San Antonio Spurs: 99 Problems but a Ring Ain't One. 5 Ways to Earn 5th Ring

You will need to flash back to the 1996-7 season to find the last time the Spurs have lost five straight games.  As a matter of fact, the Spurs have lost a total of five games at home all season, coming off last night's tough loss to the Boston Celtics 107-97 at home.  

Worried? A little.  

The Spurs still sit on top of the Western Conference in the No. 1 spot, but are now only 2.5 games ahead of the two-time defending champions Lakers, who are fresh off beating the Mavericks 110-82 at home last night. 

Tonight, the Spurs travel to face their I-10 rivals, the Houston Rockets, a team who is struggling to obtain that coveted eighth and final spot in the playoffs, and are only 3 games back behind the Phoenix Suns.  You can count on a playoff atmosphere tonight, with both teams having so much on the line. 

While the Spurs are indeed in a slump, Spurs fans should not panic. 

Why?

It is still the regular season.  We are still the top seed.  Our players are now back on the court.  And there are things we can still improve on.  

Let me give you five of them.
