A victory over the Pacers tonight could leave the Spurs undefeated in March
The San Antonio Spurs defeated the New Orleans Pelicans Saturday night to collect their 17th straight victory. The Silver and Black have not lost in March and with a victory over the Indiana Pacers tonight will leave them undefeated in March.
While Head Coach Gregg Popovich is now looking for the next defeat, admitting he is waiting for the next defeat, his team is riding the wave with their familiar low key approach.
“It is sweet to be a part of that,” SG Manu Ginobili said. “It is not something that happens very often because it is a long spread of game, a month or two. Here or there you have a bad game or the opponent has a bad one, but a lot of things have combined for us to have this type of streak. We played really well and we are healthy.”
The Spurs must defeat the Indiana Pacers on the road if they want to go undefeated. The Pacers have dropped five of their last seven games and are now just one game ahead of the Miami Heat for the best in the East.
“We can’t figure out a way to perform better,” said center David West. “We’ve done what you do, we’ve had team meetings. We’ve had players-only meetings. We’ve had players and the coaches (meetings). We’re kind of looking for answers right now, and things don’t get any easier.”
