San Antonio – Philadelphia

I’m watching the Spurs at Philadelphia.

Philadelphia is 0-16, and the Spurs are on a seven-game win streak. The Sixers are making an effort to stay in the game. I’m not sure about the Spurs, who are not playing Tim Duncan and Tony Parker after a game yesterday. Kawhi Leonard received extended rest tonight, and the Spurs bench has been out on the floor tonight. It’s an eight point game with 4 minutes left.

While San Antonio doesn’t particularly like a close game against a bad team, the Spurs don’t mind this. They are getting their bench playing time in a tough situation, which is what they need for later on in the season/playoffs.

The Spurs lead the Sixers by seven with just under 2 minutes to go. Did I say seven? I meant it’s a five point game, Sixers ball, 1:09 left.

The Spurs won, 109-103, and like Spurs Homervision says, it wasn’t pretty. In the end, the Sixers couldn’t make shots.

I’m not sure how much longer the Sixers fans can stand this. They know what the game plan is, to tank until they’ve assembled a team that can compete at the highest levels. But they are having to suffer through this time period … with no guarantee of success after the intentional tank is over. I’d be hard pressed to justify my season tickets if I was Sixers fan.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
