Riding high from their win in LA, the Golden State Warriors return home to host the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night. Steve Kerr's side put on a stunning display to come back against the Lakers and won by two points, putting the Warriors onto a 7-6 record.
Arriving in California are a San Antonio side who have won six of their last eight games and are 6-2 on the road. DeMar DeRozan, LaMarcus Aldridge, Patty Mills, and Rudy Gay all scored 20 points or more on Monday as the Spurs triumphed over the Portland Trail Blazers.
Both teams have improved markedly of late and will be looking to continue this form as we near the end of the first month of the 2020-21 NBA season. They should remain unchanged for the fixture. Therefore we can expect an exciting matchup.
