At the quarter pole, it's INDY and OKC and then everyone else.
Where is Portland at in there? They give the Spurs more problems the last 5 years than anyone.

First, no one except Parker is averaging more than 30 minutes per game so far this season, and Parker is right at 30. Some of the starters play a bit more against the better teams but not a lot more.
Second, traditionally the Spurs have used the first part of the season to experiment with lineups and to giving the bench players an extended look.
Third, despite the above, the Spurs are only one loss behind the league leaders.
It seems to me that the Spurs are just coasting right now.
Win or lose this is a game -
You could let it pick your brain for weeks and months, just replay it over and over, won't do you any good at all. When someone loses a loved one and they do that it only brings forth anguish. I feel acceptance is sometimes the key, it happened, now you have to react to it. Giving up is not an option.
