Matt Bonner: It's going to be hard for the Spurs to reach playoffs

The San Antonio Spurs currently sit in the 10th spot in the West standings at 23-31 at the All-Star break.

They completed the first leg of the annual Rodeo Trip with a 1-5 record and have two more road games against Utah and Oklahoma City before returning to the AT&T Center to host the Mavericks.

In a nutshell, the team has not had a great 2019-20 season with a handful of losing streak, blown leads and more losses than the franchise is accustomed to.

However, the Spurs are still in the playoff race and a berth in the 2020 postseason is within reach but it won't be easy according to former Spur Matt Bonner.

Bonner was a guest on ESPN San Antonio's "The Blitz" and weighed in on the Spurs' playoff hopes.

"It's going to be hard for them to make the playoffs," Bonner said. "There's still a chance though. I'm a Spur for life so as long they're not mathematically eliminated I'm going to be optimistic and be pulling for them."

The Blazers hold the regular-season tie-breaker versus the Spurs, San Antonio has a tough schedule coming out of the break and Memphis is clicking winning seven out of their last 10 games.

The Spurs will need to rattle off wins and need some help in the second-half of the season if they want to make it an NBA-record 23-consecutive postseason appearances.

Bonner also weighed in on the Spurs not making a move at the 2020 NBA Trade Deadline saying he was both not surprised and surprised San Antonio didn't make a move.

It's easy from a fan standpoint or from the outside looking in to be 'The Spurs should have done this or they should have traded that guy or should have made this move!'
The reality is we don't know if there were any deals presented or if there were any opportunities.
