The Thunder have been struggling more than usually since the All-Star break but seem to be back on their winning ways the past two weeks, after their loss to the Spurs on the 12th of March, 93-85. In fact, they’re currently on a 6 game winning streak and averaging nearly an impressive 120 pts per game and allowing the teams to around 100 pts a game. The defense is actually very impressive and it may be a game changer if they can keep up during playoffs. Their offense is obviously always consistent led by dynamic duo of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant, but their defense can get them to wherever they want to be. With numerous players resting for the Spurs this weekend, the Thunder should be favourite to win this game.
The Spurs are currently rolling with one of the best squads in and clearly having one of the best seasons in franchise history. In fact, during the Tim Duncan era, they have not won less than 50 games, showing the amazing consistency of this proud franchise. With that being said, this game could definitely be one of their few losses of the season. Their head coach, Gregg Popovich decided to rest many of his key players this weekend, therefore are expected to be without Tim Duncan, Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili. Look out for a few bench players to put up some nice Fantasy points today like Danny Green or David West for the Spurs.
