SAN ANTONIO – The top two teams in the NBA, the Golden State Warriors, who lead the Western Conference, and the San Antonio Spurs take the court tonight for the third and final time in the regular season.
The Spurs won the first two meetings.
The game could actually be a preview of the Western Conference Finals since both the Spurs and the Warriors plan on playing their star players, unlike the last time the two met when a total of nine players sat out, including four Warriors.
They come into the contest separated by a two and a half games.
If the Spurs are going to catch the Warriors for the best record in the West, tonight is basically a must win.
"It's a great test, the best test you can get in the NBA today," said Manu Ginobili.
The Spurs are coming off that big win over the Cleveland Cavaliers 103-74 Monday. Holding the defending NBA champs to an opponent low for the season.
The Warriors are coming off a 113-106 win over the Houston Rockets Tuesday night in Houston.
