Spurs had their worst game of the season to the Knicks 128-115, and lost in a heartbreaking fashion to the Celtics 103-105.

Should they be worrying right now? Are they still the Best Team in the league? Their Record was 29-4. Their Two game losing streak is half of their total losses, after thirty three Games. A couple of days ago they were mostly on top of everyone's Power Rankings List, now where are they?

I can't imagine people's reaction if they lose 2 more in a row...

The second game was against another elite team and a proven one at that. It was also in Boston and the game was close, it wasn't a blowout. And losing to the Knicks isn't a calamity like it used to be in past seasons.

They'll be fine.

Definitely top 2 at the moment, but with less than 35 games into the season....doesnt matter much.

It's only 2 games, relax.

Just like with the Knicks beating the Spurs, simply one game that isn't indicative of what will happen later in the season or during the playoffs.

I think a fully healthy Celtics team is the best team in the NBA. Followed closely by Miami and San Antonio.

I never thought it was conclusive and beyond question that they were the best team. They had the best record, but does that mean they're the best team?

Spurs played almost twice more games at home than away.
Celtics is the best team when everyone is healthy.

Celtics are best team. Spurs was never the best team.

They were never the best team in the NBA. Boston was always better, and I still believe the Lakers are a superior squad, also. I'd probably place the Spurs third, though. They are a very, very good team regardless of what happened in their past two games.

Celts then Spurs/Heat are playing the best right now.

yeah it depends what we consider the "best team" to be... I mean right now, they have the best record so i guess we can call them the best team, but come playoffs we know that the Lakers and Celtics are basically built for the postseason.

best record and best team doesnt always mean the same. Boston, when healthy is the best and most dangerous team in the league. After that lost in the finals these guys are hungry and will not let anything come in there way come playoff time. I dont like boston but i cant knock how good they really are

Lakers are the best team. 2 time defending champs last time i seen. i do love how all the heat fans say the celtics though because the celts have whooped there *** 2 times this year.

Celtics were given a gift playing us twice in November, when were suppose to suck and had no clue what we were doing out there. Completely different team now man. I wasn't one of them choosing the Celtics. I still think that until they're knocked off, the Lakers are still the best team in the NBA.
