In their past three games, the San Antonio Spurs have allowed opponents to shoot 49.6% against lowly teams such as the Minnesota Timberwolves, Dallas Mavericks, and Cleveland Cavaliers.
None of those teams will be postseason bound (including the Mavericks who are trailing by four games behind the eighth seed). These are opponents the Spurs should be handling easily with their depth and versatility on both ends of the floor.
