Did you see the Nets playing the Lakers last night, they were pathetic.
It could have been just an off night but their offence stunk.

Jose_TheGenius 02-06-13 12:42 PM

i got 8-1 with a loss to Chicago

esparzar1 02-06-13 12:51 PM

8-1 Loss @ GSW

JuanCaca 02-06-13 01:05 PM

8-1 L against sacramento if timmy didnt play...

mckennaspur1 02-06-13 02:36 PM

Spurs always do well when I pick 'em to fail, so I say 4-5.

Money4Nothing 02-06-13 02:41 PM

I think if the Spurs get out 6-3 they will be in good shape in the standings. Without Timmy and Manu yet it will be hard to ask for better than that.

The Spurs have been poor on the road this year so 6-3 will be excellent.

I thought 6-3 until I realized that they Spurs had to close out the trip against Luis Scola and his PHX Suns.

8-1. One game against Scola is worth two wins :)

Or does every win against Scola count as two? I get confused.

Money, don't know what your definition of poor is but the Spurs are 22-2 at home and 16-9 away, which is the best in the NBA. I wouldn't say poor but rather 'they could have done better'. Your prediction of 6-3 is close to mine but I'll say 7-2 on this trip.

I can see Spurs either win @ the Lakers then lose @ GS or win in GS and drop the Lakers. It all depends if Pop picks the right players to play less minutes in one or the other. Pick your poison!!!!:shocked

Pop should do whatever he feels is best so he does NOT over play the Big Three or his best players for that B2B.

WOW you really give Sac Town a lot of credit.

I can't see Spurs lose in Sac Town whether TD plays or not although I hope TD plays there!:shocked

I am hoping Manu and TD will play in half of the Spurs RRT games. But even if that happened Spurs would still be good only IF OKC and LA Clippers did win more games and catch up with Spurs.

Ha ha Ha Yeah Spurs play Scola at the end of the road trip and then at home...

Scola or no Scola....It don't matter!!
I say this Spurs team wins Phx on the road and at home this year.:shocked

Your 8-1 sounds like a Solid Prediction!:drummer

Solid Prediction. Lakers could be a trap game. You never know!!
Even if they are struggling, You just need to be super prepared for surprise in LA Lakers.:drummer

Hey Deep in my heart I am wishing Spurs could go 9-0 :drummer

So far Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard were very Solid and of course TP played like an All Star & MVP.
The rest Spurs players showed up and competed very well vs. Minn last night!!!

Go Spurs Go

Money4Nothing 02-08-13 08:47 PM

I'm sticking with 6-3.

Hoping for it actually.

rooster 02-10-13 12:45 PM

6 and 3 if they do any better than that I will be surprised. Tony can not do it all.

MRJONESIII 02-10-13 02:06 PM

5-4.

spurscrazed 02-10-13 02:53 PM

Well... Glad no one saw that Detroit loss!!!:shocked

Spurs needed that loss thought!~!!!!!!!!! To wake up and play better!!!!

Guess the weather was playing some trick on the Spurs on the road this time.

Today Spurs seemed SOLID after shoot around and even Danny Green said they will go back to the BASIC SPURS BALL in defense and taking care of the ball.

Here is the TWEET from Spurs.com

Quote:

San Antonio Spurs ‏@spurs
Find out what Tony Parker, Danny Green and Coach Pop had to say after shootaround about tonight's game with the Nets: Shootaround: Tony Parker | video | THE OFFICIAL SITE OF THE SAN ANTONIO SPURS
I guess Spurs back to their Spurs Ball tonight and should bounce back on track!

Duncan an Manu might not be ready (according to Pop) for anther game....

Maybe Spurs win both B2B tonight and Tomorrow......

Go Spurs Go!!!!

Well, three games in with hind sight, 6-3 or 7-2. Just had to lose one the weak sisters of the east the should won, maybe another. Then a loss on the western loop, or not. This bunch sometimes just defies logic when faced with adversity.

In other words they could just turn it all upside down going 9-1. Doubt, but not a surprising possibility since they owe l a and seem to own nocal.

exit7 02-15-13 01:13 PM

Uhhhh... just fyi, the spurs don't play the Lakers on this road trip. There are two teams in LA, and we play the other one lol.

That will be a tough game if only because the clippers are out for revenge against us.

OK exit7 I just checked the schedule.

So on Thu 21st Spurs are @ La Clippers not Lakes. My bad.

Still does not change my prediction though. I think Pop will pick his poison of either games GS or Clippers to lose. But I sure hope Spurs prove me wrong and win them all.:wink

Go Spurs Go

exit7 02-18-13 01:44 PM

Gotta keep you guys on your toes, haha! But I think they can get out of this thing without another loss. I think tony takes his matchups with Chris Paul seriously, seeing that for some reason he is the consensus top pg in the league. And with all this rest pop could choose to play everyone for both games

Joe Tango from San Diego 02-22-13 01:39 AM

It's easy to 8-1 because a payback blowout to the clip joint means plenty of rest for Timmy and Manu at golden state on a road double B2B, and Le Blur may get a rest seeing how well the rest of the squad played even WITHOUT Kawhi....

I would've said 7-2 for those guys who know me, but I wouldn't of guessed they would have lost to the pistons either...

spurscrazed 02-24-13 01:09 PM

Well it is all down to the last game tonight.

Let's see...If Spurs mustered all their skills and put for it their best effort and winning attitudes applying the same TEAM Concept, I see Spurs winning tonight @ the Suns even with TP out.

Go Spurs Go!:rock

spurscrazed 02-25-13 12:45 AM

God that was One EPIC Good Rodeo Road Trip in 2013!!

7-2 was pretty Good number!:wink

Ada Boys!!! :thumb

Get Well TP and Neal you have until Wednesday now and at HOME SWEET HOME!

Go Spurs Go!:rock
