  • Kawhi Leonard remained out for the sixth consecutive game. Since he didn’t accompany the Spurs on their road trip, don’t expect him to play in the seven game. Either way, fans badly want to see him back.
  • Clifton Brown of the IndyStar provided three takeaways from the Spurs vs. Pacers. He thought the game was played at San Antonio’s pace, despite the scoreboard going in the opposite direction.
  • Ben Wiese of Pounding the Rock looked at the growing pains the Spurs experienced in this game.
  • Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News looked at how the guards disappeared for the second consecutive game. Notably, Patty Mills and Dejounte Murray continued their struggles from the field.
  • Bonus link: Yahoo! Sports analyzed the perfect fit between the Boston Celtics and Aron Baynes, who signed a one-year deal in the offseason. Baynes played for the Spurs from 2012-15, winning the 2014 NBA championship.
