Spurscast 347: Checking it Twice…

Happy Holidays to you and yours! Have you been good this year? The San Antonio Spurs have… sorta. San Antonio, currently sitting at 17-9, is still reeling from their fourth loss within their previous six games. Some healthy players would be great but the Spurs better hope Santa delivers on some much needed passion.

The remainder of the 2014 schedule for San Antonio is a gauntlet of doom. The next eight teams feature seven currently seeded for the Western Conference playoffs. That other team is the surging Oklahoma City Thunder. On top of that, the Dallas Mavericks just traded for Rajon Rando (Spurs and Mavericks meet on December 20th).

Hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) also look back at the wild finish between the Spurs and the visiting Memphis Grizzlies plus the insanity that is the Western Conference. Guest Benjamin Bornstein (@THE_BOOMSTEIN) of Project Spurs joins the fun.

Battle of the Bruised and Battered: Spurs Whip Timberwolves, 123-101

The San Antonio Spurs returned home Saturday after an impressive road victory the previous night over one of the West’s strongest teams in Memphis. The level of difficulty dropped just a tad as Saturday’s home opponent featured the fledgling and injury-riddled Minnesota Timberwolves, a young team toiling in the cellar of the Western Conference standings.

Spurscast 346: Coughing and Screaming

The San Antonio Spurs have feasted upon a weak slate of opponents of late but the prey will soon bare more teeth as 2014 comes to a close. Kawhi Leonard is setting new career highs across the board but how will being the focal point of the Spurs offense play out this season?

Hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) look at hot topics around the league and back on at the Spurs winning streak as well as the overtime loss in Brooklyn that ended it.

Spurscast 345: Kingslayer

King James fell once again to Kawhi Leonard and the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday, making it four straight losses going back to Game Three of the 2014 NBA Finals. LeBron James fumbled away a last second opportunity, giving the Spurs seventh win of the season. Hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) look back at the Cleveland game and share banter on the injury woes that are still hamstringing the defending champions on both ends of the court.

Spurscast 344: Automatons

After dropping three of their first five games, the San Antonio Spurs steadied the ship with back-to-back wins over the Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors. The Spurs continue their early West Coast road trip today in Hollywood where they’ll take on Kobe Bean Bryant and the hysterically awful Los Angeles Lakers.

The Spurs will also visit the surprising Sacramento Kings on Saturday before returning back to the AT&T Center for a just single home game. They’ll have to hop another Southwest flight to Cleveland in order to take on the new-look Cavaliers.

Benjamin Bornstein (@THE_BOOMSTEIN) rejoins hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) to talk Spurs, the joke that is rest-gate, Tim Duncan’s awesomeness, and more on the one and only Spurscast The original San Antonio Spurs Podcast.

Spurscast 342: Western Conference Preview

The San Antonio Spurs begin their title defense on October 28th against their I-35 rival, the Dallas Mavericks. But are the Silver & Black still the best squad in the Western Conference? Will the West see a new top dog? Does Kevin Durant’s injury sink the Oklahoma City Thunder’s title chances? Will the entire Southwest division make the post-season dance? Will Melanie ever discover Todd’s true feelings for her!?!?

Benjamin Bornstein (@THE_BOOMSTEIN) joins hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) to run through the teams and divisions of the incredibly tough Western Conference. If you haven’t done so already, check out our preview of the Eastern Conference as well (spoiler: The East is still awful).

Spurscast 341: Eastern Conference Preview

Are the reborn Cleveland Cavaliers an instant lock to win the Eastern Conference? Will the conference ever manage to shed it’s pathetic “Leastern” nickname? While the tough Western Conference remains pretty much unchanged from the previous year, the East has witnessed a litany of moves. And with the 2014-15 NBA Season rapidly approaching, many questions still linger with both the top tier and the bottom feeders of the East coast.

Spurscast 339: Fan-isode

We’re still weeks away from the first wave of NBA life, but there is still plenty of action to discuss. Actually, there isn’t. Outside of FIBA Worldcup action, offseason news has been almost nonexistent and there is only so much time the topic of training camp bodies can fill. That and we’re also not looking to squeeze blood from a stone just on guys that you will likely never see on the Spurs’ regular season roster. So last week we came to you on our hands and knees, begging for questions to be sent our way.

This episode is all on you, listeners. Welcome to the first ever Spurscast Fan-isode. Hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) take on the questions mailed in by San Antonio Spurs fans to the one and only Spurscast The original Spurs Podcast.
