The San Antonio Spurs are hot right now and they will take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in a possible NBA Finals preview Thursday night.
Just when everyone started initially to count the Spurs out (again), they have come alive in the final stages of this NBA season. Parker’s has been playing well and Leonard’s rise to stardom have elevated this team to six-straight wins. They could still be described as a little banged up (Duncan and Manu Ginobili are now battling injuries), but provided that they’re healthy come playing time, they would have been a force to be reckoned with.
After plenty of criticism to begin the summer season, the Cavaliers have turned a corner. LeBron James is back to playing such as an MVP, and mid-season acquisitions J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and Timofey Mozgov have easily fit in much better than anyone might have expected. The Cavaliers are jelling and they’re dangerous right now.
The main element matchup because of this game will be James vs. Leonard. If Leonard can continue steadily to play lights-out on the offensive end of the ground like he did recently contrary to the Toronto Raptors, the Spurs are going to be in terrific shape.
In the long run, I see the Cavaliers spoiling the Spurs’winning streak. They’ve to lose at some point, and being that two of these main guys are working with ailments, I wouldn’t be surprised if Cleveland steals this 1 near the conclusion of the game. NBA Picks Thursday Take CLEVELAND
