It looks like the San Antonio Spurs are beginning to come into championship form at about the right time. The Spurs, after falling to the lowly Knicks last Tuesday, the Spurs have reeled off three straight victories and none so impressive as yesterdays 114-95 victory over the playoff bound Atlanta Hawks. The road has not been kind to the Spurs this year and Point Guard Tony Parker is at a loss to explain just why.
“For whatever reason, we haven’t had the same rhythm like in years past,” said Parker. “It felt good to get one against a very good team. We had a good start, shot the ball well and ball movement was great again tonight,” Parker said. “It was one of those games where we played very well.”
The Spurs were led by Tiago Splitter (who hit 8 of his first 9 shots) who had a season high 23 points on 10-14 shooting.

In a night that the Spurs won their 6th game in a row, the celebration was not centered on the players. No, the players celebrated the 66th birthday of their head coach, Gregg Popovich after the game.
“He doesn’t like it (celebration); you’re going to get me in trouble,” PG Tony Parker said. “We sang for him, but yeah, he hates it. Yeah, it was after the game, the whole team sang to him.”
Parker sang during the game as well and helped the Spurs past a sluggish third quarter, scoring 17 points to get the Spurs past the Charlotte Hornets in a 95-86 victory.
“We went through a little dry spell in the third quarter,” Guard Danny Green said. “It seemed like there was a lid on the basket, but we kept moving, kept finding each other, and kept penetrating. Our defense is what kept us in the lead.”
The Spurs opponent talent level increases significantly as they prepare to host the Los Angeles Clippers this Saturday at 8. The Clippers are coming off a 94-89 victory over the Utah Jazz.

Daye, who totaled just over six minutes in the prior nine games, started against the Timberwolves and by the end of the game, finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds in a 108-93 victory.
“Pop believes in all his players and you know he’ll throw you into weird situations at any time, so you just got to be ready,” said Daye,”
