On the floor, the Spurs managed to get the last laugh after they got the better of their opponents. The game went down the wire with the Spurs holding a slim 103-100 lead with 8.7 seconds left in the fourth quarter.
Draymond Green wanted to bait Derrick White for a foul but ended up throwing an ill-advised shot near half-court. The botched play iced the game for the Spurs as they emerged victorious with a 105-100 win.
Curry once again topped his team in scoring after producing 32 points along with seven rebounds and six assists. Kelly Oubre Jr. chipped in 24 points while Andrew Wiggins generated 11 points, five rebounds, and four assists for the Warriors.
On the other end, Spurs guard Dejounte Murray came up big on the defensive side after recording eight steals. He also led the team with 27 points and 10 rebounds. DeRozan provided a lift for his team as well with his final output of 21 points, six rebounds and 10 assists.
The Spurs further extended their three-game winning streak to account for a 14-10 record to sit at the fifth spot in the Western Conference. Meanwhile, the Warriors dropped back to a 12-12 win-loss tally for the ninth seed.
San Antonio will aim to carry over the winning momentum as they host the Warriors on the second game of a back-to-back set on Feb. 9.
