The Golden State Warriors' stellar 2021-22 campaign ensured them a place in the playoffs for the first time in two seasons. Despite all the injuries and setbacks they have faced, the Dubs have managed to stay competitive and rack up 51 wins this season.

Steph Curry, who started the season on fire, seemed to be in a slump since December, but with the Warriors making the postseason for the first time in two seasons, he will be gunning to perform at his best. He, along with Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, will be the leading forces for the Dubs. The trio have not had much playing time together so far this season, but once they are all back, it is going to be very tough for opposition teams to take them down.

The Warriors are in incredible form going into the game against the Spurs and would want to grab their fourth win in a row to help boost their morale for the playoffs. Klay Thompson has been given the rest, which means that youngsters like Jordan Poole and Jonathan Kuminga will have the chance to shine and take over the game.

San Antonio Spurs Preview

The San Antonio Spurs are a young side with a lot of talent on their roster. Despite not having any big superstars, the Spurs managed to bag a play-in spot. If they somehow manage to make their way through two teams and reach the playoffs, it will be the first time that the Spurs reach the postseason since the 2018-19 season.

Dejounte Murray has been their star player this season. The youngster proved to be a triple-double machine and his exploits helped him make his way into the All-Star team. He has been listed out against the Dubs due to a non-covid related illness, but the Spurs will be hoping for him to return to his best by the time the play-ins arrive.

The game against the Warriors is good preparation for the young Spurs. They will be playing without a few of their starters, which means that the bench players will get a chance to showcase their talent.

The team has bagged some great wins in the past week and will once again be looking to cause a major upset by putting on a stunning show against the Warriors in their final home game.
