After years of feasting on inferior Eastern Conference foes, the Spurs head into their Monday night matchup against the Celtics with a subpar record against Eastern opponents this season. San Antonio’s struggles versus the East include a pair of groan-inducing losses to the Chicago Bulls and Orlando Magic at the AT&T Center.

Despite a slow start, Boston remains a formidable opponent with a generational talent in Kyrie Irving at the point. Earlier this month, San Antonio’s full potential was on display in a signature win against the upstart Philadelphia 76ers. Consistency remains key for a Spurs unit whose defensive deficiencies have led to critical lapses throughout this campaign. With the return of Kawhi Leonard looming on the schedule, a revival of defensive form would be a welcome resolution for the Spurs.



$37-$1,800, Mon Dec. 31, 6pm, AT&T Center, One AT&T Center Pkwy., (210) 444-5000, attcenter.com.
