The San Antonio Spurs had a lot of young talents which is fun to watch. It gives more hope when we see them in court. More of it, they improved their game specifically Keldon Johnson.
Spurs’ last scrimmage game against the Indiana Pacers showed how they consistently help each other to win. A huge boost for the team who rebounded from two losses earlier. This momentum could help them in the next eight important games.
Veteran Rudy Gay help the team on scoring with his 23 points. He’s draining his shot from the arc, also found his teammates at the right place to score. Gay is a proven scorer on his career. The Spurs have the best chance to win when Rudy Gay had a great game offensively. He’s a mismatch on offense as he can play either post up or from the outside.
DeMar DeRozan also had a great game offensively scoring 17 points and grabbed 7 rebounds. If he’s hitting the midrange the Spurs had the best chance all game.
While the young guys have a pretty good game. Lonnie Walker and Dejounte Murray had 12 apiece, add to Murray production is his all-around game with 8 rebounds, and 6 assists against two turnovers only. While Keldon Johnson got 21 points in 25 minutes after Bryn Forbes sit out for the final scrimmage game.
Spurs have a lot of inconsistencies throughout the season. But still, they had a piece together to put a win. San Antonio has a better record against the winning team compared to teams competing for the eighth seed.
Spurs have lessened weapons into this battle. But if there weakest link Gregg Popovich will execute the best rotation Spurs having so far, they have a better chance for the remaining spot.
