Just days removed from being out of the playoff picture, the Spurs (40-30) are seventh in the West with 12 games remaining after winning their last three in a row. Back on track with three games left in a timely six-game homestand, the Spurs understand now is not the time to overlook a seemingly overmatched opponent. “We can’t let down,” said LaMarcus Aldridge, who powered the Spurs past the Timberwolves with a relentless 39-point, 10-rebound double-double. “We have to be focused. We have to take care of business. We have to keep the same attitude, the same hunger going into this game. They are still a good quality team. We have to keep playing like we are in that tenth spot.”
One surefire solution: Get the ball to Aldridge. The six-time All-Star scored 24 and 25 points in wins over Orlando and New Orleans before coming within two points of matching his season high Saturday. “He’s been our backbone,” Gay said. Aldridge said he loves performing in the playoff-like atmospheres the Spurs find themselves in on a nightly basis these days. “If you are any type of competitor, than you are built for these games,” he said. “It’s live or die for us right now.”
Things are looking shaky in the Alamo City as the postseason inches closer and it remains to be seen if the Spurs even make the playoffs all together. But digging in their collective heels and figuring things out fast is all San Antonio can do right now. “You have no choice, you can’t give in. If you give in, that shows your character,” said LaMarcus Aldridge. “I don’t think anyone on this team is a quitter, so we have to figure it out.”
