The latest San Antonio Spurs news, notes and headlines for Monday, Nov. 6.
The San Antonio Spurs completed a successful weekend of basketball, snapping a four-game losing streak and winning back-to-back matchups. The first came against the Charlotte Hornets, winning by seven points. Then came Sunday’s game against the Phoenix Suns, resulting in a blowout victory.
Entering Week 4, the Spurs have their most momentum since the four-game winning streak to start the season. They have three games to move forward with this, with the next one happening on Tuesday, Nov. 7.
Before this, there were a handful of news and notes that made its way through the weekend. Let’s take a look at the latest for Monday, Nov. 6:
- With Sunday’s win, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich moved into sixth place on the all-time wins list among NBA coaches. The person Popovich passed? The legendary Phil Jackson (at least in the coaching ranks). He could pass George Karl for No. 5 this season.
- Davis Bertans’ G-League stint was only for one game, but he looked sharp. We looked at his progress and what it meant for his outlook.
- Before the Suns game, the Spurs held a moment of silence for the victims of Sunday’s mass shooting in Texas. ESPN has more on it.
- Pau Gasol commented on the mass shooting, calling for more to be done to protect the innocent. He said “it’s gotten out of control,” according to the San Antonio Express-News.
- Popovich wasn’t interested in talking about basketball after Sunday’s win. He said basketball is meaningless, with the recent shooting near San Antonio.
