Spurs vs Warriors Game 3 Odds 2013 NBA Playoff Picks

0 Comments

The result after two games at the ATT Arena in San Antonio seems favorable for the Golden State Warriors. Game 1 went to a double overtime. The Warriors led by 16 points with four minutes to go in the fourth quarter, but the Spurs still pulled even and send the game to overtime when Golden State missed eight of their last nine shots.

Spurs vs Warriors Game 3 Odds 2013 NBA Playoff Picks

Mark Jackson finished seventh in Coach of the Year voting with 47 votes after leading the Warriors to a milestone season and a spot in the NBA Playoffs. But how much does that award voting really say about Jackson’s coaching ability?

A 3-pointer shot by Manu Ginobili with 1.2 seconds to go in the second overtime gave San Antonio a 129-127 win, but falling by just 2 points in double overtime game in San Antonio didn’t feel like a loss for the Warriors, instead, it gave the team the confidence they needed to break a 29-game losing skid at the ATT Arena. And that’s exactly what happened last Wednesday night. In Game 2, Golden State came out on fire behind Klay Thompson’s 34-points and built up a 19-point halftime lead en route to a 100-91 victory over the Spurs to even the Western Conference semifinals.

There’s something definitive for Game 3. Golden State’s confidence is high, and that is enough to put San Antonio’s reputation as top favorite in peril. Golden State’s game has been way better at Oracle Arena all season, especially in the postseason. The Warriors went 3-0 at home in the first round against the Denver Nuggets, and if it wasn’t for Game 1 collapse in the fourth quarter, Golden State would be returning home with a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

Game Odds:
San Antonio Spurs: +2.5-110, ML +125
Golden State Warriors: -2.5-110, ML -145
Game Total: 202.5, o/u-110

While this might be the closest game of the series, Golden State has the potential to upset the Spurs this Friday night and get closer to their first conference finals since the 1975-76 season.

Through the first two games, Golden State has been the better team by far, and despite Game 1 loss, the Warriors have been superior in every aspect of the game. Golden State held the lead for 95 of 106 minutes. The only time the Spurs were able to pull an advantage was during the two overtimes in Game 1, when San Antonio rallied from 16 points down in the final four minutes of regulation. In addition, Golden State has outrebounded the Spurs 105 to 93 and outshot them 48.3 percent to 41.7 percent.

The Spurs were 0-2 at Golden State this season, though San Antonio rested most of its starters in one of the two games.
