The Spurs are still really good, arguably the second toughest out in the league. But are they saving their small-ball lineups for games that actually matter, or is this really just them embracing an unseasonable playing style?
What’s funny? Leonard and Aldridge figure to be San Antonio’s crunch-time frontcourt for the next four years, but have only played a grand total of 11 minutes together without a third big on the court, per NBA Wowy. As the rest of the league shrinks, the Spurs are growing.
