Spurs Have a Habit of Bouncing Back

Russell Westbrook Tim Duncan

Many pundits around the NBA have labeled Oklahoma City’s playoff run as a vital one due to the looming free agency of Kevin Durant. OKC showed they weren’t dead yet in their Game 4 victory over the Spurs, as Durant finished with 41 points en route to a pivotal 111-97 result to knot the series at two.

Shark Bites
  • The Spurs are 3-1 ATS in their last four games at home.
  • The visiting team is 2-6 SU in its last eight games in this matchup.
  • The Thunder are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games on Tuesday.

The good news for Spurs backers is they have a penchant for bouncing back. In San Antonio’s last 16 games after a loss, they’ve gone 14-2 SU. The Thunder, who opened as 7-point underdogs, have not been reliable in this spot. Russell Westbrook and company are 1-11 SU and 1-10-1 ATS in their last 12 when tabbed as underdogs of seven points or less.

A big reason for the Spurs’ recent slide has resulted from some major stagnation in ball movement. San Antonio had an incredible 39 assists in a Game 1 rout, but have collected 19 assists in Games 2 and 3 and 12 in the Game 4 setback.

UNDER bettors would be wise to consider the total in this game, which opened at 199.5. The UNDER is 4-1 in the Spurs’ last five with a closing total of 199.5 or more.
