Who’s Playing

Atlanta @ San Antonio

Current Records: Atlanta 9-9; San Antonio 4-12

What to Know

After a five-game homestand, the Atlanta Hawks will be on the road. They will take on the San Antonio Spurs at 8:30 p.m. ET Wednesday at AT&T Center. If the contest is anything like the Hawks’ 134-129 win from their previous meeting in April, the scorekeeper will be kept real busy.

Atlanta has more to be thankful for after their matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday. Atlanta enjoyed a cozy 113-101 victory over Oklahoma City. Atlanta’s point guard Trae Young did his thing and shot 5-for-9 from downtown and finished with 30 points and six dimes.

As for San Antonio, it looks like they got the smaller half of the wishbone at Thanksgiving dinner. It was close but no cigar for the Spurs as they fell 115-111 to the Phoenix Suns on Monday. The defeat was just more heartbreak for San Antonio, who fell 123-121 when the teams previously met in May. Their loss shouldn’t obscure the performances of point guard Dejounte Murray, who posted a triple-double on 18 points, 11 assists, and ten boards, and shooting guard Derrick White, who had 19 points. Murray’s performance made up for a slower game against the Minnesota Timberwolves last week.

The Hawks are the favorite in this one, with an expected 4-point margin of victory. The smart bettors have been the ones to keep their money on Atlanta’s opponents whenever they hit the road.

Atlanta’s victory lifted them to 9-9 while San Antonio’s defeat dropped them down to 4-12. We’ll see if Atlanta can repeat their recent success or if San Antonio bounces back and reverse their fortune.
