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.
Must be that time of year, lots of crazy things are happening in the league. Pop announced today that Drew Eubanks will be the starting point guard for the rest of the season, and the Coyote will be shooting all of Jakob Poeltl’s free throws. In non-April 1 news, the Spurs have to face the Atlanta Hawks tonight, who have been cooling off after a hot start for new coach Nate McMillan, losing 4 of their last 5 games after starting 8-0 just after he was hired. Trae Young is still one of the most dangerous guards in the league, and when he gets hot from the outside, he is nearly impossible to stop. The Spurs will need to match the Hawks with the aggressive offense from last night that allowed them to score 120 on the Kings.
If I may digress for a moment, have you ever noticed that there a bunch of different ways that NBA players spell ‘Trey’? On the Spurs, there’s Trey Lyles and Tre Jones. And Trae is on the Hawks. This may be the first time that three guys whose names rhyme with ‘tray’ have all played in the same game. But Trey Lyles is out tonight, so it won’t happen tonight either. OK, carry on.
There was a guy named Trae, who really knew how to play, and another guy named Tre, who is gonna be great someday. There there’s the last guy named Trey, whose ankle isn’t quite right today. Why their parents named them that way, I don’t know, I just cannot say.
One final word:
Go Spurs GOOOOOO!!
