Tuesday, December 7th finds the New York Knicks visiting the San Antonio Spurs for the first meeting between these clubs who’ll play twice this season.
Both clubs played on Saturday with the Knicks losing 99-113 to the Nuggets while the Spurs pulled off perhaps the biggest upset to this point in the season defeating the Warriors 112-107 at the Chase Center.
Last season the clubs played twice with each team winning on their home court. The Spurs hold the all-time record with 56 wins in 97 matches versus the Knicks.
New York Knicks
Milwaukee didn’t have Middleton or Holiday, Philly was missing Embiid and Harris while LeBron James was out for the Lakers. Only the Hawks had most of their core and they were missing Cam Reddish and DeAndre Hunter.
On Saturday four of the five starters registered double-figures with Julius Randle the high scorer with 24 points plus eight assists, and seven rebounds. Evan Fournier (15), RJ Barrett (13), Alec Burks (11), and Derrick Rose (11) were the other double-figure contributors.
San Antonio Spurs
With the win in San Francisco, the Spurs extended their current winning streak to four games in a row. In contrast to the Knicks all four matches were favored to be won by their opponents including the Celtics, Wizards, Blazers, and Dubs.
San Antonio is averaging 109.5 points during the streak while holding their opponents to 94.2 points with only the Warriors scoring over 100 points (107).
In the win Saturday, the Spurs had to hold off a charging Warriors squad who held them to 13 points (versus 19) in the final frame but perhaps were still reveling in their victory over the Suns.
Dejounte Murray is making a case for the Most Improved Player lately continued his hot streak with a double-double of 23 points and 12 rebounds plus seven assists, and two steals.
Derrick White was the top scorer with 25 points while Lonnie Walker IV scored 21 off the bench. Keldon Johnson (15) and Doug McDermott (13) were the other double-digit scorers.
The game was won on the tiniest of margins with the Spurs winning fast break scoring 19 to 11 and points in the paint 56 to 50. While this might not be a typical Gregg Popovich team (they score the fewest 3-pointers) there are some similarities as they rank second in assists.
Devin Vassell (quad) and Keita Bates-Diop (ankle) are questionable for Monday.
NBA Betting Trends:
- The Spurs are 7-3 in the last 10 head to head
- The Spurs are 6-4 ATS in their last 10 meetings
- Over Under is 5-5 in the teams last 10 head to head matchups
Free New York Knicks vs. San Antonio Spurs NBA Prediction:
An intriguing dilemma regarding which team will perform ATS as the Knicks play better on the road covering the spread 60% of the time while the Spurs also cover the spread 60% of the time at the AT&T Center.
Perhaps a safer bet is the over/under where the Spurs are 7-1-2 at home and the Knicks are 3-7 on the road. Also of note, this is only the second back-to-back set the Spurs have played this season.
I’m favoring the Spurs to keep both the Knicks losing streak and their own winning streak alive.
