The San Antonio Spurs may not look like a championship contender the same way the Golden State Warriors, Houston Rockets or Cleveland Cavaliers do, but they continue to quietly be the best second-tier team in the league, and one that should be a legitimate threat come April.
As for the Philadelphia 76ers, they’ve hit a bit of a rough patch, but continue to look like a team worthy of a playoff spot out East. They have won three of their last four games, but before that they dropped five in a row, as well as nine of 10.
San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs enter this contest scoring 101.2 points per night, which is good enough for 25th place so far this season.
In terms of offensive efficiency, they’re good not great, averaging 105.1 points per 100 possessions—good enough for the 13th-best offensive efficiency in the NBA.
Defensively, the Gregg Popovich-led squad is allowing 98.1 points per night. That number puts them at first in the league.
If you’re worried that this number is influenced by pace more than efficiency, stop.
San Antonio gives up just 101.6 points per 100 possessions. That number trails only the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics (101.7 and 100.8, respectively).
Philly enters this contest scoring 108.3 points per game. That number is good enough for seventh place in the league, but is also a bit misleading considering the team is just 19th in offensive efficiency (points scored per 100 possessions).
On defense, the Sixers are allowing opponents to score 108.8 points per contest. That puts them at 25th in the NBA so far this season, but that number is also deceiving—this time on the low end.
Philadelphia gives up just 103.7 points per 100 possessions, which is good enough to give them the seventh-best defensive rating in the Association.

Free San Antonio Spurs vs. Philadelphia 76ers NBA Prediction:
On paper, there’s little reason to believe the Spurs won’t win this contest. Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid are going to be threats to keep it close, but the Spurs should wear them down defensively and walk away victorious after a strong fourth quarter.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Spurs by 9
Although the line for this game hasn’t yet been set, expect the Spurs to push it toward double digits. This one could very well be close for three quarters, but San Antonio’s tough defense should tire down a top-heavy roster by the time 0:00 strikes.
