Power Rankings, Week 15: Home isn’t sweet for the Spurs

Scott Wachter-USA TODAY Sports A rough homestand finally comes to an end. The saying Home Sweet Home doesn’t apply to this 9 game homestand that the San Antonio Spurs will be finishing this week. In the 8 games already played, the Spurs have gone a miserable 2-8. The loss of LaMarcus Aldridge and the addition (and subsequent loss due to an injured shoulder) of Gorgui Dieng hasn’t helped. After Monday night’s last home game, the Spurs will be headed out on a 5 game road trip. Considering they have been better away than at home, here’s hoping the Silver and...

It’s the NBA trade deadline, probably one of the best days of the season for Twitter GMs that love running the trade machine. For the Memphis Grizzlies, it remains pretty simple.
