Golden State Warriors vs. San Antonio Spurs open thread

The NBA's two heavyweights go toe to toe

Erich Schlegel-USA TODAY Sports

One of the most anticipated games of the season takes place tonight in Golden State. The Warriors and Spurs, at full strength, will face off. At stake, the survival of the Warrior's hopes at breaking the record for most wins in a single NBA season. It's clear that the team has put a lot emotionally into their effort to break the record, and if they want the record solely to themselves, they'll have to win tonight and three more times.

While the San Antonio Spurs are known for resting players and not getting too hyped for regular season matchups, everyone will play. It's not entirely clear that the Spurs have as much to play for, though there might be a tiny bit of annoyance at all the attention that the Warriors have received during the season. Or maybe not.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will enter the playoffs as heavy favorites in the Eastern Conference. They'd be heavy favorites to play one of these teams. Discuss the game here amongst friends and frenemies. You can watch it at 10:30 ET on TNT.
