The Golden State Warriors got five on it. Five being games left in the season, and it being Dub Nation’s frayed nerves from watching the defending champions stagger through a difficult repeat campaign.

But trust me Warriors fans, things could be worse. You could be rooting for an old dynasty that has completely fallen off the map, like their opponent tonight in the San Antonio Spurs.

For most of my life, the Spurs treated the Warriors like a punching bag. As recently as 2013, the Spurs had won 16 straight games against the Dubs. And then by the time 2014 rolled around, San Antonio had started a fresh streak, winning 5 in a row against the Dubs.

The Spurs were the league standard for championship-level consistency thanks to the disciplined of Coach Gregg Popovich hall-of-famers like David Robinson, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili.

And although the Spurs still employ Coach Pop, there glory days during their five championship run are long gone. They’re currently in the running for the Victor Wembanyama draft sweepstakes with an abysmal 19-57 record. They also are one of the teams on a very short list of squads who have a worse road record the champs at 6-31.

The last time these two teams met, the Warriors went berserk and outscored them 144-113.

Go for 145 tonight, fellas!
