Golden State Warriors at San Antonio Spurs
- The Warriors have won each of their 10 games thus far in the playoffs, and are now one win away from tying the all-time record for consecutive wins to begin a postseason (11) shared by the 1988-89 and 2000-01 Lakers.
- The Spurs are down 2-0 in a best-of-7 playoff series for the 10th time in franchise history. They came back to win just one of the previous nine such series, in the 2008 conference semifinals versus the Hornets (won 4-3).
- The Spurs' 136-100 loss in Game 2 was their worst playoff loss since losing by 39 to the Lakers in Game 3 of the 2001 Western Conference Finals (111-72), while the 136 points they gave up were their most allowed in the postseason in a non-overtime game since a 141-111 loss to the Nuggets in Game 1 of the 1985 first round.
- While Stephen Curry is playing in just the fifth postseason of his career, he already ranks sixth all-time in career playoff three-pointers made with 287. He is six threes away from passing Kobe Bryant (292) for fifth place on the list.
- Draymond Green is leading the Warriors in both rebounding (8.9 rpg) and assists (7.1 apg) this postseason, adding 14.1 points per game. He was named to the All-NBA Third Team by national media on Thursday.
- Kawhi Leonard is considered questionable for Game 3, after missing Game 2 with an ankle injury. The Spurs are 8-2 playing without Leonard this season, losing only Tuesday's Game 2 and a February 6 game in Memphis.
