Talking San Antonio Spurs Team Report

San Antonio Spurs Team Report
Posted 9h 22m ago
Panic might be striking at the heart of Spurs fans, but not the Spurs.

"If the playoffs started tomorrow, I think we'd be in trouble," forward Tim Duncan said. "But we've got a long way to go."

The Spurs have lost three games in a row and they're just 10 games into the season. They've lost two in a row at home. They're 0-4 on the road.

They're also not themselves.

The Spurs lost to the Jazz on Thursday night, 90-83, in San Antonio for the first time in 20 years. They played without Tony Parker for a fourth time this season, and Manu Ginobili joined him on the bench with a strained groin that could keep him out more than a week.

It could be worse. Somehow, the Spurs rallied twice without Parker or Duncan to post wins. Newcomer Richard Jefferson keyed both wins, but otherwise he has been up and down.

Missing key components is no way to win long term, and the injury-plagued start before Thanksgiving doesn't bode well for the grind that follows Christmas.

"(We have to) worry more about improvement and understanding more than our record," coach Gregg Popovich said. "And we know what our record is."
