Oracle Arena played host to a Western Conference blowout as the Golden State Warriors decided to put a beating on the wounded San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs would go into battle without their star player and leader Kawhi Leonard, and it would cost them big time.

The Spurs did not look like the Spurs team many fans were accustomed to watching during playoff basketball. The team was wounded, battered from giving up a 25 point lead in game one. The team still had to come out and perform in game two but it was clear that the San Antonio could not get things moving and it ultimately hurt them. When the final buzzer sounded, the team was still trailing the Warriors by 36 points.

The final score was 136-100 in favor of Golden State.

Not too hot, not too cold

The Golden State Warriors were able to get the ball moving Tuesday night. The team finished game 2 with seven players earning double-digit point totals. Their leader Steph Curry finished the night with the bulk of the point total.

The star point guard ended his second game of the Western Conference series shooting 61% from the field and 66% from the three point line. He was able to contribute 29 points 7 assist, and seven rebounds as the Warriors coasted to victory.

Kevin Durant decided to scrape together 16 points in the Tuesday night victory as he drained 6 out of the ten shots he attempted. Draymond Green and Klay Thompson decided to combine for a total of 24 points as they watched Steph perform from the three point line.

Draymond was able to crash the glass for nine rebounds, one short of recording a double-double. Patrick McCaw was the big surprise of the night.

The rookie was able to score an unexpected 18 points while shooting an outstanding 75% from the field. The Warriors had a great display of team basketball, and the score symbolized their effort as they were able to breeze by the Spurs.

Spurs not getting it done

It seemed as though only one player was ready to play Tuesday night against the Golden State Warriors. Jonathon Simmons was the leading scorer for the San Antonio Spurs as they received a beating from Warriors.

Simmons made 47 percent of his shots which was 2 percent better than his career shooting percentage.

The team struggled to shoot the ball as a whole. At the end of regulation, the team finished the matchup shooting a disappointing 37%.

The Spurs also tallied up a total of 18 turnovers which did not help them recover from the punishment that was being dispensed by Golden State. In a game where there was not a lead change, and the biggest lead was 41 points, NBA fans witnessed what the San Antonio Spurs can bring to the table without their star Kawhi Leonard.

Hopefully, the Spurs will be able to have Leonard active in the lineup Saturday night as they take the matchup to their stomping grounds. The At&T Center will not be a happy place if the team performs similarly to the way they played in game 2 Tuesday.

LaMarcus Aldridge and company must fight back, or they will be in a position to be swept in the Western Conference finals.
