Golden State Warriors Showdown with Spurs tonight
Warriors Lost to Minnesota 103-102 on Friday night in Minneapolis. They gave up 34 points in the first quarter and trailed by as 17 points as they played from behind most of the night. But they came back and took a 102-101 lead on Stephen Curry’s floater with 19.7 seconds left. Then the Timber wolves’ Andrew Wiggins made two free throws with 12.8 seconds remaining to give Minnesota the lead. Curry missed a potential game-winner from 18 feet with 5.2 seconds left.
Spurs on the other hand Lost to Oklahoma City 102-92 on Thursday night, ending a nine-game winning streak. The Thunder’s Russell Westbrook had 23 points, 13 rebounds and 13 assists. Despite the loss, the Spurs have still won 14 of their past 17 games.
The race to No one spot By sitting Curry, Thompson, Green and Iguodala, Kerr might be handing the tiebreaker for the No. 1 seed to the Spurs. The teams play each other three times this season and San Antonio has already claimed the first meeting. If the Spurs win tonight, they would clinch the tiebreaker that would be employed if the teams finish the season with the same records.
