San Antonio Spurs at Denver Nuggets

Thursday December 16, 2010 10:30 PM EST

Line: Spurs -2

The Spurs now have the best record in the NBA. They are strong on the road as well with only 1 loss away from home. Denver on the other hand has struggled on the road while only losing 1 game at home. They currently have a 10 home game winning streak.

Stats to consider:

San Antonio Spurs:

  • The Spurs are 21-3 with an 8-1 away record.
  • Points per game: 105.8 (5th)
  • Points allowed per game: 96.2 (8th)
  • Rebounds per game: 42 (9th)
  • Assists ┬áper game: 23.7 (3rd)

Denver Nuggets:

  • Denver is 15-9 with a 11-1 home record.
  • Points per game: 106.8 (3rd)
  • Points allowed per game: 104.4 (23rd)
  • Rebounds per game: 41.2 (18th)
  • Assists per game: 21.2 (14th)

What to watch for:

  • Spurs SG Manu Ginobili leads the team with 20.2 PPG and 1.8 SPG. He is their #1 3 point shooter and is poised to lead this team deep into the playoffs. C Tim Duncan leads the team with 9.3 RPG and 2 BPG with 13.4 PPG. PG Tony Parker leads the team with 7 APG and is 2nd on the team with 16.9 PPG.
  • Nuggets SF Carmelo Anthony is unguardable. He leads the team with 23.7 PPG and 8.3 RPG. PG Chauncey Billups leads the team with 5.4 APG and is 3rd on the team with 14.4 PPG. C Nene Hilario is averaging 15.2 PPG and 7.1 RPG.

This is a tough basketball pick. Both teams are going to bring their A game into this one. Denver plays very well at home, while the Spurs play well about everywhere. The Spurs now have a 6 game winning streak, and their last loss was at Los Angeles (Clippers). With the Spurs playing last night, and squeeking out a 92-90 win, I think the Spurs will struggle. They only have one loss on the road, but they have played 6 straight home games and lost their last road game.
