5* NBA *BEST BET* on Spurs +5
This experienced and accomplished San Antonio squad won't go down without a fight tonight.
Consider that road teams that have trailed their last 3 games by 5 points or more at the half and are matched up against an opponent that is coming off 2 straight games in which it and its opponent scored 100 points or more are 39-13 ATS since 1996. The "play on" side has only lost by an average 3.8 points. It is also worth noting that this system is a perfect 2-0 ATS this season.
In addition, the Spurs are 8-0 ATS since the beginning of last season in road games when out for revenge for an upset loss to an opponent. They have won these games by an average score of 102.9 to 96.4.
This could be the last chance for the nucleus of Duncan, Ginobli and Parker to earn another championship ring. They won't easily hand over the torch to the Thunder. I like the Spurs chances of winning this one outright so we'll certainly take the insurance points.
