The San Antonio Spurs continue to be a powerhouse led by their two all-stars, Tony Parker and Tim Duncan. The Spurs have the best record in the NBA, 45-13, and with their last 10 games only have two losses. The Spurs just have to keep up their great defense and great fast-break offense to keep their opponents off balance.
The major story of the last week was the trade deadline, but no major names were moved before the Thursday deadline. The biggest move was inHouston, they traded forward Marcus Morris toPhoenixfor a 2013 second-round draft pick. The other big move was the move by Orlando trading guard J.J. Redick, center Gustavo Ayon and guard Ish Smith to Milwaukee for guard Doron Lamb, guard Beno Udrih and forward Tobias Harris.
The player to watch is going to be the “Black Mamba” Kobe Bryant. Kobe made a guarantee: “It’s not a question of if we make the playoffs…We will.” since then the lakers have been 8-2 and he has carried the team throughout these 10 games. The Lakers are getting more help out of Dwight Howard. After the all-star games Howard has averaged about 17 points per game, and a tremendous 14 rebounds per game. The Lakers are now working as a team and seem to make the “guarantee” come to life.
