This is a game we should win, but I'm nervous. We seem to have this mental block when it comes to winning against the Spurs for years now. It took a 60-point game from Tatum to beat them by 3 in OT last season :lol:

At least noted Celtic-killer DeRozan isn't with them now.

We should win it, hopefully convincingly.
Good assessment:

Spurs lack quality but they play hard. It is going to be a tough game...

After the awful performance against the Nets we better come out ready!

I can’t believe the Spurs are not good and every time they play us they are good.

The problem with the last meeting was, like us, the guys on our team also seem to think the Spurs aren't very good. So they came out super flat and dug a big hole and Tatum had to go off in the 4th quarter and OT. Hopefully they learned their lesson and will play the whole game, especially coming off the drubbing they took the other night.

But it always makes me nervous when fans think we should get an easy win. Because the players are also human and probably think the same thing. Which isn't the right idea.

But I think they'll get it done tonight. Go C's.

Of the things I like about Robert Williams, my favorite thing is that he spreads his arms when he retreats on defense.

We can’t have slow starts, and we can’t have them hang around close in the 4th.

I guess Rob and Josh both have a "non-covid illness." So at least it's not injury related.

It pains me to see Keldon Johnson play. I wanted him so bad in the draft.

Also hate watching Murray play too. Really like that kid.

Celtics Brick Brigade is coming to San Antonio. Hopefully the spectators in the front rows wear their hard hats and the Celtics make just enough to win.

That would be a funny troll for an arena to do, give out hardhats to front rows and seat behind rims.

Tired of being a 500. team. We have too much talent for that nonsense. Let's get a win streak going!
