The New Year is almost here and with that comes time for some goal setting. Here are three New Years’ resolutions for the San Antonio Spurs backcourt.
The start to the 2019-20 season has not gone the way that the San Antonio Spurs would have hoped but there is still reason for optimism. As we enter the new decade, the Spurs are only a few games out of playoff contention and team spirits are high.
There’s plenty to work on but the San Antonio Spurs backcourt has shown promise through the first 31 games of the season. Everyone has impressed in their own way but there’s always room for improvement.
Dejounte Murray has made a full recovery from his torn ACL and has shown that he can be the dynamic two-way guard that the Spurs hoped he could be. Derrick White has taken a huge step forward with his outside shooting ability. Patty Mills is having a career year and Lonnie Walker has driven the Spurs fanbase into a frenzy.
There have been moments of extreme frustration to be sure, but the San Antonio Spurs can still turn this season around and make their record-setting 23rd consecutive playoff appearance. Making a few key improvements will go a long way towards getting this team back into the top eight in the Western Conference.
Most people abandon their New Year’s resolutions within the first few months. If the Spurs backcourt is able to stick to these three resolutions the team will have a much better chance of making that coveted playoff berth.
