Injuries are depriving us from watching the Spurs thrive in the clutch

“The Warriors will be going for another sweep, but this time we are talking about the second-seeded San Antonio Spurs. The spread for Game 7 favors Golden State by 11 points, but while this is the first time in the postseason the Warriors are double-digit road favorites, they have won 10 of their last 12 games by double figures, so that doesn’t really come as a surprise.” —...
