The Warriors are fighting for their playoffs lives, finding themselves 1 game back from the Clippers for the last playoff spot in the west. (They're actually two games behind in the loss column.) The Spurs also find themselves two games behind PHX in the loss column. Here's the Suns remaining schedule:
The Spurs remaining schedule:
Definitely favors the Spurs, but I doubt you can expect PHX to lose more than 3 games the rest of season. So the Spurs can only afford, at most, one more loss this season, making tonight a virtual must win if they want to keep their 2nd seed hopes alive.
