Spurs Shorthanded Without LaMarcus Aldridge, Derrick White and Rudy Gay
March 2Michael ArinzeSportsGrid
If you’re wondering why the Knicks are now two-point road favorites against the Spurs, look no further than San Antonio’s injury report as LaMarcus Aldridge, Derrick White, Rudy Gay Devin Vassell have all been ruled out for tonight’s game.
This is a tough scheduling spot for the Spurs, who are coming off an overtime loss last night to the Nets. San Antonio will also be playing their third game in four nights, and they’ll be facing a Knicks team that comes into this matchup with a day’s rest advantage.
This game’s biggest angle has to be the current streak the Knicks are on in the first half. New York has covered the spread in the first half in their last 13 games, and they’re also on a 20-2 run in their last 22 games in this spot.
FanDuel Sportsbook lists the Knicks as a half-point favorite in the first half, and that number looks too good to pass up against a Spurs team that will be shorthanded and possibly weary when they step on the court again for the second time in 24 hours.
