The Spurs always do best when they finish strong near the end of the season. After blowing two games to Toronto and Memphis, the Spurs are back on track and have manhandled the also hot-at-the-start Mavs, the hyped Nuggets after acquiring Kenyon Martin, and the Jazz who have seen a pretty good start to the season themselves. Is this a good sign that our Spurs are finally getting it all together so early? 19 straight at home baby! With Shaq gone from the Lakers, I really don't see who can beat us this year in the Western Conference. Even our Eastern Conference rivals have been weakened with the Artest suspension.
