Spurscast 334: Cinco

The San Antonio Spurs are your 2014 NBA Champions. Feels good to read that sentence for the 100th time, doesn’t it?

The Spurs put on the most dominant Finals performance in NBA history while capturing their fifth NBA title, the first San Antonio championship since 2007. It has been an incredible and memorable season for both players and fans alike, a season fueled by the Finals nightmare of 2013. Redemption is a rare opportunity and the Spurs put on an incredible show in their second chance against the Miami Heat.

Paul Garcia (@PaulGarciaPS) rejoins hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) to recap the NBA Finals and bask in the glorious glimmer of the Spurs’ fifth Larry O’Brien trophy.

Spurscast 333: Two in the Box, Ready to Go

The San Antonio Spurs now hold a familiar 2-1 advantage in the 2014 NBA Finals after trucking the Miami Heat 111-92 in the American Airlines Center this past Tuesday. Kawhi Leonard led the Spurs with a career best performance with 29 points (10-13 FG) while also limiting and frustrating the best basketball player on the planet, LeBron James. It was an incredible performance from San Antonio but the Miami Heat will not shrink away from the pressure of a deficit. Game 4 is tonight (8:00 PM CST) and the Spurs will need to bring every bit of energy they put on display the other night.

Spurscast 332: There Will Be Blood

The San Antonio Spurs won their sixth Western title over the past weekend, winning a wild Game Six in Oklahoma City. Tim Duncan and the Spurs are now in their first consecutive NBA Finals appearance but they’ll be facing the super team that broke their hearts in 2013. Is payback all but certain for San Antonio? Or does LeBron James and the Miami Heat have a locked-in date with three-peat history?

Paul Garcia (@PaulGarciaPS) joins hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) recap the ending of the Western Conference Finals and preview the pending grudge match between Miami and San Antonio. It’s the one and only Spurscast. The original Spurs Podcast.

Spurs Return to Form, Roll the Thunder in Game 5

AT&T CENTER – Spurs fans can finally put the fear of déjà vu to rest. Granted there are still at least 48 minutes to be had back up north in the Chesapeake Energy Arena but the Spurs will be bringing along something that was desperately lacking from Game 6 of the 2012 Western Conference Finals: […]

Spurscast 331: Or Maybe Not

Things are a bit tense in Spurs Nation now that the series is even at 2-2. The San Antonio Spurs have looked intimidated and tentative while the Oklahoma City Thunder continue to gain momentum. Has the return of Serge Ibaka really impacted the series this much?

Hosts Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) talk Games 3 and 4 as well as the possible adjustments moving forward. Is this 2012 all over again or do the Spurs have it in them to move past this road block? It’s the one and only Spurscast. The original Spurs Podcast.

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?

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.

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.

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?
