SAN ANTONIO - The San Antonio Spurs faced a crushing loss Monday night to the Houston Rockets, and local fans have advice for the home team before Game 2.
In game one of the second round of the NBA Playoffs, the Rockets had a whopping 27 point victory on the Spurs' court. They're now also leading the series.
"They would win more if they pick their defense up a lot and they put Tony Parker in more," Spurs fan David Lara, said.
Despite the loss, fans said they're not worried moving forward and believe the Spurs will prevail in game two.
"Kawhi is Kawhi," Dax Moreno, a Spurs fan, said. "He's our MVP. He's going to take this series over and show James Harden who the real MVP is."
However, Rockets fans in S.A. said they had no doubt their team would take home the win in Monday's game.
"[I] felt like the Rockets played really well, definitely above average," Armin Almassi, a Rockets fan, said. "I feel like if they play like that, they could beat any team in the NBA hands down."
The Spurs are set to play the Rockets again on Wednesday evening.
