Stephen Nover Free Friday NBA Play
Sacramento vs. San Antonio,
12/06/2019 20:30 EDT,
Score: 104 - 105
Point Spread: -4½/-101 San Antonio
It has taken all season, but the buy sign is finally on the Spurs. Gregg Popovich has his youngest team ever. It's taken the Spurs a quarter of the season to get going, but they have defeated both the Clippers and Rockets in two of their last three games. Those are two of the top six teams in the NBA.
Sacramento has been overachieving. But the Kings could be hitting a rough patch as they continue to miss their second-leading scorer, De'Aaron Fox, and top big man Marvin Bagley III. They also might be without Bogdan Bogdanovic, their top reserve.
The Kings rank 26th in scoring. San Antonio outscores Sacramento by nearly eight points a game.
The spot lays out well, too, for San Antonio. The Spurs have been idle since Tuesday. Their next game isn't for six more days. Popovich should have the Spurs rested, primed and prepared for an all-out effort. It's an added bonus if LaMarcus Aldridge is able to play, but I still like San Antonio if he can't. The Spurs catch the Kings in action for a third time in five days.
The Spurs also are in a rare triple-revenge spot as the Kings swept all three games last season.
