The 5 Biggest Concerns for San Antonio Spurs Before 2014 Playoffs
Mark Duncan/Associated Press

Beyond the ebbs and flows and inconsistent rotations, the San Antonio Spurs have been trying to establish some sort of identity as the team heads into the final 22 games of the regular season. And that seems a bit weird, as unfamiliarity is the last thing you'd associate with this team in terms of in-house problems.

But with all the absences due to injury and inconsistent play from some of the featured players, questions abound as to whether this team can make the kind of playoff run we've come to expect.

Will the defense regain its championship-level form? Will the Spurs find a way to once again be dominant on the defensive glass?

Can they begin forcing turnovers the way they did last season? And perhaps most importantly, can the starting lineup find its groove again offensively?

Relatively speaking, these questions are small potatoes when compared to those surrounding the New York Knicks, Los Angeles Lakers and Philadelphia 76ers. But they're questions nonetheless, and if San Antonio doesn't answer them sufficiently, it might be toast come playoff time.
