Spurscast 347: Checking it Twice…

Happy Holidays to you and yours! Have you been good this year? The San Antonio Spurs have… sorta. San Antonio, currently sitting at 17-9, is still reeling from their fourth loss within their previous six games. Some healthy players would be great but the Spurs better hope Santa delivers on some much needed passion.

The remainder of the 2014 schedule for San Antonio is a gauntlet of doom. The next eight teams feature seven currently seeded for the Western Conference playoffs. That other team is the surging Oklahoma City Thunder. On top of that, the Dallas Mavericks just traded for Rajon Rando (Spurs and Mavericks meet on December 20th).

Hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) also look back at the wild finish between the Spurs and the visiting Memphis Grizzlies plus the insanity that is the Western Conference. Guest Benjamin Bornstein (@THE_BOOMSTEIN) of Project Spurs joins the fun.

It’s the one and only Spurscast The original San Antonio Spurs Podcast.
