Happy victory Friday! I think it’s this week - its been awhile, so I think we’re due for our bi-weekly victory.
Our chances improved since Pop feels this is the perfect game to rest Wemby. Always an honor when a high lottery team feels they can rest against you.
Getting a glimpse in person of one of the generational talents is one of the few things the home crowd had to look forward to, I guess that had to be taken away. But hey, we can still play the “How many 3s do we give up this game” game. I’m going with 18.
Lamelo Ball guys. LAMELO BALLLLL. He is the key to us winning. We HAVE to build a team around him. The guy is a superstar in this league and the best player to ever play for this franchise AND the previous franchise.
Imagine where this team would be if we hadn’t have jumoed from 9 to 3 in 2020
2 wins out of the 3 games I’ve gone to this year. I guess it’s my fault we don’t have a winning record, I should go to more.
Was a nice crowd, probably all the suckers (including me) who bought tickets hoping to see a very tall, slender fellow in black and white play a game.
But seeing a win, no matter the circumstances (except when you’re trying to tank for Chris Paul instead of Felton and May) is always welcome.
I like how the Spurs played aggressive defense. Always had someone on the ball even in the back court. Not that it always leads to turnovers, it just sets a more aggressive tone.
It was kinda weird watching our team play like they had more talent (for once), but that they knew they had more talent and could turn it up when needed. Like, they could’ve put the Spurs away on several occasions, but let up on d to let them right back in it. Ending the third up 12 with momentum, to allow them to cut it to 1 within 3 minutes is that lack of attention, lack of aggression that is the defining characteristic of this team.
Granted, we were short handed on the inside, and they did play hard, I guess I’m trying to define that line of the difference of players and teams really going after it, rather than just doing enough just to stay ahead. That could’ve bit us in the ass tonight, and would easily set us up on pace to lose 29 out of 30 games with our schedule ahead.
