Tonight the San Antonio Spurs will face the Oklahoma City Thunder in San Antonio as the Spurs finally return after the long Rodeo Road Trip.
It will also be a return home for former San Antonio Spurs Assistant General Manager Sam Presti, who is now the Thunder's General Manager.
With the Spurs impressive start to the season and their 46-10 record, Presti spoke on his former team and their league-leading record.
“One thing that’s probably surprising to most people is this is just about the time right now where they really start to pick up momentum. … They’re notoriously kind of slow starters, but they kind of came out of the gates clicking. I think they’re a great example. They’ve been together for quite a while, they’ve gone through a lot of ups and downs.” (sportsradiointerviews.com)
Presti's Thunder, which include All-Stars Kevin Durant and Russel Westbrook, will try to narrow the 9.5 game gap between the teams with a win on the road tonight. The game tips at 6 p.m. CST.
Presti has done a great job with the Spurs and know he brings that knowledge and experience to Oklahoma. The will definitely be successful in the long run. I also hope that the Spurs still have that extra punch and be a better team going into the playoffs.
Presti has been one of the person that made the Spurs successful, I'm happy he is doing a great job at OKC.
The Spurs ran out of the gates beacuse they felt that they need to get more wins early it was emphasized on trainining camp and it has paid dividends. Now it's time to do that strong push towards to end of the season like they always do.
@LFJeremy you know losing Presti has been one of those under the radar loses for the SAS.
