The Spurs try to extend their 8 day winning streak tonight against the struggling Cleveland Cavaliers. Well, it’s only a 2 game winning streak, but thanks to the schedule-makers and the Lone Star break of 5 straight days off, the Spurs haven’t had a loss in over a week. The last two wins were exciting affairs, with amazing comebacks in the final few minutes, leading to overtime wins. The Houston win wasn’t officially in the books until 6 days later, after the league denied a protest triggered by the basket that didn’t count. With those two wins and nearly a week of rest in the books, the Spurs face the Cavaliers, who aren’t good this year. Hopefully, last minute heroics won’t be necessary tonight, but the Spurs have made a habit of not overpowering anyone, so look for Kevin Love to go off tonight on the complacent home team. This would be a good night for Lonnie Walker IV to have a reprise of his breakout performance against the Rockets, and for DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge to shake off the rust and dominate bottom tier Eastern Conference team. Go SPURS GooOOOoo!!
Cleveland Cavaliers (5-18) vs. San Antonio Spurs (9-14)
