The latest San Antonio Spurs roundup for Sunday, Nov. 26. What news, notes and headlines filled this up?

After two days to fill up on Thanksgiving food and another few quiet evenings, the San Antonio Spurs roundup returns for Sunday, Nov. 26. This comes after the Silver and Black defeated the Charlotte Hornets, 106-86 on Saturday night. It was behind 17 points from LaMarcus Aldridge and 17 from Pau Gasol.

The new week isn’t here yet, but there’s plenty of Spurs news, notes and headlines to focus on for the rest of the weekend. Let’s dive into it:

  • A great defensive performance from the Spurs secured their win over the Hornets. Ethan Farina has the recap from Saturday’s victory.
  • Before this game, the San Antonio Express-News had a short piece on San Antonio’s defensive excellence. Manu Ginobili doesn’t think the defense is playing up to par, however, which can change when Kawhi Leonard returns.
  • Pounding the Rock looked at how the Spurs showed off their versatility against Charlotte.
  • Around Thanksgiving, JR Wilco of Pounding the Rock looked at why we should be thankful for Ginobili, who continues to play basketball at age 40.
  • Kyle Anderson had another terrific night for the Spurs. He filled up the stat sheet, again, with 14 points, 5 rebounds, 5 steals and 3 assists. This performance was one of his latest, shining moments, as he remains in Leonard’s starting small-forward spot.
