Beaten for the ninth consecutive time, San Antonio was no match for Paul George, Kawhi Leonard and company this Monday (99-124), at the Frost Bank Center.
One course further. The young San Antonio team did not start with the favor of the predictions against the LA Clippers, that is clear. Ruthless confirmation on the floor of the Frost Bank Center on Monday, with the 124-99 victory of Paul George (28 pts), Kawhi Leonard (21 pts) and company. Beaten for the ninth time in a row, the Spurs held the distance rather well in the first period (55-66 MT) before exploding in the third quarter (66-86), despite the exploits of Cedi Osman (17 pts) . “SA” suddenly finds color defensively, it’s no joke, finally making the right choices in attack (75-86, then 77-91 at the end of the 3rd QT). Discreet in the first period, Keldon Johnson (22 pts) came out of his box, for example with a powerful dunk in the last quarter to delight the fans who really needed it. But the Californians still recited their basketball, “PG” in the lead, with the help of Kawhi, James Harden (13 pts, 10 pts), Daniel Theis (19 pts), Norman Powell (17 pts) and Russell Westbrook (10 pts). ). Too much for San Antonio.

It was less worse than at the end of October, with a 123-83 card from Ty Lue’s men…”I enjoyed the game» Gregg Popovich enthuses, however. Nobody likes to lose, they fought and executed well against a very good and very talented team, very well coached too. So I’m going to sleep well, we’re going to watch the videos of the match, we’ll continue tomorrow but I liked a lot of things, individually and collectively“, he said again. What act.
And Victor Wembanyama? He didn’t have his best game, let’s face it. Earlier Monday, Vincent Collet explained about his former foal, on be in sports : “ It is in decision-making that Victor can improve. When you take better photos, you’re more likely to make them…» Words which took on their full meaning in this meeting, with a certain number of bad decisions from the French giant (2.24 m), as discreet as his statistics suggest: 9 points at 4/12 on shots, including 0/ 4 from distance, 3 rebounds, 4 assists and 2 blocks in 27 minutes. We sometimes felt physically beaten, he who involuntarily put his finger in George’s eye at the start of the match, with the latter missing part of the first quarter. “Pop” in any case took out the Frenchman 9’07 from the end of the match and we didn’t see him again after that. A coup for “Wemby”, who, for once, did not make the post-match conference? The Spurs will meet these same Clippers on Wednesday, still at home.
