How things might unfold

The Spurs kept Jokic quiet by double-teaming him and sometimes even tripling him. Jokic scored only 4 points but still had ten assists in the game. Jokic is MVP material and is not a guy who will have back-to-back off nights. Also, guards on the perimeter had an off day and are expected to perform better at home tonight.

Spurs, on the other hand, have been excellent lately, but most of their wins have come at home. They are still not consistent on the road and might have a tough outing tonight.
