The big numberLet's go with 0.90 for this one. That's because both of these teams are very good spot-up shooting teams, and that's not surprising considering that this series features four of the most efficient spot-up NBA 2K18 MT Coins shooters in the league: Curry (1.33 points per possession) and Durant (1.26) for the Warriors, as well as Kawhi Leonard (1.24) and Gasol (1.27) for the Spurs.

In the playoffs, Draymond Green has scored 8.0 points per game on spot-up shots, most in the league, and the Spurs' Danny Green has been fourth with 5.1 points.The Spurs scored 25.7 points per game this season off spot-up shots, the most in the league, and also led the league in field-goal percentage on spot-up shots, at 42.5 percent. The Warriors were second in spot-up field-goal percentage, at 41.9. It's an offensive weapon both teams draw on heavily.

But the Warriors are the best team in the league at defending spot-up shooters, allowing just 0.90 points per possession, a reflection on the ability of their small-ball defenders to recover quickly to the perimeter and disrupt shooters. They led the league allowing only 35.0 percent shooting on spot-up shots, and their ability to close out on the likes of Green, Gasol and Leonard will determine whether San Antonio can muster the offense to stay in this series.

Spurs vs. Warriors pickAt full strength, the Warriors would have a challenge on their hands in this series of 2K MT. But with Parker now a scratch after a good start to the playoffs (15.9 points, 52.6 percent shooting) and uncertainty surrounding the status of Leonard's ankle, the Spurs' chances at an upset have gotten that much more remote.
