One flat game, one Stephen Curry ankle twist, one lost moment, and a whole playoff series flips on its head, again.
One day, everything that was bright starts darkening pretty fast.
On Friday, the Spurs played desperate, slowed it down, gummed it up, and maybe sort of hypnotized the Warriors in Game 3.
And for the first time this series—and the first time at home this entire postseason–the Warriors played slow and played without confidence.
At this crucial moment, they played like they were backing down, not charging forward.
“We’ve battled and we’ve worked hard, I think, except for tonight,” Warriors center Andrew Bogut said.
“Tonight we didn’t play with the mentality we’ve had the whole playoffs.”
