In what was billed as one of the biggest regular season games in NBA history, the San Antonio Spurs came out on top in the clash of the titans against the Golden State Warriors. 

The defending NBA Champions were handed just their seventh loss of the season as they struggled, and Warriors point guard Stephen Curry stepped up and took the blame for the poor performance. 

Golden State just never got into a real groove on offense, with Curry and Klay Thompson both ending the night with shocking three-point percentages. Speaking after the game, the reigning MVP put that on him.

"I didn't allow us to get comfortable offensively,” Curry told Ethan Sherwood Strauss of ESPN.

Curry had Spurs players hounding him for pretty much the entire time he was on the court in San Antonio.

Curry struggled to find enough space to confidently get off his shot, finishing with just 14 points on 4-of-18 shooting. No one else on the Warriors really stepped up with Curry struggling, shooting just 38.7 percent as a team.

"The biggest thing tonight was, we were trying to exploit that spacing by shooting a bunch of perimeter shots," Curry said. "That's fine if they're going in. But you know right away, missed my first three or so, struggled a little bit in that first quarter. You gotta be able to attack the basket a little bit more."

The game was a preview for what we could expect in the Western Conference finals later this year. Right now, it looks like the Spurs may well hold the advantage.
