Point Spread Pick:

It appeared that San Antonio thought they just had to show up in Game 4 to get the win. Obviously that wasn’t the case. The Spurs’ shooting was a poor 44.3 in the loss; down more than four percentage points from their season average and that was their best stat. San Antonio was 3 of 18 from behind the arc and shot a pathetic 57.9% from the charity stripe. I expect the real Spurs to be back for Game 5. The line at 7.5 is the highest it has been in the series, but keep in mind that San Antonio’s winning margin in their 3 victories was 24, 17 and 15.
Take the San Antonio Spurs -7.5.

Why waste money? Bet this game at and lay -105 instead of -110!
