The San Antonio Spurs look to keep rolling after winning four straight games. On the season, the Spurs are averaging 101.1 points on 45.6 percent shooting and are allowing 97.1 points on 44.3 percent shooting. Kawhi Leonard is averaging 15.4 points and 7.4 rebounds while Tim Duncan is averaging 14.4 points and 9.5 rebounds. Tony Parker is dishing 4.9 assists and Danny Green is shooting 42.5 percent from the field. The San Antonio Spurs have allowed less than 100 points in eight of their last 12 games and are allowing just 43.7 percent shooting in their last five games. The Spurs are 22-7 SU on their home court, which includes four straight victories.
The Bulls are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a ATS loss. The Spurs are 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Sunday games. The under is 11-3 in the last 14 meetings.
Although the Bulls are missing their top two players, they're still capable of hanging with some of the top teams in the league. I can't leave this many points on the table. Give me Chicago.
