Spurs vs. Warriors schedule: Series tips off Monday

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

After advancing to the second round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs with a dramatic series win over the Nuggets, the Warriors will go up against the Spurs in a very tough Western Conference series.

The Western Conference Semifinal series between the San Antonio Spurs and the Golden State Warriors is officially set, and the first two games have been scheduled. The Spurs will host the Warriors for Game 1 on Monday, May 6, and Game 2 on Wednesday, May 8. Both games will be televised nationally on TNT. Game 3 will be in Golden State on Friday, May 10 and will be televised on ESPN.

Stephen Curry has blossomed into an NBA star during the early stages of the 2013 NBA Playoffs, and it will be interesting to see if he can out-duel Tony Parker in a huge series for the Golden State franchise.

The Warriors have had trouble beating the Spurs not just in recent years, but in recent decades. Golden State finally snapped a 16-game losing streak against San Antonio (that dated back to 2008) earlier this year with a 107-101 home win in February. However, they've yet to exorcise their road demons.

Golden State owns the longest active road losing streak to a single opponent in the NBA. The Spurs have recorded 29-consecutive home wins over the Warriors as part of a streak that dates back to Feb. 14, 1997 -- the days of Latrell Sprewell, Chris Mullin and Joe Smith. If Golden State hopes to make this a series, the team will need to snap that unsightly string of losses in San Antonio.
