When looking back at game one for the umpteenth time, there was a sudden realization. It was the very first game of the 2014 playoffs. Teams will have to adjust to the sudden change in the way the game gets played. Defense gets amped up a bit. The best players play more minutes. Coaches get […]
The San Antonio Spurs (1-0) will look to take a commanding lead over the Dallas Mavericks (0-1) tonight in Game 2 of their first-round playoff series. The Spurs narrowly took Game 1 winning 90-85. The Spurs went on a 19-4 run to close the game and cruise to the win. Tim Duncan scored a game-high 27 points […]
The 2013-14 regular season is over. The Spurs won 62 games. They had two winning streaks of 10+ games or more — a 19-gamer and a 11-gamer, respectively. It was remarkable and, frankly, a lot of fun to watch the season materialize organically. To commemorate the 2013-14 San Antonio Spurs, I doled out several Spurs […]
Dallas Mavericks’ Dirk Nowitzki performance in Game 1 versus the San Antonio Spurs was on he would like to forget. Dirk had a terrible shooting night and finished with 11 points off 4-of-14 shooting. And though some may point at Nowitzki himself for his poor performance, Spurs’ Tiago Splitter had a huge hand in slowing down […]
This picture best describes Game 1. For about 41 minutes it felt like nothing went the Spurs way, until Dallas decided that making baskets wasn’t fun anymore, and let the Spurs dominate the last eight minutes of the game. But before we start previewing Wednesday’s Game 2, it’s time to take a second look back […]
The NBA named San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich the 2013-14 Coach of the Year. It’s Popovich’s third Coach of the Year award, putting him in exclusive company: Pat Riley and Don Nelson are the only other coaches with three Coach of the Year awards. So, the question remains: Where will Pop keep his awards? […]
The NBA “family tree” of the San Antonio Spurs has grown over the years and it appears it might continue to grow even longer next season. Less than a year after losing both Mike Budenholzer and Brett Brown, it seems the Spurs might be in danger of losing yet another assistant coach. A source close […]
The San Antonio Spurs have defeated the Dallas Mavericks 10 consecutive times and apparently that is enough for Dallas guard Devin Harris. “We’re due for one (a win),” Harris said after the Mavericks’ Game 1 loss to the Spurs. Dallas knows first hand just how difficult it is to beat San Antonio. They had a […]
After three successful runs to the NBA title in 2003, 2005 and 2007, it is safe to say San Antonio Spurs’ Tony Parker and Tim Duncan are on the same page and have impeccable chemistry. Then again, maybe it took a while for that to develop. When Parker was a rookie in the 2001-02 season, […]
Gregg Popovich was named the 2013-14 Coach of the Year, the NBA announced. Popovich earned 58 first-place votes for a total of 380 points. Jeff Hornacek finished second with 339 points. Popovich earned his third Coach of the Year award, joining Pat Riley and Don Nelson as the only coaches with at least three Coach […]
Last season, San Antonio Spurs’ Patty Mills was pretty much the cheerleader off the bench. Rarely would he play and most of the time he just be waving the towel from the sidelines, cheering on his teammates and hoping to one day get more minutes.
That was last season, this is now. (more…)

Joakim Noah was named the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year. He’s a deserving candidate — he played a whopping 2,820 minutes, led the league in defensive win shares (6.6) and defensive rating (96), and he anchored the league’s second best defense. Sure, he received a nice narrative boost, but every award winner needs some kind […]

The Spurs are going to have a press conference tomorrow to announce a major award. Got to be Manu as 6th […]
As the final buzzer went off, the top seeded San Antonio Spurs walked off the court with a 90-85 victory over the Dallas Mavericks in Game 1 of the Western Conference Playoffs. It was in no way your typical victory for a one seed, especially one with a veteran savvy core like the Spurs. Let’s […]
