Playoff implications and a Finals preview highlight the Saturday slate 

March 12, 2022

Pacers at Spurs 

AT&T Center – San Antonio, TX 
8:00 PM ET 
San Antonio -5.5 

Indiana has lost 12 out of 15 and is going absolutely nowhere. Meanwhile, San Antonio remains in the race in the West, just one game back of New Orleans for the final spot in the play-in tournament. The Spurs have won two out of three, including a home win over Utah last night. Follow the trends. 

Jason Schlefsky’s pick: San Antonio -5.5 (-110) 

Bucks at Warriors 

Chase Center – San Francisco, CA 
8:30 PM ET 
Milwaukee -1.5 

In what could be a preview of the NBA Finals, the red-hot Bucks are the favorites on the road. That’s for good reason. They’ve won six games in a row and routed the Warriors by 19 the last time they played. Meanwhile, Golden State is still without Draymond Green, an absence that has hurt them since the All-Star break. 

Jason Schlefsky’s pick: Milwaukee M/L (-125)
