The SAN Antonio Spurs beat the New Orleans Pelicans, who acquired McCollum in a trade, 124-114 in an NBA regular-season game.With two straight wins, the Spurs improved to 22-35, temporarily 12th in the Western Conference.But they are only one game behind the 10th-place Portland trail Blazers and half a game behind the Pelicans.Given that the Blazers just gave up so many stars this season, the Spurs have a good chance of breaking into the playoffs if they keep playing down the stretch.The spurs’ likely play-off opponents, Minnesota, the Clippers and the Lakers, have also been in so-so form this season, and it’s hard to say who will win in the playoffs.The Spurs went 4-13 in the first 17 games of the season, a remarkable rebound from a season that was widely expected to collapse alongside several tanks.The team’s no. 1 star, Dejounte Murray, has made the all-star team with an impressive season.Have to praise popovich’s coaching ability, due to a very mediocre roster, the team’s total salary is not high, including a number of young players, before the start of the season, everyone’s expectations were very low, this season is widely considered to be a training season for the Spurs.Popovich turned Murray into an All-Star before the season even ended.Other players like Keldon Johnson and Jakob Poeltl are getting better and better.On the other hand, if the Spurs do make the playoffs, that means the draft will drop further and they won’t get a lottery pick.#NBA#
