Their last meeting with the Spurs went down to the wire. However, the Kings inexperience showed as the Spurs out-executed them down the stretch. San Antonio went on a 15-6 run in the final two minutes of the game, utilizing a perimeter-oriented lineup that opened up the floor.
Spurs Probable Starters (44-16)
|Tony Parker||Danny Green||Kawhi Leonard||Tim Duncan||DeJuan Blair|
San Antonio is playing the final game in its second and last back-to-back-to-back set this season. And they have a chance to accomplish a feat no pundit would’ve predicted possible considering the lockout-shortened schedule. They have an opportunity to win three games in three nights by a margin of at least 20 or more points. Their big three is also well-rested. In blowout victories over the Lakers and Warriors, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili averaged fewer than 24 minutes of playing time.
