The Golden State Warriors pulled out to a big lead in a rare road romp over the San Antonio Spurs on 2023.01.14.SAS-GSW. The Warriors ran their basic split cuts and triple split cut plays and the Spurs defense couldn’t handle it. Donte DiVincenzo continued his excellent play by shredding the Spurs for dunks and open shots, by playing well off of Steph Curry’s gravity.
Co-starring Kevon Looney, Anthony Lamb, Klay Thompson, Andrew Wiggins, Draymond Green, Jonathan Kuminga, Moses Moody and Ty Jerome. With Josh Richardson, Jakob Poeltl, Jeremy Sochan, Romeo Langford and Tre Jones.

Saw that Ball is at the dunking phase of his rehab. We didn’t get the dunking update on Steph and Wiggs before they came back. Will we get one for Kuminga or Wise?
Speaking of romps and shredding defenses, I haven't seen the look of futility on Luka's face, that I saw tonight, since the last time he saw GPII. I stayed up to watch the Luca-Dame matchup, as Luka ran his mouth, promising he would outscore Dame...DAME took it personally while registering his 4th 30+ successive game. Advantage Dame, 36-15, as GPII frustrated Luka for 15 mins while dropping 10pts, sinking 2, 3pters, from opposite corners, and snaring 4 steals...where have we seen that fine defensive act and critical offensive spark before.... Meantime GPII still helping us, as with that loss, we are only one loss behind Mavs. Playback 2-nite in Portland on a B2B.
