San Antonio Spurs vs Washington Wizards
NBA Regular Season
WAS VS SAS MATCH PREVIEW:
History will be against Washington Wizards when they travel to San Antonio to take on city franchise San Antonio Spurs in NBA on Thursday (IST Timing).
Wizards haven't tasted victory against Spurs since 1999, but having won four of their last six games, the visitors are in best shape to end that dismal run against the hosts.
Scott Brooks' men are 5th in Eastern Conference, eight games better off than Detroit Pistons who are at 9th, so Wizards have virtually sealed their playoff fate for this season. They are averaging 107.5 points, and are shooting at 46.9 percent in 2017-18, making them the 8th best team in NBA this season when it comes to shooting beyond the arc. The visitors are also racking up rebounds and assists at the rate of 43.0 and 24.9 per game respectively.
While hosts San Antonio Spurs will be heading into the match without their superstar Kawhi Leonard who is still recovering from a muscle injury.
Not long ago, the five-times NBA Champions were in danger of dropping out of NBA playoffs places. But Gregg Popovich's men have turned things around in the past few weeks, and have won their last four games on the bounce that includes an improbable win over defending Champions Golden State Warriors.
As a result, Spurs moved to 6th in Western Conference. But the danger still looms as Denver Nuggets, who are 9th, are just three wins away from them.
As a team, Spurs are the 28th best team in NBA this season. They are averaging just above 100 points, 102.2-point-per-game, and are accumulating 44.3 rebounds and 23.0 assists per game.
