It’s time for the Spurs to start over without Gregg Popovich

  It’s time for the Spurs to start over without Gregg Popovich The San Antonio Spurs have not been relevant in the NBA title conversation since winning 61 games back in 2016-17. Since then, they have been disposed of in the first round of the playoffs in two consecutive seasons. Now on a downward spiral without a clear direction to move forward, it’s time for San Antonio to start over with a rebuild that does not include one Gregg Popovich. © David Richard-USA TODAY Sports The big picture: This is not about Pop and the success he’s had. It’s not about the Association somehow moving on from his old-school ways.

Instead, the Kings walked away with a huge victory . Buddy Hield scored a season-high 35 points, Richaun Holmes hit two free throws with 13.3 seconds left to give Sacramento the lead, and the Kings snapped the Celtics ’ winning streak at 10 games Sunday with a 100 - 99 victory at Golden 1 Center.

Richaun Holmes hit a pair of go-ahead free throws with 13.3 seconds left as the host Sacramento Kings ended the Boston Celtics ' 10 - game winning streak with a 100 - 99 victory Sunday afternoon. Buddy Hield led all scorers with 35 points and hit seven 3-pointers, as the Kings won for the fifth time.

Hield had 16 points on 7-for-11 shooting to lead Sacramento over the first two quarters.

Boston didn’t have a player crack double figures in scoring in the first half and helped Sacramento by committing 11 turnovers, which the Kings converted into 13 points.

TIP-INS

Celtics: According to STATS, Boston was just the second team in NBA history to rattle off 10 wins in a row after losing its opener, joining the 1979-80 Milwaukee Bucks.

Kings: Coach Luke Walton didn’t offer much reaction to the NBA announcing that a key foul on Barnes on Friday, which sent LeBron James to the line to sink two free throws that helped the Lakers pull out the win, should have been called an offensive foul on James. “I don’t care, I don’t look at it,” Walton said. “Our mindset is ‘What’s next? What are we doing next?’”

UP NEXT

Celtics: Boston continues its four-game road swing through the West with a Monday night matchup at Phoenix.

Kings: Sacramento returns to the court Tuesday to host the Suns, who will be on the second night of a back-to-back stretch.
