Really fortunate we're going to finish our Spurs games this year with no Kawhi to contend with.

Sounds like he'll be back the very next day after our matchup on Friday.

Absurd that the Spurs are the only team in the NBA who have given up less PPG than us with the 2x DPOY and MVP candidate yet to step on the floor.

Kawhi out is huge for us, he would’ve had his hands full with Brown/Tatum/Kyrie switches on his first game back so it’s understandable.

Another great game for our young team to show their mental fortitude. Let’s get it

2nd game i’ll miss but 4.30 am is just a bit too much, even for me. I’ll watch tmw while preparing for housewarming party. Anyway hold it down for me guys.

Gonna be a close one but kyrie should feast inside. Without anderson and leanord they dont have enough wing defenders to contain all of Irving, Brown, Tatum.

Sprinkle in some good Horford D on LMA and we should get this. Both teams will be good defensively but feels like we have more firepower.

Should be a colorful match-up at the 2-spot between Brown and Green.

Three Germans the last game. Three Frenchmen and three Aussies in this one.

Even without Kawhi and Kyle Anderson, this game will be tough. Spurs always find a way.

I don't like Pop never have since he questioned us putting "World Champions" on our championship banners. Never forget your humble ABA origins sir!! Do not question our NBA royalty!! We'll let you know when you've accumulated enough banners to be in the conversation. :wink:

Hope it's nothing too serious.

Think this is the last game of masked Kyrie - enjoy it.

As much as I'm happy to take on the Spurs with Kawhi, it will be great to have him back playing in the league. Love watching him play.

lol so our backcourt is a guy in a mask and a guy in boss goggles.

maybe Tatum can play with a snorkel, and Baynes with a headlamp.

Horford should be wearing a scrumcap cause of the concussions:

Tatum should get a hoop nose rings since he's got a nose for buckets.

Tony Parker....................props to that guy for smashing Eva Longoria, but a huge thumbs down for banging his teammate's wife. Total scumbag move, especially when you're an NBA player capable of getting girls quite easily. I hope Kyrie lights him up......because I put money on the Cs tonight.
