Preview: San Antonio Spurs vs Golden State Warriors
On the heels of a two-game homestead, the San Antonio Spurs continue their road trip with a visit to San Francisco and the Golden State Warriors’ new(ish) arena.
The Silver and Black come into the contest riding a pair of consecutive wins and looking to extend their streak to three for the second time this season, only to be rewarded with a matchup with the still incomparable Steph Curry, fresh off of a game-icing shot (and fourteen point fourth-quarter comeback) over LeBron James and the league-leading, title-defending Los Angeles Lakers.
Sporting similar win/loss records, both the Warriors and Spurs have found themselves in positions that have surprised most of the larger media pundits. The Warriors, dealing with the season-ending injury of fellow ‘splash-brother’ Klay Thompson and the all but corporeal collapse of the supposedly gap-filling Kelly Oubre Jr., currently sit a win (and two seeds) behind the Spurs in the standings.
