Monday NBA kicks off the week with a potential NBA Finals matchup. The Cleveland Cavaliers travel west to take on the San Antonio Spurs in a showdown between two of the top three teams in the Association.
*All statistics, standings, records, rankings and trends are current as of this writing at 7:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 26, 2017.
The Cavaliers enter this contest scoring 110.5 points per game. That number is good enough for fourth in the NBA.
Defensively, this team is giving up 106.9 points per night. That number is good enough for 22nd in the league.
Against San Antonio, it’s going to be crucial that the Cavs take care of the ball. Turning the basketball over and giving the Spurs easy transition opportunities is a recipe for disaster.
This Cavs squad will likely give Kawhi Leonard — arguably the game’s best two-way player — a few different looks. LeBron will be the primary defender assigned to San Antonio’s superstar small forward, but using exclusively him will wear down the Cavs’ best playmaker on offense.
Expect a healthy mix of James, Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith when it comes to containing the Spurs’ best player.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs enter this contest scoring 106.3 points per game. That number is good enough for 12th in the NBA.
Defensively, this team is giving up 98.4 points per night. That number is good enough for second in the league behind only the defensive-minded Utah Jazz.
Choosing who Leonard will guard is going to be tough. Do you set him on LeBron the whole game? Do you have him switch onto Kyrie Irving to disrupt the star point guard’s ability to score off the dribble (not to mentioned penetrate and kick out to spot-up shooter?)
The Spurs don’t care about regular-season wins (or even playoff placement), but a win over Cleveland would do a lot for the confidence of the fans in San Antonio.

Free Cleveland Cavaliers vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Prediction:
Whether or not you believe the Golden State Warriors are the favorites to come out of the West, there’s no denying that Cavs-Spurs is a potential NBA Finals preview.
The Cavaliers are the unquestioned best team out of the Eastern Conference, and the Spurs are having an historic season by many measures.
As much fun as these two teams would be to watch face off in June, it’s important to keep an eye out on the injury report ahead of this one. These two teams have become notorious for not only sitting stars, but sitting them in big games.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: San Antonio ATS
Assuming all important pieces participate, we like the Spurs by a decent margin. But that could change based on who — if anyone — receives DNP-CDs on Monday.
