The Spurs have made a late charge this season that should scare any team in the West, including the Warriors.
With Kawhi Leonard playing better than ever, the Spurs are looking for him when they need a bucket. He’s been averaging a solid 16.6 points, and 7.2 rebounds a game. He’s been very reliable, and is really growing as a player.
With big, Mr. Fundamentals, you are always going to get the same thing game after game. Tim Duncan is contributing his usual 13.9 points and 9.1 rebounds a game. So he is averaging a near double-double.
Manu Ginobli seems primed for some serious action in the playoffs. He is averaging 10.6 points and 4.2 assists a game. Which isn’t his careers best, but it’s definitely not to shabby.
The team also gets Tony Parkerback from injury, and he is playing better than ever, and once again sparking the team as they make a late surge for the playoffs. Although he is only averaging 14.2 points and 4.9 assists a game. It’s his presence that is the most important part of his play at this point.
Some other keys to the Spurs success are Danny Green, Marco Belinelli, and Patty Mills, who are playing great basketball at the time.
Danny Green is averaging 11.8 points a game. Belinelli is averaging 9.3 a game. Mills is putting up around 6.7 points a game. With the Big four playing great, and quality role players playing well too, you can be sure Coach Pop will have them ready for the playoffs.
I haven’t seen a more consistent team then the Spurs in a year’s, and that should equal success in the playoffs. Even if you catch them on a bad night you will still be in for a dog fight.
If the Warriors and Spurs meet, I would give the advantage to San Antonio. They are just so consistent and always play to win. If you want to beat them, you have to bring it consistently, because they won’t beat themselves.
If the Spurs do end up winning their second of back to back championships. There will be no doubt that they will have earned the title, DYNASTY! Watch out for Coach Pop and these Spurs!
