It’s time for Basketball: Spurs at Pistons

The Spurs are on a 10 game losing streak, but tonight they face a team that’s even better at losing games than them

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.

This is the winter of our discontent. These are times that try men’s and women’s souls, and after the crazy last few days, I don’t even know who plays for who any more in the NBA. This is the start of the Khem Birch era in San Antonio, and maybe a first look at sharpshooting guard Devonte’ Graham in a Silver and Black uniform (or Aqua and Pink, who knows?).

Tonight the remaining members of the Spurs face off against Detroit, who is only 12 game behind the Spurs in the overall league standings. The Spur have another opportunity to fall to 29th place with a loss tonight, or even a tie for 30th and last in the league in the unlikely event that the tank commanding Rockets can beat the Heat in Miami.

Let’s watch tonight and see some new faces for the team and see how well the new pieces can fit together. Jeremy Sochan is close to returning, but I’d be surprised if he takes the court tonight, and I also expect Tre Jones to sit this one out. It’ll be the basketball version of The Last of Us, with a lot less fungus. Only masochists will watch this game, so I’ll see you there.

Game Prediction:

DeVonte’ Graham will score 30, before Pop pulls him from the lineup in the fourth quarter because the Spurs are in danger of winning.

One final word:

Go Spurs GOOOOOO!!
