Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - Top Sports -

Thomp­son made both foul shots, then hit a jumper five sec­onds later to com­plete what amounted to a four-point play.

When the All-Star con­nected again from the perime­ter two pos­ses­sions later, the War­riors had their big­gest lead of the game to that point, 88-77 with 10:26 to go.

Con­sec­u­tive 3-point­ers by Green and Quinn Cook al­lowed Golden State to ex­tend its lead to 15 be­fore the West’s No. 2 seed coasted home.

Du­rant hit 10 of his 19 field-goal at­tempts and went 9-for-10 at the foul line for the War­riors, who out­shot the Spurs 52.6 per­cent to 41.2 per­cent.

Thomp­son bombed in five 3-point­ers and An­dre Iguo­dala added four, help­ing Golden State outscore San An­to­nio 45-12 from be­yond the arc. The War­riors made 15 of their 31 3-point at­tempts, while the Spurs shot just 4-for-28.

Iguo­dala fin­ished with 14 points, while JaVale McGee and David West added 10 apiece for Golden State, which won its 11th con­sec­u­tive home play­off game.

Aldridge, held to 14 points in Game 1, re­bounded with 11-for21 shoot­ing and 12-for-12 ac­cu­racy from the foul line.

Patty Mills had 21 points, Rudy Gay and Ga­sol 12 apiece, and Manu Gi­no­bili 10 for the Spurs, who had the worst road record in the reg­u­lar sea­son among all the play­off teams.
