Now that the Western Conference Finals are set between the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder, fans from both sides have been asking questions and it might sound like the same ones that were asked 2 years ago when they met and the Spurs fell to the Thunder. This year is different and it’s […]
NBA fans usually wonder what players talk about during the games and the NBA has mic’ed up certain players for the playoffs. Danny Green and Wesley Matthews had a microphone on during the game to catch how players react and what they discuss during the postseason where they’re looking to win an NBA title among […]
The San Antonio Spurs have advanced to the Western Conference Semi-Finals with the Portland Trailblazers waiting for them. The Spurs needed a full team effort to overcome the 8th seeded Dallas Mavericks and will likely need the same performances from their squad this round. Tiago Splitter was said to be the series MVP against Dallas with […]
They looked like the San Antonio Spurs that we’ve been seeing this season. Their scoring seemed to come naturally and they weren’t as one dimensional as the Dallas Mavericks made them seem throughout the first four games of the first round of the NBA Playoffs. This resurrection of the offense had nothing to do with […]
Through four games of the first round of the NBA Playoffs, the San Antonio Spurs are struggling. Well, not all the team is struggling but key role players have seemed to disappear. Danny Green, the Spurs’ starting shooting guard and 3-point specialist, is averaging 2.8 ppg. It doesn’t take you much math to know that […]
The San Antonio Spurs are down 1-2 to the Dallas Mavericks in the first round of the Western Conference postseason. It’s a little bit unexpected (OK it’s a VERY unexpected surprise), but it’s not over despite a Gregg Popovich team having to overcome history as they’re 0-10 in a series when they lose Game 3 […]
The San Antonio Spurs barely escaped a tough Game 1 battle in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs and they came up short (by a lot) in Game 2 on Wednesday night. The team will be going into Game 3 and entering it in hostile territory in Dallas Mavericks territory, but they still […]
San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich gave the familiar sideline interview that’s required of coaches for Game 1 of the NBA Playoffs against the Dallas Mavericks. This interview would be different as long time sideline reporter Craig Sager, who is battling leukemia, wouldn’t be showing off his bright suits on national television. It’d be Sager’s son, Craig Sager Jr, who’d be interviewing the often witty Spurs coach and Pop seemed to go easy on him while ending with a heartfelt message for Sager at the end.

If someone asked you “Who would be in your all time starting five?” during a basketball discussion, someone of the obvious names would come up. Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan would be the likely first choices for the guard positions with one of the forward positions including Tim Duncan (especially if you’re a San Antonio […]
The San Antonio Spurs announced Manu Ginobili will miss 3-4 weeks with a strained left hamstring. Ginobili injured his hamstring on this dunk (below) in the third quarter. The Spurs didn't notice Ginobili was hobbling, because they were preoccupied with intentionally fouling Dwight Howard. http://youtube.com/watch?v=EbiGhPciIvA?rel=0 Ginobili's timetable puts him on track to play against […]
The San Antonio Spurs' starting lineup outscored their opponents by 18.1 points per 100 possessions last year, per NBA.com — a massive margin that was second in the entire league. Only Miami's small lineup, with LeBron James squeezed in at power forward, was better. This season, the starting lineup has been outscored by 1.8 […]
Back in October, when the NBA season was in its infancy, I made 21 bold predictions, ranging from predictable to WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU #idiot. Which you can find out by clicking here. Today, I am revisiting them at the Spurs' halfway point (the Spurs are 32-9 through 41 games.) Turns out […]
Matt Bonner left the game tonight against the Portland Trailblazers due to a nose injury. The San Antonio Spurs have updated his condition on Twitter. Matt Bonner suffered a nasal fracture. He will not return to tonight's game. (@Spurs) This is pretty big news considering the Spurs are going through an injury bug as […]
With his team's depth this season, Nando De Colo hasn't seen much playing time with the San Antonio Spurs. With the lack of playing time, the team has sent him to the Austin Toros, owned by the Spurs organization, to see time on the court and keep sharp if his services are needed during a […]
When Tony Parker arrived into the NBA as a member of the San Antonio Spurs, his credentials as a "true point guard" were always in question. He was mainly known for his speed and quickness to the basket (along with what's now his trademark tear drop as his main weapon), but wasn't known for his […]
