Welcome to the Game Thread. Veterans of the Game Thread know how we do things around here, but for all you newbies we have a few rules. Our community guidelines apply and basically say be cool, no personal attacks, don’t troll and don’t swear too much.
The Spurs missed the playoffs this year, but both coaches tonight have history in San Antonio, with Monte Williams and Mike Budenholzer having spent time in the Spurs organization. The only former Spurs player on the court tonight will be Bryn Forbes, taking some long range shots in limited minutes off the bench.
