Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors are headed into a deep hole that they will have to fight to get out of. They’re currently holding on to dear life as the 11th seed in the Western Conference with a record of 7 wins and 9 losses.
Curry has been carrying the entire team so far with little to no help from his squad. They were on a six-game losing streak before winning against the Houston Rockets and losing terribly to the Phoenix Suns.

Their opponent for the night is the San Antonio Spurs. Unfortunately, the Spurs aren’t having a great season either and haven’t been playing well for a while now. Victor Wembanyama has been arguably the best rookie this year. But his efforts have only helped them to a certain limit.
Currently, on a 10-game losing streak, the Spurs will have an opportunity to capitalize on the Warriors’ dry spell and add to their wins column. This will be an In-Season Tournament Game that the Warriors are hosting.
Stephen Curry is available to start for the Warriors vs. Spurs game
Stephen Curry has been active and dominant this season. He has been averaging 29.4 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 3.8 assists per game this season while shooting lights out from three-point land.
However, the only injury listed at the moment is Gary Payton II. He tweaked his ankle during the Warriors’ loss against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Payton was diagnosed with a minor foot sprain. However, the Warriors have listed him as probable for the Spurs game tonight.

San Antonio has no injuries recorded at the moment. This is a great opportunity for them to utilize and get a victory added to their record. Wembanyama has had a lot of help from his teammates while averaging 18.8 points per game. However, his supporting cast isn’t as consistent as him, which is why they have been struggling to win.

Will Stephen Curry and the Warriors break out against the Spurs?
The Warriors have a lot on the line against the Spurs. Firstly, the absence of Draymond Green will not work in their favor. Green was suspended following a fight that broke out during the Minnesota Timberwolves game. Green had gotten physical with Rudy Gobert and was slapped with a five-game suspension.
Additionally, the Warriors missing GPII will be a setback on the bench. The only upside is that Klay Thompson is slowly emerging out of his slump to support Stephen Curry even more.
Wembanyama and the Spurs will come out with blazing guns and take advantage of Green’s absence. The Spurs also have better scorers in the starting lineup such as Devin Vassell and Keldon Johnson. Wembanyama has been a problem for opponents to defend. The Warriors lack size on their team, which is also a major setback. SAS has a clear lead against the Warriors this time.
