There’s Something Happening Here

Tonight, the Spurs pummeled the Orlando Magic 103-91, sweeping a two game back to back road trip. The game was done early in he 3rd quarter. The San Antonio Spurs are surging. How’s that, BSP? The Spurs have won 9 of their last 12 games. That only tells part of the story:

– the three games San Antonio lost were by a combined 14 points. San Antonio is 17 points away from a 12-game winning streak.

– the nine games San Antonio won, they won them by double digits

Tim Suncan played 12 minutes. Tony Parker played 22. Kawhi Leonard played 20 and Manu played 17. Cory Joseph led the team with 26 minutes. Boris Diaw scored 11 points. Whenever Boris Diaw is going well, the Spurs are going to be tough.

The Spurs have won 49 games this year. If they win 50, they will have won that many for 16 straight seasons, including a strike-shortened season. 

If I were the rest of the Western Conference, I’d be concerned. This is not good news. BSP suspects the Spurs are not going to be an easy knockout in the playoffs.

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.
