San Antonio Spurs Betting
The San Antonio Spurs are now holding a 26-35 record and they have lost four of their last ten games. This team has been struggling to find consistency from their players and they are seeking to try different things already. In their last win, Tim Duncan held the head coaching position for Greg Popovich and the Basketball Hall of Famer is undefeated as the team’s head coach. They failed to capitalize on that as they lost in their next game against the Brooklyn Nets. DeMar DeRozan continues to carry this team on his back as he averages 22.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.4 assists per game. The Spurs continue to miss LaMarcus Aldridge as the team faces getting eliminated in the playoffs for the first time in the Greg Popovich era.
