Gregg Popovich's crew is coming off a frustrating sixth straight loss, with the latest being at the hands of the Atlanta Hawks in a Thanksgiving Eve matchup. While they got back on track from the 3-point line by making 12, they surrendered 24 free throw attempts in the 18-point loss.
Meanwhile, the Celtics snapped their three-game winning streak on Wednesday, falling 123-104 to the Brooklyn Nets on a night where they shot just 37.4%.
The series has been split in each of the last two seasons, with the Celtics coming out on top 143-140 in an overtime thriller in their last meeting in April.

San Antonio Spurs vs Boston Celtics Prediction
The Spurs avoided being blown out in the first few weeks of the season, but their inconsistencies are leading to that happening on more of a regular basis as they go on. The loss of Devin Vassell will likely prove devastating at a time they were already reeling and in desperate need of a victory.
San Antonio simply has too many issues to address before they can start winning some games again, and it's hard to predict them coming out on top against a better team until they start to play well for full 48-minute stretches.
Celtics 116, Spurs 109
