The Western Conference Finals heads to San Antonio this weekend, as the Spurs will host the Golden State Warriors for Game 3. The Warriors have taken a 2-0 series lead, but this could be the game where the Spurs turn the tide.
The Golden State Warriors continue to be the juggernaut that many of us expected in this postseason. They have now improved their undefeated record to 10-0 so far in the playoffs.
The San Antonio Spurs have had a very different, much more difficult path to this point. They have faced injuries, adversity and two six-game series against the tough defense of the Memphis Grizzlies and the high-powered offense of the Houston Rockets.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors seem to be unstoppable this year, and they look to be on a collision course for a third straight NBA Finals against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
But before they can start counting their chickens, they need to get past a San Antonio Spurs team with second-best record in the NBA and the best coach in the game.
The Warriors had an historic comeback in Game 1, coming back from a 25-point halftime lead to take charge and win the game 113-111. They came ready to play in Game 2 and did not need a comeback– leading the entire game and winning 136-100.
Stephen Curry followed up on an incredible 40-point Game 1 with 29 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in Game 2. The benches were emptied early in the blowout, and six other Warriors scored in double-figures.
San Antonio Spurs
It would be pointless to say that the San Antonio Spurs’ chances in this game– or this series– depend upon anything other than Kawhi Leonard’s health.
Leonard is officially listed as questionable, but it is very unlikely that the Spurs can keep from going down 3-0, even at home, without him.
The Spurs were dominant for 3 1/2 quarters of Game 1, but allowed an 18-0 run immediately after Kawhi injured his ankle on a very questionable play by Zaza Pachulia. The Spurs have seemed lost ever since.
Only two San Antonio players scored in double-figures in Game 2: Johnathan Simmons with 22 points and some guy named Davis Bertans with 13 off the bench. LaMarcus Aldridge was expected to step up in Kawhi’s absence– as he did in Game 6 of the last series– but had only eight points on 4-11 shooting.

Free Game 3 San Antonio Spurs vs. Golden State Warriors NBA Prediction:
This is the hardest kind of pick to make, because it depends almost entirely upon the health of one player. But Gregg Popovich knows he cannot hope to come back from a 3-0 series deficit against this team, and I expect Leonard to play.
4* Free NBA Game 3 Betting Pick: Spurs +6.5
If Kawhi plays, I expect the Spurs to win. Even if he doesn’t, I don’t expect them to be blown out at home.
