5 things to watch: Spurs vs. Warriors Game 4

The San Antonio Spurs (6-1) will look to put a stranglehold on their Semifinals series versus the Golden State Warriors (5-4) today in Oakland.

The Spurs are coming off an impressive 102-92 win over the Warriors in Game 3 in Oakland. Tony Parker had a monster game leading the team with 32 points and five assists. However, Parker was hobbled a bit when he took a knee from Jarrett Jack to his calf but should be good to play in Game 4.

Warriors' Stephen Curry also tweaked his left ankle in Game 3 and is a game-time decision for Game 4.

And as the Spurs look to take  commanding lead over the Warriors, here are five things to watch for in Game 3:

• Tony Parker scored 32 points at Golden State in Game 3 which marked his 75th career postseason game to score 20-or-more points.

• The Spurs are 3-0 on the road in the postseason when leading after the first quarter.

• The Warriors haven’t won two series in the same playoffs since winning the NBA Championship in 1975.

• The Warriors have won seven of their last nine home playoff games.

• The Spurs are 3-0 on the road in the postseason when leading after the third quarter.
