The Brooklyn Nets look to end a 15-game losing streak at AT&T Center when they visit the San Antonio Spurs Thursday night. Here’s how to watch the game.

A rivalry that dates back to the beginning of each franchise in the old American Basketball Association renews Thursday night when the Brooklyn Nets face the San Antonio Spurs at AT&T Center in San Antonio.

The Nets (28-24) come in with seven wins in their last eight games, including a 122-117 victory over the Chicago Bulls at home on Tuesday night.

The Spurs (30-22) have won their last three games, most recently taking a 126-124 decision at home from the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday.

More from Nothin' But Nets

Brooklyn bounced back from a slow start to beat the Bulls, taking the lead for good with 5:34 remaining in the third quarter and allowing Chicago to get no closer than three points the rest of the way,

D’Angelo Russell scored 24 of his game-high 30 points in the second half for the Nets, while adding seven assists and three steals, and Shabazz Napier added 24 points and three thefts off the bench. Jarrett Allen had eight rebounds for Brooklyn.

Rudy Gay made a winner of San Antonio Tuesday when he drained a 21-foot pull-up jumper as time expired after the Suns had come back from six points down with 2:49 to go to tie the game on Josh Jackson‘s dunk with 19.6 seconds to go.

LaMarcus Aldridge led the Spurs with 29 points and 13 rebounds, while Gay finished with 16 points and five assists. Davis Bertans added 18 points, five dimes and four steals, Patty Mills had 12 points and five assists and Marco Belinelli dropped in 17 points to go with five assists.

The rivalry has been very one-sided since the Nets and Spurs entered the NBA as part of the merger with the ABA in 1976, as the Nets are just 21-70 against San Antonio, including losses in the last six meetings.

The Spurs have a 14-game winning streak that is the longest in the series, putting that run together from March 6, 2003, to Jan. 10, 2010. The Nets have twice won three straight against the Spurs, most recently from Jan. 14-Nov. 13, 2002.

In the ABA, the teams were 33-33, although the Nets were 17-11 against the Spurs after that club left Dallas for San Antonio in 1973.

George Gervin has the highest-scoring individual game in the series since it moved to the NBA, dropping 47 points for the Spurs in a win at San Antonio on Jan. 29, 1985. Vince Carter scored 43 points for the Nets in a Feb. 11, 2005, loss at East Rutherford.

Since moving to Brooklyn in 2012, the Nets are just 2-10 against the Spurs, whose current six-game winning streak is the longest in that span. Brooklyn has not won consecutive games against the Spurs since the move.

San Antonio set the team scoring mark with a 130-101 win at home on Dec. 10, 2016. Brooklyn’s high game was a 103-89 win at Barclays Center on Feb. 6, 2014, that is also their largest margin of victory against the Spurs in the Brooklyn era.
