This wacky season is nothing if not unpredictable, after a disappointing last-second loss to to the Portland Trail Blazers, the Spurs bounced back, blasting the Suns out of their arena by 25 points while resting so many players that Adam Silver had to fine the team 25 big ones for not playing three of their worn out starters in a road SEGABABA. It was easily the Spurs best game of the season, and it was with 40% of their starting lineup taking the night off.
Tonight is a make up for the game that was originally scheduled for February 22, and the third and next to last makeup game of the season. So far, the Spurs are undefeated in makeup games. With any luck, the Spurs can win this one and Saturday’s game against the Pelicans to remain perfect in the makeup department, and stay in contention for a play-in slot in the playoffs.
Will DeMar DeRozan and Jakob Poeltl come back strong tonight? Will Patty Mills recover from his poor shooting night against the Blazers? Let’s watch and find out.
Indianapolis is famous for racing, and their basketball team that is pacing. The 500 was part of motorsports beginning, and .500 will be the Spurs record if tonight’s game is winning.
One final word:
Go Spurs GOOOOOO!!
