The defending NBA Champion San Antonio Spurs have struggled this season with a rash of injuries to a number of players. Their 19-13 record is representative of that. They did get a boost when Guard Patty Mills returned to the floor in a 106-110 victory over the Houston Rockets Sunday evening. Mills had eight points, all in the final quarter of the game.
“His energy, just his activity it was contagious,” San Antonio forward Tim Duncan said. “It was great for us; brought a huge spark to the team.”
The Spurs annual Rodeo Road Trip may just be what the Spurs need as they have normally done well on the nine game excursion from the confines of the AT&T Center. the Rodeo Road Trip begins February 8th.
