Spurscast 330: A Different Mountain

Through two games of the Western Conference Finals, the San Antonio Spurs have simply obliterated the Oklahoma City Thunder by an average of 26 points. The series resumes in Oklahoma this Sunday and it will likely be a night of desperate play by the Serge Ibaka-less Thunder. The Thunder were able to conquer a 0-2 mountain back in the 2012 Conference Finals, winning four straight through physical athleticism and stifling defense. But this is 2014 and these teams are hardly comparable to the squads that clashed in the recent lockout season. This is not the same mountain.

[Update: Serge Ibaka's status has been upgraded to "day-to-day." Whether the Thunder exaggerated the grade 2 sprain or Ibaka's body just recovered quicker than anticipated, we'll never know.]

Hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) take an in-depth look at the first two games and jabber on about what adjustments either team might make. It’s the one and only Spurscast. The original Spurs Podcast.

Spurscast 329: Western Conference Finals Preview

It’s a rematch of the 2012 Western Conference Finals and the San Antonio Spurs are hoping to return the favor against the wounded Oklahoma City Thunder. How does the loss of Serge Ibaka impact the series? Just how important is Tony Parker’s hamstring and could it alone kill the Spurs title hopes?

Hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) break it all down and predict who will be moving on to the NBA Finals. It’s the one and only Spurscast. The original Spurs Podcast.

Spurscast 328: Gentleman’s Sweep?

The Portland Trailblazers avoided elimination on Monday night, out-hustling the San Antonio Spurs 103-92 in front of their raucous Portland crowd. The series the resumes back home today in the Alamo City but will the Spurs be able to resume their dominance on the court? The Oklahoma City and Los Angeles series appears that it may go the distance but who do the Spurs match up better against?

Also on Episode 328: The Eastern series, Donald Sterling is beyond insane, Van Gundy’s new gig, George Karl’s next gig, and the Steve Kerr media circus. Hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) break it all down for you. It’s the one and only Spurscast. The original Spurs Podcast.

Spurscast 327: Old Guys Win Again

So who among you predicted an absolute rout of the Portland Trailblazers*? The San Antonio Spurs embarrassed the visiting Trailblazers 116-92 this past Tuesday, making it essentially an encore of their impressive series-clinching performance against the Dallas Mavericks. Damian Lillard and company looked rattled against the Spurs all-out attack and trailed by double-digits for over 90% of the game. Many had this series pegged as yet another tough battle but did the results of the opening game change anyone’s prediction?

Also on Episode 327: R.C. Buford, Charles Barkley, the tired narrative of age, and the continued glorification of Aron Baynes. Hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) break it all down for you. Heck, they even use crayons and small words. It’s the one and only Spurscast. The original Spurs Podcast.

Spurscast 326: Back to Reality

The San Antonio Spurs have climbed back from an unexpected 1-2 deficit and are now one victory away from moving on to the Western Conference Semi-Finals. What finally went right for the Spurs that wasn’t happening in the first three games of the series? Who is the series MVP so far and who has yet to show up to the post-season? We take another look around the Western Conference playoffs and we also try to make sense of the Bizarro Universe that exists inside DeJuan Blair’s head.

Stephen Anderson (@andersonstevem) once again joins hosts Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) and Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) to hash it all out.

Spurscast 325: What..?

Much to almost everyone’s surprise, the San Antonio Spurs have given up home court advantage to their hated I-35 rival, the Dallas Mavericks. The Mavs have looked the better of the two squads through nearly 8 quarters of play but the Spurscast still thinks this series belongs to the Spurs. The guys slam San Antonio’s early effort and take a look around the league at the other higher seeds that also can’t seem to walk and talk at the same time. Plus a short rant on why Phil Jackson doesn’t know what he is talking about.

Stephen Anderson (@andersonstevem) rejoins hosts Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) and Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) to try and make sense of the chaos.

The real NBA season has finally arrived much to the relief of anxious San Antonio Spurs fans. To no one’s surprise, the Western Conference is loaded with heavyweights and the Spurs’ path back to the NBA Finals will not be an easy one.

Spurscast 323: Almost there…

The 2014 NBA postseason is only five days away and the San Antonio Spurs have locked up home court advantage throughout the playoffs. While the Spurs are only two victories away from setting a new franchise season record, the squad is more focused on reaching the sweet number of “sixteen.” The Western Conference path is shaping up to be drastically less friendly than last season’s but the stops along the way have still yet to be finalized. Meanwhile, the Eastern Conference is pretty much locked in. The Indiana Pacers are one win or Miami Heat loss away from locking up the top seed in the East. We’ll take a look at each Eastern playoff series and predict how everything will shake out.

Also on episode #323: The Legend of Dirk Nowitzki, the day the Spurs World almost ended, and role players who need to step up to the post-season challenge.

Spurscast 322: Stretch Run

[UPDATE: Apologies for the file issues. I completely screwed up the upload and the steps to resolving the matter were taking forever.]

The winning streak ends at 19 after a frustrating loss on the road to the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Spurs were swept by the Thunder in the regular season but how much does this matter come playoff time? How will Coach Popovich approach the rest and injury issue for the remainder of the season?

Also on episode #322: Will the Indiana Pacers end their chaotic collapse? The roster will soon be trimmed for the post-season but which bench players will miss out?

Spurscast 321: Making History

The San Antonio Spurs make it 17 straight victories by handling the short-handed New Orleans Pelicans over the weekend. The club has a shot at passing the current franchise high water mark this evening when they visit the Indiana Pacers’ gym. The Spurs also face the second-best team in the Western Conference, the Oklahoma City Thunder, this Thursday. Will the Spurs winning streak come to an end on the road against Indiana or Oklahoma City? Or will the somewhat forgotten Golden State Warriors, who visit the AT&T Center in between those two, lay waste to the record? (more…)

Spurscast 320: Going Streaking

Despite resting Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili, the Silver and Black keep the winning streak rolling with the victory at Golden State. Now at thirteen consecutive victories, where does the streak most likely come to an end? The San Antonio Spurs are also knocking on the door of history with a road record of 27-8. With only six more road games in the regular season, can the Spurs set a new franchise road record?

Also on episode #320: Looking back at the injury-ridden start to 2014, the greatness of Timmy, Manu, and Tony Parker, and the scary future without the Big Three. Stephen Anderson (@andersonstevem) once again joins hosts Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) and Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) to discuss all of this and more on the one and only Spurscast.

Spurscast 319: All Out of Bubblegum…

The San Antonio Spurs have been rolling since the return of Kawhi Leonard. Now on an eight-game win streak, the Spurs have taken sole possession of the top record in the NBA. Of course, it helps to have the other title contenders battling through slumps. Can the Spurs hold on to the top playoff seed in the NBA or even the Western Conference? Why are the other top-tier teams struggling?

Spurscast #318: Stretch Run

After forever and a decade, the San Antonio Spurs are finally back at full strength. The good news comes at a great time as the Spurs are only 22 games away from their 17th consecutive post-season appearance. March is a relatively relaxed month for the squad but they do have tough test tonight against the […]

Spurscast #317: Austin Daye, Trade Deadline, and Patty ‘Thrills’

The NBA trade deadline has finally passed and the San Antonio Spurs actually decided to pull the trigger on a trade – just not that one everyone thought they might do. Nando De Colo is gone and 2009 first-round pick Austin Daye is now a part of the Silver and Black. How will this move […]

Spurscast #316: Battered and Bruised

The 38-15 San Antonio Spurs have now entered the NBA’s symbolic halftime of the 2013-14 season and not a moment too soon. With injuries still a heavy burden and the importance of playoff seeding growing, the tired Spurs roster needs every minute of rest they can get. Spurscast #316 looks at the first left of the […]
