Spurs @ Magic Game Thread

New, comments

Wow, we're 65 games in and there's a team we still haven't faced yet this season. And this is a team that seems to be hitting their stride at just the right time, if you ignore the second half of their last game.

Sound familiar? Read on.

Also, get the view from the Magic fanbase at Orlando Pinstriped Post.

Our guys are also on a roll lately, but scared us when they almost lost a huge lead last night. Still, we've been on a pretty nice run lately. Let's ask a former Spur what he thinks of San Antonio's 8-1 record in its last 9 games.

Key to the Game

Perimeter Defense - Dwight is going to destroy us on the interior - that's a given. But, if you take away his help, the Magic are vulnerable. Crisp, decisive rotations and timely help defense - like we saw during most of last night's game against Miami - will be the key to whether or not the Spurs can put this one in the "W" column.
