Spurs melding into championship form

The defending NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs have been on a terror as of late winning 13 of their last 16 games, the past few of them against playoff contenders.  Whether on the road or at home, the Spurs just keep on winning.  The Memphis Grizzlies were their latest victim, taking a 103-89 whipping by the champs in San Antonio.  The team was lead by Kawhi Leonard’s 25 and 10.

“What Kawhi did today was incredible and it was fun to watch,” teammate Manu Ginobili said.

What Leonard “did” was use huge mismatches to get just about whatever shot he wanted.  Leonard went on to score 15 points in the 4th quarter on 6-7 shooting including a 3-pointer.

“We went to him and he went to himself,” head coach Gregg Popovich said. “It was little bit of both. He was rolling and he felt it.”

“I was getting the shots that I wanted,” Leonard said. “Guys were looking for me and they fell.”

The Spurs have today to rest up before taking on Dwayne Wade and the Miami Heat in Miami.  Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets still remain so be sure to get yours now and help cheer on your San Antonio Spurs in Miami!
