Apologies for the skimpy list this week. Holiday obligations coupled with a best friend’s wedding (photo evidence, above) hampered my basketball pulse-taking abilities. Eight and counting - The San Antonio Spurs remain atop the Western Conference with an NBA best record of 23-3. Winners of eight straight, the Spurs take on the new-look .500 Phoenix Suns tonight at the AT&T Center. On Saturday, the Suns acquired Vince Carter, Mickael Pietrus, and Marcin Gortat from the Orlando Magic in exchange for Hedo Turkoglu and Jason Richardson. Upcoming schedule
  • Tonight - Home versus Phoenix Suns @7:30 PM (Fox Sports Southwest)
  • Wednesday - Home versus Denver Nuggets @ 7:30 PM (Fox Sports Southwest)
  • Thursday- Away versus Orlando Magic @ 7:00 PM (TNT)
  • Sunday- Home versus Washington Wizards @ 6:00 PM (Fox Sports Southwest)
