With both organizations going through atypical rough patches, the San Antonio Spurs host the Curry-less Golden State Warriors.

The San Antonio Spurs haven’t had much success recently. They went winless on their recent road trip, sandwiching a blowout to the Phoenix Suns with two close losses against the Sacramento Kings and the Los Angeles Clippers.

Things won’t necessarily be any easier now that they’re at home. They face the defending champions in Golden State. However, the Warriors are not quite as frightening as they usually are.

Draymond Green and Steph Curry are both out due to injury. Combined with the recent drama that has shaken the team, the Warriors have dropped two straight on their Texas road trip against the Dallas Mavericks and the Houston Rockets.

Both teams will be highly motivated to end their losing streaks. For the Spurs, DeMar DeRozan has been putting up career numbers this year, averaging 25.6 PPG along with 6.3 rebounds and assists per game so far.

However, if DeRozan is the only consistent offensive threat the Spurs have, they will soon be on the outside looking in when it comes to playoff seeding. The Southwestern division this year is extremely competitive and San Antonio could find itself at the bottom of the pack if things don’t turn around quickly.

LaMarcus Aldridge has been struggling so far this year as he adjusts to DeMar DeRozan initiating the offense. He has shot 3-of-12 and 3-of-15 his last two games and the reality is that if San Antonio is to have any success this season, they need Aldridge to perform at an All-NBA level.

The visitor’s locker room will have their own embattled former Texas Longhorn star, as Kevin Durant has been dealing with criticism from both inside and outside the locker room. He scored 32 in Dallas, although he went 1-for-7 in the fourth quarter.

Three reasons for recent struggles. Next

Durant will undoubtedly look to have a big game and the Spurs will need to keep him in check if they are to get back on track and over .500 for the season.
