The San Antonio Spurs, in the midst of their annual Rodeo Road Trip, are also in the midst of a three game losing streak that threatens to derail the normally useful Road Trip and turn it into the first losing Rodeo Road Trip ever.
In the game against the Utah Jazz last night, the Spurs (2-4 on the RRT) committed 22 turnovers in 90-81 loss. Jazz fans, who are beginning to believe in their own French phenom, Rudy Gobert, watched as their club jumped out to a 13-8 lead which quickly ballooned to 11 points highlighted by three Trey Burke buckets and a Gobert alley-oop.
“He’s a long drink of water. He changes shots, blocks shots he does a good job,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said of the 7″1″ Gobert.
Between today and Saturday, the Spurs still must face the Trailblazers, the Kings and the Suns.
