The Spurs saw their two-game win streak end versus the Bulls.
SAN ANTONIO — The San Antonio Spurs saw their two-game win streak come to an end, losing to the Chicago Bulls 122-116.
The Spurs recorded just eight turnovers and connected on 39% from the three-point line.
Victor Wembanyama did not play due to load management. Jeremy Sochan had 11 points and seven rebounds. Keldon Johnson added 26 points and four rebounds off the bench. Devin Vassell recorded five points in the win while Tre Jones added a career-high 30 points and nine rebounds to lead the team.
The Spurs are 7-31 on the season and will next visit the Atlanta Hawks on Monday.
Here’s a sample of what the teams said after the game.
Coach Gregg Popovich:
“We are showing more consistency. Down the stretch, experienced guys probably feel a little more comfortable shooting those threes, but we had the same ones. Eventually, they’ll fall.”
“We fought the entire night. We went down 16 and the bench came up huge for us, tied it and took the lead. They were playing great defense that led to offense. We continued to fight. We were hitting shots, they hit tough shots, and it was a back-and-forth game. We just didn’t hit enough to make it. It was a good showing for us to battle the way we did especially against a team like them.”
“We boxed out. We got rebounds. I know down the stretch Vucevic got two big rebounds but we took care of the glass in the second half. We were a lot more active. We just challenged ourselves, to be honest, and to have some pride and we made it a game. We’ll continue to stay positive. We will go over some film tomorrow make some corrections and get ready for the game in Atlanta. I definitely think we left it all out there tonight.”
“I think we are playing stylistically how I’d like to see us play, how I think the game should be played. We’re sharing the ball. We’re trying to generate shots. We’re scoring more points.”
“It always feels good to hit a big shot at the end of the game. I was really happy I made a shot, but I was more happy I helped us win a game. We came up with a big, big win for us on the road.”
