Spurs won't be in the giving spirit for Nets' visit

The Brooklyn Nets will carry a modicum of momentum and a modest one-game winning streak with them to San Antonio to play the Spurs on Saturday at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas. But don't expect the Spurs to be cordial hosts, even with the holidays looming.

San Antonio has struggled at home this season, going just 5-4. But Brooklyn hasn't won in Alamo City since George W. Bush's first year in office (and it's never won in the AT&T Center, which opened in October 2002), so the Nets understand the task at hand is a tall order.

The Spurs lost on the road for first time this season on Thursday, falling 95-91 at Chicago to snap a four-game overall winning streak in the process. San Antonio won its first 13 road games and could have tied Golden State's record of 14 straight (set last year) with a win over the Bulls. Not only did the Spurs not win in Chicago on Thursday, they never even led.
