San Antonio Spurs: Predicting week 5 results featuring superstar guards

The San Antonio Spurs return to the west coast for two games before hosting Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks to wrap up their week.

My prediction record has gone like the San Antonio Spurs‘ season so far: up and down with no discernable pattern. After going 1-3 two weeks ago, I saved my record with a 3-1 week, including somehow correctly predicting the Rockets’ unlikely victory in San Antonio. As the Spurs look to face three superstar guards this week, the tough task will be determining which version of the team we’ll see each night.

The Spurs have been consistently inconsistent this season, boasting huge wins over the LA Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers before suffering losses to the short-handed Timberwolves and Rockets. The only constant so far has been that the Silver and Black have played up or down according to their competition level.

In some good news, the team has shown they can still win without having lights-out nights from the outside. The Spurs haven’t shot above 29 percent from deep in their last four games but still won two of them.

So far, San Antonio has been shooting better from beyond the arc than at home, sinking 37.8 percent compared to 34.3 at home. While it’s good to know they don’t live or die by the three, it’ll still be crucial in this week’s two-game road trip.

Here are my predictions for how the Spurs will fare this week.
