Much of the credit for Golden State's Sunday victory goes to Stephen Curry, the Warriors' transcendent point guard, and his 37 points, 16 of them in a pivotal stretch of the third quarter.Warriors forward Harrison Barnes had three big baskets and led a group of mostly reserves to a six-point lead over a mixture of San Antonio's starters and bench players.From there, Curry and Klay Thompson took over as Golden State turned a four-point lead into a 90-79 advantage on Curry's finger-roll layup with 1:34 to play. Golden State handed the Spurs their first home loss of the season and ended San Antonio's franchise-high, 48-game regular-season home winning streak that began on March 12, 2015 . Thompson added 14 points for the Warriors, while Draymond Green hit for 11 points.The Spurs (65-15) were led by LaMarcus Aldridge's 24 points and Kawhi Leonard's 20 points and 13 rebounds. The Spurs out-rebounded Golden State 18-11 in the quarter, 6-3 on the offensive boards, which created five second-chance points for San Antonio.The teams fought through tautly played second quarter with the Spurs gaining a seven-point lead twice in the period before Golden State pushed within 31-30 after consecutive 3-pointers by Brandon Rush and Thompson and jumpers by Barnes and Thompson.
