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.

The preseason is an interesting time. You’re going to see some crazy rotations that wouldn’t every happen in a game that counted, but this part of the schedule is simply a chance for players to get some practice in simulated game situations and let the coaches try out some things and evaluate players. It’s hard not to get overly excited when a player has a positive performance, like Josh Primo lighting up the league in his debut on Monday, or to get discouraged when the entire team looks lifeless as they did in Wednesday’s loss to the Pistons. The real answer is that neither one of those results really matter, but they may have impact as the team tries to cut down to a 15 player roster before the season opener on October 20 against the Magic.

If you have league pass, you should be able to watch the game tonight because there’s no scheduled broadcast in the San Antonio area, so it shouldn’t be blocked in the Central Texas area. When the regular season starts and Bally Sports Southwest, CW35, and KENS pick up the broadcasts, the local blackouts should resume, so prepare a strategy for your regular season Spurs watching starting next week.

One final word:

Go Spurs GOOOOOO!!
