What a frustrating performance that was from the San Antonio Spurs last night. When I wrote the tips yesterday, Marcos Belinelli hadn’t been deemed inactive (or at least I wasn’t aware of it). That was annoying. Spurs are one of those teams that can lose one player – like Rudy Gay – but two is just too much and it showed.
Patty and Bryn just can’t cover as much as they were required to. Spurs just looked lost out there. Very frustrating.
And as has been standard for us lately – Jazz failed to cover the point spread by a score. If this all evens out then we’re in for a hot end of the season run ha. I did love the story about the heckler that wouldn’t shut up that motivated the Jazz. Things like that are great. Thing is that one was there for the taking and Jazz should have covered easily. Donovan Mitchell had that 14 minute span in the 3rd/4th that was just brutal where he looked like he was ready for his bed.
Lot of interesting plays today. Nuggets +1 is tempting as they play the Warriors better than any other team in the NBA. Lakers -6.5 also tempting as Bulls are trash and Lakers really have a point to prove without LeBron.
Kind of like the Heats ability to stifle Giannis so +8.5 seems nice.
Just going to go with the one play.
Timberwolves vs 76ers Betting Tips:
This should be an interesting game.
The 76ers host the Minnesota Timberwolves and Jimmy Butler gets to go up against his former team. You know the crowd is going to be fired up and so are the teams. Ben Simmons is also coming into this one hot after an exceptional performance against the New York Knicks. Not just the stats but man he was a busy boy that day.
76ers have a few tough opponents coming up so this is a big test for them. They want to show everyone they are to be feared and what better game to do it against the Minnesota Timberwolves? Karl-Anthony Towns is obviously coming in hot as well. Jeff Teague may not play and if he is he won’t be 100%.
I’ve got to think this will be an all out game. I was very tempted with 76ers -6 but the more I think about it – Minnesota are rested and will be up for this game too. Both teams are going to be battling to the death in this one.
