The San Antonio Spurs continued their winning ways and upped their win streak to nine games. With wins over New York (109 – 83), Portland (108 – 103), and most recently the Golden State Warriors (111 – 105), the Spurs extended the NBA’s current longest win streak. The win against the Warriors moved the team to fifth place. But with each and every game played positioning can change with each win or loss. Golden State came into the game leading the Western Conference but with the loss they left being tied with the Denver Nuggets who got a major win on the road against the Celtics.
The season has been so unpredictable and on any given night positioning can change. You have to come and play to stay in contention. TheSpurs have been doing just that and holding serve on their home court. LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar DeRozan continue to be the one-two punch in leading the team. Aldridge is averaging 21 points, 9 rebounds, and one block this season while his counterpart DeRozan has averaged 21 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists per game. With guard Derrick White back in the lineup the Spurs defense has improved and the play of the bench (Rudy Gay, Patty Mills, Davis Bertans, and Marco Belinelli) providing quality minutes and scoring has been superb.
Note: The Spurs have won 11 straight games at the AT&T Center.
