Spurs Facing Online NBA Betting Elimination
Posted by: Anthony Yaylor
This weekend’s online NBA betting results were fairly straightforward. Friday’s action resulted in a Cleveland Game 2 130-86 victory over their Eastern Conference Finals opponent, the Boston Celtics. That win marked the second time in a row that the Cavaliers were able to hand down a massive beating to the Celtics, leading the majority of players who bet on NBA playoffs to believe that the Cavs had the Conference Finals all but won. After all, Cleveland had won Game 1 by double-digits, and winning Game 2 by 44-points certainly made it seem like the Cavs had this in the bag. However, in Game 3, Boston quickly showed that it’s too early to rule them out.

Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals, held this past Sunday, resulted in a 108-111 Celtics victory. With that win, Boston proved that there’s a reason they were the best team in the East during the regular season, and that they can contend with Cleveland. In fact, that loss marked the Cavs first of the playoffs. On the other hand, the Warriors have yet to concede a loss. Will the Spurs hand them their first this online NBA betting Monday night?

Golden State Warriors
This past Saturday, the Warriors faced the Spurs in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals. Golden State had won the first two games of the series, with Game 2’s results being a bit of a blowout. The Spurs desperately needed a win in Game 3 but were unable to get it done as Golden State picked up the W 120-108. Now Golden State is on the verge of advancing past the Spurs. However, it wouldn’t be the first time that the Warriors have lost a 3-0 advantage in the playoffs. Nevertheless, the fact that the Warriors are undefeated thus far in the playoffs makes it seem like a Golden State victory in Game 4 is an online NBA betting guarantee.
Kevin Durant led the Warriors in points in Game 3. Durant was good for 33 points, 4 assists, and 10 rebounds. Second in points for Golden State that night was Stephen Curry who put up 21 points, 3 assists, and 5 rebounds.
San Antonio Spurs
In Game 3’s loss against the Warriors, San Antonio was led in points by Manu Ginobili. Ginobili is not a starter and having someone come off the bench and lead your team in points is never conducive to a win. Ginobili finished the night with a 21 point, 1 rebound, 2 assist performance. LaMarcus Aldridge was San Antonio’s most successful starter. Aldridge finished the night with 18 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 blocks.
Things went south for the Spurs in Game 1 when they lost Kawhi Leonard to an injury. San Antonio was winning that first contest up until that point. With Leonard out of the lineup since then, Golden State has steamrolled the Spurs. With Leonard likely missing Game 4 as well, the Spurs will likely have their season ended Monday night.
