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.
