1. Will The Spurs’ Guards Rise To The Challenge?

Finally, San Antonio is going up against a team that is deep at the guard position. Malcolm Brogdon is a top-notch point guard who can drive, shoot, and make plays for his teammates. On the other hand, Victor Oladipo has been improving as previously noted and is a major threat.

Dejounte Murray and Bryn Forbes will have their hands full. Off the bench, Patty Mills and Marco Belinelli will need to step up as well against Aaron Holiday and T.J. McConnell. These matchups are going to be interesting to watch.

The Spurs need to focus on defense first with these matchups. If the guards don’t play up to their competition, San Antonio could be in some trouble.
