Report: Spurs won’t rest players Thursday vs. Warriors


Following Tuesday night’s shocking overtime loss to the Timberwolves, the Golden State Warriors have to win out the final four games of the regular season to break the 1996 Bulls’ record of 72 wins in a regular season. They have two games left each against the Spurs and the Grizzlies, one in each matchup at home and away.

For at least one of those games against the Spurs, Golden State will have to match up with a full San Antonio roster, according to ESPN’s Marc Spears.

There had been talk that Gregg Popovich might rest his stars in the final two matchups, after the Spurs and Warriors each won one of their previous two games against each other. But at least for the first one, that isn’t the case.
