With the loss, the Spurs are now 12-25 overall on the season. They are 5-12 away from home and hit a bit of a stumbling block despite not playing that badly over the last few weeks. The Spurs were 6-18 about a month ago but have been much more respectable over the last four weeks. The Nets were clearly in over their heads against the Nets but have easier teams coming up in New York and Detroit.
