Gregg Popovich will not return to Spurs' bench for Game 4

NBA star Steph Curry is inching closer towards a return to the court for the Golden State Warriors

Sunday seemed ripe to mark the end of their 2017-18 campaign. But the Spurs also understand they're just the third team in the last four years to force a Game 5 with their backs against the wall while facing the Warriors, joining the Houston Rockets (2015 Western Conference finals) and the Cleveland Cavaliers (2018 NBA Finals). Ettore Messina remained in the head coach role he assumed in game 3. "You shake their hands and congratulate them on their way to a possible championship and go home happy".

"I think he should come back two more years", he noted. "I've never been through something like this", Manu Ginobili said Saturday. And that's really been the difference: the Warriors have three stars while the Spurs only have LaMarcus Aldridge.

Ginobili is also now one of just three players in National Basketball Association history age 40 or older to produce 15 points or more and five assists or more in a playoff contest, joining a list that includes John Stockton and Karl Malone.

In this edition of the Warriors Report, we go through the Golden State Warriors Game 4 highlights from their loss against the San Antonio Spurs.

But Sunday, the Spurs made 15 of 28 from beyond the arc, including 8 of 10 when those shots were uncontested, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. See each of these specific websites for more details on how to sign up and watch Sunday's NBA Playoffs game online. The teams were tied several times midway through the fourth, but a tip shot by Thaddeus Young wth 6:13 left gave the Pacers the lead as fans in IN went wild. "Tonight was their night from 3".

This played out in Thursday's first game in San Antonio as the Spurs reached 26 points in third quarter and were kept in check in the others - resulting in a Warriors win. The Warriors as a team shot just 38% from the field and a paltry 25% from 3-point range in the first quarter. He had 16 points total, including 10 in the 4th quarter in what could be his last game in San Antonio.

"They executed, they came out and played with the force that's necessary to win a playoff game and we did not", Kerr said.

"Regression to the mean", explained Ginobili. Even though they vastly outrebounded the home team (61 boards as compared to the Spurs' 34), their shooting woes made their task all the more hard as they trailed for the entire duration of the game. "We deserved it. We got a win and we are happy with that". San Antonio have made adjustments, Golden State have found answers in their depth and versatility while their top two scorers have compensated for the absence of their best scorer. At the start of the playoffs, many people considered the Warriors to have a very challenging first-round matchup.

Golden State closed the first half on a 20-9 run to eliminate a five-point deficit and take a 52-46 lead.

Aldridge finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds for the Spurs, who improved to 83-31 in home playoff games since 2002. Thompson wasn't getting the ball in the best situations for him.
