It looks like the San Antonio Spurs are beginning to come into championship form at about the right time. The Spurs, after falling to the lowly Knicks last Tuesday, the Spurs have reeled off three straight victories and none so impressive as yesterdays 114-95 victory over the playoff bound Atlanta Hawks. The road has not been kind to the Spurs this year and Point Guard Tony Parker is at a loss to explain just why.
“For whatever reason, we haven’t had the same rhythm like in years past,” said Parker. “It felt good to get one against a very good team. We had a good start, shot the ball well and ball movement was great again tonight,” Parker said. “It was one of those games where we played very well.”
The Spurs were led by Tiago Splitter (who hit 8 of his first 9 shots) who had a season high 23 points on 10-14 shooting.
