Spurs become the Best team in NBA History

The San Antonio Spurs have done it quietly, like they do all things Spurs, but have achieved NBA greatness.  With the recent struggles of the Los Angeles Lakers, the Spurs have become the team with the highest winning percentage.  With a percentage of .610, the Spurs have won two out of every three games over the last 15 years.

The Spurs hope to add to that percentage when they face the Sacramento Kings tomorrow night, their first game back from their mostly unsuccessful Rodeo Road Trip.  Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets still remain so be sure to get yours today and help cheer on your Defending NBA Champions!



Spurs streak ends at 19

February 21st thru April 3rd of 2014 will go down as the (one of the) fifth longest streaks in NBA History.  Come April 6th, it will be back to business for Gregg Popovich and his crew of merry grey beards.

“We never thought about the streak in the first place,” Popovich said after the loss to Oklahoma.  “To us, it is just another game.”

Such is the way it has been for many a season here in San Antonio for the Spurs and their fans.  Always the underdogs, no matter the record the team is currently sporting, the Spurs take their wins just like their losses; with zero complaint and zero fanfare.

“To us, it is just another game.”

A lot of coaches will tell you that but when Popovich says it, you take it at face value and accept it.  This loss, which Popovich has been waiting for, is perfectly timed out in the big scheme of things.  Losing to an athletic Thunder team on the 2nd night of a back to back, well the planets were aligned.  Rest assured that, should the Thunder and Spurs meet in the playoffs, they will play One game at a time…just like the well oiled machine they are.

“To us, it is just another game.”

The Spurs take on the Memphis Grizzlies this Sunday.  Great seats are still available so be sure to get your tickets now!

Spurs’ Ginobili worried “We’re not ready”

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!
