Sunday NBA Playoff Winner

By Jesse Schule

 

Spurs @ Rockets

 

 

The Spurs suffered their worst lost in history in Game 1 of this series versus Houston, but they have responded with back to back wins to take a 2-1 lead heading into Game 4.

LaMarcus Aldridge struggled in the series opener, but he was great in Game 3, scoring 26 points with seven rebounds and four blocked shots. These teams played close gamed during the regular season, with three of the four decided by just a two point margin.

The bookmakers have made the Rockets a six point favorite on Sunday, and I like the Spurs plus the points. San Antonio has seized the momentum, and their defense was impressive holding Houston to just 36.4 percent shooting in the last game. T

he Rockets have failed to cover in seven of their last eight home games, and San Antonio has covered in four straight at Houston.

 

Spurs +5.5 to 6
