Gayby's Monday Musings: Spurs hold top spot in Western Conference


The calendar changed to 2011 and the San Antonio Spurs kept rolling, in Oklahoma City’s case — steamrolling. Lead by Duncan’s 21 points and 9 rebounds, the Spurs victory concocted several statistical appetizers, including the Spurs' largest margin of victory this season (27); the lowest point-total allowed by the stingy Spurs defense, and the lowest scoring output by the young-gunning Thunder at 74.

Holding down the number one spot in the NBA standings at 29-4, the Spurs begin a challenging road trip with a back-to-back Tuesday/Wednesday against the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics, respectively. Thirty-three games into the 2010-2011 season and the San Antonio Spurs have played a league-leading 21 home games.
