The San Antonio Spurs (4-22) are set to face off against the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night in what will be their final meeting of the regular season. The Spurs are coming off a road loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, with a final score of 132-119.
In the previous game, the Spurs were without Victor Wembanyama due to right ankle soreness. However, Zach Collins stepped up and contributed 22 points and eight rebounds to help the team. Jeremy Sochan also had a solid performance with nine points and 11 rebounds. Keldon Johnson led the team with 28 points and 12 rebounds, while Devin Vassell recorded 17 points in the loss.
After the game, Collins expressed his disappointment with the team’s slow start, stating, “I think we were just asleep for probably the first four minutes. It didn’t help that we couldn’t hit a shot, but I think our mindset just from the jump wasn’t good. We have to be more professional and start games better, because we played pretty well the rest of the way. That hurts when all we had to do was start a little bit better. Be more aggressive.”
In terms of injury updates, Devin Vassell is questionable for the upcoming game against the Bulls. However, Keldon Johnson and Victor Wembanyama are still listed as probable.
The Spurs will be wearing their Association Edition jerseys for the game in Chicago. This information was shared by JeffGSpursKENS5 on Twitter.
