San Antonio Spurs Preview

The San Antonio Spurs recorded one of their worst performances of the season in their last game. They were outscored 10-35 in the first quarter, and it was always going to be an uphill task to overturn that kind of a start. This match was crucial in the context of the play-in tournament qualification, with New Orleans being their direct rivals in this scenario.

Only four players registered more than ten points, with All-Star Dejounte Murray (18 points) leading the charge for the side. The Spurs suffered on the boards and with their poor shooting efficiency. They were outrebounded 58-40 while making only 36% of their shots from the field.

The Spurs will have a solid chance to beat the Warriors as they are without talisman Stephen Curry. San Antonio will have to be wary of the threat the rest of the squad possesses, though. The Dubs still have three highly efficient players that could be decisive in Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole.


San Antonio Spurs Predicted Lineup

G - Dejounte Murray | G - Joshua Primo | F - Devin Vassell | F - Keldon Johnson | C - Jakob Poeltl.


Golden State Warriors Preview

The Golden State Warriors are again dealing with the absence of an All-Star. This time around, it's their main man, Steph Curry. Golden State hasn't played many games without Curry this year, so Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and Jordan Poole will have their tasks cut out before he returns.

The Warriors are up against a Spurs team that is dealing with injuries to plenty of key players as well. Steve Kerr's side will be eager to brush their dismal showing against the Celtics aside and return to winning ways. Golden State had no answers to Boston's stingy defense as they were held to only 37% shooting from the floor.

Golden State will need to create better scoring opportunities. On the defensive end, the Dubs need to be active in the interior and also keep San Antonio's offensive rebounding in check to have a healthy chance of beating them on Sunday.


Golden State Warriors Predicted Lineup

G - Jordan Poole | G - Klay Thompson | F - Andrew Wiggins | F - Draymond Green | C - Kevon Looney.
