Despite the unworldly dominance of LeBron James over the past several weeks, the Miami Heat does not boast the best record in basketball. That honor goes to the constantly neglected and over-looked San Antonio Spurs. At 42-12, Gregg Popovich’s squad holds a 2 ½ game lead over Oklahoma City for the number one seed in the Western Conference. For as low as $2 per ticket, Spurs fans can find ticket listings for games at the AT&T Center on Whiztix.com.
Year in and year out, the Spurs always find themselves flying under the radar despite typically posting one of the better records in the NBA. Tony Parker has taken enhanced responsibility as a scorer with Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili approaching the latter portions of their career. Parker, who just appeared in his 5th career All-Star game leads the Spurs in scoring (20.8) and assists (7.6).
The epitome of a team, San Antonio has seven different players averaging in double figures for points. A league high 12 different players have started games for the Spurs and there have been multiple occasions where Duncan, Ginobili, and Parker have been held out of games forcing key role players to step and replace them.
San Antonio begins a six-game home stand on February 27 when the Phoenix Suns travel to the AT&T Center. The stretch includes two critical clashes with Chicago and Oklahoma City. The Bulls, who are still without star point guard Derrick Rose, managed to stay in contention during the first half of the season sitting at the fifth spot in the Eastern Conference. San Antonio hosts Chicago on March 6, and hundreds of Spurs tickets can be found on Whiztix.com for under $20 per ticket and beginning at as low as $9 per ticket.
Kevin Durant then leads the Thunder into town on March 11 for a potential conference championship preview. The two teams split the first two games of the series with each team winning on their home court. They’ll meet for a fourth time when the Spurs travel to Oklahoma City in April. Spurs fans can purchase tickets for the March 11 showdown on Whiztix.com beginning at $30 per ticket. With five of the Spurs’ first seven games out of the break being against teams with losing records, San Antonio will have a prime opportunity to extend their lead over the Thunder before they meet.
Other key upcoming matchups to be played in San Antonio include games against Golden State (Mar. 20), the Los Angeles Clippers (Mar. 29), and (Miami (Mar. 31). San Antonio Spurs Tickets for these, and other games can be found on Whiztix.com.
