With Cavs, Warriors in town, Spurs get playoff preview this week
SAN ANTONIO - Golden State is 2-1/2 games ahead of the Spurs with 10 games to go. Houston has all but locked up the No. 3 seek, and Utah is trying to hold off the Los Angeles Clippers for the No. 4 seed.
Kawhi Leonard scored 29 points, LaMarcus Aldridge added 19 points and 10 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs beat the New York Knicks 106-98 on Saturday night. That win helped the Spurs (56-16) keep pace with the Warriors (59-14) for the No. 1 seed.
Game 1 against whoever the Spurs get in the first round begins in three weeks, but if you need a quick preview, this week would be a perfect time to tune in and watch.
The Spurs have another marquee schedule, including two home games that fans have circled on the calendar for months.
LeBron and the Cavaliers will be here tonight, Golden State comes into San Antonio on Wednesday, and the Spurs are at Oklahoma City on Friday.
There's no word yet on if any of the stars will rest. The Warriors do play here on the second night of a back-to-back so caution to those who might have tickets, but whoever suits up for either side, there will be a playoff-like feel to the games this week.
