The 2013 NBA playoffs returned to Texas on Tuesday, May 14, as the San Antonio Spurs hosted the Golden State Warriors in Game 5 of their Western Conference semifinals series.
The Warriors and Spurs entered this game tied at 2-2, as they split games both in San Antonio and at the Oracle Arena. With the series back in San Antonio, however, the Spurs were inevitably hoping to take an ever-important series lead.
So who went up 3-2?
Tony Parker stepped up on both ends of the floor, finishing with 25 points and 10 assists, all the while helping to shut down Stephen Curry. Kawhi Leonard tallied 17 points of his own, while Tim Duncan went for 14 points and 11 rebounds.
On the Warriors' end, rookie Harrison Barnes scored 25 points to make up for Curry and Klay Thompson's poor performances. Jarrett Jack added 20 points and Carl Landry dropped 16 points, while Curry managed to dish out eight assists.
The question is, were the Warriors able to pull off the road upset and move ahead 3-2 in the series as they headed back home? Or were the Spurs able to move ahead and prove their veteran supremacy?
