Marc Lawrence — From the 2021 Playbook NBA Newsletter: We’re back and riding Greg Popovich’s back in another underdog role with the San Antonio Spurs tonight as we near the finish line to the 2020-21 season.
Why not, with the Nets returning home tonight after a revenge tussle with the Bulls in the Windy City last night – with yet another Bulls battle on tap here on Friday night – while standing just 3-9 ATS at home without rest, including 0-5 ATS when facing non-conference opposition.
And then there is Popovich who, simply put, is the best NBA coach when it comes to avenging a non-conference loss. That’s evidenced by his long-term 150-78 SU and 133-90-4 ATS career record with the Spurs in these contests.
Pop-open a cold one and enjoy the game.
