It will also be a return home for former San Antonio Spurs Assistant General Manager Sam Presti, who is now the Thunder’s General Manager.
With the Spurs impressive start to the season and their 46-10 record, Presti spoke on his former team and their league-leading record.
“One thing that’s probably surprising to most people is this is just about the time right now where they really start to pick up momentum. … They’re notoriously kind of slow starters, but they kind of came out of the gates clicking. I think they’re a great example. They’ve been together for quite a while, they’ve gone through a lot of ups and downs.” (sportsradiointerviews.com)
Presti’s Thunder, which include All-Stars Kevin Durant and Russel Westbrook, will try to narrow the 9.5 game gap between the teams with a win on the road tonight. The game tips at 6 p.m. CST.
