San Antonio looks to get back on track after suffering a 106-94 defeat to the Oklahoma City Thunder as four-point road underdogs last time out, while going UNDER the betting total for a fourth consecutive contest. The Spurs are led by the play of forward Tim Duncan and point guard Tony Parker—averaging 15.2 and 16.9 points per game respectively.

San Antonio has scored 100-or-more points in 58 games this season—marking the most such games since Duncan arrived in the Lone Star State in 1997-98.
Sports bettors will likely back the Grizzlies due to the Spurs being 1-5 ATS in their last six games following a SU loss.
