Spurs Pre-Season Opener

Finally, we can have our first glimpse at our new-look Spurs. And since it's a pre-season game, most of our starters might play limited minutes or not at all. But just the same, Spurs fans should get excited to see how our new additions and young guns will pan out. I expect to see more minutes for Hill, Blair, Ian, Hairston, Jerrells, Dwayne Jones, Marcus Haislip, Williams, Bogans and maybe Jefferson or Mason. Game time is at 8:30 ET, while we wait for the game, please check out this nice pre-game preview from Tim C. at Pounding the Rock and this pre-game thoughts from Graydon Gordian at 48 Minutes of Hell.

We had a live chat during the game, unfortunately; the Spurs dropped their pre-season opener 99-85 against the Rockets, but it's a preseason game (although I liked the Spurs to win). The Spurs rested TD, Tony, Finley, McDyess and Ratliff. Blair was a beast, Hill looked solid, Manu is still out of shape and Bonner, and Hairston played pretty well.
