Warriors, Spurs, in-need of wins for better standing

The Golden State Warriors and the San Antonio Spurs are two teams who badly need more wins after failing to impress in their recent matches. The Warriors lost to six of their last eight matches, while the Spurs lost five of their eight matches. This meeting happens on November 15, 2022, at 11:00 AM (GMT+8), with the Warriors hosting the Spurs. This match is the first meeting between these two teams this season, and is the first of their three matches in the regular season.

This will be a tough match-up, as the Spurs are about to face the defending champions, the Warriors, in a match where the hungrier wins. Last season, these two teams met for four times but the result of those four were split. The Spurs are in 6-7 while the Warriors are in 5-7, so they need as much wins as they can so they could stay at least at the middle of their conference standings.

The Warriors play the second night of their back-to-back games when they face the Spurs in this match. Coming into this game, the Warriors are seeking to get their third consecutive wins, after failing to be impressive with their recent results. They won only twice in their last eight matches, which means that they need to work on something to improve. On their last meeting, they were able to defeat the impressive Cavaliers, in a 106-101 victory. Moreover, their three-point shooting have been their key for this victory, which is the expertise of the Warriors. This squad scores 112.6 points per game while allowing their opponents to score 115.2 points per game.

Stephen Curry have been unbelievable on their last meeting, scoring 40 points, with that, he is now averaging 33.3 points per game. Although he leads his team, he also gets contributions from guys like Andrew Wiggins, Jordan Poole, and Klay Thompson.

The Spurs on the other hand is looking to finally get their second straight victory in this game, but it will not be easy for them. They are about to meet a hot-hand Warriors, which is a very dangerous team. However, they can get confidence from the fact that they gave the Bucks their second loss this season, after their perfect run since the start of the season. They are lucky enough that they met the Bucks without Giannis Antetokounmpo. Just like their opponent, this team is also hungry for more wins, which made this match more exciting. They are currently the 20th offensively with 110.4 points per game, while giving up 115.5 points per game, making them the 28th worst in the NBA.

Keldon Johnson leads the Spurs averaging 23.6 points per game, while Devin Vasssell is also averaging double digits with 21 points and 3.8 assists per game. Guys like Jakob Poeltl and Tre Jones also provide numbers for the Spurs.
