Spurs remain undefeated on the road
The San Antonio Spurs (15-4, 1st Southwest Division) defeated their I-35 rival Dallas Mavericks (3-14, 4th Southwest Division) last night in Big D with a convincing 94-87 win, to remain undefeated on the road in 2016. The Spurs were led by Patti Mills’ 23 points, 15 of which came in the 4th quarter.
The win was not a sure thing as the Spurs prevailed through a seven minute 13-possession stretch where they were held scoreless.
”We dug down deep, didn’t moan or groan or whine, stuck with it and kept pounding away and found a way to win,” Head Coach Gregg Popovich said.
”We struggled majority of the game,” Mills said. ”But we knew that it was all going to come down to defense. We needed to get stops and that would create our flow a little bit better. I thought we did that down the stretch of the game.”
The Spurs get a day of rest before taking on the visiting Washington Wizards (6-11, 4th Southeast Division) who are coming off a 126-115 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder last night and the Spurs beat them in Washington last Saturday 112-100.

Pistons could be what the Doctor ordered
While it is never good to count on a sure thing, the San Antonio Spurs (5-3, 5th Western Conference) are hoping to bounce back against the Detroit Pistons (4-4, 6th Eastern Conference) tomorrow night at the AT&T Center where they have dropped three straight games, including last nights 101-99 loss to the Houston Rockets.
Nothing that 48 Minutes of Defense can’t help
“We gave up 63 in the first half and 38 points in the second half,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “That’s what we’ve been doing here at home: play a quarter or two of defense and a quarter or two of no defense. The consistency, in that regard, has not been good.”
The Pistons are having problems of their own and have yet to win a road game this season. This could be just what the doctor ordered.
“(It’s about) just making sure that we’re competing on the defensive end, that we’re in right spots on offense,” Kawhi Leonard said. “This is my sixth year. We’ve had stretches where we played badly before. You always can turn it around.”
