Oklahoma City Thunder | Preseason Game #6: San Antonio Spurs

The Thunder wraps up their preseason tonight in San Antonio when they take on the Spurs. San Antonio is largely regarded as the worst team coming into this season, and they are very clearly preparing for a season of tanking. Tonight’s game has no consequences in regard to future draft picks, so expect at least an attempt at a competitive game from both sides. If the Thunder shoots as well as they have been through five preseason games, though, this could turn into a blowout.

Thunder Against the Spread | Tentatively Take the Thunder to Cover in San Antonio

OKC has covered the spread just 4 times in 9 tries since returning from the All-Star Break. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is questionable to play tonight with a sore ankle, but I think the Thunder has a solid chance to cover considering the Spurs have not been a great bet all season long.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #69: San Antonio Spurs

The Spurs are lacking a true superstar, but Dejounte Murray has proven himself as an elite playmaker, putting up 20.8 points, 8.4 assists, and 9.4 rebounds per game. San Antonio also has five other players that average double-digit scoring, and collectively, the Spurs are 8th in the NBA in scoring.

OKC Thunder | Game #58 Preview: San Antonio Spurs

OKC’s youth has excelled in the absence of key players like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Luguentz Dort. While they haven’t put together too many wins, they have managed to stay competitive, and the heavy minutes played in moments like these should pay dividends down the road. Tonight the Thunder hosts the San Antonio Spurs, who are dealing with their own struggles this season.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #44 Preview: San Antonio Spurs

Tonight, the Thunder continues their long road trip as they take on the Spurs in San Antonio. The Spurs have had their own tough season thus far, struggling their way to a 16-28 record. At this point, they’re just a few games out of a spot for the play-in tournament, and there’s still plenty of season left, but they don’t really have a roster that’s built to compete.

Oklahoma City Thunder | Game #9 Preview: San Antonio Spurs

The Oklahoma City Thunder is just 2-6 on the season, but both wins have been incredible comebacks against the Los Angeles Lakers. Tonight, the Thunder is back at home as they host the San Antonio Spurs, who have also had a bit a rough start to the season.

Thunder Against The Spread | A Different Offensive Team When Playing At Home

Fresh off its first home win of the season, OKC comes home to face a San Antonio team that has had it’s share of struggles this season as well. Despite a losing record, the Spurs have been very good against the spread on the road, including a 1-0 record as a road favorite. That said, the Thunder are coving 66% of the time as a home dog and are 4-4 overall as an underdog this season.

Thunder Against The Spread | Gotta Love The Spurs & The Under Tonight

I’m not saying that I’m giving up on the Thunder here but they are slowly losing that road warrior stigma that they had so strongly just a month back. Oklahoma City has lost three of the last four games, against the spread, on the road and last night’s loss to an undermanned Dallas team is enough to make me believe that a Spurs team absent of Rudy Gay and possibly LaMarcus Aldridge could cover as a favorite against the Thunder as well.
