The 2014-2015 season for the San Antonio Spurs has been one of narratives. At first it was the question of effort and then it was the plague of injuries that essentially left Tim Duncan by his lonesome. The start of the new year was focused on chemistry and then whether or not Tony Parker was ready to be put out to pasture. And though the Spurs have recently churned out some incredible games, the new topic now is centered around the notion of consistency – or rather the lack thereof. With only eleven games remaining in the regular season, are the wild spikes of performances here to stay or is there another narrative around the corner?
The San Antonio Spurs have won eight of their last ten games but still find themselves near the tail end of the playoff pack. With only fifteen games left in the regular season, the window to gain ground in the standings is closing quickly. Nights like the New York Knicks debacle are no longer affordable losses.
The San Antonio Spurs six game winning streak comes in large part due to the resurgence of both Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard. The duo have averaged 47 combined points over the past four games, rekindling some of their fellow struggling teammates along the way. Just a week ago, many fans had either smashed the panic button or were preparing to do so. Is it too early now to say the Spurs season has finally turned the corner? Can Tony Parker sustain his current level of play or will health concerns rear its ugly head again?
AT&T CENTER — The San Antonio Spurs (39-23) push their winning streak to five with an impressive performance against the gritty Chicago Bulls (39-25). Chicago may have been without Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson, and Jimmy Butler but their vaunted front court was still an incredibly difficult obstacle for San Antonio. The last time these two teams met, Pau Gasol’s 12 points, 17 rebounds, and 2 blocks led the Bulls in a complete route of the Spurs. This time around, Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard put on the dominating performance.
In the Tim Duncan era, the San Antonio Spurs have only had six losing streak of four games or more. Two of those losing streaks have occurred this season. Despite carrying a supposedly healthy roster, the Spurs have failed to get their season out of the mud. This season’s Rodeo Road Trip will be the first ever to finish with a losing record. Sitting at 34-23, the Spurs are more likely to fall out of the playoff race than they are to snatch a higher seeding. With two-thirds of the season now in the books, is it time to smash the panic button on the Spurs?
The long Rodeo Road Trip continues tonight for the San Antonio Spurs with a stop in Los Angeles to take on the Blake Griffin-less Clippers.

Even with the NBA finally be back in action tonight, most of the basketball-world will still be processing the rumors and news leading up to today’s trade deadline at 3:00 PM (EST).
According to ESPN’s Brian Windhorst, Ray Allen will finally make his decision on which NBA team to make a post-season run with.

AT&T Center – The last time the Miami Heat were in San Antonio, black and silver confetti rained down from the rafters.

The 13th Annual Road Trip kicks-off this Sunday with the opening game taking place in the maple syrup Valhalla more commonly known as Toronto. The San Antonio Spurs boast an impressive record since the installation of the Rodeo Road Trip, amassing 71 wins out of the 100 games played to date. With the championship hangover still lingering, do the Spurs need their home court sabbatical more than ever?
The race for Western Conference Playoff seeding is heating up. The San Antonio Spurs have won eight of their last ten games and are now only four games back from the second-seeded Memphis Grizzlies.

AT&T CENTER – It wasn’t the prettiest of double-digit victories, but the San Antonio Spurs got back on the winning track after handling a lifeless and Kobe-less Los Angeles Lakers, 99-85.

According to Yahoo Sports, Kawhi Leonard should return to the Spurs lineup sometime over the next few weeks. Kawhi has been nursing a torn ligament in his shooting hand, originally labelled as a bruised hand, over the past month. San Antonio has been chaotic during Leonard’s absence and will need their 2014 NBA Finals MVP to help regain lost ground in the Western Conference standings.
