The San Antonio Spurs travel to the Barclays Center to take on the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday afternoon.

The San Antonio Spurs have been in a real funk lately as they’ve lost five of their past six games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back after getting rolled by the 76ers in a 119-100 road loss on Friday. Dejounte Murray led the team with 27 points and nine assists, Jakob Poeltl added 17 points while Lonnie Walker chipped in with 13 points off the bench, but no other player finished in double figures. As a team, the Spurs shot just 41 percent from the field and nine of 30 from the 3-point line, but they were always fighting an uphill battle after getting blown out in the first quarter by 39-19. Bryn Forbes had a night to forget as he scored just seven points on three of 14 shooting.

Meanwhile, the Brooklyn Nets have been in a rut as well as they’ve lost four of their past five games and they will be hoping to bounce back from their 121-109 home loss to the Bucks on Friday. Kevin Durant led the team with 29 points, nine rebounds and seven assists, James Harden added 16 points with nine rebounds and seven assists while Nicolas Claxton chipped in with 14 points. As a team, the Nets shot 45 percent from the field and just six of 27 from the 3-point line, but the problems were on the defensive end as they trailed by 11 points at halftime, before getting blown out in the third quarter where the Bucks poured in 38 points to put the game to bed early. Patty Mills endured one of the worst games this season as he scored just three points on one of eight shooting.

Looking at the betting trends, the Spurs are 1-4 ATS in their last five road games, 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games against a team with a winning record and 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall. The Nets are 1-5 ATS in their last six games against a team below .400, 5-16 ATS in their last 21 home games and 0-5 ATS in their last five games overall.

Head to head, the over is 4-0 in the last four meetings overall, the Spurs are 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings overall and the Spurs are 15-6 ATS in the last 21 meetings in Brooklyn.

The Spurs will again be shorthanded as they’re missing a bunch of players including Thaddeus Young, Keldon Johnson and Derrick White, while the Nets will be without Kyrie Irving and maybe LaMarcus Aldridge who is listed as day to day. The Nets have opened as big favorites at home which isn’t a surprise, but they’ve lost four of their past five games. The Spurs are 15-6 ATS in the last 21 meetings in Brooklyn and I think they should be good enough to keep this one close to the end.
