OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The confident aura emanating from the Golden State Warriors right now might be the only thing brighter than those yellow shirts every home fan is expected to be wearing again for Game 3 against the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night at ear-piercing Oracle Arena.
The Warriors have outshot, outrebounded and outhustled the Spurs through the first two games of their Western Conference semifinal. And if not for an unprecedented collapse in Game 1, Golden State would be returning to the Bay Area with a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series instead of being tied.
Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and the hot-shooting Warriors have left the second-seeded Spurs searching for answers. And while there's still a long way to go, sixth-seeded Golden State is no long acting like an underdog.
