Spurs 9-game streak began and ended with Hornets
The San Antonio Spurs said all the right things before Monday nights game at the New Orleans Arena; IE that this is a dangerous team and you must play a complete game against them. Well, the Spurs seemed to have forgotten that as the 4th quarter rolled around.
Head Coach Monty Williams praised his team and especially their defense after the game.
“To hold this team to 88 points is a great sign for our defense,” coach Williams said. “Confidence, to me, comes when you defend the right way, and I thought we did that tonight.”
Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich could do nothing but agree with his former player turned head coach.
“We played a well-coached aggressive, well-executing team,” San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. “They did a great job at both ends of the court. They just whipped us.”
The Spurs next face the slumping LA Lakers Wednesday at 8 pm.
