Watch Live: ESPN, NBCSA
Spurs are ready to take on the Warriors at the Oracle Arena tonight. We can expect a thrilling matchup between a good defensive team Spurs v/s the league-leading offensive team Warriors.
Let’s take you through the previews for tonight.
Golden State Warriors:
Speaking of the Golden State Warriors, they are one of the hottest teams right now as they have won 12 games of their last 13. With Cousins getting more and more minutes in the games, they are looking even better than before.
Stephen Curry is in a great shape averaging 29.2 ppg this season with Kevin Durant averaging 27.5 ppg. Both of them are expected to score big numbers tonight.
San Antonio Spurs:
On the other hand, Spurs have given rest to DeRozan and Aldridge due to Load Management; the same reason Lakers gave for James’ absence from the lineup against the Warriors on Saturday.
Having the two-star players out of the lineup, rest of the Spurs team will have an uphill task against the defending champs. Rudy Gay and Davis Bertans are in good form with Paty Mills and Bryn Forbes in the starting lineup.
- Warriors Last 10: W-L 9-1
- Spurs Last 10: W-L 7-3
- Last Matchup on 18/11/2018: Spurs 104 – Warriors 92
The Warriors have one of the best offences in the NBA, so I expect the Spurs to have a hard time tonight. Moreover, the two starters have been rested for this game which further degenerates the scenario for the Spurs tonight.
I think Warriors will have a great chance to increase their winning streak with the home court advantage, and I hope Spurs does just enough to get covered in this one.
