Game Overview

The San Antonio Spurs (13-48) will face the Houston Rockets (26-34) on March 5, 2024, at 6:00 p.m. CST. Despite being the underdogs, the Spurs have played better after the All-Star break and will look to win their 3rd straight game.

 

Recent Performances

San Antonio Spurs:

The Spurs have shown improvement lately, winning two of their last five games, including a victory against the Indiana Pacers in their most recent matchup. Their offense has been more effective, scoring over 110 points in their wins.

Houston Rockets:

The Rockets have also won two of their last five games, with a recent win against the Phoenix Suns. However, they have been inconsistent, and their defense has been suspect, allowing over 110 points in multiple recent games.

 

Injuries and Player Matchups

San Antonio Spurs:

The Spurs have a relatively healthy roster, with Julian Champagnie listed as questionable for this game. With key players like V. Wembanyama leading the charge, the Spurs are ready to compete against the Rockets.

Houston Rockets:

The Rockets will be without Tari Eason for an extended period. While they have other key players available, the absence of Eason could impact their performance, especially defensively.

 

Prediction

The Spurs have been playing better basketball recently and have the potential to keep this game competitive. With their offensive improvements and the Rockets' inconsistent defense, the Spurs are in a good position to cover the +6.5 points spread.

Expect a closely contested game, with the Spurs keeping it within reach and potentially pulling off the upset.

Pick: San Antonio Spurs +6.5
