Reeling Spurs Try To Right The Ship Vs Cavaliers

LaMarcus Aldridge of the San Antonio Spurs reacts after a no foul call against the Golden State Warriors

Something is rotten in the state of Texas. The San Antonio Spurs – who have long been the paragon of consistency and excellence in the NBA – have lost six of their last seven games while reportedly developing a massive rift with superstar Kawhi Leonard. Now the Spurs travel to Cleveland to take on a surging Cavaliers team Sunday.

SHARK BITES
  • The total has gone OVER in the Spurs last 6 games.
  • The Spurs are 14-2 SU in their last 16 games vs the Cavaliers.
  • The Cavaliers are 6-18-1 ATS in their last 25 games at home.

The most notable regression for the Spurs during their recent losing ways has come on the defensive end of the floor. Gregg Popovich’s team is allowing 109.3 points per game in their past seven contests, more than 10 points higher than their season average. And on top of Leonard not playing, Manu Ginobili is questionable after suffering a chest injury Friday.

On the other side of the court, the Cavaliers have become revitalized after basically turning over their entire roster during the trade deadline. The new additions to the Cavs lineup have really made an impact on the defensive end of the floor – something the team desperately needed – with Cleveland allowing 102.5 ppg in their last four. It also helps that LeBron James is averaging a triple-double during the month of February.
