NBA: Spurs vs Oklahoma City


The San Antonio Spurs captured their 19th straight win last night, with a dazzling performance over the Golden State Warriors. It’s a continuous yearly theme for the Spurs that does not skip a beat. Last season the anticipated matchup of the Spurs and Thunder hit a snag when Russ Westbrook’s knee injury occurred. Tonight’s game should have a feel of a Western Conference finals matchup. Lets take a look at it from a point spread standpoint.

Oddmaker’s opened the line in favor of the Thunder at -4. A generous amount of points considering how hot the Spurs have been. Top tier teams in the western conference have been tough to beat at home, and the Thunder are definitely one of the elite. An important element to consider with the Spurs is how poor they were a season ago in back to back games. A main reason that occurred was because of Coach Poppovich’s strategy in reducing or resting his players.

I would not be surprised to see Poppovich pull that type of manuever tonight as he could careless about an early April victory. His eyes and his team’s are on what will be done playoff time. On the Thunder’s side of things they want to get the upper hand at home and do so in front of a nationally televised game.

Play the Thunder tonight at minus four.
