors gave him a bunch of different looks, including trapping him towards the end of the game. Will the Spurs win another over Golden State, or will the Warriors push themselves closer to the top seed?

The Golden State Warriors just beat the Rockets rather easily a few days ago on the road and are playing some of their best ball of the season right now even without Durant. "Obviously, it's a challenge, but we're going to be that much better when he comes back". Curry added a game-high 11 assists for Golden State.

Harden got the Rockets within seven with 38.4 ticks remaining but the Warriors held on and dealt Houston its first three-game losing streak of the season.
