We are past the midway point of the season, and the Spurs are starting to find themselves amidst a difficult stretch of schedule. They’ve inched back into the 8th seed of the West, are starting to win on the road even in hostile environments, and have played well against the top of the East, going 4-2 against the four upper seeds in January.
One of those wins was in Tornoto at the home of the defending champs, and on Sunday January 26, the Spurs will get the chance to take on the Raptors again, this time at the AT&T Center, while looking to complete the season sweep. That’s at least a little bit of revenge, right? Even more so than this:
Many probably also remember when the Raptors visited San Antonio last year. It was one of the most fun and satisfying wins of the season. While this game doesn’t quite carry the same meaning from a symbolic standpoint, it’s just as important for the Spurs’ playoff aspirations, especially as the gauntlet of a Rodeo Road Trip schedule begins looming large a week later.
If you need any more reason to consider going, tip-off is at a nice, family-friendly time of 3:00 PM CT. If you’re interesting in seeing this game in person, Stub Hub has some great deals for you, which you can check out by clicking here. Will you be there?
