All the information needed to watch Friday’s game between the San Antonio Spurs and Charlotte Hornets.
For the second time this season, the San Antonio Spurs will have a back-to-back. It will face the Charlotte Hornets in Game 9, looking to bounce back from a loss on national television. Altogether, the Spurs have lost their last four games.
Thursday’s game against the Golden State Warriors started well, including the Spurs getting up by 19 points in the first quarter. Afterward, everything spiraled downward. A hot start from behind the arc faded, with just one-made 3-pointer after the opening period. Kevin Durant broke out of a first-half slump, too, while Klay Thompson found his shooting stroke, seconds after the opening tip.
The Spurs don’t have time to think about this loss, however, with the Hornets in town. They’ll look to avoid a five-game losing streak, something almost unheard of in the Gregg Popovich era.
For the ninth consecutive game, Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker won’t play. Both remain out with quad injuries. Joffrey Lauvergne will miss his sixth consecutive game, due to a right ankle sprain. Popovich recently updated his return timetable. Leonard and Parker don’t have definitive comeback dates, though.
With that said, let’s look at the information on Friday’s game against the Hornets. This includes the TV info and how to listen on the radio.
