Diaw says Spurs have room to improve, affirms he will play for France

One would think with a regular season record of 45-8, second place in the West, zero losses at home and riding a winning streak would be great for any NBA team… right?

Not for San Antonio Spurs’ Boris Diaw.

In an interview with French site Le Figaro, Diaw exclaimed the Spurs still have room for improvement and the eight losses still sting him.

We are quite pleased overall because we played well most of the time and did good things on the floor. We can always improve, that’s what we try to do every year – get better again and again throughout the season to be ready for the playoffs.

Yes, but we still lost eight games. We can always be better, but as long as we keep winning, that’s fine. About our game, there are times when it goes less well, we must address this.

Of course there are areas the team needs to improve on, such as lowering turnovers, getting healthy, and stepping up against the top teams. But leave it to a Spur to never be satisfied with great results.

As for suiting up for Team France this summer, Diaw stated clearly he will play and only an injury will keep him out of action.

The only thing that could prevent me from playing with the Blues this summer, is an injury. If I’m healthy, I will play for France, there is no doubt about it.

The Spurs are set to continue their annual Rodeo Road Trip tomorrow versus the Clippers and hopefully will gain ground on Golden State.
