San Antonio was just a bucket short of a victory this past Friday and fell 107-106 to the Portland Trail Blazers. Small forward DeMar DeRozan put forth a good effort for the losing side as he dropped a double-double on 26 points and ten dimes.
Meanwhile, the Suns beat the Sacramento Kings 122-114 this past Thursday. Among those leading the charge for Phoenix was center Deandre Ayton, who posted a double-double on 26 points and 11 boards.
San Antonio have to know they'll be fighting an uphill battle given the 12 point spread they are up against. The odds have been favorable for them against the spread on the road this season, even if it's been tough sledding overall. They are 16-7-1 ATS in away games but only 28-25-1 all in all.
It was close but no cigar for San Antonio as they fell 103-99 to Phoenix when the two teams previously met in January of last year. Can the Spurs avenge their loss, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We'll soon find out.
