The San Antonio Spurs are on a terrific run just now, winning 14 straight to put them top of the Western Conference.
Overcoming difficult opponents in recent weeks they have produced some of their best basketball this season.
And all, it seems, despite having to deal with some paranormal activity on their recent road trip.
As reported by San-Antonio Express-News, both Tim Duncan and Jeff Ayres were freaked out after a night at the Claremont Resort in Berkley ahead of the Spurs' game against Golden State Warriors:
"I get to my door, and my key doesn't work, but it sounds like there's somebody in my room," explained Ayres.
"Like I hear a little baby, not crying but making noise. I'm like, 'What the heck?' I keep trying my key and it doesn't work."
"It was the creepiest thing. I heard a couple of other guys heard babies in the hallway, kids running down the hallway. Creepy. I really heard voices and a baby in the room, and there wasn't anybody in there."
Spooky indeed. And veteran Duncan backs up his teammates story.
"I heard a baby in his room.
"When they told me the story the next day about calling up there and no one in the room, it's at that point you get chills," said a clearly flustered Duncan.
The Spurs obviously managed to put thoughts of ghosts and ghouls to the back of their minds as they overcame the Warriors 99-90 last week.
But Duncan is planning on a new location when they are next in the Bay Area:
"I heard about the history of the place, and I'd rather not (stay there again)," said the 37-year old.
