San Antonio Spurs vs Golden State Warriors
NBA Regular Season
SAS vs GSW MATCH PREVIEW:
Golden State Warriors will look for another high-profile victory when they travel to Texas to face San Antonio Spurs at AT&T Center.
Warriors are on a good run heading into this match despite playing a second string team in the last one month after most of the first-teamers spent most of the time on the treatment table. The Dubs have won 9 of their last 12 games and closed the gap on Western Conference leaders Houston Rockets to just three games.
The Warriors are the best team in NBA as far as average points and assists are concerned. They are averaging 115.5 and 30.0 in that regard, while their 7.7 blocks per game rank 1.7 higher than 2nd placed Toronto Raptors.
Warriors are also the best team in shooting from beyond the arc and have converted a whopping 39.5 three-pointers up to this stage of the season.
San Antonio Spurs, on the other hand, are 7th in the Eastern Conference, and that is because Gregg Popovich’s best player kawhi Leonard is still not out of the operation room. They are just two wins better off than 9th placed Denver Nuggets, so three is a threat that Spurs may even miss out of NBA playoff spot.
But the home team has picked up the pieces in the last week or so as they have won three games on the bounce heading into this match. So there shouldn’t be any shortage of confidence for the home team.
