The road has not been kind to the San Antonio Spurs of late, where they have suffered a rash of losses.
The Spurs are producing an uncharacteristic showing in road games with a 10-14 record heading into Wednesday's visit to the Brooklyn Nets, whom they rarely lose to.
Getting road wins have been more difficult this season for the Spurs (29-16), who rarely have played with a complete lineup. San Antonio went 4-5 on the road until Tony Parker made his season debut Nov. 27, and split their first 12 road games until Kawhi Leonard returned Dec. 12 at Dallas.
Leonard's return occurred in a 95-89 loss and it is among six road losses to teams with losing records for the Spurs, who head into Brooklyn following a 102-99 loss at Atlanta in a game that occurred three days after a 93-81 road loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.
Leonard did not play in either game as the team tries to manage his shoulder injury. Leonard missed three games before scoring 19 points in Saturday's 32-point win over Denver but was rested Monday when the Spurs blew a 14-point lead. >> Read more
