San Antonio Spurs News

Get ready to buy San Antonio Spurs tickets, because the team is ramping up to keep their legendary stronghold in the Western Conference. The Spurs are known for their consecutive wins season after season. While some have wondered whether or not this winning streak will end, this season may put pressure on the team to keep up with its opponents. The great news is that the San Antonio Spurs are just getting started with the 2017-2018 NBA preseason. The team is ramped up for the upcoming season with leading players but is still under pressure to keep its legendary streak going. Here’s how they’ll get it done:

Play on Players

With players like Patty Mills, Paul Gasol, Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge and Danny Green, it’s no wonder Spurs fans are flocking to buy Spurs tickets before the official season. All five players made it to Sports Illustrated’s Top 100 Players for 2018 list, and for good reasons. Here’s the breakdown:

  • Patty Mills. Mills is now the starting point guard for the team and is covering for injured star player Tony Parker. Over the years, Mills has proven to be more than capable of taking over Parker’s role and has performed at almost the same level as Parker.
  • LaMarcus Aldridge. Aldridge has been the new face of the team for years now. But he’s no rookie. Aldridge has the ability to defend and cause havoc on the offensive side of the ball. Due to his presence, many teams are forced to “double-team” him by leaving a teammate wide open.
  • Danny Green. Green made it on this year’s list, and for a good reason: In the previous season, Green has shown that it’s not a good strategy to leave him open. He can effortlessly shoot from anywhere on the court. Green has the ability to quickly take 3’s and either help the team catch up or continue the gap score.
  • Pau Gasol. Gasol is one of the few remaining big men in the league who will continue to show the team he is an offensive weapon that no defender should ever leave open. His ability to get rebounds is up there with some of the greats.
  • Kawhi Leonard. Leonard has been voted the best two-way player this past season in the NBA. Many in the league claim he is better than LeBron James due to his offensive capabilities and his lockdown defense.

Mills, Aldridge, Green, Leonard and Gasol are just the tip of the icing when it comes to the Spurs. The team’s starting lineup is no joke, either. The team’s coach also is a force to reckon with. With star players, a star coach and serious skills, the Spurs are taking their team to another level as they continue to prove their legendary prowess and distinction in the league.

Look Out for the Best of the West

Although the Spurs are known for their legendary wins, the 2017-2018 preseason is already showing signs of possible contenders that could keep the Spurs on their feet. Here are some possible challenges that will keep the pressure on for the Spurs to win the West:

  • The Houston Rockets. The Rockets have already won two away games, including their bout against the Sacramento Kings on October 18’s preseason game, and don’t seem to be backing down any time soon.
  • Portland Trail Blazers. The Trail Blazers have already shown that they are a tough bunch and shouldn’t be looked at easily for a win.
  • Memphis Grizzlies. The Grizzlies this summer added some elite players to the team who stand to shake up things.
  • Golden State Warriors. It’s already been predicted by many sports analysts that the Spurs are the only team that can stop the Warriors and will have a direct shot to the finals if things go their way.

Despite the ramped-up skills of the Spurs’ West Coast opponents, the team isn’t sleeping. It’s consistency, perseverance, practice and determination that keeps this team going, and with a coach like Greg Popovich, the team isn’t in any mood to let their fans down. That’s just part of what makes sitting on live preseason and official season games worth it when you buy a Spurs ticket.

Keeping the Spot Hot

The 2017-2018 preseason doesn’t mean it’s time for the Spurs to let their guard down. The legendary team is keeping their spot hot by quickly taking out their West Coast opponents one by one. The Spurs already won 107-99 against the Minnesota Timberwolves on October 18’s game. While they have lost to the Sacramento King’s during the October 2 game by six points, they reminded the Kings why they are one of the “Best in the West” teams in the NBA. The Spurs won the October 6 game against the Kings, leaving them in the dust and beating the Kings by 10 points with a 93 to 113 win. The preseason is just warming up.
