The article focuses on a trip undertaken by the basketball team San Antonio Spurs. The San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo, held around the AT&T Center, runs for nearly three weeks, and for the members of the Spurs that means a killer road trip. This year, it's an eight-game trip, and San Antonio has five to go heading into the All-Star break. Coach Gregg Popovich has mastered the trip, using it to solidify his lineup. One can expect Popovich to settle roles for his reserves and get the team to play with better focus.
