If the call had come from the usual pundits, then not much stock would be put into those words but the fact that it came from 3 time NBA Champion Manu Ginobili about his own team, lends credence of the statement.
The Spurs are a worrying 1-7 against the elite teams of the NBA including the Trailblazers (twice), the Thunder, the Rockets and the Pacers. The only win came against the LA Clippers who were without the services of All Star point guard Chris Paul.
“When it happens the first three times, four times, five times,” Ginobili said, “then you say, ‘Okay, things happen. The schedule and…’ Now it’s eight (losses), so there has to be a tendency now.”
The Spurs have a chance to add a victory against a top tier team in Oklahoma City this Wednesday. Great tickets are still available!
