The Spurs lost their first home game of the season recently, in a superb matchup against the Golden State Warriors Sunday night. They’ve had an amazing season so far and now have a franchise best 65 wins, despite losing 3 in a row. Their head coach, Gregg Popovich doesn’t care about that and is simply more concerned about having his veterans in good form for the playoffs which start next week. This really looks like a great game on paper but will most likely not really see much superstars playing in this meaningless game. In any case, the Spurs should be a favorite in this game depending on the status of their players.
Oklahoma City come into this game having lost 3 of their last 5 games, with 2 wins coming against extremely weak opponents such as the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers. The problem is that some of those losses need to be taken in consideration though, as the Thunder has been resting players with their comfortable position in the 3rd spot of the Western Conference. Their offense is still and will always be on point though, as they continue to rank 2nd in scoring, just behind Stephen Curry’s Golden State Warriors. It’s still unclear if the coach will play his top players here or will rest them as this game is simply meaningless game for both teams in terms of playoffs positioning.
