The San Antonio Spurs opted against resting their starters to maintain a rhythm heading into the playoffs, but the Golden State Warriors wasted no time knocking them off beat with a 112-101 shellacking at Oracle Arena.
A dislocated left pinkie finger suffered by LaMarcus Aldridge in the first quarter set an ominous tone from the onset, as the Warriors immediately took advantage of the situation by running off 14 quick points to put San Antonio in a hole from which it would never recover.
