San Antonio Spurs vs Golden State Warriors Predictions
San Antonio and Golden State meet for the second time this season. The Spurs and Warriors have been consistently on top of the Western Conference over the last couple of seasons. Right now, the Spurs find themselves with a 35-21 record, which puts them in third place in the Western Conference. Golden State has gone 42-13, which puts them on top of the Western Conference.
The Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs met early in the season in San Antonio. Golden State won 112-92. The Warriors top four were dominant in that matchup. Klay Thompson scored twenty-seven points, Kevin Durant dropped twenty-four, Stephen Curry had twenty-one points and Draymond Green scored sixteen points. Nobody else on the Warriors were able to drop double-digit points. LaMarcus Aldridge scored twenty-four points and had ten rebounds.
Rudy Gay and Kawhi Leonard have been ruled out for Saturday night’s game. Dejounte Murray is doubtful for the evening. Jordan Bell is the only player on the Warriors who is out for the game against the Spurs. Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson are averaging a combined seventy-three points per game. Draymond Green is the only other player averaging double-digits in points for the Warriors. Green averages eleven points per game. Green also leads the team in rebounds and assists per game. He averages eight rebounds and seven assists.
San Antonio Spurs +11 (-105) at Golden State Warriors -11 (-115)
Kawhi Leonard has missed all but nine games this season. In Leonard’s absence, LaMarcus Aldridge has been the player who has stepped up. Aldridge averages twenty-two points per game and nine rebounds per game. Pau Gasol averages eleven points per game and eight rebounds per game. The Spurs have a good rotational team, which has worked for years under Gregg Popovich.
This matchup is a typical game of Offense versus Defense. The Warriors enter the night averaging 115.5 points per game. Golden State has the second-best offensive rating in the league, which is at 114.8. The Spurs defense has allowed only 97.7 points per game. San Antonio has a defensive rating of 103.4, which is second in the league. If the Warriors can dominate the Spurs defense once again, Golden State will pull off a big victory. I believe the Spurs defense could slow down the Warriors offense.
The Warriors are laying eleven points against the third seed in the Western Conference. That is a lot of points to lay even at home. On top of that, the Spurs are also the better payout team. The Spurs are a great team and they play great team basketball. I believe they keep this game much closer then expected.
