The Golden State Warriors play host to the San Antonio Spurs tonight at the Oracle Arena.
The Spurs will be gunning for a 14th straight win tonight after making light work of the Lakers in a 108-95 win on Friday. Kawhi Leonard had a nice game of 18 points while Patty Mills added 15 points in just 18 minutes off the bench, but the player of the night was definitely Manu Ginobili who turned back the clock with 20 points on nine of 10 shooting. The Spurs have now won five of their last six games by double digits to improve to 38-6 overall this season and 14-6 on the road.

Meanwhile, the Warriors continued their reign atop the rankings with another dominant victory, this time beating the Pacers by 122-110 on Friday to remain undefeated at home. Stephen Curry dominated the game with 39 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists, Draymond Green added 22 points while Klay Thompson had 18 as the Warriors won their first game with coach Steve Kerr back in the driver's seat. With the win, Golden State improves to 40-4 on the season and a perfect 20-0 at home.
In ATS trends, the Spurs are 4-1 ATS in their last five road games and 14-5 ATS in their last 19 games following a win, while the Warriors are 1-4 ATS in their last five home games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games following a win.
Head to head, the Spurs are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings overall and 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings in Golden State.
This is the matchup we've been waiting for all season and it should be a good one. Tim Duncan will sit out this game due to knee soreness which is a big loss for the Spurs but even if he did suit up, I'd still side with the Warriors who have been unbeatable at home all season.
