Warriors and Spurs Set to Rekindle Rivalry at Oracle Arena

The Golden State Warriors set an NBA record with 73 wins in the regular season last year, but no one is talking about that now. After relinquishing a 3-1 lead to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals, all the Dubs did was add the best free agent on the market in Kevin Durant. Durant will make his regular season debut with the Warriors when they host the San Antonio Spurs to open the season Tuesday.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Spurs' last six games against the Warriors.
  • The Spurs are 0-3 SU and ATS in their last three games on the road against the Warriors.
  • The total has gone UNDER in four of the Warriors' last five games as favorite.

Durant joins a lineup that already contains fellow MVP Stephen Curry and all-stars Draymond Green and Klay Thompson. Golden State’s offensive potential is downright scary when you remember they led the Association in scoring last year with Harrison Barnes at small forward. Golden State was particularly great at Oracle Arena in 2015-16, going 39-2 SU at home.

Perhaps we’re used to them being perennially competitive, but the Spurs never seem to get attention despite being one of the top teams in the NBA. The Spurs lost future Hall of Famer Tim Duncan in the offseason, but they helped fill the void by signing veteran big men Pau Gasol and former Warrior David Lee.

In four regular season meetings last year, the Warriors were a great bet against the Spurs. Steve Kerr’s squad went 3-1 ATS against San Antonio in 2015-16.
