It’s time for San Antonio Spurs vs Los Angeles Lakers

The Spurs face the Lakers again, but this time wearing the Teal, Orange and Pink Fiesta Jerseys

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at San Antonio Spurs Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to the Game Thread. Veterans of the Game Thread know how we do things around here, but for all you newbies we have a few rules. Our community guidelines apply and basically say be cool, no personal attacks, don’t troll and don’t swear too much.

On Tuesday night, the Spurs played their last game of 2020, and like many other aspects of that year, it was less than optimal, although it and a good birthday night for LeBron James. I even got into the spirit, because I incorrectly put into the game thread that the Spurs would be wearing Fiesta Jerseys, but my information was incorrect. Well, this time, it’s for real, the Spurs will be wearing the lucky Teal, Orange, and Pink, and that’s all the reason we should expect a win over the NBA champion Los Angeles Lakers. That and the return of Derrick White to the lineup.

Dejounte Murray had his best game as a Spur on Tuesday, and DeMar DeRozan had the fiercest dunk of the season, over Montrezl Harrell, but there were also some defensive lapses and a ton of missed shots that should have gone in. Tonight, with White back on the court, I expect a more consistent performance from the guys in the colorful jerseys, and a better chance to pull out a win against the champs. Let’s do it, Spurs, and Dejounte must dominate Schroeder.

Fiesta Jersey Trivia:

  • The Spurs have never lost a game while wearing the 2020-2021 City Edition Fiesta Jerseys.

One final word:

Go Spurs GOOOOOO!!
