The San Antonio Spurs are surely getting sick of the Golden State Warriors.  

After sweeping San Antonio in last year’s Western Conference Finals, the Warriors seized a 2-0 lead in their first-round series Monday with a 116-101 victory at Oracle Arena. The offense ran through Kevin Durant, as Stephen Curry is still sidelined with a Grade 2 MCL sprain, and the reigning NBA Finals MVP responded with 32 points and six assists on 10-of-19 shooting from the field.

Klay Thompson found his stroke in the second half as well and added 31 points behind five made triples.

The Spurs received an inspired performance from LaMarcus Aldridge (34 points and 12 boards) and kept things close throughout much of the contest after losing by 21 in Game 1, but they didn’t have enough weapons to counter the home team.
