Who the Public Likes: As of Tuesday afternoon, 69 percent of public bets have been placed on the visiting Spurs.

Injury Report: Kawhi Leonard is expected to play tonight as he manages his quadriceps injury. Rudy Gay has a heel injury and is expected to miss a couple weeks. For the Knicks, Tim Hardaway Jr. has a stress injury to his lower left leg and is expected to be out until mid-January.

Who the Trends Like: The over is 6-2-1 in the last nine meetings. The under is 8-1 in the last nine San Antonio games played on two days of rest. The over is 5-1 in the last six New York games following a straight up win.

Who We Like: San Antonio lost 93-79 at Detroit three days ago in a game that was never very close following a rough first quarter. If anyone can get a team back up to task in no time, it is Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. Expect a focused effort from San Antonio tonight. The Spurs defeated the Knicks 119 107 on their home court last week and expect another dominant performance tonight. Unfortunately for New York, this is not the team you want to meet after it suffered a bad loss.
