Spurs wrapped up a one-hour practice in advance of traveling to OKC. McDermott said there was focus on shoring up their woeful transition D:
“I think we are going to improve. Pop has been drilling us pretty hard the last few weeks and eventually it will click.” – 1:39 PM

Zion as the ball handler. A Pelicans guard/forward as the screener. I counted 5 of these on my rewatch.
Here were the outcomes:
1) Devonte’ Graham made 3
2) Zion floater
3) Jose drive and layup
4) Zion gets fouled
5) Zion and-1

Last year the Lakers blew a 26-point lead to the Thunder and basically folded thereafter.
I can’t overstate the importance of Wednesday’s game vs. Portland. If this team has a shred of fight left in it we’ll see it then. If not, given the upcoming schedule, the season is over. – 1:31 AM

From @ESPNStatsInfo:
According to Second Spectrum, Zion Williamson held the Thunder to 2-14 (14%) shooting as the closest defender.
That’s the lowest percentage he’s allowed in any game in his career, min. 10 shot attempts against (regular season and playoffs). – 1:18 AM

OKC has a -1.8 point differential on the season. 4 of their last 6 losses were by 5 points or less (2 in OT). Mostly a competitive team in a lot of close games.
OKC also has the 6th best odds to draft Victor Wembanyama or Scoot Henderson.

After playing 3 games in 4 nights, including a back-to-back set against the Lakers on Friday and Saturday, the Spurs are off today – no practice or game – for the second day in a row.
They’ll return to practice Tuesday before leaving for OKC, where they play Wednesday night. – 11:24 AM

Dyson Daniels and Josh Giddey overlapped at the NBA Global Academy in Australia.
Marty Clarke believed a day like this was possible.
He just didn’t think it would arrive so soon. nola.com/sports/pelican…8:53 AM
