Who wants to watch a nasty game in the NBA tonight?
Almost every night, we’ll see a weaker go away with a consecutive win in the Association, but finding that annoyance can be tough, especially with a blocking vehicle loaded on the night. Monday.
However, there’s a team that I think is gearing up for some Valentine’s Day fun: San Antonio Spurs.
Spurs come into this game after two consecutive double-digit wins, and they will face the Chicago Bulls without Zach LaVine, Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso tonight. Let’s break odds via WynnBET and why Spurs are ready to settle a sadness.
The Bulls have been one of the strongest teams at the Eastern Conference this season, but they could have a tough time in this game with LaVine left out of the lineup.
Chicago has taken a big step back in defense, placing 19th in the NBA in defensive ratings this season and playing the league’s 23rd defensive line in the last 15 games.
That’s a bad sign for a Spurs team that likes to get up to speed and sit in the top half of the league in terms of attack ratings. San Antonio plays at a No 5 pace in the league, and if easy runs on Ball and Caruso are available, the Spurs will find them.
This will turn into a showdown between Dejounte Murray and DeMar DeRozan, and while there may be more momentum for DeRozan against his former team, it’s not the best match in terms of style for the Bulls.
Normally, sublimation and high scoring matches would help the Bulls, as they are 4th in the league in offensive stats, but without LaVine alongside DeRozan, there would have been less error from the support cast. Support of the Bulls.
Chicago have only lost 5-5 in the 10 games LaVine has missed this season, so don’t be surprised if the Spurs can pull off a straight win down the road.
