Expect an up-tempo game when the Golden State Warriors (40-37, 31-8 Home) play host to the San Antonio Spurs (19-57, 6-31 Away) on Friday. San Antonio was beaten by the Utah Jazz 128-117 at AT&T Center on Wednesday, their fifth loss in a row.

Malaki Branham had a standout performance in defeat with 21 points. The Spurs are the 14th seed in the Western Conference. Golden State triumphed on Tuesday at Chase Center, beating the New Orleans Pelicans 120-109.

Stephen Curry had 39 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists, leading the team. The Warriors are the sixth seed in the Western Conference. The teams are meeting for the last time this season.

After winning both of the previous season matchups against San Antonio, the most recent of which was a 144-113 victory at Alamodome on January 13, their third straight head-to-head victory, Golden State will be pursuing a season sweep. Jordan Poole led the Warriors with 25 points, while Donte DiVincenzo was a key contributor with 22 points and seven rebounds.

Tre Jones had 21 points in the losing effort. Keldon Johnson is averaging 22.0 points per game to lead the Spurs in scoring this season. Meanwhile, Zach Collins is grabbing 6.3 rebounds per game, and Jones is dishing 6.3 assists.

Klay Thompson (21.6 ppg) and Poole (20.4) have been the primary providers for the Warriors on offense. Kevon Looney is posting 9.1 rebounds per game, and Draymond Green is tallying 6.8 assists.

There should be plenty of transition offense in this matchup that features the NBA’s two most fast-breaking teams, as the Spurs are first in possessions per game while the Warriors are second.

The Spurs are 3-2 in five visits to Chase Center. San Antonio is looking to end a five-game road losing streak this season.
