Celtics have dropped last two games.
The Boston Celtics fell to the Oklahoma City Thunder last night and they will get a day of rest before taking on the San Antonio Spurs Wednesday night even though Russell Westbrook’s triple double streak came to an end.
Now the Celtics come to San Antonio and the AT&T Center where the Spurs are trying to improve their home win/loss record, which now stands at 6-4–compared to their 13-1 road record. The Spurs will have one less talent to deal with as Isaiah Thomas Jr is not expected to play and will miss his fourth straight game due to a groin injury.

Spurs remain undefeated on the road
The San Antonio Spurs (15-4, 1st Southwest Division) defeated their I-35 rival Dallas Mavericks (3-14, 4th Southwest Division) last night in Big D with a convincing 94-87 win, to remain undefeated on the road in 2016. The Spurs were led by Patti Mills’ 23 points, 15 of which came in the 4th quarter.
The win was not a sure thing as the Spurs prevailed through a seven minute 13-possession stretch where they were held scoreless.
”We dug down deep, didn’t moan or groan or whine, stuck with it and kept pounding away and found a way to win,” Head Coach Gregg Popovich said.
”We struggled majority of the game,” Mills said. ”But we knew that it was all going to come down to defense. We needed to get stops and that would create our flow a little bit better. I thought we did that down the stretch of the game.”
The Spurs get a day of rest before taking on the visiting Washington Wizards (6-11, 4th Southeast Division) who are coming off a 126-115 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder last night and the Spurs beat them in Washington last Saturday 112-100.

Season home Finale against another top Western Conference Team
The San Antonio Spurs will attempt to become only the second team in NBA History to lose one home game in a season against a team that they will likely meet in the second round of the NBA Playoffs.
The Spurs, who lost twice to the Pacers in the past five days, hope to bounce back against the Thunder tonight. The Thunder opened the season against the Spurs with a 114-106 win. Fast forward 160 plus days and both the Spurs and Thunder are locked into their playoff seeding. So the game itself is of little consequence, except to the Spurs fans who want that 40-1 home record.
So be there tonight to cheer on your San Antonio Spurs and help them celebrate the fantastic season and help usher in the first round of the NBA Playoffs! Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so get yours today~!
