The San Antonio Spurs have won their third straight game over the New York Knicks, 94-84 at Madison Square Garden but the significance of the game is one for the record books. Spurs stalwart Tim Duncan posted team and NBA records on this night. Duncan set the record for most wins with a single team, eclipsing John Stockton’s 953 and looks to extend that record another 60 or more games this season, which should put it out of reach for a considerable time what with NBA players switching teams every two to four years. Duncan will be breaking his own record every time he steps on the floor.
Thus far this year, Duncan has passed Alex English to move into 16th place All Time scoring, moved into 8th in Career Rebounding passing Nate Thurmond then two days later passed Patrick Ewing to move into 6th place career blocks. He passed Moses Malone in April to move into 11th place NBA All Time career games and moved into 14th place passing Kevin Garnett in the NBA All Time Scoring list.
The Spurs take on the Wizards tomorrow night before heading back to the Alamo City for a game against the Charlotte Hornets. Tickets for both games are still available so be sure to get out and support your Spurs either on the road or at home!
While the regular season schedule has yet to be released by the NBA, some dates are leaking out to include the San Antonio Spurs season opener per the Oklahoman.
Plenty of regular season tickets are available for all preseason and regular season games. Be sure to get yours today and cheer on your San Antonio Spurs.
Of the past seven games the Spurs have won, five were against playoff contenders and one was the league leading Golden State Warriors who brought with them the best defense in the NBA only it wasn’t last night. Kawhi Leonard had his way with the Warriors, and after Coach Pop put him on Stephen Curry, who reeled off 13 straight points, Curry didn’t score again.
“Kawhi was phenomenal, he was the best player on the floor,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “It was Kawhi’s night.”
“He’s playing with more patience. He knows the shots are going to come, so he doesn’t have to force and keep looking for his moment. We’re not dumb. We’re going to look for him. We need him to score like that. He understands that now,” Spurs Guard Manu Ginobili told ESPN’s Michael Wallace.
The Spurs are jelling at the perfect time and the game against the Warriors put the rest of the NBA on notice as they handed the East leading Warriors their worst loss of the season.
The Spurs hit the road to visit the Oklahoma City Thunder tomorrow night. The Thunder have lost five of their last six games with their last victory coming against the Phoenix Suns on March 29th.
