The game deemed “Game of the Season” will have an asterisk by it when the Warriors and Spurs finally meet for the first time this season.
Golden State holds the top spot in the West, but hanging with them right on their heels has been the San Antonio Spurs.
Why the asterisk by this game? The Spurs will be without Tim Duncan here on Monday making this not a complete game with full rosters.
Tim Duncan has been battling knee soreness and the Spurs felt it was best to let him sit out as they’ll eventually get their chance at Golden State somewhere down the road. Still, San Antonio has been hot, winning 13 in a row and don’t show any signs of slowing down.
Now, the Spurs just aren’t winning games by a slim margin, they’re destroying opponents during this winning streak.
San Antonio has won 10 of their 13 games during this winning streak by double digits. The Spurs were in Phoenix and Los Angeles on Thursday/Friday and had no problem handling them as they won by a combined 41 points in both games.
The Spurs have gone a ridiculous 55-9 against the Warriors since Duncan joined the Spurs.
The Warriors have been sending a message to the Eastern Conference lately and now they’ll get a shot at the team everyone says is better than them despite the standings.
Golden State has held a lead in the West for the entire season, but that hasn’t stopped people from making the Spurs the better of the two teams.
The Warriors went on an East coast swing and absolutely demolished the East’s best 2 teams. They went into Cleveland on national TV and led by as many as 40 in the game. The next night, the Bulls proved to be equally no match as the Warriors did similar things.
Even better news for the Warriors, Curry looks like a man on a mission right now. The star guard has hit at least 7 three pointers in 4 of the last 5 games.

Free NBA Prediction:
Even without Duncan, this game holds a lot of hype.
These are easily the two deepest teams in the NBA and have the best starting 5’s out there. Without Duncan here, San Antonio needs to slow the pace down.
Avoiding a track meet is a must here as that plays in favor to the Warriors, big time.
