It feels like a decade has passed since the Spurs gave Kevin Durant a rude welcome as a member of the Warriors, routing them in the first game of the 2016-17 season by 29 points. In that game, the Spurs scored 126.6 points per 100 possessions, and they grabbed 43.8 percent of the few misses they did have. It was utter domination. Now? We have no Kawhi Leonard, or many of his top teammates. Somehow, the Spurs opened as 11-point underdogs. We’re in uncharted territory.

Thankfully, we have The Action Network crew on duty and ready to break things down. Without further ado, here are five important things bettors and DFS players should know before tonight’s marquee matchup.
