Pregaming: Spurs vs. Rockets


AT&T CENTER — Counting the preseason, this will be the sixth time the San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets face off this season. I’m sure the Spurs players are as tired of the Rockets as you and I are.

  • Watching shootaround, DeJuan Blair’s shooting form is improved, it’s just not consistent. It changes from shot attempt to shot attempt. Half the time it’s good, the other half not so much. He’ll get it down with more reps.
  • Spurs assistant coach Chad Forcier has Danny Green practicing shots out of a variety of dribble moves. It’s one of the more fun warmups to watch. Forcier also has Green working out of a variety of holds and hand checks. I remember the days last year when Green was running sprints with the strength and conditioning coaches before games because he wasn’t even going to be in uniform for that night’s contest. Oh How far we have come.
  • University of North Carolina head coach Roy Williams is at the game tonight. He was at the pregame shootaround talking to Danny Green, who he coached at North Carolina, and Spurs assistant Jacque Vaughn, who he coached at Kansas.
