Because the two-time NBA MVP and three-time NBA champ let one fly from 75-feet at the end of the first quarter in San Antonio and banked it in for a 75-foot 3-pointer.

"I might be delusional, but every time I shoot it, I feel like it's going in", he was quoted as saying by ESPN after the game. "And I think our guys just felt threatened on the road".

San Antonio's winning streak is second only to Golden State's 11 straight wins earlier this season.

Stephen Curry led the Warriors with 25 points, and Kevin Durant tallied 24 in his return to the lineup after missing the past two games with a sprained ankle. One of those losses was an embarrassing 115-111 defeat at the hands of the Phoenix Suns, who are the last place team in the Western Conference.

Golden State trailed by 11 points at halftime before closing the gap to four heading into the final quarter, but saw its comeback eventually ran out of steam as its bench was outscored 41-25 by the Spurs.

San Antonio instead improved to 42-29, drawing level with the Oklahoma City Thunder for the fifth-best record in the conference.

For a team not picked to go far, they are moving in the right direction and getting better at just the right time. I think everyone senses that'.

San Antonio player DeMar DeRozan was the game's top scorer with 26 points, while Curry finished with a team-high 25 for Golden State. In addition to Cousins being out tonight, Andre Iguodala is listed as probable.

"We didn't make shots in the first half and it was tough to kind build momentum", Curry said.

San Antonio cruised from there, leading by as much as 9 points in the payoff period.

Australia's Andrew Bogut, who signed with Golden State on March 6 after playing this season in the Australian National Basketball League, made his season debut for the Warriors.

Bogut played for the Warriors from 2012 to 2016 and was a key member of Golden State's 2014-2015 championship team.
