Week in Review
The Spurs won three out of four in week 23, swept their six-game homestand, and improved from 10th to 5th place after Friday’s win against the Jazz. The Spurs looked rejuvenated, determined to win and to make the playoffs. This intensity definitely paid off as they now sit in the 6th seed and are currently in playoff contention.
The Spurs have a tough road ahead as they face the Thunder and the Rockets this week. However, with the determined style of play they illustrated this past week, they’ve shown they will not give up so easily. The silver and black look poised to put up a fight in their race to the playoffs.
The success of the Spurs in the last few games has come thanks to significant and consistent help from at least one other player on the Spurs roster in support of LaMarcus Aldridge. The Spurs are currently Aldridge’s team and he’s being that go-to constant every team hopes for. With at least one other player scoring in the high teens or low twenties, the Spurs can comfortably put up a fight against any team, as long as they remember their potential.
This week the Spurs will face the Washington Wizards on Tuesday in Washington DC. Then, the silver and black will head back to San Antonio to match up against the Thunder on Thursday and the Houston Rockets on Easter Sunday. Considering they have played so comfortably at home as of late, the Spurs should feel some confidence against the Thunder and Rockets this week.
