One important aspect in the game of basketball is consistency. The ability to put forth a similar product (whether good or bad) night in, and night out. For the San Antonio Spurs, Monday in Detroit was a reminder that consistency is still a ways out of arms reach, as they continue to deal with injuries through each game. As has been the trend in dealing with injuries to match starting lineups with different opponents, the Spurs began yet another game with a new lineup comprised of a few new faces who hadn’t played too much together.
Tony Parker (11 points), Nando De Colo, Danny Green, Tim Duncan (11 points, 8 rebounds), and Aron Baynes started the game for the Spurs against a fiery Pistons team that was playing its first game under a new head coach. The end result of new lineups and players playing together, who weren’t accustomed to playing together, would be 19 turnovers for the Spurs, as the Pistons defeated them 109-100.no comments
