Talking Warriors-Spurs Preview / Game Thread

Tim Duncan's steady contribution over the last two weeks hasn't restored the San Antonio Spurs' reputation as one of the elite teams in the Western Conference.

Duncan's impact in San Antonio's home games against the Golden State Warriors, however, cannot be denied.

The Spurs look to push their home winning streak over the Warriors to 23 games when they close a four-game homestand Wednesday night.

San Antonio will next try to take advantage of a short-handed Warriors team, which despite struggling to put together a healthy lineup, will be going for a third straight victory Wednesday.

Golden State (5-8) is coming off a 111-103 win at Dallas on Tuesday. Monta Ellis scored a season-high 37 points and Anthony Morrow added 27. The Warriors went on a 14-2 run after falling behind 98-89, led by seven straight points from rookie Stephen Curry, who finished with 18.

After using eight players in a 108-94 win over Portland on Friday, the injury-riddled Warriors played only six players Tuesday, with Anthony Randolph scoring nine points in 30 minutes off the bench. They were without Andris Biedrins (strained groin), Raja Bell (left wrist), Kelenna Azubuike (left knee tendon), C.J. Watson (flu), Ronny Turiaf (sprained left knee) and Corey Maggette (left hamstring).

The Warriors snapped the Mavericks' five-game winning streak.

Ellis has been a big factor in Golden State's last two wins. He was 15 for 29 from the field Tuesday after finishing with 34 points in the victory over Portland. He's averaging only 14.0 points in his career against the Spurs - his lowest average against any team in the West.

That's 3 in a row for us. We're starting to take advantage of our easy opponents and playing at home. Let's keep this streak going.

San Antonio has the longest winning streak vs the Warriors @ home in all of professional sports or something like that. I think it was 23 or 24 wins in a row at the AT&T center now, that's crazy.
