The San Antonio Spurs’ current dynasty began with a dynamic duo of big men known as the Twin Towers – Tim Duncan and David Robinson. Robinson may not be around any longer, but Duncan’s found a new twin in prized free agent acquisition LaMarcus Aldridge.
With Aldridge around, the Spurs have gone back to dominating opponents on the inside.
That will be the part of the Spurs’ game that will give the Milwaukee Bucks fits Monday evening when the Spurs visit the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Wisconsin for an inter-conference tilt.
San Antonio Spurs:
While the Spurs remain a dominant team under the basket, they still have the ability to connect from deep with the best of them. Danny Green hit on 26.8 percent of his deep shots in the month of December, but hit on 6 of 8 against the Houston Rockets in a game in which the Spurs shot 13 of 24 from deep.
Aldridge scored 24 in that contest, giving him back-to-back 20-point games for the first time as a Spur. Meanwhile, Duncan didn’t score a point for the first time in his 19-year career.
However, he had 16 points when the Spurs host the Bucks on Dec. 2.
The Bucks won’t be in awe of the Spurs’ prowess in the paint. Milwaukee’s 48.3 points per game in the paint lead the league, but in that Dec. 2 meeting with the Spurs, the Bucks were outscored 48-34 in the paint and lost the game 95-70.
In that first meeting, only Khris Middleton and Greg Monroe scored more than seven points for the Bucks. The team enters this one coming off back-to-back road wins, most recently a 95-85 win at the Minnesota Timberwolves.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Spurs are 4-1 ATS in their last five games against Eastern Conference opponents.
- The Spurs are 7-2 ATS in their last nine games played on a Monday.
- The Bucks are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games against Southwest Division opponents.
- The Bucks are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following a win.
- The Spurs are 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings between these teams.
Free NBA Prediction:
The Spurs are one of the few teams in basketball that can keep up with the Bucks in the paint, and by taking away their biggest strength, San Antonio can really expose Milwaukee in the way they did in the first meeting between these teams.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Spurs -9
The Spurs already have a 25-point win over the Bucks under their belts this season, and San Antonio continues to play incredible basketball. Milwaukee has already pulled off a little magic in its own building a couple of times this season, but there may not be any magic left.
