Through 2 Quarters
Down seven at the end of last quarter, the Phoenix Suns have now snagged the lead. At halftime neither squad has the contest in the bag, but Phoenix leads 53-48 over the San Antonio Spurs.
The Suns have been led by center JaVale McGee, who so far has ten points along with six rebounds. One thing to keep an eye out for is Jae Crowder’s foul situation as he currently sits at three.
San Antonio has enjoyed the tag-team combination of point guard Dejounte Murray and center Jakob Poeltl. The former has eight points and seven assists in addition to three boards, while the latter has ten points along with six rebounds. A double-double would be Murray’s seventh in a row.
San Antonio hasn’t been much of a second-half team this year, losing 83% of the time when they were down at the break.

What to Know
The San Antonio Spurs haven’t won a game against the Phoenix Suns since April 17th, but they’ll be looking to end the drought on Monday. San Antonio is on the road again on Monday and plays against Phoenix at 9 p.m. ET Dec. 6 at Footprint Center. The Spurs will be strutting in after a victory while Phoenix will be stumbling in from a loss.
Even if it wasn’t a dominant performance, San Antonio beat the Golden State Warriors 112-107 this past Saturday. Shooting guard Derrick White and point guard Dejounte Murray were among the main playmakers for San Antonio as the former had 25 points and the latter dropped a double-double on 23 points and 12 rebounds along with seven dimes.
Meanwhile, the Suns’ and the Warriors’ matchup this past Friday was up for grabs at halftime, but Phoenix was thoroughly outmatched 67-48 in the second half. Phoenix found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unfortunate 118-96 punch to the gut against Golden State. Point guard Cameron Payne just could not get things rolling his way, finishing with only seven points on 3-for-17 shooting in his 25 minutes on the court.
The Spurs are expected to lose this next one by 7.5. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a four-game streak of ATS wins.
San Antonio’s win brought them up to 8-13 while Phoenix’s defeat pulled them down to 19-4. San Antonio is 3-4 after wins this year, and Phoenix is 2-1 after losses.
