It was an exhilarating night for the San Antonio Spurs as they shrewdly outscored the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors visited the AT&T Center in Texas yesterday, only to fall to their ninth consecutive, and 25 overall, loss to the Spurs. San Antonio was determined to make franchise history, and didn’t stop until the final buzzer rang with 111-94 on the board after regulation time. Each team gave it their all in this match-up, but the Spurs had a night of team and personal victories that netted them the win in the end.
San Antonio was simply on fire! Already atop the Southwest Division with an 18-3 record, the Spurs continue to bring their all to the court. Out of their 21 regular season games, this team has now won 18. That sets a franchise record for the Texas team. This win was all due to the remarkable roster of players that it boasts. Player of the game Tony Parker had 19 points, 2 rebounds and 9 assists, while George Hill was good for 17 points [3 3-pointers], 2 assists and 2 blocks. Basketball odds.
To further impress, DeJuan Blair achieved his third double-double of the season with 15 points and 13 rebounds. In total, the Spurs had six players that managed double digits in this game. It was won with a “penetrating and kick out kind of game”, as Hill put it. That strategy made for a lot of open shots, which is something San Antonio knows exactly how to exploit. Basketball spreads.
The Spurs extended their winning streak to three games by being open, making passes and being aggressive. So far, this strategy has worked well for them. Basketball lines.
The fact that the Warriors lost PG Stephen Curry didn’t help their chances. In suffering his fourth major ankle sprain this season, he left his team and coach in disarray. Even though coach Keith Smart moved players, switched positions and brought other players in, the team was left defenseless and exposed. That is just something that you cannot do against one the NBA’s better teams. The result was yet another loss this season, moving them to 8-14 and their fifth consecutive loss.
