What you need to know about the Spurs
San Antonio made easy work of the Oklahoma City Thunder on Wednesday and carried off a 118-96 win. It was another big night for point guard Dejounte Murray, who posted a triple-double with 23 points, 14 dimes and 10 boards. It was Murray's eighth triple-double of the season and he's looking like the brightest star in a new era of Spurs basketball.
DeMar DeRozan was traded away during the offseason and this has become Murray's team. The sixth-year guard is averaging 19.2 points, 8.9 assists and 8.4 rebounds per game and is also leading the NBA in steals per game (2.0). He's an excellent defender with an emerging offensive game and he'll be priority No. 1 for the Nets on Friday.
What you need to know about the Nets
Meanwhile, Brooklyn escaped with a win on Wednesday against the Washington Wizards by the margin of a single free throw, 119-118. Center LaMarcus Aldridge was the offensive standout of the game for Brooklyn, picking up 27 points in addition to six rebounds.
The Nets came out on top in a nail-biter against the Spurs in the teams' previous meeting earlier this month, sneaking past 121-119. The rematch might be a little tougher for Brooklyn since the squad won't have home-court advantage or Kevin Durant (knee) in the lineup.
