What to expect from the Spurs during the home stretch

The Spurs are not, technically speaking, out of the playoff race. One could easily imagine scenarios where the Silver and Black are able to climb back out of the 5 game hole they’ve dug for themselves with only 28 games to go.

Perhaps Ja Morant accidentally dunks the ball so hard that he creates a momentary tear in the fabric of space-time, which then sucks the entire Grizzlies franchise into an alternate universe. The league doesn’t currently have any rules concerning how the tiebreaker would work in such a scenario, so it seems reasonable to suggest the last playoff spot would go to a team that still exists, and maybe the Spurs could be that team (assuming they can catch the Trail Blazers, obviously).
