Spurs’ Ginobili: We Need to Beat Elite Teams

Updated

on

At first, the Spurs didn’t pay it any attention. It was too early to panic, too early to acknowledge the fact they hadn’t beaten a decent team. The Spurs’ first loss to the Portland Trail Blazers: A 115-105 defeat in Portland. Then a 94-88 loss in Oklahoma City in November, followed by a 112-106 loss to the Houston Rockets; a 111-100 loss to the Indiana Pacers.

“When it happens the first three times, four times, five times,” Spurs guard Manu Ginobili said, “then you say, ‘Okay, things happen. The schedule and…’ Now it’s eight (losses), so there has to be a tendency now.”

The eight losses Ginobili is referring to: The Spurs’ 1-8 record against the NBA’s elite teams; 1-7 against the Western Conference’s best.
