The Spurs slowed Curry early in the fourth quarter, putting the 6-foot-7 Leonard on him. Curry scored only six points in the quarter, helping fuel San Antonio's rally behind Parker and Leonard. Curry had 22 points in the third, including 14 straight late in the period. Curry's run gave Golden State a 90-72 lead with 37.5 seconds left in the quarter.
"We just wanted to keep playing and keep competing," Popovich said. "Try to make stops and try to make some adjustments both personnel wise and defensively to try and get more stops and then stay in attack mode on offense. It worked out. It was anybody's game for sure."
