SAN ANTONIO AT GOLDEN STATE: Monday at 7:30 p.m. TV: NBATV.

- — Barry Stavro

Fourteen weeks into the season and we finally have a showdown between the last two NBA champions and the current two best teams in the league. It’s a fascinatin­g strategic matchup, with the Spurs’ reliance on their dominant frontcourt of Tim Duncan, LaMarcus Aldridge and Kawhi Leonard versus the Warriors’ sharpshoot­ing backcourt of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Over the last three seasons, though, including one playoff series, the Spurs have dominated this rivalry with a 12-5 record against Golden State.
