San Antonio Spurs Betting

It was a tough game for the Spurs as they were looking for firepower to keep up with the Thunder. DeMar DeRozan had 30 points and LaMarcus Aldridge had a double-double with 22 points and 11 rebounds. From the bench, it was Lonnie Walker that came out with 16 points and seven rebounds. Other than that, they had nine points each from Rudy Gay and Delonte Murray. Brian Forbes had been slumping lately as he went flat doing 1-of-9 from the field in 29 minutes.

Milwaukee Bucks Betting

The Bucks have been on a roll winning their last four games and held off an upset by the Minnesota Timberwolves at home, 106-104. Giannis Antetokounmpo is his usual high numbers at 32 points, 17 rebounds and four assists. But in this game, Kris Middleton had it bad shooting just 5-of-18 from the field. The game could have swung at a better lead if he had a better game. Against the Spurs, he will definitely be the barometer on how the Bucks can treat this game. Still, with the depth of the Bucks, it is just hard to think that the game happened against Minnesota. They should look to bounce back strong against the Spurs at home.
