Spurs don't lift their heads even with Tim Duncan as coach

Gregg Popovich was expelled and the former player had to assume the role of director of the coaching staff. Fifth consecutive defeat for them.


The Spurs added another defeat, the fifth in a row and the eighth in ten games. It seems that little has been left of that team that led the Western Conference during the first week. They begin to become mad, with Gregg Popovich being expelled again and leaving the pressure of an inexperienced Tim Duncan in these lides.

A large part of the entrance, already touching twenty minutes away in the first period, gave way to San Antonio settling in the match and gradually climbing up. In the last quarter came the local team better both inertia and forces, but they gave wings to some unstable Blazers and they did not miss it: 116-121.

Damian Lillard again had another very bad day in the shots, 4/19, but he looked for a way to reach 22 points. Better was CJ McCollum, who added 32 with 6 rebounds and 7 assists. Hassan Whiteside (21 + 12) and Rodney Hood (16), also featured in a team that is already waiting for Carmelo Anthony to finally debut.

Marcus Aldridge (31 points and 12 rebounds) was the best of the Spurs despite the disaster, also supporting Bryn Forbes (17 points) or Rudy Gay (16 points).

The Trail Blazers had six losses in seven games and seek to wake up, march 5-8. The Spurs also get 5-8 at the bottom of the Western Conference.
