One could argue that the San Antonio Spurs' recent shortcomings should be a cause of worry, but common sense might suggest otherwise.
There's no denying that the team's recent play hasn't been on par with its usual consistent dominance; however, the issues have coincided with countless injuries, which should be targeted as the prime reason for this recent setback.
The silver (and black) lining to this hapless twist of luck, though, can be seen in the exposure that certain individual players have been given.
Whether it's the continued development of Patty Mills or the astonishing upward trend of Tim Duncan, the roster is overstocked with growing weapons from top to bottom. While the Spurs may have hit a bump in the road, the collective talent promises a strong return following the upcoming intermission.
