Warriors Haven't Won in SA Since 1997

The two best teams in the Western Conference are set to do battle Saturday evening when the San Antonio Spurs host the Golden State Warriors. Tonight’s contest marks the first of three meetings between the clubs remaining in the 2015-16 campaign. Golden State hammered San Antonio 120-90 in their first matchup of the campaign back on January 25. The UNDER is a hot bet when these teams collide, evidenced by the OVER/UNDER going 1-5 in their last six tilts.

Shark Bites
  • Warriors are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest.
  • The OVER is 4-1 in the Warriors last 5 road games.
  • The UNDER is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings between the Spurs and Warriors in San Antonio.

If you’re even semi-familiar with the NBA, you know just how exciting this game is going to be for hoops fans. But what you may not know is just how much the Dubs have struggled at AT&T Center. The Warriors have lost a staggering 32 straight regular season games in San Antonio, a streak that started when Tim Duncan, 39, entered the league. Their last victory in San Antonio came all the way back in February of 1997.

While the Warriors (62-6 SU) have been hogging all the headlines, the Spurs (58-10) have been chugging along quietly at a potentially historic pace. Tony Parker and company have a better scoring margin (+12.3) than the Warriors (+11.5).

All of the talk has been about Golden State chasing the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls’ 72-win record, however. A traditionally unselfish bunch, the Spurs are just fine with flying under the radar. Make no mistake - this team is just as dangerous in the postseason as the three-point happy Warriors.
