Form of the Team-
Golden State Warriors–
Golden State Warriors lost their last game of the NBA regular season to Utah Jazz 119-79, which was their third loss in the last four games. But that shouldn't be a marker for how they may perform in the playoffs as Steve Kerr tweaked his starting line-up in the last few games.
As a team, the Dubs have been the most prolific team in 2017-18 regular season, averaging 113.5 points per game, while allowing 107.5 points per game.
Their over-all shooting accuracy reads at 50.3, while other teams have shot at 44.7 points per game this season.
San Antonio Spurs-
Spurs, too, lost their last game against New Orleans Pelicans and they just managed to make it into the playoffs as 9th placed Denver Nuggets finished just one game behind them in the table.
But Gregg Popovich has marshaled his troops quite well in the absence of his biggest stalwart Kawhi Leonard who has played just nine games in the regular season. While LaMarcus Aldridge has made a name for himself this season and without a shadow of any doubt is the best player in Spurs' ranks.
As a team, Spurs are averaging 102.7 points while opponents have scored at an average of 99.8 points per game against them.

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
This is the serious business. Not a regular season where a team plays a whopping 82 games, giving every team enough time to recover from a bad run of form. But this is a playoff and the time and the number of games is against every team. So a good start will definitely count big for either team.
Warriors are at home, and that makes them favorites in this match. A home win is our bet-
