Week in Review
Week 21 handed the Spurs many tough moments, without enough bright spots. While Tony Parker gave the Spurs the push they needed to pull out the win Monday, the Spurs won by just two points. At the end of that game, the only starter who managed to score in double figures was Kyle Anderson.
The Spurs showed some cohesion and looked determined on Thursday as they put up a pretty good fight against the dreaded Golden State Warriors. Still, without the health and consistency they desperately need at this point of the season, the Spurs experienced a heart-wrenching loss in the final minutes of the game.
The Spurs, nearing the end of the season, currently sit in the 7th seed with a losing road record, their first since the season before drafting Tim Duncan.
The Spurs will face the top-seed Houston Rockets Monday night in Houston in the first game of a back-to-back. The second is against the Orlando Magic at home. Staying home for the next six games, the Spurs will then play the Pelicans Thursday, where they could reportedly have Kawhi Leonard back, and end the week against the Timberwolves Saturday.
