Spurs home/away splits have been monstrous this year, they're atrocious on the road but very good at home. If this was a regular season game sure you'd say Spurs win however this is the playoffs where everyone is playing 110% every night, as Pop said after game 1 that was the most stifling defense they've played against all year. There has obviously been a flick switched since the playoffs started for GSW.
Last year GSW went into San Antonio and cleaned them up twice for the sweep. Winning by 12 and 14 in SA.
Looking back at that series the offensive/defensive rating was 122.2-106.5 in GSWs favour.
In this currently series the offensive/defensive rating is currently 119.6-97.1 which so it's actually a far bigger differential than last year. So what's to stop GSW cleaning house again this year?
