The defending champion San Antonio Spurs, have been quietly taking care of business this year and, as the team always does, they have not cared to concern themselves with what every other team in the league was doing. Pundits, as they always do, counted them out again as a step slower, a year older and not able to sustain the high play they showed in the 2014 NBA Playoffs. Yet, the Spurs now find themselves in second place in the Western Conference with one final game against the New Orleans Pelicans left to play.
“We are just going to play the games,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “Wherever we end up, that’s what we’ll do. We can only control our game.”
In taking out the Phoenix Suns 107-91 yesterday afternoon, SG Danny Green set a new franchise record for made three pointers in a season once held by “The Rifleman” Chuck Pearson with 190. Green ended the game with 191 made three’s.
“Both unbelievably great shooters in their time,” Forward Tim Duncan said. “Danny is really coming into his own now. He is comfortable in his role and what he has to do and what he is allowed to do.”
