The Spurs are flying very under the radar right now as they look for their 13th win in 15 tries on Thursday night in Memphis.
With the Warriors really overshadowing the Western Conference, the Spurs are just cruising with no target on their backs.
As for Memphis, they are right there with San Antonio. They’ve own 8 of 10 and come in off a 9 point win over the Pelicans.
The Spurs won in 2 ways on Wednesday after knocking off the Bucks.
They not only routed the Bucks for their 12th win in 14 games, but they also got their starters some much needed rest with the 2nd leg of a back-to-back looming. No Spurs player played more than 25 minutes on Wednesday, which will ensure there is no fatigue on their part come Thursday night.
The Spurs have the offensive ability to keep up the scoring, but their defensive effort has been what is winning them games.
San Antonio held Milwaukee to just 70 points on Wednesday and has held 7 straight teams to 92 points or less. On the season, the Spurs are allowing just 88.8 points per game.
SG Danny Green has hit his coldest streak of the season. Green has shot a combined 11 for 39 over the Spurs last 5 games.
The Grizzlies got off to a slow start this season, but have really turned things around, especially as of late.
Memphis has won 8 of 10 and overcame a slow start against the Hornets to eventually grab a 113-104 win on Tuesday. C Marc Gasol scored 38 points and went a phenomenal 16 of 16 from the free throw line.
The sight of Gasol playing well has to be a breath of fresh air for the Memphis coaches and fans. He’s struggled all season long after signing his big deal as he’s averaged only 11.2 points in the prior 5 games before Tuesday’s outburst.
Memphis still does need to pick up their offensive play going forward. They average only 97.1 points per game.
They have been the best free throw shooting team in the league. Shooting at 84 percent from the line, they currently hold an NBA record for highest percentage.
NBA Betting Trends:

Free NBA Prediction:
Two of the best in the West go at it here. With the Spurs well rested from Wednesday’s front end, this gives them a solid advantage here.
Typically this older team would be fatigued, but that won’t be the case going in.
