Stephen Curry will intensify on-court rehabilitation, re-evaluated in one week

Warriors more concerned with playing well than taking night off against the Jazz

Pau Gasol #16 of the San Antonio Spurs high fives teammates after a basket against the Houston Rockets at AT&T Center on April 1, 2018 in San Antonio, Texas.

The Warriors (58-24) will look to flip the switch to playoff mode while hoping to continue their recent success against the Spurs (47-35), who were beaten three of four times by Golden State this season. And both were right on the cusp of ending their droughts this year; Casspi was waived by Golden State because it needed a roster spot once he hurt his ankle, and Cousins tore his Achilles' to end his season with New Orleans.

Gregg Popovich has mixed and matched his lineups this season, but this is the group that has started the majority of the time.

The Dubs defeated the Spurs past year on their way to the title.

No active players have appeared in more regular-season games without any getting any postseason run than Casspi and Cousins. "They'll get their guys back and they have enough guys I think they can survive until they get everybody back". Gay was a very nice addition. "This team has fought and put ourselves in a position to be here".

That saga has led to rumours of tension between Leonard, Spurs management and team-mates, and led to speculation that the player wants out of San Antonio. Their offensive rating (points per 100 possessions) of 107.9 ranked 17th in the league.

The teams will begin the playoffs on Saturday. These were, somewhat clearly, the two best teams in the conference and arguably the entire league.

The Egypt global also faces off competition from Tottenham striker Harry Kane and Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea . His range of passing, crossing and set-piece deliveries have been a key part of City's armoury.

However, they do have Jimmy Butler back and if Andrew Wiggins gives it more than 60% - seemingly his default setting - and Karl-Anthony Towns can take over a game or two, they might make it interesting.

Throughout their two decades of excellence, the Spurs have shown a remarkable ability to change their style of play on the offensive end. "It's hard. When you play them, there's nothing easy". This season, Curry played in 51 games, averaging 26.4 points, 5.1 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game.

San Antonio Spurs vs.

The Warriors are now in second place in the Western Conference and would host the Minnesota Timberwolves in the first round if the season ended today. My prediction is a 40-10-8 game.

Despite the injuries, the Celtics are a good defensive team but they could have trouble scoring points.

Their leader, former Longhorn LaMarcus Aldridge, has continued to build a case that he is still one of the top players in the league, perhaps even worthy of first-team all-NBA consideration. KD is one of the toughest guys to cover in the entire league, and he can nearly single-handedly win the Warriors the series if he gets it going. Popovich should already be in the Hall of Fame and half of his squad is heading in on their first year of eligibility. They know each other well and they play to their strengths. But now that Duncan has retired, it appears there is a void that can not be filled even by the likes of Kawhi Leonard (who has played only nine games this year and presumably won't be available in the postseason).

In this piece, we break down for you the specifics of this exciting first-round series from the Western Conference playoffs.
