officially this is a TWolves home game, but aren't Mexicans more likely to be Spurs fans?

also keep in mind, the altitude at this place is higher than any NBA venue.  Nuggets home is the highest, Wolves Spurs playing in place that is 7000 feets above sea level

how will this impact the way you cap totals? or the spread?

Cheers

You lost me at "feets". LOL! So who listens to a guy who doesnt even know the plural form of foot?

Both teams wth ugly ATS record. Somehow equal in that department, But the Spurs will probably make the necessary adjustments to improve and snatch that top spot in the West. Wolves with the young guys will just enjoy this game and may have that vacation feel. Talented Spurs with Pop may be too much for them. Mexican crowd may even cheer for the Texan team. I like taking the Spurs spread. Good luck!

Normally veteran experience over youth and speed always wins. I'm hesitant just because how good this Minnesota team is. This will be a great game but in the end I gotta go with the Spurs. The spotlight has been where San Antonio been for years, but look out this young energetic Timberwolfves team will get better and better. 


                                SAN ANTONIO SPURS!!!

Tim Duncan has rejuvenated in the last games with his big 20-20 performance. And after a minor ankle injury Parker scored 42 in his last two games. Kevin Love is still double-doubling but he isn't that explosive offensively; especially from downtwon in his last game. MIN needs a team effort both offensively and defensively to beat the a  Spurs team playing better after Tony Parker's return to the lineup.
The Wolves lost 4 of 5 and and I don't expect them to fix their issues versus this Spurs team.

My pick: Spurs -4,5
