The San Antonio Spurs completed another successful Rodeo Road Trip finishing at 7-1 after handily beating the Houston Rockets 104-94. Now they look to keep their undefeated home record intact as they entertain the Detroit Pistons tonight at the AT&T Center.
“Our guys played well and stayed locked in the whole trip,” said LaMarcus Aldridge, who had 26 points and 16 rebounds against the Rockets. “I think everybody was motivated to finish the trip off right.”
The Spurs also made free agent news signing veteran guard Andre Miller and are still looking hard at Kevin Martin, who was recently released from his contract with Minnesota. In order to make room for Miller, guard Ray McCallum was waived. Head Coach Gregg Popovich joked about the signing of Miller.
“He’s gonna be terrible. That’s why we brought him in. He’s got no chance to fit in whatsoever. I can’t believe we did that,” coach Gregg Popovich quipped before continuing.
“His basketball IQ is off the charts,” he added. “What a pro, tough minded, disciplined and he’ll pick up things very quickly. He’s picked up already a lot. He’ll be fine.
