The Golden State Warriors and the San Antonio Spurs do battle once again at the AT&T Center on Tuesday night.
The Golden State Warriors have been in decent form as they've split their last 10 games, but they will be hoping to avoid a third straight defeat after last night's 105-100 loss to the Spurs. Stephen Curry drained six 3-pointers on his way to 32 points and six assists on 10 of 17 shooting, Kelly Oubre Jr. added 24 points on nine of 16 shooting while Andrew Wiggins chipped in with 11 points. As a team, the Warriors shot 44 percent from the field and 13 of 37 from the 3-point line as they rallied back from a 10-point deficit, but were always trailing down the stretch as Draymond Green missed two crucial free throws and the potential game-tying 3-pointer to finish with just seven points on three of 11 shooting.
Meanwhile, the San Antonio Spurs have been on a nice run lately as they've won six of their past eight games and they will be gunning for a fourth straight win after last night's narrow win over the Warriors. Dejounte Murray led the team with 27 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and eight steals, DeMar DeRozan added 21 points with 10 assists while Jakob Poeltl chipped in with 14 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks. As a team, the Spurs shot just 40 percent from the field and 11 of 31 from the 3-point line, but they were deadly accurate when it mattered the most as Murray drained a clutch 3-pointer with just 12.6 seconds left, while DeMar DeRozan made four free-throws in the final 8.7 seconds.
Looking at the betting trends, the Warriors are 8-20-1 ATS in their last 29 games playing on zero days' rest, 1-4 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall. The Spurs are 9-25 ATS in their last 34 games as a home favorite and 6-16 ATS in their last 22 games as a favorite,
Head to head, the under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings in San Antonio.
The Warriors will be kicking themselves with last night's loss as they beat the Spurs in most categories across the board except they didn't take care of the ball as they committed 20 turnovers to the Spurs' 11 which was the difference in a close contest. I think we're going to see another close one here, but this time I'm going with the Warriors to respond and come away with the win here.
