San Antonio Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs are looking for another deep playoff run this season. A lot of that has to do with how forward LaMarcus Aldridge plays this year. He is ups for contract talks right now.
So far Aldridge has underachieved as a Spur, but head coach Gregg Popovitch has came out publicly apologizing for how he tried the change his all star forward. Hopefully now, the Spurs get Aldridge back to all NBA form.
The Spurs are without one of the top three players in the NBA. Kawhi Leonard will be out with a quadriceps injury for an extended period. He has been limited in practice.
The Spurs won their first game of the season, against a tough Timberwolves team on the road. The defense played well without Leonard. Holding Minnesota to 43.5 percent from the field.
Aldridge led the Spurs with 25 points and 10 rebounds in the win. Rudy Gay chipped in 14 points and Danny Green finished with 17 points on 3 of 7 shooting from three point land.
The Chicago Bulls have a lot going on outside of play on the court. The Bulls Bobby Portis punched Nikola Mirotic and broke his jaw. They go into an altercation at practice before the season started.
Portis was suspended eight games for the incident. Mirotic will be out with a broken jaw. Besides the incident, where do the Bulls turn for scoring and offensive leadership?
Rookie power forward, Lauri Markkanen has a ton of upside. He finished with 17 points and eight rebounds. Veteran center Robin Lopez finished with 18 points and eight rebounds
The Bulls allowed the Raptors to shoot 47 percent from the field. They also were out rebounded 39 to 49. A large part had to do with the loss of Portis and Mirotic.
