The Spurs are 814-815 all-time on the road, and can get to .500 win a victory here over the Chicago Bulls. San Antonio pulled that off, it would be the only NBA franchise currently at .500 or better on the road all-time, per Elias.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said when they first brought in Kawhi Leonard, they wanted him to study Michael Jordan: "One of the first things we did when he came really was we got him Michael Jordan clips. Not to watch Michael's amazing ability, but his fundamental sense of the game. He never really got credit for that because he's an amazing athlete. He can do this, he can jump, he learned how to shoot better. His fundamentals were magnificent; the way he posted, the way he pivoted, inside pivot, outside pivot, his rocker step, his ability to pump fake, to move…he was brilliant in his fundamentals, and it made him great along with his ability. Kobe [Bryant] was a bit like that too. Kobe has great footwork with everything he did, and I wanted Kawhi to see that. So he spent a lot of time trying to mimic that, and he's done a good job of it. He's got a great work ethic. Chad Forcier, who's with Orlando now and Chip Engelland were paramount in his improvement."
