The San Antonio Spurs have probably been the most underachieving team in the league this season, but they didn't move any of their key pieces at the trade deadline, which means they're committed to making a push for the playoffs. Well, the Spurs need this game if they're going to make that a reality. The Sacramento Kings have had a good week, but they're not a good team overall and they're on the end of a back to back. This is a must win game for the Spurs if the postseason is going to happen. I'll lay the bucket.
