What to Know

The San Antonio Spurs’ homestand continues as they prepare to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers at 8:30 p.m. ET Jan. 14 at AT&T Center. Cleveland will be strutting in after a win while the Spurs will be stumbling in from a loss.

San Antonio was close but no cigar on Wednesday as they fell 128-124 to the Houston Rockets. Point guard Dejounte Murray put forth a good effort for the losing side as he posted a triple-double on 32 points, 11 assists, and ten boards.

Meanwhile, the Cavaliers took their matchup against the Utah Jazz on Wednesday by a conclusive 111-91 score. The contest was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point Cleveland had established an 88-68 advantage. They can attribute much of their success to power forward Lamar Stevens, who had 23 points in addition to seven rebounds, and small forward Lauri Markkanen, who had 20 points along with six boards.

San Antonio is expected to lose this next one by 3. However, those who like betting on the underdog should be happy to hear that they are 14-7 against the spread when expected to lose.

San Antonio is now 15-26 while the Cavaliers sit at 24-18. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Spurs rank fourth in the league when it comes to fouls per game, with only 17.9 on average. But Cleveland is even better: they come into the game boasting the fewest fouls per game in the league at 16.6. We’ll see if that edge gives Cleveland a route to victory.
