Spurscast 361: Fundamental Onions

In Game Two of this San Antonio – Los Angeles series, Tim Duncan transformed into an omniscient ball of light and carried the Spurs to a 1-1 series tie. The Big Fundamental tallied 28 points (14-23 FG) along with 11 rebounds, 4 assists, and 2 steals. San Antonio had an incredibly disappointing outing in the opening game and was carried to victory in the second match by Mr. Duncan and the duo of Kawhi Leonard and Patty Mills. Homecourt advantage has swung but are the Spurs doomed by the bum legs of Tony Parker?



PS’ 2015 Playoff Preview — Spurscast 360: Go West, Old Men

The San Antonio Spurs ended the 2014-15 regular season in a rather anti-climatic fashion, unraveling on the road against the young New Orleans Pelicans. San Antonio had been on an impressive run through most of March and April and were looking at a golden opportunity to enter the post-season as the second seed in the West. All the Spurs needed to do was simply win. Instead they’ll enjoy the luxury of being the sixth seed and skip two time zones to take on the Los Angeles Clippers.

Spurscast 359: All Out of Bubblegum

The San Antonio Spurs are crushing teams and the last innocence of the human spirit. With only three games remaining in the regular season, the timing couldn’t be any better. But despite the incredible March/April run made by the defending the champs, home court might not be an option for the repeat title run. Still residing in the sixth spot, the Spurs are just a half game back from the second seed but will need assistance to get past tie-breakers to secure a higher seed.

Spurscast 358: Everyone Gets a Medal

The San Antonio Spurs have rattled off 15 wins out of their past 18 games and currently sit a half game back of the fifth-seeded Los Angeles Clippers. Even greener pastures lie just ahead as the Spurs are only two games back of both the second-seeded Memphis Grizzles and Houston Rockets. The chaotic winter seems ages ago but consistency doubts still linger in the minds of Spurs fans. Are the Spurs finally playing at a peak level or is there more to achieve?



Spurscast 357: Two-Face

Two impressive performances versus the Atlanta Hawks and Oklahoma City Thunder. Two equally embarrassing loses against the New York Knicks and Dallas Mavericks.

The 2014-2015 season for the San Antonio Spurs has been one of narratives. At first it was the question of effort and then it was the plague of injuries that essentially left Tim Duncan by his lonesome. The start of the new year was focused on chemistry and then whether or not Tony Parker was ready to be put out to pasture. And though the Spurs have recently churned out some incredible games, the new topic now is centered around the notion of consistency – or rather the lack thereof. With only eleven games remaining in the regular season, are the wild spikes of performances here to stay or is there another narrative around the corner?



Spurscast 356: Return of the Derp
