San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs march into this evening’s contest flashing a 4-2 record that ranks San Antonio 5th in the Western Conference and 3rd in the Southwest division. Right now the conference is being led by the 5-1 Memphis Grizzlies – who also happen to be leading the division. Coming off a year that saw the Spurs make it all the way to the Conference Finals, it’s safe to say that San Antonio has plenty of expectations to live up to this season. The 2-game online NBA betting losing streak the team is currently on is not one of them.
To help snap their current losing streak, the Spurs will turn to leading point’s scorer LaMarcus Aldridge. Aldridge currently leads the franchise in points as he puts up 25.7 each night. The 11-year veteran is also leading the team in rebounds, snatching up 9 each evening. Rudy Gay is No. 2 in points scored per game with his average of 21.0. Dejounte Murray, guard, leads the team in assists with his 3.7 average.
Like the Spurs, the Celtics also come into this contest sporting a 4-2 record. However, that 4-2 record is good enough to rank Boston 2nd in the Eastern Conference and 1st in the Atlantic Division standings. Boston had a rough start to the season, losing Gordon Hayward to a devastating injury in their first game of the season. After the loss of an integral starter, Boston would go on to lose the first two games of the season. The team has bounced back since however, winning their last 4 consecutively, leading basketball betting sites to peg the Celts the favorite ahead of this evening’s action.
To help keep the win streak alive, the Celtics will turn to none other than their offseason acquisition, Kyrie Irving. Irving is the team’s top scorer with an average of 21.3 put up each game. Irvin is also No. 1 in assists with a 5.7 average and his 2.3 steals per game average leads Boston as well. Al Horford takes the cake in assists with his astounding 8.8 mean.
