Sputtering Spurs Offense is in Tough With Warriors in Town

Thursday night in the NBA always features a stellar slate of games, and tonight’s matchup between the Golden State Warriors and San Antonio Spurs is shaping up to be one of the best games of the year so far. The Western Conference heavyweights will collide at the AT&T Center.

MyBookie opened the Spurs as 7-point home underdogs with a total of 216.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Warriors are 3-0 ATS in their last three games against the Spurs.
  • The total has gone OVER in 18 of the Spurs’ last 25 games.
  • The Warriors are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games.

The Spurs won their first four games while relying heavily on power forward LaMarcus Aldridge, but the absence of Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker has been very apparent of late. In three losses, the Spurs are averaging just 91.7 points. There is currently no timetable for Leonard to return.

Golden State is turning things around following losses in two of its first three contests. The Warriors put it all together vs the L.A. Clippers in a 141-113 blowout on Monday. The Dubs committed at least 16 turnovers in each of their first seven games but cut that down to 12 against the Clippers.

Rudy Gay has struggled to fill the void left by Leonard, as the veteran is averaging 8.7 points on 9-of-26 shooting over the last three games.

San Antonio fared well vs the Warriors last year, with the Spurs claiming two of the three regular-season meetings between the clubs. Golden State did earn a 110-98 win in its final trip to San Antonio in late March, though.

The San Antonio Spurs were listed earlier as 5.5-point underdogs on the betting oddsboard at Bovada. Those betting on the total OVER/UNDER for points scored have seen that line set at 216.5 for Thursday at shops such as MyBookie.
