After a recent stretch of losses, it’s time for the San Antonio Spurs to think about changing up the rotations. Here are three adjustments that would help.
Originally set on making the playoffs, the San Antonio Spurs now look bound for the lottery. They’re three and eight over their past eleven games and have sunk far out of playoff contention.
Even as the Spurs have struggled, head coach Gregg Popovich has gone with the same starters night after night. No matter the defensive issues, he seems committed to keeping his starters together.
It was fun to see Lonnie Walker get two more starts just before the All-Star break but that won’t be a regular thing once DeMar DeRozan is healthy. And no matter how much we complain about the mistakes Bryn Forbes makes on defense his spot in the starting lineup looks secure.
Even without disrupting the starting lineup there are quite a few rotation adjustments that could be made to help the San Antonio Spurs now and down the road. If the team continues to struggle it will be interesting to see what kind of changes Pop will be willing to make.
If nothing else, these three rotation adjustments would be a nice change of pace and could make games more exciting.
