A look at the schedule

These are the Spurs next 10 opponents. 7 Home 3 Road

 

Dec 20 vs Raptors

Dec 22 vs Kings

Dec 23 vs Timberwolves

Dec 25 @ Suns

Dec 27 vs Grizzlies

Dec 30 vs Bucks

Jan 02 @ Grizzlies

Jan 03 vs 76ers

Jan 05 @ Miami

Jan 08 vs LA Clippers

 

This is about as easy as it gets. The Christmas game vs Phoenix is our only above .500. Along with the Raptors they are the only team that made the playoffs last season.  The Heat are at .500 and could be above the mark by January 5th. Or not.

4 of those teams already fired their coaches.

The back to backs include Kings/T-Wolves a rare home/home game. A week later we're at Grizzlies then home to the Sixers. Nothing crazy like the Hornets/Magic roadies we just went through.

For the second time we take on the Grizzlies twice within a week. Last time we took both games convincingly enough.

Combined these teams winning percentage is .369. Spurs is currently at .600

The Suns game is the only one on National TV. Unless you count NBATV and I don't.

Is too farfetch'd to think we can go 9-1, 8-2 maybe even 10-0. Not really. So far beating up on bad teams has been working out for us. Its getting a win over the decent teams thats killing the Spurs.
