San Antonio • Klay Thompson scored 34 points, Stephen Curry added 22 and the Golden State Warriors withstood another furious rally by the San Antonio Spurs for a 100-91 victory Wednesday night to even their series at one game apiece and snap a 30-game skid in the Alamo City.

Thompson, who scored 29 points in the first half, added 14 rebounds for Golden State, which had not won in San Antonio since Feb. 14, 1997. Harrison Barnes had 13 points, Carl Landry added 10 and Andrew Bogut had six points and 11 rebounds.

Tim Duncan scored 23 points and Tony Parker added 20 for San Antonio. Manu Ginobili had 12 points and Kawhi Leonard had 11 points and 12 rebounds for San Antonio.

The Warriors host Game 3 on Friday night.

The Warriors blew a 16-point lead with 4 minutes left in regulation in the series opener and lost 129-127 in double overtime. It appeared they were headed for a similar collapse Wednesday night.

Golden State led by 20 points with 8:38 left in the third quarter, but San Antonio pulled within 97-89 on Ginobli's 3-pointer with 4:23 left in the game. It was the closest the Spurs would come, as they missed four of their last five shots.

The double-overtime victory game appeared to leave San Antonio drained in the first half, while the Warriors were energized.

After missing his first two attempts in the series opener, Curry opened Game 2 with a pair of 3 pointers, one over a charging Duncan. He finished with 11 points in the quarter, going 3 for 4 from the field and 2 for 3 on 3s. He was limited to 9 minutes after picking up two fouls.

Curry's second 3 sparked a 14-6 run that gave Golden State a 17-12 lead. He had eight points in the run and Thompson added five. —
