The Spurs seem to have just decided to stop losing as they finish out the regular season with only 7 games left to go. OKC would like to change that and they are well-rested and on their own home court in what many people consider a Western Conference Finals preview Thursday at 8:00.
Neither Indiana or Miami can threaten San Antonio for home court advantage throughout the playoffs but the Thunder still have an outside chance. A win in OKC would all but wrap it up for the Spurs as they try to return to the NBA Finals. San Antonio's win streak to close out the season is the stuff of legends, especially as stars Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, and even Tony Parker are seeing limited minutes down the stretch to prep for the playoffs. Unfortunately for the Spurs they'll be playing the Thunder on the second end of a back-to-back schedule while OKC will be on two days rest and at home.
OKC is a very impressive 31-7 on their home court this season and have won 8 of their last 9 at the Chesapeake Energy Center. Of course the Spurs just so happen to be the best team in the NBA this season so past trends can be thrown out the window, including OKC winning 8 of their last 10.
The Thunder have gone 2-0 so far this season against the Spurs including a 94-88 win on November 27th and most recently a 113-100 win in San Antonio. On that December 21st game oddsmakers had San Antonio as 3-point home favorites whereas a SU bet on the Thunder cashed out at +130 as did tan over bet on he 207.5 total.
San Antonio is 24-13-0 ATS on the road this season
San Antonio is 22-15-0 against the over/under on the road this season
