10:21 AM ET 05.11 | Tony Parker danced through the entire game, scoring 32 points to go with five rebounds and five assists to propel the Spurs to a 102-92 Game 3 victory, and Stephen Curry hobbled through much of the final five minutes after once again spraining one of his balky ankles. "I have faith in Steph," said Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson, who scored a team-high 17 points and added eight rebounds. "I think he'll bounce back. ... Hopefully, he's with us. He's our best player. He's our leader." Curry took no pain-free strides after turning his left ankle - not the twice surgically repaired right one - with a little less than five minutes remaining. After twisting the same ankle that needed two anti-inflammatory shots in the first-round series against Denver, Curry intentionally fouled Danny Green to stop the action and tried to walk off the pain. He waved off a substitution as the crowd chanted his name. Mark Jackson said Curry will ice the ankle and get his usual treatment, and then the team will make a decision about his availability before Sunday afternoon's tip

The hopes and dreams of the GSW Fans is almost over. Thompson could not help Jack carry the load with Curry humbling around, the old crew out lasts the young Warriors.

As long as the Spurs continue to matchup with the Warriors they will be alright. They are the better team. Two guys, Curry and Klay, should not beat a great team like the Spurs. Unless Wino Pop shows up again and decides to play Bonner.

Make no mistake about it, the success of the Spurs rests in one stat, Bonner's playing time, when he plays we ALWAYS lose, and when he doesn't we usually win or come very close to winning. Bonner simoly makes you play 4 on 5, and in the playoffs you can't have ANY stretches where that occurs.

I don't know why a so call HOF coach hasn't figured this out yet, all Pop has to do in this series is matchup and stay that way and he will win it. Like I said the other day, Mark Jackson is not a very good coach, all he is doing is riding the hot hand, I don't think that is going to be enough to beat the Spurs. The sets he is running are so predictable it isn't funny. The Spurs are too smart to let the hot hand beat them. The Spurs are going to continue to let Draymond, Landry and Ezeli have shots that they don't normally see while taking away the 1st and second option, Curry and Klay. That is smart basketball. Let's see if G.S. continues to take the bait.

Totally agree with your comments. But saying Mark Jackson is not a very good coach is wrong. David Lee was 30 percent of the offense. Without D Lee the look lost at times, but Coach MJ has done a great job with the hand he was dealt. They beat the Nuggets and they are in the second round. Also have to remember Green and Ezeli are rookies. Klay has only played one season. Curry has played nearly every game this season. Bogut is only able to play 20-25 minutes a game. Still a very very young team. 3 rookies contributing. The positives are there. To win a championship... A long way to go.
