The Warriors haven’t won against the Spurs in 28 games in San Antonio. That’s saying a lot, considering they only play there a couple times per season. This is a building where Tim Duncan has never lost a game to the Warriors when playing at home, and I’m sure the Warriors would enjoy a flawless road trip. With the way that they’ve been playing lately, and the injuries to Tony Parker, the Warriors may actually have a shot at beating the team with the best record on the Western Conference. They don’t, however, fall easily at home.

Key of the Game:

Attack the PG Spot, go to Curry: Stephen Curry was an elite player in the matchup with Stephen Curry. If the Warriors want to win this contest, he needs to have a big night. The San Antonio PG’s aren’t the best players and certainly aren’t yet capable of averaging double digits. If Stephen Curry has a huge night, the Warriors will be in reaching distance.
