Spurs Set to Battle Rockets in Game 5

By Don Morgan and Bill O’Neil

The Spurs are set to square off with the Houston Rockets in Game 5 of their Round 2 series Tuesday Night.

Spurs all-time great David Robinson has his fingers crossed–but sees some lacking consistency of late in the Silver and black.

“We should win… we’ve worked hard all year long to get the home court advantage–we should be able to go out there and take advantage of it” Robinson said, adding “Are we going to? I don’t know–that’s a pretty good team over there. This is where the playoffs get really sticky because every team is going to be good.”

Robinson believes the team is lacking something in leadership on the heels of Tim Duncan’s retirement.

“We’re counting on a lot of guys to grow up and mature and take over some of that leadership–and that’s not easy as you can see. As you watch the games… everybody is like… where’s the leadership? The leadership walked out the door last year, and now we’ve got to figure out how to replace it” Robinson said.

The Spurs and Rockets head in to Game 5 tied at two games apiece. Tip off Tuesday is set for 7 PM at the AT&T Center.
