When the NBA Finals were scheduled to begin this past Thursday night, I couldn’t help but think of the matchups between the starters since the first few minutes might determine the outcome of the game. Some matchups were obvious (Kawhi Leonard vs. LeBron James for example), but there were others that interested me just as […]
Now that the San Antonio Spurs are getting ready to square off against the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals, one of the questions that’s been asked is if the Spurs are ready to face the team that broke their hearts in Game 7 of the Finals last season. San Antonio seems determined with Tim […]
The question that no one asked when the San Antonio Spurs met the Oklahoma City Thunder was “who was going to guard Kawhi Leonard?” and we saw that question played a huge part in the series in six games in San Antonio’s favor. The Spurs showed they were a different machine this season unlike what […]
The San Antonio Spurs have advanced to the NBA Finals for a rematch against the Miami Heat after defeating the Oklahoma City Thunder in six games. The Spurs will look to redeem themselves after a disappointing Game 7 loss last year, and those hopes look good with an upgraded bench this time around. The Spurs […]
The San Antonio Spurs won in a convincing fashion in Game 5 in a 117-89 decision against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The team was expected to make some changes or tweaks of some sorts and that was Matt Bonner replacing starting center Tiago Splitter. That was one of the reasons the Spurs won along with […]
Now that the San Antonio Spurs have done away with the Portland Trail Blazers, the Oklahoma City Thunder await them in the Western Conference Finals. With a huge blow to their hopes of reaching the NBA Finals, the Thunder are going into this series without their defensive anchor and third best player in Serge Ibaka […]
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 […]
