Spurscast #269: The Second Unit

On this episode of the Spurscast, Project Spurs staff writer Trevor Zickgraf joins us to talk about last night’s overtime loss to the Dallas Mavericks.

Aside from breaking down the game, we all had issue with Matt Bonner receiving the inbounds pass on the possession that could’ve lead to a San Antonio Spurs win.

After giving the game a thorough review, we talked about the Spurs’ second unit, mostly consisting of Danny Green, Gary Neal and Tiago Splitter with a few other pieces moving in and out. Last night’s second unit, which also included James Anderson and Bonner, was the reason for the Spurs’ comeback and also the group Spurs coach Gregg Popovich elected to keep on the floor throughout the overtime period.

After taking a quick look at some of the above-mentioned players, we finished the show out talking about two bigs that could possibly come to the Spurs and help them where they need it the most. As we reported last week, the Spurs are pursuing Kenyon Martin and are interested in Chris Kaman, who the Hornets are looking to move.
