Game Preview: San Antonio Spurs at Oklahoma City Thunder

Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports The Spurs will look to snap an eight-game losing streak against a fellow Western Conference basement dweller. It’s been a rough stretch for the Spurs. A team that started off the season winning five of its first seven games has only emerged victorious once in the last 14 matchups. Worse yet, the losses have not been particularly close, as the team has struggled on both ends while battling injuries. The game against the Thunder offers San Antonio an opportunity to get back on track, as they face an opponent with a losing record. Despite...

Who you got for all the marbles: Steph or Luka? A spicy Tuesday doubleheader
