The San Antonio Spurs won their ninth straight game against the defending champs as they continue to dominate at the AT&T Center.
The San Antonio Spurs seemed to be in shambles during the month of February where they went 1-7 on the ugliest Rodeo Road Trip in recent history.
However, the Spurs returned home, got their mojo back, and they’ve been unbeatable during the month of March.
San Antonio welcomed the Warriors to the AT&T Center on Monday night with an eight-game winning streak on the line.
The Spurs controlled the game from the opening tip and added Golden State to an impressive list of victories in the past month that includes the playoff-bound Pistons, Nuggets, Thunder, Blazers, and the league-leading Milwaukee Bucks.

As has been the case during a majority of this winning streak, San Antonio was led by their two stars on their way to victory.
DeMar DeRozan scored 27 points and went into closer mode down the stretch with 11 fourth quarter points. DeMar also filled up the stat sheet with 9 rebounds and 8 assists as he continues to show he’s a much-improved all-around player.
LaMarcus Aldridge was dominant with 23 points on 8-for-12 shooting with 13 rebounds and 2 blocks. The Warriors haven’t had an answer for Aldridge for the past couple of years as he’s become a major problem for Golden State.
Davis Bertans earned a spot in the closing lineup even though his shot wasn’t falling for most of the game. He finished 2-for-7 from the field, including 1-for-6 from three, but the Latvian forward had an incredible block on Klay Thompson and finished with a team-high plus-minus of +10 on the night.
This nine-game winning streak has helped the Spurs surge up the congested Western Conference standings and this squad has been able to build some confidence by taking down many of the league’s top teams.

San Antonio still needs to prove they can beat these type of opponents on the road, but a relatively easy schedule down the stretch should allow them to continue to build momentum heading into the postseason.
