Spurscast 354: Beautiful Shiny Button

In the Tim Duncan era, the San Antonio Spurs have only had six losing streak of four games or more. Two of those losing streaks have occurred this season. Despite carrying a supposedly healthy roster, the Spurs have failed to get their season out of the mud. This season’s Rodeo Road Trip will be the first ever to finish with a losing record. Sitting at 34-23, the Spurs are more likely to fall out of the playoff race than they are to snatch a higher seeding. With two-thirds of the season now in the books, is it time to smash the panic button on the Spurs?

Even with the NBA finally be back in action tonight, most of the basketball-world will still be processing the rumors and news leading up to today’s trade deadline at 3:00 PM (EST).

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…)
