The San Antonio Spurs are coming off of winning their 50th game of the season and for an NBA best 14th consecutive time. They defeated the Dallas Mavericks 92 to 91 back on Thursday night. In that game we saw Tim Duncan completely take control of the game scoring 28 points while grabbing 19 rebounds.
Cleveland comes hobbling in without their two best players. Kyrie Irving is out 3 to 4 weeks with a shoulder injury. Anderson Varejao went down a few months back. Now the team is in San Antonio and are looking toward Luke Walton and Omri Casspri to help defeat this well oiled machine named, San Antonio Spurs.
I don’t see much of a game here as the Spurs will jump out on top early leaving time for Pop to rest Duncan and the rest of the starters. Quick preview right? That is why we call it that and why we don’t need to spend much time on a team like Cleveland.
Before I go, here are the projected starters for tonights game:
San Antonio SpursPG Corey Joseph SG Danny Green SF Kawhi Leonard PF Tim Duncan C Thiago Splitter
Cleveland CavaliersPG Shaun Livingston SG Dion Waiters SF Alonzo Gee PF Tristan Thompson C Tyler Zeller
