San Antonio Spurs Season Preview History
San Antonio Spurs 2013 NBA Preview:
The Spurs came oh-so-close to a 5th NBA Championship, but a Ray Allen fadeaway three-pointer gave the Heat new life and led to a Game 7 victory for Miami. The Spurs had 58 wins in the regular season, and are thinking about 60+ this season with the possibility of a full-on breakout year from Kawhi Leonard. The 6’7 small forward can be the fourth cog in the Duncan, Parker, Ginobili machine as they go for it all again in the 2013-14 Season.San Antonio will tip-off the season at the Staples Center against the Lakers on Nov. 1, before finishing a short West Coast trip in Portland and Denver. The first home game of the season will be Nov. 6 against the Phoenix Suns. Other key home games will be vs. Houston on Nov. 30, vs. Oklahoma City on Dec. 21, and vs. Miami on March 6 in an NBA Finals rematch.
San Antonio Spurs 2012 NBA Preview:
The San Antonio Spurs are at the same time one of the most formidable teams in the NBA, and oldest. However, that doesn’t really matter when you’re dealing with one of the strongest cores in the NBA between future Hall of Famer Tim Duncan and superstars Tony Parker and Manu Ginobli. That is the group that, with hobbled knees, captured the best record in the Western Conference in 2010-11. However there’s a bit of a youth movement afoot in the land of the Alamo, as forwards Tiago Splitter and DeJuan Blair, and guard George Hill use those fill-in minutes to gain experience for when the time comes and it’s them starting in the Alamodome. While there’s no timetable set for that, it’s exciting to watch one of the most compelling mixes of fastbreak and half court offenses the NBA has to offer.
2010-2011 San Antonio Spurs NBA Preview:
The San Antonio Spurs may be one of the oldest teams in the NBA, but they still have a solid core of talented players. Despite a mediocre season, the Spurs still managed to sneak into the playoffs in the competitive Western Conference, and while they may have been replaced by several upstart young teams as a perennial favorite, they can still make a run.
San Antonio has been led by Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili for much of the last decade, and that is one again the case. The talented triumvirate can still have an impact if they manage to stay healthy, as Duncan averaged a double-double last year. One question mark may be Richard Jefferson, who is coming off a sub-par season with the Spurs. While his production is uncertain, if he can be the dangerous scoring threat he once was, the Spurs will be successful.
While their foundation is firmly routed with experienced players, the Spurs also have a slue of up-and-comers ready to step up. Second-year man DeJuan Blair proved he could be a reliable scorer and defender, and George Hill established himself as a solid point guard.
2009-2010 San Antonio Spurs NBA Preview:
The San Antonio Spurs are one of the top teams in the NBA heading into the 2009-2010. The Spurs have reloaded after their first round playoff exit by adding Richard Jefferson and DeJuan Blair. Jefferson will be join an already strong nucleus that includes Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. Those 4 talented players, along with a strong supporting cast, should take the Spurs deep into the playoffs. Whether San Antonio can reach the NBA Finals this year will likely depend a lot on keeping players healthy. If the Spurs stay healthy then fans in San Antonio could watch Head Coach Gregg Popovich and GM R.C. Buford put another NBA Championship banner up at the AT&T Center.
