On Friday, March 19th, an Inter-Conference matchup is taking place between the San Antonio Spurs (21-16) and the Cleveland Cavaliers (15-25). The teams have yet to meet this season.
San Antonio is currently the 7th seed in the stacked Western Conference meanwhile Cleveland is struggling in the 12 spot amidst the weak Eastern Conference. Both teams just played Wednesday night and won their games by a 7 point margin.
San Antonio Spurs
Where San Antonio is lacking in a superstar presence they make up for in great team ball. The team is 21-16 but has made the most of their chances by winning 9 of 11 games over the inferior Eastern conference opponents.
The Spurs have won 3 of their last 4 games including a 106-99 victory on Wednesday in Chicago. 6 of the 9 players that saw minutes in the game scored in double figures which seems to be a common occurrence in a Popovich offense. Jakob Poeltl scored a team high 20 points and brought down a monster 16 rebounds for a bigtime double double performance.
DeMar DeRozan has a had an underrated season thus far and was arguably an all-star snub. He is averaging a team high 20.3 points and 7.3 assists as well as 4.7 rebounds. Dejounte Murray continues to ascend and has been the second best player on the team with 15.6 points, 7 rebounds, and 5.2 assists.
Cleveland was playing good ball at the start of the year as they sat at 9-9 and were in the midst of a weak Eastern Conference. They were dealt a harsh sense of reality though as they lost 12 of their next 13 games to find themselves all the way at the bottom once again.
The Cavaliers have been inconsistent all year with their winning and losing streaks. After losing 12 of 13 Cleveland rolled off 4 straight wins before consequently dropping the next 4 games, 3 of which coming by double figures.
The Cavs last played on Wednesday night at home and knocked off the underwhelming Celtics 117-110. Cleveland came out hot and jumped out to a 17 point halftime lead and held on to it the rest of the way out. The primary production was carried at by the young dynamic “Sexland” duo Collin Sexton and Darius Garland. The pair recorded 54 points, 12 assists, and 11 rebounds.
Collin Sexton has been the best player all year for Cleveland and is averaging 23.7 points (team best) with 4.3 assists. Andre Drummond has had a dominant year interiorly with 17.5 points and a league leading 13.5 rebounds per game but has been sat out for several games now as the team looks to trade him before the March 25th trade deadline.
NBA Betting Trends:

Free San Antonio Spurs vs Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Prediction
Neither team is elite comparably to the rest of the league but there is still a large discrepancy. San Antonio plays more consistently and has the advantage in coaching with hall of famer Gregg Popovich. The Spurs have won 9 of 11 this year against Eastern Conference teams and I expect that trend to continue as they won’t let a capable win slip away.
