The Spurs come back from the All-Star break fresh and rejuvenated

Overall, the silver and black were a lot more engaged and focused this week. That showed in the turnover department as the San Antonio Spurs only had seven giveaways.

Slated for an afternoon prime time game on ABC, the Spurs took a trip to the East Coast for a date with the new-look Cleveland Cavaliers. I feel confident in saying this was one of San Antonio’s best and most important wins of the season.

The Spurs made their defensive presence known from tip-off. They held Cleveland to 20 points at the end of the first quarter. Cleveland got hot in the second quarter and gained a three-point lead at the half.

The Spurs eventually made a run towards the end of the third that gave them a substantial lead. They didn’t fold down the stretch and ran away to a 110-94 victory.

Coming off a four-game losing streak, I can’t even begin to articulate how big this is for San Antonio’s confidence.

LaMarcus Aldridge had another excellent game with totals of 27 points and six rebounds. Danny Green was huge on both ends of the floor. He disrupted Cleveland’s offense multiple times while putting in 22 points of his own.

The Spurs finally return home

It’s been a rough few weeks, but the Spurs will finally be back in San Antonio. It’s somewhat of an easier week for the Spurs compared to the last few.

First, the Spurs will host the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday before taking on the Los Angeles Lakers Saturday.

It’s important for the Spurs to win both of these games for two reasons. One, this is one of the easier weeks they will have left. Secondly, the Pelicans are the eighth seed in the Western Conference and only trail the Spurs by a measly two games.

I know it doesn’t feel like it, but the Spurs aren’t a guarantee to make the playoffs. However, two wins this week will definitely help their cause after a super tough stretch.

My name is Matthew Carnahan. I’m a fan off mostly every sport that exists but the NBA has and will always be my favorite. Growing up I never really had a favorite team, I had favorite players. Those players ranged from Lebron James to Kobe Bryant to Steve Nash . I believe the NBA is the easiest sport to have favorite players in as it’s easier to build familiarity with them when they’re not wearing a helmet or mask. I’ve had a lifelong love for the NBA and it’s why i’m so passionate when it comes to covering it.
