San Antonio Spurs
Their last time out, the Spurs saw DeMar DeRozan score a team-high 23 points in a 123-121 loss to the Suns on Sunday.
They covered the spread as 2.5-point underdogs, and the teams scored 244 total points to top the 220.5-point over/under.
San Antonio has outperformed the spread so far this season with a record of 39-32-1. For the 20th time this season, the Spurs are at least a 3.5-point underdog, where they have a record of 9-10 against the spread.
Kawhi Leonard scored 20 points and the San Antonio Spurs routed the Memphis Grizzlies, 106-74, at the AT&T Center on Sunday night, taking a 1-0 lead in their first-round Western Conference playoff series.
The Grizzlies actually made things tough for the Spurs early, holding Gregg Popovich’s club to under 30-percent shooting in the first quarter.
Late in the second period, San Antonio only led 39-37, but the Spurs closed the half on a quick 9-0 run to take a 48-37 advantage into the break.
From that point on, it was all Spurs.
San Antonio promptly blew it open in the third quarter, outscoring Memphis 33-14.
That doesn’t mean the road for either team will be easy. Even the victor will face long odds in a winner-take-all battle with the loser of Wednesday’s highly anticipated Lakers-Warriors bout. But San Antonio’s decades-long playoff streak was snapped last season, and the Grizzlies are still only midway through a rebuild. At this stage, both teams have everything to gain and little to lose, so let’s dive into what our experts expect from the Spurs and Grizzlies.
As a team, San Antonio shot 51.9 percent and went 10-of-23 from three-point range.
Vince Carted led Memphis with 16 points.
Lance Stephenson was the only other Grizzly in double figures with 14.
Memphis shot 39.2 percent overall.
Game 2 is Tuesday night at the AT&T Center at 9:30 p.m. ET.
It won’t draw quite as much attention as the Western Conference’s glitzier No. 7 vs. No. 8 matchup, but the Memphis Grizzlies and San Antonio Spurs offer a very different sort of appeal as a play-in matchup. This game is a glimpse into the conference’s future. Memphis centerpieces Ja Morant and Jaren Jackson Jr. have yet to reach the playoffs, and while the Spurs boast a slightly more balanced group in terms of age, many of their core pieces are postseason neophytes as well.
