Cool Thunder-Spurs Preview

Thunder-Spurs Preview
Wire Reports - Comtex-AP
Sunday, December 14, 2008

Coming off a victory over the team with the second-worst record in the Western Conference, the Spurs try for their sixth consecutive win on Sunday night when they host the Oklahoma City Thunder, owners of the NBA's worst mark.

San Antonio (14-8) won 98-86 at Minnesota on Friday for its 14th victory in 19 games since losing three straight to open the season.

``Usually it takes us a while,'' said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, whose team is clicking with a healthy Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker in the lineup. ``It usually takes us into March and April before we're really ready to go. I think we're on the right track for sure.''

San Antonio, which has won at perennial West powers Denver and Dallas during its current streak, looks to continue that run of success when it faces the Thunder (2-22) for the first time this season.

The Spurs have won seven of the last eight meetings with the team formerly known as the Seattle SuperSonics and have recorded six consecutive victories over them at the AT&T Center.

Tim Duncan had 17 points and 13 rebounds against Minnesota, Parker added 17 and nine assists and Ginobili scored 16 while the Spurs held an opponent to fewer than 100 points for 16th time in their last 18 games.

The Thunder franchise has scored more than 88 points just three times in their last eight contests against the Spurs.
