Found March 18, 2013 on Waiting For Next Year:
[San Antonio] didn’t give it to us easy. In the fourth quarter especially in the last five or six minutes and that’s about it. They’ve won four championships. [...] I think [the Spurs] are the best team in the league. I don’t know if they’re going to win it. They have the best talent and the best coach, so they have a great shot at winning another championship. I think for us, we played this game really well. I think if we would have had this type of effort last night we would’ve won that game. Again, this is another growing experience. We have to come with this effort every night. We have to continue to learn from our mistakes and get tired of losing. We just have to bring it. – Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Bryon Scott following the team’s Saturday evening loss to the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs are presently 24 percentage points behind the Miami Heat for best record in the NBA. The Heat, conversely, are also in the midst of a 22-game winning streak and will visit Cleveland on Wednesday. [Related: Defense remains an issue, Cavs fall to Spurs 119-113]

Popovich Doesn't Want 20-Game Win Streak Again

The media world is hung up on the Miami Heat's 22-game winning streak. The San Antonio Spurs were in that territory last season, but had the majority of that streak in the playoffs.

Defense remains an issue, Cavs fall to Spurs 119-113

This happened a lot. Offensively, the Cavs were great. They scored 61 points in the first half, had 90 at the end of three periods and shot over 50% for the game. Unfortunately, those same stats could’ve also be used to describe the Spurs’ Saturday night. The Spurs’ offense is incredible.
