The Spurs have been able to handle just about every team in the NBA this season except the Memphis Grizzlies, but San Antonio will get the chance to rectify that situation on Thursday when two squads meet at the AT&T Center. San Antonio has just 16 losses, but two have come at the hands of Memphis, a team that always gives the Spurs fits. Both the setbacks have been in Memphis — an 89-74 loss on March 6 when the Grizzlies held San Antonio to its lowest offensive output of the season and a 104-96 defeat on Saturday.

Whether or not the Golden State Warriors are actually “furious” that the Oklahoma City Thunder showed insufficient respect for Kevin Durant during his first return trip to Chesapeake Energy Arena last month, it’s clear that there’s still very little love lost between these two teams. With 5.3 seconds remaining, Warriors superstar Stephen Curry and Thunder reserve Semaj Christon were jockeying for position ahead of the referee’s toss of the jump ball. Westbrook — who recently responded to Curry’s pick of James Harden as this year’s NBA Most Valuable Player by asking, “Who’s he?” — quickly got involved, stepping between Curry and Christon before turning to go nose-to-nose with Steph.

There’s not much that will surprise the San Antonio Spurs and the Sacramento Kings about each other when the two teams play for the fourth time this season and the second time in 11 days Sunday at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Tex. San Antonio has won all three of the games this year with the Kings, including on March 8 when the Spurs notched their largest comeback victory under coach Gregg Popovich in overcoming a 28-point deficit to win 114-104 at the AT&T Center. San Antonio played that contest without Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge, who were both resting.
