The Spurs did what they had to do on Friday night, putting the game away early against the Washington Wizards. Today, they face the Cleveland Cavs, who they defeated 10 days ago by six points in a game that was pretty close throughout. The Spurs need this win if they want to have a chance to catch the Los Angeles Clippers and/or the Oklahoma Thunder for the sixth or seventh spot in the Western Conference standing. A loss would almost guarantee the eighth slot, and a matchup with the Golden State Warriors. It’s an early tipoff, and the Spurs have typically not started fast in these afternoon games. Hopefully Pop has them ready today, and they can have a good outing like they did on Friday night. The regular season wraps up on Wednesday against the Dallas Mavericks in the AT&T Center. Go Spurs GO!
