The San Antonio Spurs face the Golden State Warriors on Saturday night hoping to extend their 12-game winning streak against one of their Western Conference rivals.
The Spurs (52-16) lead the way in the West and in the NBA overall, but they will need to improve on an ugly win over the Sacramento Kings on Friday night if they are to match their longest win streak in six years.
Generally speaking, the offense from the entire roster was below par in Sac, but given that it showed how good they are on the defensive end, they will need both to click against the likes of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.
The Warriors (44-26) have been in impressive form of late too after winning eight of their last 10 and nine of 11 at home which makes this encounter one to watch, particularly given that both meetings this season have seen the two teams split by just two points.
San Antonio have won on both occasions, but there is no doubt that the Warriors have the pieces to cause them problems, and with a raucous home crowd backing them, they will fancy their chances of ending the longest active winning streak in the league.
With both teams destined for the playoffs, it could provide an indication of how they match-up if their paths cross again in the post-season and having played out a thrilling series last year, it promises to be a high-scoring game full of entertainment.
Nevertheless, with the Oklahoma City Thunder applying the pressure in second spot, the Spurs know that they can ill-afford any slip-ups if they are to hold on to having home court advantage throughout the playoffs.
