Point Spread Pick
Both of teams haven’t been racking up the W’s in recent games, but they have been scoring. San Antonio has scored 100 or greater points in 15 straight while Houston scored over 100 points in 6 of 7 before back to back games against defensively minded Memphis. Speaking of the Grizzlies games, the Rockets were on a mini roll winning 6 of 7 before the 2-game set and we think they’ll get back on track tonight versus the Spurs. Take the Houston Rockets -1.5
