    Spurs play 12 of next 16 games on the road, how will they fare on the rodeo road trip

    Will Pops rest guys or push to get the top seed? I can see the spurs losing 6 or 7 of the games during this stretch.

    Certainly won't be over confident. However, I would guess they are 70% ATS on this rodeo road trip in the past 5 years or so.

    actually 58.5%, here are the year by year ATS numbers:

    '13 - 5-4
    '12 - 6-2-1
    '11 - 6-3
    '10 - 2-6
    '09 - 5-2-1

    so except for 2010, yeah covering 2/3

    losing Kwhahi Leonard also hurts, key defender, and Tony Parker is playing through an injury as well

    no splitter, no green, no leonard, parker dinged up, might be just 50/50 this year, we'll see

    How will they fare?

    Well, read this and you can answer that for yourself:

    The San Antonio Spurs' injury list is becoming a growing concern as they begin a challenging three-game road trip at Atlanta on Friday. San Antonio lost defensive whiz Kawhi Leonard to a broken finger during Wednesday's 111-105 home loss to Oklahoma City, an injury the Spurs can hardly afford with center Tiago Splitter (sprained shoulder) and guard Danny Green (broken finger) already sidelined.

    The only possible games I see them losing is at

    1/26 Miami
    1/28 Houston
    2/6 Brooklyn (on a b2b coming from Washington)
    2/19 Portland (Definitely they lose this one, on a b2b coming from L.A.)
    2/21 Phoenix (Possible, last game of the trip)

    6 is the most. So I say they will go 50-50 this year.

    If they lose the next two to Atlanta and Heat the spurs probably won't go .500 over the next 16.

    Losing Kawhi is a big loss.

    Spurs could be the 4th seed by the end of this trip.

    The Spurs don't mind this trip as much as people think. Especially with injuries, they will use the time on the road to gain camaraderie.

    So they are ok with the 3rd or 4th seed versus the 1st or second seed? This rodeo road trip will decide their seed

    Call red cross. Manu probably misses entire road trip, and spurs can't beat bulls at home. Could be a tougher road trip than expected.

    Wrong, bulls are a scrappy team, and are "healthier" than the spurs

    Spurs look real bad
    Safe to say the dynasty coming to an end

    Massive fluke they lost to heat

    8-6 the first 14, 6-3 on the road trip. Pretty damned good.
