The San Antonio Spurs take on the Golden State Warriors in a nationally televised game with definite playoff implications on Wednesday night. Tip-off is scheduled for 9:30 p.m. ET, and the Western Conference showdown will air on ESPN and can be live streamed on WatchESPN.
The Warriors slumped after the All-Star break when Kevin Durant went down with a terrifying MCL sprain, and they briefly surrendered the West’s No. 1 seed to the Spurs in mid-March. But they have since won their last eight games, including a seven-point win in a defensive exhibition against the Houston Rockets on Tuesday.
The Warriors drew the short end of the stick, though, and see the Spurs in the second game of a back-to-back. Science says they should rest their stars, though the NBA is staunchly against doing so on a national stage.
What’s at stake: The Warriors are 2.5 games ahead of the Spurs for the top seed in the West. A Spurs win will cut that deficit to just 1.5 games. San Antonio has seven games against playoff opponents remaining on the schedule. Golden State has just four. The Spurs need this win to challenge for No. 1. A Warriors win all but cements their standing atop the conference.
Season series: The Spurs have blown the Warriors out in each of their two matchups. San Antonio pummeled Golden State, 129-100, in the season-opener. And with both teams lacking starters (Spurs due to injury, Warriors due to rest), Gregg Popovich coached his way into a 107-85 win over Steve Kerr.
Injuries: The Spurs are without rookie point guard Dejounte Murray (left groin injury). The Warriors are without Kevin Durant (sprained MCL).
Top players: Spurs — Kawhi Leonard (26 PPG, 5.9 RPG, 1.9 SPG), LaMarcus Aldridge (17.6 PPG, 7.4 RPG), Pau Gasol (12.3 PPG, 7.7 RPG)
Warriors — Stephen Curry (24.9 PPG, 6.5 APG, .398 3PT%), Klay Thompson (22.3 PPG, .418 3PT%), Draymond Green (10.4 PPG, 8.1 RPG, 7.1 APG)
Kevin Durant’s status: Durant was re-evaluated on Wednesday, four weeks after suffering a Grade 2 MCL sprain against the Washington Wizards. ESPN.com’s Marc Stein reported he will likely make his return in the final three games of the regular season.
