Stephen Curry showcased his brilliance with 35 points and seven 3-pointers, leading the Golden State Warriors (8-9) to a 118-112 victory over the struggling San Antonio Spurs (3-13) in a thrilling In-Season Tournament game.

Curry’s exceptional display, coupled with contributions from Dario Saric (20 points) and Klay Thompson (15 points), lifted the Warriors to their second win in nine games, revitalizing their hopes of advancing out of Group C in the in-season tournament.

Despite a late push from the Spurs, Curry’s four crucial free throws and Thompson’s timely pair secured the Warriors’ victory, ending a losing streak that had plagued them in recent games.

Gary Payton II’s remarkable defensive play, highlighted by a high-leaping block against 7-foot-3 Victor Wembanyama, added to the Warriors’ defensive prowess.

Wembanyama, the No. 1 pick, put up an impressive performance with 22 points and eight rebounds for the Spurs, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Warriors’ offensive firepower.

Devin Vassell’s 24 points and Keldon Johnson’s double-double (22 points, 12 rebounds) were notable efforts for the Spurs, who finished 0-4 in tournament group play.

The Warriors, missing Draymond Green due to suspension, now look ahead to his return on Tuesday at Sacramento, where they aim to secure a quarterfinal spot in the In-Season Tournament.
