We are all waiting for that first game between the Spurs and Warriors but until then this one is pretty good.
The Warriors have the best record in the league and these are the next best teams behind them.
Cleveland has won eight in a row, most recent at Dallas in overtime to start the week. They are on a road trip and will be completing the dreaded Texas triangle. Next up the Spurs.
Now that this team is whole they are certainly looking like a return to the Finals is inevitable. Maybe this is the team they would face.
Now that Kyrie Irving is back things get a little easier for LeBron on the scoring front. Irving is pretty reliable for 20 points a game.
Having the both of them on the floor should make it even easier for a spot up shooter like Kevin Love but I think he is still struggling with how to fit in. Though it is definitely better than last year.
I don’t deny this team is good but they are not exactly burning it up for bettors this season, 15-20 ATS.
San Antonio Spurs
San Antonio has the second best record in the league and even the Cavs are not all that close. They have won nine in a row so something has to give in this one.
The Spurs are always solid bit this season they are the top defensive team in the league. I would have thought adding a player like Lamarcus Aldridge would have a different effect.
His numbers may not look all that impressive but he is averaging less than 30 minutes per game and putting up 16/9. Not many in the league are that efficient.
Something had to give though as Tim Duncan is enjoying career lows. Without a word of complaint though as he chases down another ring. You gotta love that.
The same can be said for Tony Parker who is barely playing half a game. There is no team that sacrifices production like this group.
Somebody has gathered it all up though and that is Kawhi Leonard.
San Antonio is a monster spread team at 28-12 but they worry me the way they rest guys. Its like they only care about winning.
