The NBA 2017-18 season begins this October, and the Spurs are more than ready to return to the Finals. This time, maybe leaving with another NBA Championship title. Before we can make any long-term predictions, we need to look at what’s to come at the start of the season – this October.
This offseason, the Spurs went through a few big changes to the roster. Some has to man the small forward spot, but who will it be? We have three different predictions on the rotation.
During the preseason, the Spurs will be going up against the Sacramento Kings, Denver Nuggets, Orlando Magic, and Houston Rockets. However, the regular season opener will be against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Timberwolves haven’t always been taken very seriously, but they’ve got some pretty high expectations this year. Here are the games we will be paying close attention to this October:
Spurs vs. Timberwolves
October 18 @ 8:30 PM
The Timberwolves made some moves this year and got their hands on some valuable players. The made a deal with the Chicago Bulls to add Jimmy Butler to their roster. Then, they signed free agent Jeff Teague. These guys will form a tough core with Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins – however, it may take a little bit more time to get their team working well together. We’re thinking San Antonio can take this one.
Spurs vs. Raptors
October 23 @ 7:30 PM
The Raptors are returning with some of their star players, Kyle Lowry, Serge Ibaka, and DeMar DeRozan. The biggest issue for the Spurs is they are missing big man depth. This could be a game where Ibaka could really prove himself on defense, but it will be a true test for the Spurs. We are thinking the Raptors may take home the “W” with this one.
Spurs vs. Orlando Magic
October 27 @ 6 PM
This game is going to be the young against the old. Over the past five years, the Magic have been bringing in young, hot talent to their squad. The turning point is that this year they got their hands on Jonathan Isaac. We think the Magic’s players haven’t reached their full potential just yet, so the Spurs will probably take the win – however, this should be an exciting game to watch.
