Friendly Confines of AT&T Center Have Been Massive for Spurs

The San Antonio Spurs dropped the first two games of their best-of-seven series with the Golden State Warriors by an average of 18 points and face a must-win Game 3 at AT&T Center on Thursday. A return to Texas could be huge for the Spurs, as San Antonio has gone 11-0 SU in its past 11 home games.

MyBookie opened the Spurs as 3-point home underdogs with a total of 206.

SHARK BITES
  • The Warriors are 41-13 SU in their last 54 games on the road.
  • The Spurs are 0-5 ATS in their last five games in the playoffs.
  • The Warriors are 7-2 ATS in their last nine games against the Spurs.

The seventh-seeded Spurs have dropped 10 of their last 11 matchups with the Warriors, including a four-game sweep in last season’s Western Conference final. LaMarcus Aldridge is doing everything he can to lead the Spurs forward, as the veteran had 34 points and 12 rebounds in Game 2. The NBA was dealt a huge blow when it was announced head coach Gregg Popovich’s wife Erin had passed away on Wednesday, and the legendary bench boss is expected to rightfully take some time away from the team in light of the tragic news.

The Warriors continue to get the job done without all-star point guard Stephen Curry, as the reigning champs have averaged 114.5 points over the first two games of the series. Shooting guard Klay Thompson is averaging 29 points in the series and Kevin Durant is contributing 28 per game. Backup big man David West didn’t participate in Game 2 due to an ankle injury but is expected to be available tonight.

On Wednesday, I broke down how teams that go down 2-0 in a playoff series have a brutal history, which you can read here. Dating back to last year’s playoffs, the Warriors are 8-1-1 ATS in their past 10 postseason matchups. The Dubs went 7-1 ATS as a road favorite in the 2017 playoffs.
