Bogut's Warriors bag NBA win over Spurs
By Peter Mitchell
15:40 AEST Thu May 9 2013

For a nervous few moments it looked like it would be a sorry case of deja vu for Andrew Bogut's Golden State Warriors, but this time they fended off the San Antonio Spurs' late surge with a 100-91 victory.

The win equals the NBA western conference semi-final series 1-1 and ends the Warriors' 16-year, 30-game losing streak in San Antonio.

The best-of-seven series heads to the Warriors' home court in Oakland, California, for two games.

"I know it will be a great heavyweight championship fight," said Warriors head coach Mark Jackson, expecting the Spurs to regroup.

"I think this is far from over."

The Warriors should be up 2-0 in the series after enjoying a 16-point lead with six minutes left in Monday's game one, but the Spurs came back and won a double overtime thriller 129-127.

Jackson had Bogut on the bench during Monday's collapse, but he had the big Australian centre on the court in the fourth quarter on Wednesday despite picking up four fouls midway through the third period.

Bogut had 11 rebounds, six points, two assists and one blocked shot for the game, but it was on defence against Spurs All-Star centre Tim Duncan where Bogut excelled.

While Bogut bottled up Duncan and defended the ring, Warriors' guards Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry were phenomenal, shooting their way to what could prove to be a series-defining victory.

Thompson had 29 points in the first half, including seven from eight three pointers, and finished with 34 points for the game, while Curry had 22 points.

"No chance," Thompson said when asked if the Warriors were worried they would allow the Spurs to steal another victory.

"Coach Jackson told us to have amnesia at halftime and that's exactly what we did.

"It's been 30 games since we have won here, so this is everything."

The Spurs, a battle-hardened team led by Duncan and international guards, France's Tony Parker and Argentina's Manu Ginobili, were down by 20 late in the third quarter and with six minutes to go in the final period cut the lead to six points.

The Warriors have made a habit of giving up big leads, twice against the Denver Nuggets in round one of the playoffs and the Spurs on Monday, but Curry said they would not let it happen gain.

"We have been through this experience three games where we have this big lead, and it dwindles away, but we finally learned from it," Curry said.

Game three will be in Oakland on Friday (Saturday AEST).

In the other playoff series on Wednesday, the Miami Heat bounced back from a surprise loss to the Chicago Bulls in game one of their eastern conference semi-final series to easily win 115-78.

The Heat's LeBron James scored all of his 19 points in the first half and the 37-point victory margin was the largest in the team's history.
