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?

Talking the state of the Spurs with ‘The Big E Sports Show’

Elissa Walker Campbell of Yahoo! Sports’ “The Big E Sports Show” invited Project Spurs’ Jeff Garcia to talk the state of the San Antonio Spurs as the half way point of the NBA season nears.

After the brutal December which saw the Spurs face the best-of-the-best in the West and end with one of the worst records in December in Tim Duncan’s career, how are the Spurs looking now?

Also, the two talk about the injury bug hitting the Spurs, the play of Cory Joseph and much more. Take a listen and follow Elissa on Twitter.

Final: Spurs 104, Pistons 105: Postgame Podcast

AT&T CENTER – The San Antonio Spurs (21-15) lost to the Detroit Pistons (11-23) 104-105 tonight at home off a last second layup by Brandon Jennings.

Jennings (13 points) was able to make the go-ahead bucket off a botched in-bound play which saw the Spurs turn the ball over and free Jennings for the game-winning bucket.

The Spurs coughed up an 18-point lead to the Pistons despite the fact the Spurs scored a season-high first quarter points (37) and saw the return of Tony Parker who scored three points in just 12 minutes of play.

“This is not the first time in the history of the NBA that anyone has given up a lead,” said Popovich. “It happens frequently in the league because there is a 24 second clock, people make shots and miss shots, and people turn it over. It is not remarkable at all.”

The Spurs were up three points in the waning moments of the game with the Spurs when coach Gregg Popovich called for a foul on the Pistons. When questioned about the call, Pop simply said, “Because I wanted to.” (more…)


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.

Spurscast 344: Automatons

After dropping three of their first five games, the San Antonio Spurs steadied the ship with back-to-back wins over the Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors. The Spurs continue their early West Coast road trip today in Hollywood where they’ll take on Kobe Bean Bryant and the hysterically awful Los Angeles Lakers.

The Spurs will also visit the surprising Sacramento Kings on Saturday before returning back to the AT&T Center for a just single home game. They’ll have to hop another Southwest flight to Cleveland in order to take on the new-look Cavaliers.

Spurscast 341: Eastern Conference Preview

Are the reborn Cleveland Cavaliers an instant lock to win the Eastern Conference? Will the conference ever manage to shed it’s pathetic “Leastern” nickname? While the tough Western Conference remains pretty much unchanged from the previous year, the East has witnessed a litany of moves. And with the 2014-15 NBA Season rapidly approaching, many questions still linger with both the top tier and the bottom feeders of the East coast.
