Through 3 Quarters

The Washington Wizards typically have all the answers at home, but the San Antonio Spurs are posing a tough problem. It's still tight after three quarters, with the Spurs leading 84-78. Both teams won their last games, so San Antonio is looking to continue their success while spoiling Washington's.

San Antonio has enjoyed the tag-team combination of shooting guard Derrick White and center Jakob Poeltl. The former has 22 points and five assists along with five rebounds, while the latter has posted a double-double on 14 points and 11 boards in addition to two blocks. This makes it three consecutive games in which Poeltl has had at least ten rebounds.

San Antonio has yet to string together two consecutive wins, but this may be their chance. For now, all signs point to yes.
