Odds favor San Antonio Spurs to close out Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of NBA semifinals
Warriors only have one NBA title under their belt

OAKLAND, Calif. - Forgive the San Antonio Spurs if they aren't that excited about holding a 3-2 series lead over the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference semifinals.
After all, they've been ahead twice before.
If the Spurs want to close out the Warriors in Game 6 on Thursday night at rowdy Oracle Arena, they'll have to do what neither team has in this series: win consecutive games. Golden State also is 4-0 after a loss in the playoffs.
The odds are stacked in San Antonio's favor.
The Spurs have won 11 of 12 best-of-seven series when leading 3-2. The last time the Warriors came back from a 3-2 deficit was against the Chicago Bulls in the 1975 Western Conference finals, when the franchise won its only NBA title.
