The Rode Road Trip was semi-successful and Allstar weekend has passed so what will the Spurs do from here on out? I expect the Spurs defense to improve more and more but the defense has to show in the bigger matchups.
2 games with Miami, Portland and the Lakers and one more against Boston and Dallas. Those are the games they need to focus on. I don’t see the Spurs going on another tear like earlier in the season but I see them playing better in the big games.
The offense should improve once James Anderson gets back into game shape but I wouldn’t mind the Spurs making a small move to get a little stronger wether it’s a trade or signing someone that gets bought out. More depth wouldn’t be a bad thing. An athletic defensive stopper would be nice.
Tonight the Spurs are home finally, to take on the Thunder.
Durant will see double teams coming from all over the place.
The Spurs should do a better job on Ibaka after he went off on them in the last meeting. If the Spurs do those things and keep Westbrook out of the paint, then they should come away with a victory.
