San Antonio is the best home team in the NBA. Last time these two met, Oklahoma City blew their doors off. The Oklahoma City starters didn’t play into the fourth quarter as Oklahoma City led by as much as 30 points.
However, the ageless Spurs sit at 15-9, and a very impressive league leading 10-w at the AT&T Center. Led by Tony Parker and Gary Neal, this is not your daddy’s Duncan led Spurs. The Spurs are on three game winning streak and also had the night off last night.
Oklahoma City’s victory last night was impressive. trailing by as much as 12 points in the second half and by eight going into the fourth quarter, OKC used 26 points by Kevin Durant and James Harden in the fourth quarter to beat the Memphis Grizzlies.
Manu Ginobili and Thabo Sefolosha are out for this game.
Keys to the game
Harden is weird on the road. Shoots bad. Plays bad defense. He needs to step up in this very crucial road game for OKC.
Limit them for the Spurs. This is a veteran team. If you give this team extra baskets they will beat you. Need to limit the extra chances that the Spurs get tonight.
fast break points
Oklahoma City needs to run on this old team. They did it last time they played and the Spurs were gassed. Run on this team and it could be a blow out.
