Spurs host Montepaschi Siena: Preseason Game Preview

Italy's Super Cup Champion seeks to wreck havok on the Spurs' homecourt

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

San Antonio Spurs vs Montepaschi Siena

AT&T Center
October 6, 7:30 pm

Montepaschi Siena is last year’s Italian League champion, also the Italian Super Cup champion, and the Italian Cup champion. Although they won many accolades last season they blew their team up and have an almost completely different roster. The coach is the same and appears to be still running his offense though his point guard first. Brown and Moss are the leading scorers on the team this season. The team as a whole is turnover prone which may be a result of their lack of team cohesiveness. This team is not afraid to shoot from long range and will drain the three ball when given half a chance. Their complete lack of defense except for Sanikidze, whom the Spurs own the rights to. He is pretty good on the defensive side, at least in Euroleague.
