San Antonio Spurs Betting

It has been a tough schedule for the San Antonio Spurs as they faced the defending Los Angeles Lakers twice and had to contend with the Utah Jazz and New Orleans Pelicans as well in the past four games. Keldon Johnson’s break-out performances were the positives in the Spurs camp during this losing streak. He had 22 points, seven rebounds, two assists, and two steals. DeMar DeRozan had 19 points, five rebounds, and four assists while Jakob Poeltl and Lonnie Walker IV each had 11 points. The team still has no LaMarcus Aldridge playing for them and he left a big hole for other players to fill.

Los Angeles Clippers Betting

The Los Angeles Clippers have been doing great for the past four games as they only lost once and it was against the Utah Jazz. This team was able to bounce-back at the newly improved Phoenix Suns by five points, 112-107. Paul George is on a warpath as he demolished their opponents with 39 points, four assists, three rebounds, and seven three-pointers before fouling out. Kawhi Leonard had an off night shooting 4-of-21 while Nicholas Batum and Luke Kennard each had 14 points. Pat Beverly also had a good night doing seven points and nine assists. The Clippers have begun to turn heads after a dismal outing last year and they are on the right path of redemption.
