Well, buckle up basketball junkies, because the NBA is serving up some Lone Star State showdown tonight! The San Antonio Spurs, with their not-so-hot 13W-48L record, are saddling up and heading to the Toyota Center to face off against the somewhat less abysmal 26W-34L Houston Rockets. Yeah, you heard it right, it’s a Texas tussle under the arena lights with a 09:00PM EST tipoff. Now, we all know the Spurs are trailing like a three-legged horse in a stampede, a whopping 23.0 games back in the Western conference. The Rockets, on the other hand, are only 9.5 games back in the same conference. So, it’s like comparing a tumbleweed to a cactus, but hey, it’s still the wild West! The over/under is set at a tantalizing 227.5, with the Spurs line at 6.0, and the Rockets line at -6.0. Now, don’t let those records fool you, both teams are fresh off wins; the Rockets blasted PHX 118-109 on 03/02/24, and the Spurs skewered IND 117-105 on 03/03/24. So, who’s ready for some basketball?
