San Antonio -190
ANALYSIS: When I first looked at the NBA odds this morning, I wanted no part of the Spurs in the second of a back-to-back and after playing without Dejounte Murray, Jakob Poeltl and Doug McDermott in Thursday's blowout loss to Miami. I presumed they would all miss this game, but now they are probable. Not only that, but reserve big man Keita Bates-Diop will come out of protocols and Zach Collins will make his season and team debut. The 10th pick of the 2017 draft by Portland, Collins hasn’t played in an NBA game since getting 17 minutes for Portland vs. Brooklyn in the Orlando bubble on Aug. 13, 2020. Collins did look very good in four G-League games recently while preparing for his NBA return. The former Gonzaga star has talent but simply terrible injury luck.
