Spurs close the season against the Warriors

Must face the  Jazz, Warriors and Nuggets on the road first

The San Antonio Spurs have nothing left to prove in the regular season so whether or not they put their A- game effort remains to be seen.  Keeping their home record at zero losses would seem to be the more important than going all out to win on the road.

Not that the team will not play at a high level, it could very well be the Spurs B team against the very same , especially against the Warriors, since they have given up a game at home now.  Records are really unimportant to the Spurs collective where the big prize is always the only goal.

“We don’t pay attention, nor are allowed to care,” San Antonio guard Danny Green said. “It’s fun to be a part of something big, or be a part of history or make history, but we’re looking at the bigger pictures.”

For the Spurs during the Popovich era, it has always been about the title, but even Tim Duncan hitting his 1000th victory with the teams next win is something to talk about.  He already owns the record for most victories with one team.

“He’s got a lot of miles on his body, and he still comes in day-in and day-out, first guy in the gym, last guy to leave,” Green said. “Same routine every day, lot of energy, great focus. It’s tough to do, and I don’t know how he continues to stay motivated playing 20 years and winning so many championships.”

Spurs dismiss Thunder, await Clippers

One of the San Antonio Spurs newest acquisitions, David West, sparked a 4th quarter comeback with three straight buckets to give the Spurs the lead for the first time since the 2nd quarter and eventually the win, their 41st consecutive at home, only the third team in league history to hit that mark.  The win also secured the Southwest Division for the Spurs and they officially clinched home court advantage in the ever important first round of the fast approaching playoffs.

“We’re a humble ballclub,” Forward Kawhi Leonard said. “We just want to get better as each game goes as the season goes on. So, it doesn’t matter who we’re playing. It’s just about us and are we going to execute, are we going to go out and have energy and play defense. We fought through the whole game tonight.”

Leonard had 26 points in the contest and was a focal point of the offense along with LaMarcus Aldridge, who had 24 points, nine rebounds and three assists, a far cry from his first time around against the Thunder.

“I didn’t know my role, I was trying to find shots,” Aldridge said. “I think I took (12) shots that game. So it was very uncomfortable. I thought tonight was night and day for sure.”

The next in line to take a shot at the Spurs home record are the LA Clippers, who are coming off a hard 114-90 loss to LeBron  James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.  They will be followed by the Blazers, the Warriors and the Miami Heat, all playoff bound teams.

“I think it’s important to be playing teams you’re probably going to be playing in the playoffs at some point,” Popovich said. “It’s kind of like a final exam in a way, where you still have time to improve some things.
