The Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs meet Sunday in NBA action at the AT&T Center.

The Golden State Warriors could use a win here after losing four of their last six games. The Golden State Warriors are averaging 118.6 points on 50.4 percent shooting and allowing 110.8 points on 44.7 percent shooting. Stephen Curry is averaging 29.5 points and 6.1 assists while Kevin Durant is averaging 27 points and 7.2 rebounds. Klay Thompson is the third double-digit scorer and Quinn Cook is dishing 1.9 assists. The Golden State Warriors are shooting 41.1 percent from beyond the arc and 81.8 percent from the free throw line. The Golden State Warriors are allowing 32 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.6 rebounds per game. The Golden State Warriors have lost three straight road games.

The San Antonio Spurs look to snap a three-game losing streak while getting a game above a .500 record. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 107.9 points on 44.2 percent shooting and allowing 108.8 points on 46.9 percent shooting. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 25.6 points and 6.3 assists while LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 17.4 points and 11 rebounds. Rudy Gay is the third double-digit scorer and Bryn Forbes is dishing 2.3 assists. The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 37.2 percent from beyond the arc and 82.1 percent from the free throw line.

The Warriors are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Southwest, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Spurs are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 vs. Western Conference, 14-5 ATS in their last 19 home games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 vs. NBA Pacific. The Warriors are 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings in San Antonio and the favorite is 9-3 ATS in the last 12 meetings. The under is 4-1 in Spurs last 5 overall.

The Golden State Warriors are just a mess right now, as they're playing without some of their best players and seem to have some locker room issues between Durant and others. I don't think you can chop up some of these bad losses to simply being without Curry or Draymond Green. An undermanned Warriors don't simply lose to the Dallas Mavericks or even get smoked by the shaky Houston Rockets. The San Antonio Spurs have issues of their own, but they are rested and have played their best ball by far at home. I don't like the vibe of these Warriors right now. I'll eat the bucket.
