Due to time constraints, I've shortened the game preview, and combined it with the game thread. No one here needs to be reminded how big a Suns/Spurs game is, especially in the midst of the playoff push.  

Well, Well, Well. Looks like the Spurs are having a tough time. 7th seed in the West, 4.5 games behind Dallas in the Southwest. Have the mighty really fallen? 

The Spurs are coming off of a 109-104 defeat in Houston. Prior to that, the Spurs downed Oklahoma City, lost in Detroit and Philadelphia. The Spurs have gone 5-5 this month, which doesn't really reek of the usual San Antonio stretch time return-to-form.

Spurs Numbers:

PPG:  100.5 pg-15th NBA

OPP PPG: 96.5-9th NBA

PPG DIFF: +4.01-8th NBA

RPG:  42.4-11th NBA

OPP RPG: 39.6-6th NBA

REB DIFF: +2.75-3rd NBA
