The San Antonio Spurs beat the lowly Sacramento Kings in their last outing, winning the game 114-104, while out in Oklahoma City the Thunder weren’t as lucky, falling to the Portland Trail Blazers (final score 126-121).
San Antonio Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs just came out of the gates way too flat to start the game. And because of that the Kings came out getting a huge lead over them early.
San Antonio trailed 37-15 at the end of the first quarter. But after that, they started to buckle down defensively.
In each of the final three periods, the Spurs held Sacramento to lower scoring totals each quarter. And by the final frame, they totally outclassed the Kings, outscoring them 32-18.
Now that quarter allowed them to get the win, however if it wasn’t for that they would have fell short. So that means against OKC in the upcoming matchup, they need to come out with more energy.
After getting thoroughly outplayed in the first half, San Antonio flipped the switch in the second half. But against OKC that isn’t going to happen. So they need to come out with more effort if they hope to win again.
Oklahoma City Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder lost to the Portland Trail Blazers in their last outing, and their play in the second half had a huge part to do with that.
After coming out looking like the better team (OKC led 40-29 by the end of the first quarter) Oklahoma City started to slip up in the final two periods of play.
They got outscored 65-54 and that was why they ultimately fell behind. However, next outing if they hope to beat San Antonio they can’t allow that to happen again.
The Spurs do a fantastic job competing for 48 minutes, so that means Portland needs to be ready to bring it for four quarters.
If they can do that, they’ll come away victorious. Otherwise this is going to be a long night for them.
