Stumped on what to watch this week? We got you covered. Here is your guide to the best in sports, music, movies, and tv for the coming week.

Monday: 
Warriors vs. Spurs 9:30pm EST, TNT This series becomes immediately more interesting due to the injury to OKC guard Russell Westbrook. Stephen Curry shot the lights out in the first series (.468 FG%/.424 3p%/1.000 FT%). Can he continue it against the far stingier Spurs defense?

Tuesday:
