The hosts struggled early in the game, committing five turnovers in the first five minutes, and only made their first triple with 7:53 left in the second quarter.

They survived a total of 15 turnovers, which the Spurs turned into 23 points.

Poole makes history

The 23-year-old joined the Splash Brothers with 200 3-pointers this season, making the Warriors just the second team in league history to ever do it.

Poole, Curry and Thompson now join James Harden, Eric Gordon and Ryan Anderson of the 2016-17 Houston Rockets, per NBC Sports.

Curry was 7 of 11 from deep. Thompson went 7 of 14 from deep while Poole was 6 of 13 from deep. The young guard was happy to be in great company.

“It's really special to be a part of, second team in history to do it,” Poole said. “Up there with really good company.”

The Warriors play the Denver Nuggets, Oklahoma City Thunder, Sacramento Kings, and Portland Trail Blazers.

Curry's new Under Armour deal

Sports Brief earlier reported on Curry signing a new lucrative deal with Under Armour.

The deal is set to extend into his retirement. The four-time NBA champion has been with the brand since 2013.

The details of the deal were not disclosed, but it would reportedly be the richest-ever endorsement deal once everything is factored in.
