Brooklyn vs. San Antonio,
12/19/2019 20:30 EDT,
Score: 105 - 118
Point Spread: -2½/-105 San Antonio
At 10-16, the Spurs are off to their worst start under Gregg Popovich. Lately, though, the Spurs have shown life. They have won four of their last seven games, including defeating the Clippers and Rockets during this time frame.
San Antonio should be 5-2 during this span with two victories against the Rockets. However, the Spurs blew a 25-point lead against Houston on Monday when they last played.
The Spurs have had two days to deal with that loss and get psyched for this matchup. They draw Brooklyn coming off a 108-101 overtime road victory against New Orleans.
The Spurs hold a frontcourt edge on the Nets with LaMarcus Aldridge and their guards have picked up their play.
There also is a mental hurdle the Nets face here. San Antonio has owned the Nets at home beating them 16 times in a row! The Nets haven't won at San Antonio since 2002.
