As usual, the San Antonio Spurs are hitting their stride before the post season.  Last night, they took the court without 2 of their stars.  The Spurs rested Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge after the team rallied in four straight games, including a pair of overtime victories.  At one point the Spurs were down by 28 points, but apparently that's no problem for a battle tested team.  Manu had 19 points and David Lee added 18 and 10 rebounds.  There Spurs were also lighting it up from beyond the arc, going 14-29.  San Antonio won its ninth straight and extended its league record for 50-win seasons to 18 straight, the longest in league history.  They are in striking distance for the best record in the league, only trailing Golden State by only 1.5 games.  The Spurs and Warriors will have and epic showdown Saturday night on ABC.  Go Spurs Go!
