SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- Even a day later, the San Antonio Spurs still found it difficult to explain how they won the opener of their second-round series against Golden State.
The Spurs overcame Stephen Curry's 44 points and became the first team in postseason history to rally from a 16-point deficit with 4 minutes remaining and earned a 129-127 victory in double overtime on Monday.
Game 2 is Wednesday night in San Antonio.
"I don't know how we managed to tie the game," Manu Ginobili said Tuesday. "We had some really big shots before regulation, in the first overtime and second overtime. It got us the win, but not sure if we deserved it."
After missing seven straight shots, Ginobili hit a game-winning 3-pointer with 1.2 seconds remaining to hand Golden State its 30th straight loss in San Antonio going back to Feb. 14, 1997.
