The Spurs will embark on the Rodeo road trip that sees them hit the road for 8 straight games.
Their first stop, Miami to take on the Heat on Tuesday night.
San Antonio will literally spend the rest of this month away from home, a place where they are currently undefeated.
The Spurs have been amazing and flawless at home, but their road play is almost as good. San Antonio is 15-8 SU away from the AT&T Center and are 14-9 ATS in those 23 games.
The Spurs have nearly an 11 point difference on the road as well as they put in 102.9 points per game while conceding just 92.
San Antonio has rattled off 18 wins in their last 20 games, but did struggle at home against the lowly Lakers last time out. The Lakers actually held the lead late, before the Spurs really turned it up a notch.
While he won’t be playing in this one, C Tim Duncan is close to returning, which makes this team even more ridiculously good. Duncan has missed 7 straight games with knee problems.
San Antonio has won the past 3 meetings head-to-head.
The Heat have won 6 of 8 as they have jumped up in the Eastern Conference standings, but one of those 2 losses came on Sunday afternoon.
The Clippers came into Miami and never let the Heat get over the hump in the 2nd half.
Hassan Whiteside continues to see his minutes monitored as he returned from an oblique injury. Whiteside has became a major force for the Heat inside, but over the last 3 games he’s came off the bench and seen a minus in minutes.
The bad news for him, he did suffer an ankle injury on Sunday and missed practice on Monday. On Saturday against Charlotte, Whiteside had 10 points, 10 rebounds and 10 blocked shots. That is the kind of thing he brings to the table, a little bit of everything.
F Luol Deng has played extremely well as he’s put in 15 points in 5 of his last 6 games.
