Last night’s matchup was disappointing to say the least. Frustrating might be more exact. But it is tough to play the SEGABABA on the road. Tough to win in Los Angeles. Tough to beat LeBron on a run. And in the Spurs defense, they went from playing the second seed in the Western Conference to play the first.
But the Spurs have historically played well on their annual Rode Road Trip.
Best records in February since 1997:— Jordan Howenstine (@AirlessJordan) February 3, 2020
1. SPURS - 170-92 - 64.9%
2. Rockets - 168-104 - 61.8%
3. Jazz - 166-106 - 61.0%
Over two-thirds of San Antonio’s February games have been on the road (more than any other team) due to the Rodeo Road Trip.
That said, this is not your normal Spurs season. And the Silver & Black have a lot of traditions riding on this season.
As mentioned, the Spurs will not be represented in this month’s All-Star Game for only the third time in franchise history.
If the Spurs don’t make the playoffs this season, they will end a twenty-two season run that currently is tied for the most consecutive playoff appearances with Syracuse Nationals /Philadelphia 76ers whose twenty-two season run from the 1949–50 season to the 1970–71 season.
But it all gets figured out one game at a time. For now, the Spurs are 0-2 on this 2020 Rodeo Road Trip. Can they turn it around?
The game against the Clippers was winnable and really got away from them in the last two minutes. Last night, no one was stopping a white hot LeBron as he made five straight threes in the opening minutes of the final frame.
What do you think, Pounders? Are the Spurs able to pull off a winning run out of the remaining games while they are away from home?
