NBA playoffs: Golden State Warriors beat San Antonio Spurs 97-87 in OT, even series 2-2
Bogut picked up three fouls in the first six minutes, plus a technical foul for arguing with an official after giving up a three-point play to Duncan. Bogut sat out the rest of the first half, and backup Festus Ezeli also had four fouls before the break.
With Curry and Thompson quieted on the perimeter early, the Warriors missed 13 straight shots and went scoreless for 7:10. The Spurs scored 14 unanswered points during that spurt, Ginobili made his first four 3s and the Spurs later took a 41-30 lead midway through the second quarter on Green's put-back dunk.
Curry created just enough space to make two 3-pointers during a 15-6 run by the Warriors at the start of the third quarter. Carl Landry had a three-point play and Barnes added another shot from beyond the arc to give Golden State a 55-51 lead and finally awaken the home sellout crowd.
Parker pounced back with a three-point play, rattling in a layup while getting knocked to the floor by Thompson. He also hit a pull-up jumper in the closing seconds to send San Antonio into the fourth quarter up 62-60.
The Warriors had been 0-3 when trailing after three quarters this postseason.
