A potential Western Conference Finals preview unfolds on Wednesday night when San Antonio hosts Golden State in a titanic matchup. The Warriors come in with an eight-game winning streak and are coming off of a 113-106 win over another tough opponent, Houston. The Spurs have won five straight themselves and recently thumped Cleveland 103-74 on Tuesday night. San Antonio has won the last two meetings with Golden State. Tipoff is set for 9:30 PM Eastern time and it can be seen on ESPN, NBC Sports (CSN) Bay Area, and FSN Southwest.

Warriors (60-14, 1st Pacific)

Golden State is in the midst of an extremely tough stretch.

They were able to stave off Houston, but they'll have a rematch with them at home right after this game against the Spurs. Just two days after that they'll be hosting Washington. It's going to be near impossible to keep the winning streak going, but if they're able to notch one more victory, especially over San Antonio, it will be hard to dethrone the Warriors from the conference's top seed.

Power forward Draymond Green (10.4 ppg, 8.1 rpg) is probable for the game with an ankle injury. He sprained it in the win over Houston, where he recorded 19 points and 9 rebounds in over 33 minutes of action. Ian Clark (6.9 ppg) had a whopping 36 points against the Spurs the last time out.

Spurs (57-16, 1st Southwest)

Heading into Wednesday's action, San Antonio sits 2.5 games back of Golden State. Their current winning streak has been highlighted by a complete smackdown of Cleveland that also dethroned the defending champions from the Eastern Conference's Top Spot. The Spurs are hoping to do the same to the Warriors, but their road also isn't very easy.

After this one, they'll be heading to Oklahoma City and then returning home to host a feisty Utah squad.

Small forward Kawhi Leonard (26 ppg, 5.9 rpg) missed all seven 3-point attempts against the Cavaliers, but he still finished with a team-high 25 points. He achieved that by hitting 11-of-14 field goals inside the arc and also delivered six rebounds and six assists.

The Spurs are favored by 4.5 points at home and the total O/U is set at 207 points. Golden State is just 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 meetings at San Antonio.
