Such an unpredictable season!!! Just as the Spurs were playing as well as anyone in the NBA and briefly tying the Golden State Warriors for the best record in the NBA, they hit a roadblock… losing three of the previous 10 games.
After back to back losses against Portland at home and the Grizzlies on the road, the Spurs picked up a much needed win against the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night. Leading scorer Kawhi Leonard had an off night scoring only 12 points but Pau Gasol and Tony Parker picked up the slack to help the team defeat the Kings.
The win put the team two games behind the Warriors in the loss column. With 13 games remaining on the schedule, chances of the Spurs overtaking their West Coast rivals will be challenging.
The Spurs have a tougher schedule but will have 8 of the remaining 13 games at home.
All but two teams on the schedule are looking at playoff positioning.
Note: Aldridge returned to the lineup against his former team but DeJounte Murray remains sidelined with an injury.
