The San Antonio Spurs are nothing if not consistent, so when you hear Spurs players from years long gone up until last night, telling you they don’t care about records, only championships, you pretty much have to take them at their word. So when the Spurs broke the NBA record for most consecutive home wins last night, they were conscious of the event, but could care less.
“I know it is something very hard to accomplish, but it shouldn’t take away anything if you go 40-1. It’s just one game,” Veteran Guard Manu Ginobili said. “Besides that, we are playing great and have had a great season so far, and we’ve got to keep building because the playoffs are a couple weeks away, and that’s when we want to be the best team we can be.”
“The only thing I see is that we can try and win a championship. I don’t really think about having a good regular season, how many games we won, Guard Tony Parker said. “It doesn’t matter, because at the end of the day, the only thing you remember is how many championships you won.”
And when Coach Popovich was asked what it meant to break the record:
“Absolutely nothing,” Popovich said. “Maybe a cup of coffee. Maybe.”
