Spurs Have Absolutely Owned Timberwolves at AT&T Center

The San Antonio Spurs are one of the best home teams in the NBA year in and year out, but their dominance over the Minnesota Timberwolves in the Lone Star State is unparalleled. The Spurs will look to post their ninth straight victory over the Wolves at the AT&T Center on Tuesday, where sportsbooks opened them as 12-point home chalk with a total of 208.

Shark Bites
  • The Spurs are 6-0 SU in their last six games after a loss.
  • The Timberwolves are 0-5 SU in their last five games on the road.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Timberwolves' last seven games against teams with winning records.

In fact, the T-Wolves haven’t won in San Antonio since April 17, 2013. The Spurs are a stellar 45-9 SU at home vs Minnesota.

San Antonio is coming off a rare second-half collapse in Saturday’s 108-105 setback to the lowly Phoenix Suns in Mexico City. The Spurs led by 11 points in the third quarter before letting the Suns go on a big run. Kawhi Leonard posted a career-high 38 points in the tilt.
