The San Antonio Spurs are a five-point underdog heading into Game 3 against Memphis
The San Antonio Spurs are heading into their Game 3 matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies with a dominant 2-0 lead, but also have to carry the demons from last year’s playoff collapse against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Every year the Spurs are faced with the question of whether or not they are too old to win another championship—it has been 14 years since Tim Duncan’s first in 1999. And the criticism has only become louder as the team faded against the Thunder after dominantly winning the first two games.
San Antonio has all the experience and talent in the world to make another championship run, but can their creaky legs take them there? The Grizzlies has been dominant at home during the playoffs and are expecting to win two games in Memphis—which does not bode well for the Spurs, because the longer the series goes, the more it favors the Grizzlies. Let’s take a look at the Game 3 lines and the series price for this matchup heading into Game 3
Grizzlies: -5.5, Moneyline: -240
Spurs: +5.5, Moneyline: +200
