Spurs vs. 76ers: Free NBA Picks and Predictions

The Spurs glory days might be over right before your own eyes. This group has been sent by the forced commerce of Kawhi Leonard into a death spiral in just the second year of DeMar DeRozan.
The Spurs come into tonight champions of the last seven in a row and they are 2-10 SU over their last 12 games. Theyre just 2-12-1 ATS this season and the wheels have started to come off. LaMarcus Aldridge is slowly but definitely aging and without him acting as the go-to alternative, the Spurs have had to rely more on DeRozan and a range of young players who just seem as though they arent prepared to take the flashlight set forth prior to them by all the years of tournament contention.
Its a reminder that nothing lasts forever, because we understand it, if that is the end of the Spurs dynasty. It is definitely going to be challenging to break out of the slump tonight against one of the East while I think this group has the talent to turn things round and create one more shove towards the Western Conference playoffs.
The Sixers have had their issues this season, particularly in regards to shooting the ball. They take at the three better at home this year, but they are still inconsistent in that place. If they dont knock down shots in Friday night, then it will indicate that the Spurs have a very good likelihood of covering this distribute.
One area the Spurs have really struggled within this season has been their defense. The Spurs defense usually ranks in the top half of this league each year without question. This season has been anything but.
San Antonio ranks 28th in defensive efficiency, giving up 113.6 points per 100 possessions, while they attempt to perform slow to cure their poor defense, that might not do the job tonight against a Sixers squad without any trouble pushing the speed if the game requires it.
Philadelphia is playing more than usual this year in the home, but they might wind up pushing on the pace in this one since the Spurs appear vulnerable to teams who push the speed.
Even the Sixers defense is certainly ready for the battle also, but something tells me they may relax some in that section against the Spurs. Doing this with speed and crime might be the strategy, although brett Brown will need to wager his old manager Gregg Popovich.
The Spurs have cashed the more than in five consecutive games and theyve enabled more than 116 points per game.
The Sixers are around front half of a back to back, thus expending too much energy on defense tonight may crush their odds of winning tomorrow. Considering this is the front half of a back to back, I could visit Philly letting their much superior crime do the work tonight and relaxing a bit on protection.
The last time the two played nearly one year agothey played with a 142 points. I doubt we see that high of a score in this one, but it would not surprise me to watch Philly reach 120 points or more. If that happens, the more is the drama.
