The latest news, notes and roundup for the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday, Nov. 9.

The San Antonio Spurs had its first of two off days on Wednesday, Nov. 8. It came after a win over the Los Angeles Clippers, 120-107. This marked the Silver and Black’s third consecutive win, leading them to a 7-4 record. Prior to that, the team was on a four-game losing stream, with things looking somewhat bleak, especially without Kawhi Leonard in the lineup.

As the Spurs head into a second off day, more news, notes and headlines will develop. However, there were still some that came to light on Wednesday, even on a slow, injury-less day for the organization.

With that said, let’s look at the latest for San Antonio on Thursday, Nov. 9:

  • Pounding the Rock looked at Pau Gasol’s newfound, consistent 3-point game. Through 11 games, he’s averaged 40 percent shooting from behind the arc, taking a career-high 1.8 per game.
  • The Spurs have survived without Kawhi Leonard, for now. As of this writing, there remains no return timetable for the team’s star.
  • Danny Green is the first NBA guard to have 50 blocks and 50 steals in each of the past five seasons. It’s not a new piece of information, but something the Spurs Twitter account posted on a slow news day.

  • The Spurs posted a photo of the legendary Tim Duncan coaching Davis Bertans at practice. They’re standing in the post, so it looks like Bertans took a lesson or two on what the Big Fundamental did best in the league.
