Parker and Leonard Continue to Dominate, Spurs Win 116-105

AT&T CENTER — The San Antonio Spurs (39-23) push their winning streak to five with an impressive performance against the gritty Chicago Bulls (39-25). Chicago may have been without Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson, and Jimmy Butler but their vaunted front court was still an incredibly difficult obstacle for San Antonio. The last time these two teams met, Pau Gasol’s 12 points, 17 rebounds, and 2 blocks led the Bulls in a complete route of the Spurs. This time around, Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard put on the dominating performance.



Spurscast 354: Beautiful Shiny Button

In the Tim Duncan era, the San Antonio Spurs have only had six losing streak of four games or more. Two of those losing streaks have occurred this season. Despite carrying a supposedly healthy roster, the Spurs have failed to get their season out of the mud. This season’s Rodeo Road Trip will be the first ever to finish with a losing record. Sitting at 34-23, the Spurs are more likely to fall out of the playoff race than they are to snatch a higher seeding. With two-thirds of the season now in the books, is it time to smash the panic button on the Spurs?



Spurscast 353: Praise Marty Moose

The long Rodeo Road Trip continues tonight for the San Antonio Spurs with a stop in Los Angeles to take on the Blake Griffin-less Clippers. The Spurs went 2-1 on the short Eastern Conference leg of the trip, entering the NBA’s ceremonious halftime with a strong performance over the Detroit Pistons. Even with the NBA finally be back in action tonight, most of the basketball-world will still be processing the rumors and news leading up to today’s trade deadline at 3:00 PM (EST).

Spurscast 352: ROAD TRIP, BRAH

The 13th Annual Road Trip kicks-off this Sunday with the opening game taking place in the maple syrup Valhalla more commonly known as Toronto. The San Antonio Spurs boast an impressive record since the installation of the Rodeo Road Trip, amassing 71 wins out of the 100 games played to date. With the championship hangover still lingering, do the Spurs need their home court sabbatical more than ever?



Spurscast 351: All Work and No Play

The race for Western Conference Playoff seeding is heating up. The San Antonio Spurs have won eight of their last ten games and are now only four games back from the second-seeded Memphis Grizzlies. While the Spurs are finally starting to gain a little traction this season, other title contenders are beginning to slip. Have the last few weeks changed the outlook of the Spurs’ post-season?

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.

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.
