The playoffs aren’t coming fast enough.
The Spurs are currently playing their worst basketball of the season. Three losses in a row for the first time this season. The injury bug is finally biting the Spurs and our lead in the standings is down to four with the schedule not gotting much easier.
The bright side? The losses have been by a combined 12 points to playoff teams. The injuries aren’t serious and giving key players some rest. The Spurs will not lose every game and the Lakers and Mavs will lose a game or two.
So if you asked every team in the league if they would trade places with the Spurs they would all say yes.
This part of the season sucks. All the analyst are loving watching the Spurs lose so they can say, we’re not going into the playoffs playing our best basketball like the best teams are supposed to. When in reality, the best teams turn it on when the playoffs start.
Tonight the Spurs won’t have Timmy or Manu so a win tonght won’t come easy. The bench needs to play big. In the three losses, Tiago has played very well except for foul trouble. I like his scoring ability and his hands.
Tiago has to stay on the floor tonight. Tiago has the ability to defend Aldridge. Turnovers have to be limited. If I see Aldridge spin off and get an alley-oop I will lose it. How do the Spurs not know about that move? PLEASE REBOUND tonight and I’m not talking about bouncing back, I’m talking about boxing out.
