Spurs drop first of four games to I-10 rival Rockets

With more than enough time to prepare for a post sans both Tiago Splitter and Tim Duncan, the Houston Rockets took full advantage and fed PF/C Dwight Howard to the tune of 32 points, 16 rebounds and two blocks.

“We looked at some stuff (on tape) and we got him in the post,” McHale said. “I thought (Howard) rolled hard and got some late at the rim. He was really devastating on those high passes. It’s important that he gets in a rhythm and plays. It doesn’t matter who is out there playing for them, he’s got to play well for us.”

The Spurs will have the opportunity to right the ship as they face the New Orleans Pelicans Saturday night.  Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours now!
