San Antonio had its 11-game win streak snapped last time out, as it dropped a 119-109 decision to the Detroit Pistons as five-point road favorites Friday, while going OVER the posted total of 197.5. “We’ve got to still do things right, still execute and still be on the same page on defense,” commented Spurs guard Stephen Jackson. The Spurs will likely play this affair without the services of Tim Duncan (knee) and Manu Ginobili (hamstring), which means point guard Tony Parker will need to continue raising his play offensively. San Antonio is 15-6 ATS versus Eastern Conference foes this year, which is important to consider when making your NBA picks against the spread Sunday.
The Spurs are 17-10 overall when playing away from the AT&T Center, including a 9-3 mark versus non-conference opponents. San Antonio has won 18 of its last 19 games in this particular series, including a 104-73 blowout victory over Brooklyn as nine-point home favorites on New Year’s Eve. The franchise is second in the NBA in outscoring opponents by an average of 8.1 points per game, while it has used 12 different starters this season.
Brooklyn has alternated wins and losses over its last seven games, as it looks to bounce back from an 89-74 setback to the Washington Wizards as 1.5-point road underdogs, while going UNDER the total for the fifth time in six contests. The Nets will need a big game from point guard Deron Williams, who had averaged 25.8 points in a four-game stretch versus San Antonio before being limited to eight in the first meeting this year. Brooklyn is 0-3 SUATS versus Southwest Division opponents this year, which can’t be ignored when looking over the pro basketball odds page.
The Nets are 18-9 at the Barclays Center, but have dropped five of nine tries versus Western Conference opponents. Since P.J. Carlesimo took over as interim head coach, Brooklyn has compiled a 15-7 record, which has been made possible by scoring 95.7 points per game in that span. Defensively, the goal is to hold San Antonio under the century mark in this affair, as the team has won 23 of 30 games when accomplishing that feat during the 2012-13 campaign.
Sports bettors will likely back the Spurs due to their 27-11-2 ATS mark following a spread loss, while the Nets are 5-11 ATS after suffering a straight-up loss.
