Lakers & Clippers Top Spurs Tickets In January

The Spurs welcome the New Year at home, playing in the AT&T Center on 31st December. Their next 3 games are also at home. The schedule for January is also rather favorable, with more games at home than on the road. Additionally, the Spurs have only 3 tough matchups in January, against the Bulls, Clippers and Blazers. They will play only 14 games in January, with only one back to back. In other words, January is the perfect month for Coach Pop to give some rest to his core players. Here is a look at Spurs Ticket prices for their games at the AT&T Center on the January Schedule.

Spurs vs Wizards, January 3, Average price $52

After two full days of rest, the Spurs welcome John Wall and the Wizards. Wall believes he and his buddy are the best back court duo in the league, but the “old school” guys from the Spurs execute the offense to perfection. It is good to get some lessons from time to time, and Wall might just be in for a treat. Spurs vs Wizards Tickets Starting price $27.00.

Spurs vs Pistons, January 6, Average price $29

As mentioned, the schedule is kind to the Spurs in January. They get two days rest again, and play the lowly Pistons. However, the Pistons can surprise from time to time, but they are still a lottery team. Their biggest weapon is the front court, where Andre Drummond is shaping into a real star. Add Monroe and Josh Smith, and Duncan might have to push a bit more and waste more energy this game.Spurs vs Pistons Tickets Starting price $7.00.

Spurs vs Suns, January 9, Average price $78

Phoenix is one of the few teams that have beaten the Spurs this season, and they always pose a challenge with their speed and tempo. Their three guard lineup can be problem for the Spurs defensively, but they can also exploit those matchups on offense, where Kawhi Leonard would be guarded by a point guard.Spurs vs Suns Tickets Starting price $16.00.

Spurs vs Blazers, January 16, Average price $62

The Spurs demolished the Blazers in the 2014 playoffs, and the Blazers run over the Spurs in their first duel this season. But now the Spurs are playing at home, and have one of the western conference rivals in the house. The game should be interesting, no question about it, but whether it will be a high scoring or a low scoring game, it depends on the Spurs.Spurs vs Trail Blazers Tickets Starting price $19.00.

Spurs vs Jazz, January 18, Average price $39

The Spurs tend to surprise everyone from time to time. Their loss this season to the Jazz can be attributed to those surprises. But while they can make a mistake once, they do not let the mistakes haunt them. The Jazz are a lottery team, and the Spurs would be wise to show their place.Spurs vs Trail Blazers Tickets Starting price $10.00.

Spurs vs Lakers, January 23, Average price $90

We won’t get many more Bryant vs Duncan duels. Therefore, it would be nice to cherish the duels of these two great players that marked the last two decades. The teams split the first two games this season, and this one is the deciding one. Not that it matters for tie breakers, since the Lakers are bound to miss the playoffs, but the Spurs need wins versus weak opponents to keep their high ranking and have home court advantage in the playoffs.Spurs vs Lakers Tickets Starting price $37.00.

Spurs vs Bucks, January 25, Average price $27

Too bad rookie Jabari Parker hurt his knee, and will miss the rest of the season. He could have picked some valuable lessons from Tim Duncan, and it is unknown whether he will get the same chance next year. The Bucks have some quality players, such as the Greek Freak and Brandon Knight to cause some damage, but without their rookie, they will be weaker.Spurs vs Bucks Tickets Starting price $8.00.

Spurs vs Hornets, Average price $49

The Hornets might be just what the Spurs need before they close out January with a duel with the Clippers. Big Al is the only problem for the Spurs, but they have quality defenders in the post that can contain Jefferson. Whether Lance Stephenson will be wearing a Hornets uniform by the time the matchup occurs, it is unknown. The Hornets are reportedly looking to trade him.Spurs vs Hornets Tickets Starting price $16.00.

Spurs vs Clippers, January 31, Average price $80

The first duel between the two was a low scoring game, with the Spurs managing to prevail 88-85. But both teams have since improved their play, and by the time the game is played, the teams might be in the top 4 in the West. The Spurs are ranked lower than the Clippers, but they are catching steam lately. The Clippers are also playing some inspiring basketball in December, but there is time till January.Spurs vs Clippers Tickets Starting price $35.00.

Memphis Grizzlies

NBAs biggest secret-Memphis and the Grizzlies

In big media companies, you are not allowed to write or speak about the Memphis Grizzlies.

“Nobody cares,” is the common refrain.

Well, it’s time to start caring, and we are going to bend over backwards to explain why that should be so.

First, the basketball part: The Grizzlies play in a division that is home to the NBA’s two hottest teams, the other being the Houston Rockets, who also have won seven straight games. Memphis pulled off an amazing comeback last night to keep their streak alive, rallying from 16 points down in the fourth quarter to defeat the Golden State Warriors 91-90.

Second, the non-basketball part.

If you attend a game in Memphis, you can exit the arena and walk two short blocks to Beale Street, where you can listen to outstanding live music seven nights a week while downing a 32-ounce coldie that’ll set you back a mere $2.

If you are lucky, the Grizzlies dance team will stop by your juke joint and join you for a beverage. And as my friend and colleague Frank Isola of the New York Daily News so astutely observed and tweeted last season, there is no better assemblage of fine young women representing an NBA team than the members of that particular dance team.

Third, if you have an off-night in Memphis, you can get in your rental car, drive south into Mississippi toward the Tunica Casino and Resort and motor through miles and miles of soybean fields before your senses awake. You can smell it a mile away: Fried chicken.
And if you stop at that chicken stand out in the middle of nowhere, you will eat what Colonel Sanders is secretly chowing down on in heaven. Man, it’s manna, I tell you.
But those last two items are not the reason you are here for your daily update.

So let’s get back to the basketball, and take a closer look at what the Grizzlies pulled off last night in Oakland. After scoring a mere 35 points in the first half while playing their third game in four nights, the Grizzlies erupted for 39 in the fourth quarter to defeat the Warriors 91-90, coming back from a 20-point deficit in the final 15 1/2 minutes.

“We were dead in the water in the first half. We had no answers,” coach Lionel Hollins said. “We don’t quit; we fight. We did that, and we were able to come back and get this win, which is a sweet win.”

It would be a disservice to the Rockets to continue this conversation without including them next. They play in a sprawling metropolis with no zoning rules, which is why you can drive to the far corners of the city and stumble upon one or two 50-story skyscrapers that would seem to have no business being there. For miles around, the next tallest buildings are two-story strip malls.

Back when Jeff Van Gundy was coaching the Rockets, I was working down in Houston and was stopped at a red light when who should pull up in the next lane? None other that JVG himself. “Worst traffic city in America,” Van Gundy observed. “New York has nothing on this place.”

Anyway, it was McHale appreciation night (NOT!) in Minneapolis last night, and the crowd booed McHale lustily during introductions before McHale got the last laugh with a 107-92 victory over the Timberwolves, who got 39 points from Kevin Love (5-for-5 on 3-pointers) and 12 more assists from Ricky Rubio.
The Rockets’ seven-game winning streak has only moved them into fourth-place in the Southwest Division, where they still trail the Grizzlies, Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio.

The Spurs were only 1-6 entering their game against the lowly Hornets, but Tim Duncan turned back the clock and scored a season-high 28 points — the final two coming from just inside the foul line off an inbounds play for the game-winning points with 1.4 seconds left. “It was a mix of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and Magic Johnson, a kind of sky-hook, and we’ll take it,” Tony Parker said of Duncan’s 13-foot game-winner over New Orleans Hornets center Emeka Okafor. Parker added 20 points and a career-high 17 assists.
