Bringing Back Patty Mills A Wise Decision By San Antonio Spurs

San Antonio Spurs

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

The San Antonio Spurs are fresh off of an NBA title. The Spurs haven’t gotten the best news today in terms of injuries, but luckily there is plenty of time left before the season starts. The main thing is they are bringing back key players for another championship run. Patty Mills is reportedly one of them. Wise decision, San Antonio.

Although Mills is Tony Parker‘s backup, he still gets his fair share of playing time. He averaged a little under 20 minutes per game during the season and around 15 minutes per game during the playoffs. Not to mention, he was a very productive player for the Spurs.

Mills averaged 10.2 points per game during the regular season. However, it is important to note that he put up 14 points against the Miami Heat in Game 4. Oh yeah, he followed that up with a 17-point performance in Game 5.

The Spurs do not rely on one single player and that was evident in the playoffs. A number of different players have to step up for this team to be successful, but that was clearly not a problem all season long — team had the best record and won the championship.

San Antonio plays very unselfish basketball and everyone is there for the team, not just themselves.

Who knows what will become of Mills’ latest injury, but the Spurs are doing the right thing by bringing back their backup point guard. He is a key piece who will definitely help them make a run for a second straight title.

Stephen Curry Puts On A Clinic Against Spurs

Well, the game was enthralling, but not very competitive. Stephen Curry put on a clinic, and was dribbling circles around the Spurs throughout. Here's some evidence. If that floater wasn't epic enough, in the second-half Curry added this drive in which he pulled the magic out on Jonathon Simmons.
