San Antonio will continue their winning streak amidst speculations and questions of their “fast start.”
The Spurs are off to a winning streak and dominates the Western Conference. Scoring 99 points on an average, the team maintains a 5-0 run when playing in their own territory. In terms of their away performance, the team also fares well. Currently, it maintains a 5-1 record.
San Antonio exemplifies a strong form that manifests a high possibility of helping them enter into the championship round. Tony Parker, together with veteran Tim Duncan, will always be the dominating forces on the court. Manu Ginobili continues to be a part of the starting lineup to give some reinforcements both in the offensive and defensive side.
Robert Hennigan and his men suffered their 7th hard court loss. A confrontation with the Heats saw them relinquish an easy victory to the last season’s champion, Miami Heat.
LeBron James has already warned Magic to divert their focus to James Jones. Unfortunately, the team (Magic) shrugged it off and true enough, Jones delivered the points they needed to secure the victory.
Although, it is still too early to tell, it cannot be denied that Dwight Howard’s absence on the court left Magic with a limited attacking option—well, at least for now. Fortunately, Orlando does not have to wait before they see a perfect replacement as their list of potential superstars is already filling the void that Howard left.
Nikola Vucevic is just one of Orlando Magic’s picks. Vucevic averages at around 17.8 points and is currently one of the top scorers in the Eastern Conference. And for him to dominate every match, perhaps it is best to give him the exposure, which he deserves.
Victor Orlando will most likely feature in the battle as well. There are times when he falters—when he give way to turnovers, but the defence against the rookie was simply too overwhelming. Yet, it shows a green light when it comes to their growth in the future. By the time that he has already adjusted, his winning ways will directly contribute to Orlando’s future.
