We would like to help you see the San Antonio Spurs in person. The place we would recommend checking out for to get those hard to get tickets is: Prime Seat Tickets. Yes everyone likes to see a winning team, but going to the game is really more about “BEING THERE”. Did your parents ever take you to a live professional basketball game? Did you ever take your kids? You know there is nothing better than being there!
The San Antonio Spurs execution with two top players out was a sight to see and the stand-ins did an excellent job making use of rare minutes on the court. Corey Joseph, in for Parker, scored 18 points, dished five assists and collected four boards while Ginobili’s stand in, Marco Belinelli was 7-12 from the field and 4-6 from the three point line to tally 20 points, six assists and two rebounds.
“I think he is getting his rhythm,” San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said of Belinelli. “He didn’t come back in great shape. At this point, he is starting to feel pretty good. The injury held him up after he was trying to get into shape. He is just beginning to start the season really.”
The defending Champions Spurs (13-4) are on the road visiting the Brooklyn Nets (7-9) at the Barclays Center tonight. The Nets are coming off a 98-93 victory over the New York Knicks Tuesday evening. The Spurs are coming off a 109-103 victory over the winless Philadelphia 76er’s in which both Tim Duncan and Tony Parker did not play. The go to guy (and according to Coach Pop, he needs to play a bigger role) was Kawhi Leonard who notched his fourth 20 point game this season with 26 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and two steals.
“We’re trying to loosen up a bit and give him more of a green light,” San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said.
Former Spurs Assistant turned Philly head coach Brett Brown had his hands full trying to keep his former team down and were competitive for most of the game.
“The first half was not played with much energy,” Brown said. “I’ve seen it with our guys. We play the Spurs, we’re sort of star struck for a second. We had no juice, no energy.”
