What We Learned from the Spurs final game of the season

All I could think about as the buzzer sounded was, “Yea, that seems about right.” The San Antonio Spurs squeezed about everything they could out of this particular orange and at the end of the day it just wasn’t quite enough to keep going. That’s fine. That’s okay. We were always sort of banking on a miracle to come around and, frankly, I’m glad we didn’t waste one here. You only get so many as a franchise.

San Antonio Spurs: Play, sit, or let go, 2022 edition

In a less-than-surprising result, the San Antonio Spurs' season came to an end Wednesday night in Memphis. It was the Spurs' season-long struggles that did them in by the game's end, as they struggled mightily from the 3-point line, couldn't box out for an entire half, and demonstrated inconsistency throughout.

NBA play-in tournament predictions, picks: Warriors-Lakers, Wizards-Celtics, Hornets-Pacers, Grizzlies-Spurs

In a season filled with countless injuries and COVID-related absences, a condensed schedule and arenas largely devoid of fans, it's only fitting that the postseason begins under similarly unprecedented circumstances. While the NBA used a smaller version of the play-in concept last season in the Orlando bubble, this season marks the true beginning of the play-in era. Eight teams are fighting for four spots in two conferences. The play-in round as a whole will feature the defending champions, three former league MVPs and nine recent All-Stars. It's been a long and winding road to get to the postseason, but these appetizers were well worth the wait.

What we learned from the Spurs loss to the Suns

Let the record show that on May the 15th, 2021, the San Antonio Spurs lost to Phoenix Suns in spectacular fashion, and no one really cared. I say this not as an indictment, but as an admission of my own guilt. Distracted in the extreme, I watched the Suns slap the Silver and Black around like an unwanted stepchild as if I were watching myself watch the game from outside my own body.
