WARRIORS VS. SPURS
Thursday’s season finale will mark the third matchup with the Spurs this season and the second in the last week and a half. The Warriors, motivated for one last strong performance in front of the Oracle Arena faithful, will try to end their 14-game losing streak against the Spurs. San Antonio, meanwhile, has already clinched the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference and will be looking for one final regular season tune-up before beginning the 2012 NBA Playoffs.
ONE MORE CHANCE
Thursday’s season finale will give Klay Thompson one more chance to show that he is indeed deserving of being named to the NBA’s All-Rookie Team. He currently leads all first-year players in both free throw shooting percentage (.874) and 3-point percentage (.418), and he’s fourth in scoring (12.4 ppg). Furthermore, he leads all rookies in scoring in April (18.7 ppg) and he’s led the team in scoring in four of the last five games.

The guard is expected to make a full recovery and can anticipate returning to on-court basketball activities in approximately 3-4 months. Bogut will have an arthroscopic procedure on his fractured right ankle on Friday and Lee will undergo surgery on Thursday to repair a torn abdominal muscle.
