Tim Duncan takes a bow after 19 season in NBA

Tim Duncan nearly spent the last two decades acting like the quiet force of the San Antonio Spurs. He wore the team’s on his shoulders and led them to an unmatched summit in the american sports modern era. With Duncan as focal point, the Spurs won five NBA championship, while also participating in the playoffs for all of his 19 seasons.

Fantasy Basketball NBA Playoffs

Memphis Grizzlies vs San Antonio Spurs

The Memphis Grizzlies will travel to Texas to battle the San Antonio Spurs in the 1st game of the their Western Conference series at the tough AT&T Center, a venue where the Spurs only lost once this season to the Warriors.

Fantasy Basketball NBA Playoffs

San Antonio pretty much swept the season series and it will be very tough to think they can’t sweep this playoff series as well. On top of that, they held the Grizzlies to 87 pts or less in 3 of those 4 games. On Paper, this is the most loopsided series and the Spurs are extremely high favorites to win all games, the largest favorite in the opening.
The Spurs come into this matchup however having lost 3 of their last 5 games. This is the last concern of their head coach Gregg Popvich who’s simply a bit more worried about the health of his team. Most of their losses this end of season were due to resting players. What’s tremendous about this Spurs team is their form at home. They tied the NBA record for home wins going 40-1 this campaign. Their defense is a lot to blame for their success as they rank 1st in in pts allowed.
There’s a lot to admire about this Grizzlies team but unfortunately, not much to hope for. They start the series going against the best team at home and have battled with injuries of their top players such as Marc Gasol, Mike Conley, Mario Chalmers and Zach Randolph. They luckily snuck in the playoffs and in fact, by only winning one of their last 11 games. Zach Randolph is the real catalyst of their team and cannot do it himself. Their offense has held them back lately as they rank in the bottom 6 in both scoring and assists per game.

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.

NBA Fantasy Basketball Prediction

Golden State Warriors vs San Antonio Spurs

The record breaking Golden State Warriors will travel to San Antonio with a unique opportunity to make history as they face in their arch rivals, San Antonio Spurs in a monumental matchup on Sunday.

NBA Fantasy Basketball Prediction

Even though the Warriors have an incredible record…well, potentially on pace to become the best record ever by any NBA Basketball in history, it’s unfortunate to say that they’re regressing and that this may be the worst timing possible for it. Despite having one 4 of their last 6 games, two of those wins were in overtime against teams that hugely lack competition. They’re having a lot of trouble to end games and the 4th quarter slides are becoming more frequent, win or lose. With that being said, Golden State still took care of San Antonio earlier this week in a 112-101 win. But the real trouble is traveling to San Antonio as they’ve lost so far an amazing 33 straight regular season games in Texas against the Spurs. Mostly, the Spurs just haven’t loss this season at all at home. This is potentially an NBA playoffs game 7 type of energy that they will need to beat the Spurs. The Warriors are a rare underdog heading into the biggest obstacle on their 73 win record path.

 

San Antonio heads into this game losing 2 games in a row as there’s not much for them to play for anymore this regular season. The Spurs are sitting comfortably in the 2nd spot of the Western Conference and just can’t move up or down at this point. However, one thing does matter and the fact they can become the first team in NBA history to maintain a perfect record for the entire season. One thing does matter though, as the Spurs can become the first team in NBA history to maintain a perfect home record for the entire season. This would be quite an accomplishment and this franchise just does not stop succeeding for almost 2 decades. The Spurs are a favorite in this game which should be quite interesting.

NBA Basketball Fantasy Draft

San Antonio Spurs vs Denver Nuggets

Gregg Popovich’s hot San Antonio Spurs will be heading Colorado to face the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center Friday night after their tough game against arch rivals Golden State Warriors last night. This NBA basketball fantasy draft preview is brought you by FanPicks.com. Come PLAY in our Daily Fantasy Basketball contests at FanPicks and get a free chance to win $1 Million dollars!

NBA Basketball Fantasy Draft

The Nuggets come into this game having lost 5 of their last 6 games. They’re definitely hoping to end this long frustrating season as soon as possible. They’re a young team with some potential to look forward too and possibly one of the best core in the NBA. They’re heading into this game with no possible way to get in the playoffs and will most likely play everyone on their roster. Their opponents, the second biggest powerhouse in the NBA will most likely rest all their top players, therefore, they could potentially snatch up a win with some hard work. San Antonio remains a favorite regardless in this game regardless of the circumstances.

 

San Antonio has only lost 5 games since the end of January. Their only losses have came against elite playoff teams and their solid defense has been nothing less than remarkable all year. Their consistent results just shows everyone how good this team is and they will most likely continue to play this low key fantastic way. Although, their most recent loss last night was pretty emphasized as a loss of their pursuit for the top seed in the Western Conference and moreover, the number one overall, their head coach Gregg Popovich focuses strictly on his players fitness for the important post season right around the corner. It will be surprising if their top players get even over 20 minutes of play in this game.

Fantasy NBA Basketball Lineup

San Antonio Spurs vs Golden State Warriors

Gregg Popovich’s hot San Antonio Spurs will be heading to Oakland tonight where they will face their arch Western Conference rivals, Golden State warriors. If the Warriors want to beat the Bulls 72 win season, they will need to win their last 4 games in a row starting tonight. This Fantasy NBA basketball lineup is brought you by FanPicks.com.

Fantasy NBA Basketball Lineup

So this is it…. the march to 73 wins really starts here for the Warriors as they’re going into the questionably their toughest stretch of the season. A lot of people marked this game on their calendar as the day when the Warriors would lose their first home game of the season. Well, a lot of people were wrong. Ironically, not sure if it’s the pressure but Golden State has lost 2 of their last 3 home games. Many people predicted them blowing out the 72 wins record since no one expected losses against the Boston Celtics and furthermore, a struggling Minnesota Timberwolves squad. It’s now that they’re finally looking like humans. Unfortunately for them, this is the worst time of the year to be slipping in some kind of slump. With the playoffs right around the corner, all the squads are building up the blueprints on how to beat the Warriors. They will most likely come out flying this game but the issue is down the stretch. Will they survive the 4th quarter and tenacity of the San Antonio Spurs as they did back in January when they technically blew them out at home or they will struggle in the last 4 minutes of the game like they did against the T-Wolves. Regardless, this matchup will be exciting to watch.

 

The Spurs are on another level lately and come into this game having won 4 straight games. On top of that, if they actually beat the Warriors twice in their next 5 games remaining, they have a crack at the top seed in the Western Conference. A lot of speculation from experts believing that Gregg Popovich doesn’t care about beating records and getting the number one seed. It’s quite possible that he rests his top players like he has lately on the road. It would be a huge disappointment to NBA fans as well as Fantasy Basketball fans, so definitely avoid picking out the top Spurs players on your lineup but Ginobili should be hot tonight with a lot of responsibility.  So far this year, these teams have split the first 2 games when facing one another but with the home team winning each game.

San Antonio Spurs vs Utah Jazz

NBA Basketball Fantasy Projections

The Utah Jazz have been thriving off their defense as well. The surprising fact is that the Jazz actually rank 2nd in the NBA just behind San Antonio. Unfortunately though, they’re barely in the playoffs sitting in eighth in the Western Conference, just one game in front of the Houston Rockets. The Jazz have won 4 of their last 5 heading into this game and clearly have some motivation to obtain their final playoff berth. Utah is also rocking solid at home and made it their fortress with a good 24-14 home record into this game.

 

San Antonio head into this matchup having won 5 of their last 6 games. What’s really encouraging for them is the way LaMarcus Aldridge has been playing. He is really starting to find his Portland form lately. With this already dominant team, its hard and scary to imagine the damage they can make in the post season. Their key to success this year has been their defense as they ranked 1st in pts allowed since the opening month of the year.

Basketball Fantasy preview

The San Antonio are still standing tall and remain undefeated at home with a 38-0 record. They come into this game having dropped the visiting New Orleans Pelicans Wednesday. They had a lot of contribution coming from the bench with 20 pts from Manu Ginobili. Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green both finished the game with 16 pts, with Leonard adding 6 rebounds and Green going 4 of 6 from 3 point range. Green has only missed 2 games for San Antonio this season, and averages 7.4 pts with 3.9 boards per game. Big man LaMarcus Aldridge added 11 pts and 6 boards as they look destined to finish their season with the number 2 seed in the Western Conference. The Spurs  will still face first place Golden State Warriors twice in their remaining seven games.

 

The Raptors have won 2 straight games and are having a historical success this season. Their latest win came against the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night. With 27 points coming from their star DeMar DeRozan, he led the Raps in scoring, shooting 8 of 17 from the field. Kyle Lowry added 22 points and Jonas Valanciunas had a double-double with 11 pts and 14 boards. Valanciunas leads the team in boards over 54 games averaging 9.2 per game. The Raptors will enter the playoffs as the 2nd seed in the Eastern Conference since most likely the Cavaliers will take the 1st seed.

Fantasy NBA Basketball preview
The Spurs are coming into this game after a resounding home win against the Miami Heat two days ago, 112-88. Unfortunately for them, Kawhi Leonard had to leave in the second half with an injury after an incredible performance of 32 pts, 8 boards, a steal and a block. He will not be playing tonight and could potentially miss a few games since the Spurs rather rest him before playoffs.

The Spurs were shooting 51.9% from the field and 57.1% from beyond the arc.
San Antonio are just 4 games behind top seed and defending champions Golden State Warriors in the Conference lead and are still perfect at home with a 36-0 records, dropping only one game in their last 8.
Memphis are coming into this game after a loss to the struggling Los Angeles Lakers 107-100. The Grizzlies were led by Tony Allen’s 27 pts, 5 assists, 4 boards and a steal effort. Zach Randolph added a monstrous 16 pts, 6 boards, 5 assists, 3 steals and a block.

The Grizzlies, are currently ranked 2nd in the Western Conference’s Southwest Division. They sit in 5th in the Conference but should watch out as they’ve dropped 5 of their last 7 contests.

The Spurs have won the first 2 contests this season against Memphis.

Golden State Warriors vs San Antonio Spurs

With only 14 games left in the regular season, the top 2 teams in NBA will face off tonight when defending champions Golden State Warriors travel to the AT&T Center to face the San Antonio Spurs.

NBA Primetime Fantasy preview

The Spurs come into this game having dropped only 1 game in their last 14 and most of all carrying a 43 home game winning streak. This game will be more than fascinating and an important factor is that the Warriors last regular season win in San Antonio dates back to February 14th 1997.

The Spurs are 20-3 since their blowout loss to the Warriors and with their playoff berth already safe and secured, Gregg Popovich is trying to rest some of his players to ensure everyone is ready for the postseason. This is definitely their roughest stretch for any teams performing at this level. The Spurs, the league’s best defense will try to stop the best offensive unit in the NBA and push their home record.

 

Golden State Warriors have been rising and shining the past 18 months. They come into this game having won 7 straight games as well as 14 of their last 15. This game will be by far the toughest test of their season despite their 30 point blowout of San Antonio back in January. For only the fourth time this season, they’re seen as an underdog here, as they’ve lost 32 straight games in San Antonio. Yes, 32 but this time, the Splash Brothers dynamic duo will be in full force as they hit 16 3-pointers last night and combined for 70 points in their win against the Mavericks in Dallas.

 

Statistically speaking, this will be the best regular-season matchup of all time in NBA history with a combination between opponents of 119 wins and only 16 losses.

Portland Trail Blazers vs San Antonio Spurs

Fantasy NBA Preview

Gregg Popovich’s San Antonio Spurs, en route to capture the league’s second-longest home winning streak will be hosting The Portland Trail Blazers at AT&T Center on Thursday night. This Fantasy NBA Preview is brought you by Fanpicks.com. Come sign up and PLAY some Fantasy Basketball at FanPicks to get a free chance to win $1 Million dollars!

Fantasy NBA Preview

San Antonio are on a 42 home game winning streak, 3 games shy of the NBA record prior to Golden State eclipsing the 90’s Bulls record. In fact, they’re clearly being overlooked this year due to the ridiculous records being pulled by the Warriors and the Spurs are having a wonderful season, one of the best in recent times. Not only they’re ranking first in points allowed with their solid defensive play, but are also on pace to have the best all time point differential in the NBA’s history. The whole team is playing extremely well including Kawhi Leonard who has really stepped us his already high level game but also LaMarcus Aldrige. Aldrige who led the Trail Blazers in scoring the last 5 seasons signed surprisingly to the Spurs in the summer and integrated his new team quite well.

 

The Trail Blazers, despite being a hot team the past 2 months are on an ugly stride right now, having dropped 5 of their last 7 games and in terrible fashion. Their defense is non-existent allowing over 109 pts in 6 of those 7 last games. Their offense is still solid led by Damian Lillard and ranking 8th in the league for points scored. With the playoff around the corner, they will need to really pace themselves and focus further defensively to secure their berth. The Spurs are far favourites in this contest.

Los Angeles Lakers vs San Antonio Spurs Fantasy Basketball News – 02-06-16

The San Antonio Spurs (42-8) will be hosting their struggling Western Conference old rivals at the AT&T Center, the Los Angeles Lakers (11-41). FanPicks has this game on tap for tonight’s DFS action. Come play Fantasy Basketball at fanpicks.com.

Projected Lineup

LAL vs SAS
The Lakers after losing 9 straight games bounced back recently with a two game winning streak, however against weaker opponents. Kobe Bryant has been playing incredibly well, especially the past 3 games around 30 pts a game with 8 boards. Kobe is really looking like an All-Star making everyone in L.A excited. The Lakers are unfortunately still ranked in the bottom 4 in the NBA when it comes to pts allowed per game and pts scored.
The Spurs come into this game winning their past 3 matchups by an average of 13 pts difference. Other than their matchup against defending champions, Golden State Warriors, the Spurs have shown no signs of weaknesses. Ranking amongst the top 5 in the NBA for pts scored, allowed, bench pts and assists in the league. San Antonio is obviously a big favourite in this matchup.
