Spurs Looking for Longest Win Streak of Season

The Washington Wizards and the San Antonio Spurs meet on Wednesday at AT&T Center. ESPN will have the telecast and tip-off is set for 9:30 pm EST.

Oddsmakers opened the Spurs as -6-point favorites versus the Wizards, while the game’s total opened at 204.5. The line is still at Spurs -6, but the total has dropped to 202.

The Spurs have won four straight games. In a tough regular season, that matches their longest streak of the season. The first was Dec. 4-9. San Antonio’s latest win was Monday in an 89-75 win over injury-depleted Golden State.

LaMarcus Aldridge poured in 33 points and took 12 rebounds for the Spurs.

The Warriors were without Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson. They all missed the game with injuries. Golden State even lost its fourth All-Star, Draymond Green, to a pelvic contusion in the first half.

Aldridge scored 19 of his points in the final quarter. He hit 7 of 10 field-goal attempts and went 5 for 5 from the free-throw line. Aldridge also had six rebounds, one steal and one block in the final quarter.

With the win, San Antonio moved into fifth place in the Western Conference standings. With 13 games to play there is plenty to be decided between now and the middle of April.

The Spurs had lost 11 of 15 games, where they gave up more than 100 points in each loss. San Antonio has held opponents under the century mark in three of its last four games.

Wizards Coming off Big Wins in Boston & Indiana

Washington heads to San Antonio on a two-game win streak. The wins included an overtime game in Boston on March 14 and Saturday’s 109-102 victory over Indiana. Bradley Beal scored 19 points to lead the Wizards in that victory. Marcin Gortat added 18, as Washington claimed the head-to-head tiebreaker with Indiana.

Washington continues to play well without star guard John Wall. He is out indefinitely after knee surgery at the end of January. It will begin play Wednesday in fourth place in the Eastern Conference. They are just a half-game behind third-place Cleveland.

The Wizards have played as a team more since Wall’s injury. They are maximizing their assist percentage over the past 22 games. Washington has been assisting on 69.2 percent of its made field goals. That is the highest percentage in the league.

Washington is averaging 28.5 assists per game since Jan. 27. Again that is the most in the league.
