Featured Game | San Antonio Spurs vs. Washington Wizards
Why the Spurs can cover
The miles are piling up for Washington, who is on the road for the fourth year in a row. The Wizards went three straight games without big man Kristaps Porzingis with a sprained left ankle, and he could be slowed down by that problem on Monday night. San Antonio put up a strong fight against Phoenix on Saturday as they recovered from an 11-point deficit early in the fourth quarter.
Keldon Johnson had a three-pointer game with 47.8 seconds remaining rule to force overtime but Spurs came up short in overtime. Johnson led the Spurs with a team-high 34 points while Jeremy Sochan posted a career-high 30 points. San Antonio has covered the spread in seven of the last eight games between these teams, and it has covered the spread in four of the last five games.
Why the Wizards can cover
Washington is playing its best basketball of the season and going into this game on a five-game winning streak. The Wizards delivered a 113-103 win over New Orleans on Saturday while Daniel Gafford took the lead with a season-high 21 points. They excelled on the glass, beating out the Pelicans 53-42 and grabbing 13 offensive rebounds.
San Antonio has lost 10 of their last 11 games and will struggle to emotionally recover from their overtime loss to Phoenix. The Spurs are just two games ahead of Houston at the bottom of Western Conference standings and have only gone the span once in their last five games.
