Even with the Spurs sitting near the bottom of the Western Conference, another streak looms large over the Bullets. It's that the Bullets have NOT WON IN SAN ANTONIO SINCE THE 1999-2000 SEASON. :dead:

The Bullets never have won at AT&T Center... that last win was at the AlamoDome! :mjlol:

Last Bullets win in San Antonio, Mitch Richmond had 31 points, Rod Strickland had 7 assists, and Tracey Murray dropped 15 off the bench to give the Bullets a 10 point win over the defending NBA Champion Spurs. Look at the box score: Wizards vs. Spurs, 99-89, Box Score - 2000 Regular Season.

I remember watching that game.

I think they've won once in San Antonio in like 35 years.

edit: looking at it, the Bullets/Wizards actually won a few times in San Antonio against the Spurs in the 90s. Even with prime Admiral.

Eh...they only play there once a year and the Spurs were perennial Finals contenders while the Wiz are always in the lottery
Yes but even still. You’d think in a long slog of seasons, they’d hunt one W. Esp with Arenas scoring so many points.

OP you think Wizards win tonight?

Odds makers have them favored by 3

Which is weird I'm pretty sure Vegas knows the

Matchup history in San Antonio

I wanna say they do but I saw the Vegas line and made the thread cause I was like :hubie:

And plus the Spurs have played a lot of close games and lost them at the end. The Wizards are a good clutch team so far... and deeper so, we'll see.

It feels like Vegas tryna trick people into thinking Spurs will lose this game. Spurs are decent at home and with that kind of history in this game it's like there tryna make people second guess why would Vegas give me plus money to bet the Spurs

Yup

Spurs have had double digit leads in 9 of their 18 games.

A team can’t possibly just never win a road game in 20+ years without luck finally swinging their way eventually. Especially when they’re off to their best start in forever. The streak has to end. With that said, Wiz are on a road trip and just won back to back nights and only one day off before this game which leads me to believe it will be a letdown game :skip:

Derrick White has been atrocious this year to
