San Antonio is clinging to a one-game lead over Oklahoma City for the top spot in the Western Conference, but reeling a bit with a 2-3 record both straight-up and against the spread in its last five outings.

The Spurs snapped a rare two-game skid with a lopsided 98-84 romp over Orlando on Wednesday night as 12.5-point home favorites. They are now 7-3 straight-up in their last 10 games but a costly 3-7 against the spread. The total has stayed UNDER in five of their last six games.

They are 30-33 SU overall but a profitable 37-26 against the spread.
By virtue of a five-game winning streak that includes a 91-79 rout of Boston this past Sunday as an 11-point home favorite, Oklahoma City can tie the Spurs for the top spot in the Western Conference with a win on Monday night.

Chicago is tied with Brooklyn for fourth-place in the Eastern Conference standings, but it will have a hard time staying there if it does not improve upon a 6-9 SU record in its last 15 games. The Bulls are now 34-26 straight-up overall and 27-33 against the spread this season. They remain one of the best road teams in the NBA at 17-12 SU and are a profitable 18-11 ATS.
