For the second time in a week, the Spurs lost a close home playoff game after controversial no-calls in the final minutes. For the second time in a week, they have nobody to blame but themselves. Not to say the officiating was great, but the Spurs put themselves in a situation where the referees could […]
On the brink of elimination and the possibility of the Tim Duncan-Manu Ginobili era coming to an end in San Antonio, the Spurs are going to have the weight of the world on their shoulders heading into Oklahoma City in Game 6. After a heartbreaking and controversial 95-91 loss to the Thunder at home, the […]
“Well, we haven’t had great bench production. We need a couple more people to help us offensively, that’d be great.” Those were the words of San Antonio Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich Tuesday following his team’s 95-91 Game five loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, which put the Spurs on the edge of elimination, heading […]
There was very little surprise when learning that Stephen Curry won his second straight NBA MVP award on Tuesday. Curry has been one of the most consistent offensive players in the league this season, and perhaps the best shooter of all time. His Golden State Warriors set an NBA single-season record with 73 wins, eclipsing […]
AT&T CENTER – With four minutes remaining Tuesday in a pivotal Game 5 between the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder, the AT&T Center crowd was loud and cheering after Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard had just put the ball through the rim on a breakaway slam dunk. Then, the Spurs were in the driver’s […]
Highlights: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPEJ1P9iy1Y The San Antonio Spurs have been here before against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Four years ago saw them squash a 2-0 series lead and facing elimination in Oklahoma. Four years later, they will go back to OKC to try and keep their season alive. Kawhi Leonard had 26 points and six rebounds, but […]
After splitting two games at the AT&T Center, the San Antonio Spurs and Thunder went to Oklahoma City for games 3 and 4. The Spurs controlled Game 3 behind a strong performance from Kawhi Leonard, but Kevin Durant went nuclear and outscored the entire Spurs team in the 4th quarter of Game 4. LaMarcus Aldridge […]
Sunday night’s game 4 brought the excitement it advertised after a decisive 111-97 Oklahoma City Thunder win over the San Antonio Spurs. We saw the Thunder adjust to the Spurs and play to their offensive potential with crisp passes and role players stepping up to help Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, a scene that comes […]
One of the unique things about the NBA playoffs (and is a big part of what makes it great) is that each game is truly a standalone chapter in the annual novel that plays out between 16 teams. I told myself before the two games in Oklahoma City that all San Antonio needed to do […]
After sweeping the Memphis Grizzlies two weeks ago, Patty Mills walked out of that series as the San Antonio Spurs’ third leading scorer in those four games against Memphis, averaging 10.5 points per game behind only Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge. Against point guards named Jordan Farmar and Xavier Mumford, along with an entire depleted […]

Highlights: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sTP7rkyxvos The San Antonio Spurs knew Kevin Durant would respond after the Oklahoma City Thunder fell in Game 3. The upcoming free agent put his team on his back, guaranteeing one more game north of the Texas border. Tony Parker scored 22 points, but it was not enough as the Spurs fell 111-97 to […]
After squeaking by in a 100-96 Game 3 victory, the San Antonio Spurs will have plenty of adjustments to make for Sunday’s Game 4 in Oklahoma City. The team had plenty of new schemes they tried out on Friday night, but there’s going to need to be more to try to neutralize the Oklahoma City […]
If you watched Game 3 between the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder Friday, the basic box score will inform you that Spurs guard Tony Parker scored 19 points on 7-of-14 shooting from the floor. But, did you know that of those 14 shots, only three were contested by the Thunder defense? Well, at […]
Highlights: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6AAN45iqyg With the San Antonio Spurs trimmed to five, Head Coach Gregg Popovich looked down his bench and inserted David West in the game for the aging Tim Duncan. The move would result in the Silver and Black taking a lead in the best-of-seven series. Kawhi Leonard posted 31 points and 11 rebounds as […]
After being able to step away from the series during this prolonged break (which has been excruciating), I’m not sure that we’ve really learned much that we didn’t already assume about Oklahoma City and San Antonio. The Spurs’ defense has mostly lived up to the hype, as a Thunder team that averaged over 110 points […]
Falling in dramatic fashion Monday 98-97 at the hands of the Oklahoma City Thunder, the San Antonio Spurs have had three straight days to digest film, look at their mistakes from Game 2, and anticipate which type of adjustments they’ll need to make for Game 3, which tips off Friday evening at 8:30 PM CST. […]
Game 2 didn’t start out well for San Antonio, but the Spurs were able to overcome an early deficit to make it very close down the stretch. To start the 4th quarter, the Spurs trotted out Patty Mills, Manu Ginobili, Danny Green, David West and Boris Diaw against Dion Waiters, Andre Roberson, Kevin Durant, Enes Kanter […]
There isn’t much better than Playoff basketball. I can think of only a few things: Margaritas, tacos, beer, and Space Jam 2. Jose and Ryan are joined by projectspurs.com Senior Writer Paul Garcia on Cinco de Mayo to talk Spurs, and space.
There is no curious case of Boban Marjanovic. The title of this piece was just to draw you in. I know, deception is wrong. But don’t blame me when you finish reading this article and start to agree with me. The San Antonio Spurs are in the middle of a war of attrition called the […]
