Stephen Curry targets return for second round of the playoffs

However, the circumstances of their playoff series could not be more different. The Spurs lead the all-time regular season series 107-60 though the Warriors took three of four this season: San Antonio won the last meeting 89-75 at home on March 19.

Both of these teams are great at blocking the ball. The Spurs are arguably in worse shape, as their best player managed only nine games during the regular season and is also unlikely to suit up for the first round. The Pacers have the unfortunate task of playing Lebron James, who has a 10-0 series record in the first round of the playoffs, and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first round.

Neither team has demonstrated championship form this season. This season, the Spurs tied for first in points allowed per game and have used their stifling defense to win a ton of low scoring contests.

For one, the Spurs haven't really been the Spurs this season, dropping to the seventh seed out west, and with 47 victories snapping their phenomenal streak of 18 years with at least 50 wins.

Bettors will be curious to see how Golden State performs in this spot after going 7-10 straight up down the stretch and 6-15 ATS dating back to February 28. Draymond Green did not score a single point in twelve first-half minutes and then sat out the second half.

Game details including the start time and how to watch the Spurs Warriors game live streaming online are ahead.

The Golden State Warriors are going to the playoffs, but not as the 1-seed.

Stephen Curry, the two-time MVP guard, played in only one of Golden State's final 17 games after suffering a knee sprain just as he'd recovered from a sprained ankle.

Then again, the Warriors could be as unsafe as ever once Curry returns from a knee injury that could have him back for the second round. On the flip side, the Warriors were 25rd in defensive rebound percentage and 23rd in offensive rebound percentage this season. In Leonard €™s absence, LaMarcus Aldridge has elevated his game back to the level he was playing at when he was the main guy in Portland.

Danny Green is probably the best defender of this bunch.

For the past few years, Golden State seemed to be the one powerhouse impervious to the seminal claim of Pat Riley, the legendary coach and executive, that winning or misery were the only state-of-mind options for the National Basketball Association elite.

Well, the playoffs are here and San Antonio star small forward Kawhi Leonard isn't.

For more than a month, the Warriors seemed to be collapsing without their best player, Stephen Curry. Now, fresh off inking a two-year deal with Golden State, Cook will try to show that his recent surge can translate to games that matter. This Warriors team can pass, man.

Head coach Gregg Popovich said in early April that the team was awaiting word from Leonard's "group" to find out when or if he might join the team. Curry's statistics are even more impressive once one factor in his efficiency from the floor.
