San Antonio Spurs News: Game Recaps, Grades And More

By Michael Rehome

The San Antonio Spurs are off to a 6-2 start. They are starting to click on both ends of the floor. LaMarcus Aldridge and David West are starting to get comfortable with the team and know what their roles are going to be.

San Antonio has won six out of their last seven games. Though with all of the hype surrounding the Golden State Warriors and their impressive 10-0 start, for the Spurs and their fans, flying below the radar is what they are used to.

Kawhi Leonard is off to an impressive start this season. His maturity and will to take on the role of the teams first option on the offensive end has not phased him one bit.

Being on a team with future Hall of Famers as Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili, the torch is surely being passed over to Leonard and he is stepping up.

Duncan: Spurs Need To Stop Thinking So Much, Just PlayJabari Young, SpursNation

“Everybody is trying to think the game. They’re trying to think the right way, they’re trying to make the right decision every time, and when you’re thinking too much, your normal reaction comes secondary. That pause and that hesitation takes something away from your game. We just have to get through that.”
