The San Antonio Spurs will be looking to advance to the Western Conference finals for the second consecutive season when they visit the Golden State Warriors in today’s NBA Game of the Day. However, if the Spurs want to win Game 6 and close out the Warriors tonight they will have to become the first team to win consecutive games in this series. Through the first five games of this Western Conference semifinal matchup, San Antonio has won the odd-numbered games while Golden State has won the two even-numbered matchups.
If the Spurs can break that cycle and win this final even-numbered game, they will close the series and move on to the Western Conference finals where they will face the Memphis Grizzlies. But before they can even think about any potential conference finals date with the Grizzlies, the Spurs have to figure out a way to win one more game against the surprising, fearless and resolute Warriors.
Including Tuesday night’s 109-91 Game 5 loss in San Antonio, Golden State has lost five games this postseason. The Warriors successfully rebounded from those first four losses and will try to duplicate that feat at home tonight. And if they want to continue their surprising run, the Warriors have no choice but to do just that.
