The Spurs look to make it 12 in a row as they get set for a Thursday-Friday back to back.
The Spurs will start in Phoenix on Thursday and finish up in Los Angeles on Friday.
As for the Lakers, they’ve gone back to their losing ways and have dropped 4 straight, all by double digits.
The Spurs have ran off 12 straight wins and have yet to lose in the month of January, as they have a very difficult stretch coming up.
After their meetings with Phoenix and Los Angeles, they will go into Golden State, come home to take on Houston, and finish up in Cleveland to cap off the month.
The Spurs have had plenty of time to rest as they were last in action on Sunday, so playing a back to back may not hurt them here. Especially if they do what they’re supposed to do against both teams and blow them out. If they can do that in either or both, the starters will certainly get some time to rest.
The Spurs demolished the Lakers back on 12/11 as they grabbed a home 109-87 win over. The Spurs shot 54% while the Lakers shot a mere 40%.
Los Angeles has dropped 8 of their last 9 games and have looked horrid during this recent stretch of 4 losses.
The Lakers have lost all 4 by double digits and their most recent loss came Wednesday in a 112-93 fashion to the Kings inside the Staples Center. While there has been many weak suits to this Lakers team, the defense has been about as bad as it gets.
LA allows 106.1 points per game and they allowed Cousins to dominate in the paint on Wednesday. Cousins finished with 36 points and 16 rebounds as the Lakers simply had no answer for him.
They’ll have an even tougher task with Tim Duncan and LaMarcus Aldridge to deal with on Friday. Duncan has averaged 9.0 points and 7.7 rebounds and Aldridge as put in 16.1 points to go along with 9.0 rebounds.

Free NBA Prediction:
The Spurs will certainly be big road favorites here, but they are simply way too much for the Lakers here.
Inside, the Lakers have to deal with both Duncan and Aldridge who will have their way in the paint. As for the outside game, Green and Parker will have ease to work the arc against this horrible defense.
