Stephen Curry heads to locker room

The Warriors hope to pick up a seventh straight win when they host the San Antonio Spurs this Thursday night.

According to oddsmakers at YouWager, the Warriors are an 11-point favorite favorite on the spread line.

The last time the Spurs played, they beat the Memphis Grizzlies, 100-98. So familiar feelings of previous fourth-quarter failings crept in when Golden State ran off a 6-0 run in the first 1:02 of the fourth quarter to close to the gap to 87-84, before Durant eventually closed out the show with a 17-6 Warriors run. It was three free throws.

"We lost the game", Spurs point guard Tony Parker said.

Back in December when he was out, the Warriors tightened up their defense, Kevin Durant took over on offense, and Golden State won seven in a row.

Curry scored two points in two minutes against the Spurs. San Antonio led by eight points with just 4 minutes, 44 seconds left to play after a Dejounte Murray dunk on a fast break.

San Antonio holds records of 37-27 straight up (SU) and 31-29-4 against the spread (ATS).

Golden State is 50-14 SU, but they have trouble covering the spread (27-34-3 ATS). These have impacted the team in nearly every game this season, and will do so, again, vs. the Warriors.

With the Rockets and Warriors not meeting again in the regular season, this race to the finish will simply boil down to which team is able to avoid any slip-ups down the stretch. The Portland Trail Blazers are playing really good ball lately, outscoring teams by 12.6 points in their last five contests, and Lillard usually loves playing Golden State.

The Spurs are 30-9 when they reach 100 points, while the Warriors are 47-10.

Green had his third triple-double this season with 11 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists.

Stephen Curry, the primary reason for Golden State's three consecutive National Basketball Association finals appearances, also missed three weeks in December after spraining his left ankle.

San Antonio ranks 16th in steals allowed per game (7.9) while Golden State ranks 29th (8.9).

The Warriors rank first in blocks per game (7.8) while the Spurs rank fourth (5.6).
