The San Antonio Spurs’ Free Fall Continues with Fourteenth Consecutive Defeat

The San Antonio Spurs continued their free fall this Friday and added their fourteenth consecutive defeat, which is their second worst streak in history.

Gregg Popovich’s men, who lost to the New Orleans Pelicans 121-106 without French prodigy Victor Wembanyama due to hip discomfort, are just two losses away from equaling the Texan franchise’s worst record, losing 16 games in a row. the 2022-2023 academic year.

The Spurs’ next two games are on the road against the surprising Minnesota Timberwolves, who are first in the Western Conference (14-4), and at home against the Chicago Bulls (6-14), who on Thursday made a splash by defeating the Milwaukee Bucks of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Damian Lillard.

Bottom of the West with a demoralizing record of 3-16, the Spurs have not won since last November 2, when they beat the Phoenix Suns to move to a promising 3-2 that at this point is more than forgotten.

The only ‘consolation’ for the Spurs is that the Detroit Pistons are going through an even sadder moment than them: 16 consecutive losses (worst streak in the history of the franchise) and last in the East with the worst record in the league (2-17 ).

Jonas Valanciunas (24 points and 12 rebounds) was the best for the Pelicans (11-9 balance) while Jeremy Sochan with 13 points was the Spurs’ top scorer with eight players above 10 points but none with 20 or more.

San Antonio held up well in the first half (63-61 at halftime) but fell apart in the second half (58-45 partial in the last two quarters).
