Five observations from the Warriors' 141-102 win over the Spurs

Five observations from the Warriors' 141-102 win over the Spurs

When one journalist tried to pivot to Wednesday night's game, Durant announced "I'm done, you know you don't care about that" and abruptly left the podium.

That blazing stretch saw the Warriors shoot a blistering 96 percent from the field (yes, you read that right), as they quickly pushed a single-digit lead into 30-plus points of advantage against the visiting Spurs.

The back-to-back National Basketball Association champion then continued to hit out at the media about their treatment of him asking them to "grow up" and not always talk about free agency.

Popovich went on to compare Kaepernick to the likes of Muhammad Ali, Tommie Smith and John Carlos and said he thinks Kaepernick will one day be remembered like them, according to ESPN.

As usual, Stephen Curry did his part by delivering 19 points while DeMarcus Cousins added 15 points in 17 minutes.Absolutely, the high-powered offense of the Warriors evidently smothered the Spurs.

The Warriors just sprayed around 42 assists, scored 49 points in the third quarter, pummeled the Spurs by 39 and moved to 13-1 in their last 14 games.

"I play the right way, I try and play the right way, I try and be the best player I can be". Durant and Thompson combined to shoot 20 for 26 in a matchup of the NBA's top teams in 3-point shooting percentage - the Spurs on top at 40.5 to Golden State's 38.6 going into Wednesday.

Smith and John Carlos earned fame and scorn when they raised their gloved fists on the medal podium at the 1968 Mexico City Games and bowed their heads through the national anthem in protest of racial tension in the U.S. San Antonio is now in the sixth spot of the Western Conference Standings. Golden State had lost the last two matchups with the Spurs, but won their third in a row at home in the series. Alfonzo McKinnie picked up his fourth personal foul at the 6:10 mark of the second, playing only six minutes.
