Season 48, Game 48 Los Angeles Clippers 105, San Antonio 85 30-18, 7th in the West That was a good ol’ fashioned thumping. No way around it. Blake Griffin killed us. Chris Paul killed us. DeAndre Jordan killed us. Hell, Austin Rivers and J.J. Redick killed us. For crying out loud, Spencer Hawes killed us. But all of this is a possible outcome when you play the Clippers. When you…

Season 48, Game 47 San Antonio 95, Charlotte 86 30-17, 6th in the West Disregard a mere 25% of that game, and it was a really good game. Playing 3/4 of a game at a high level is nothing to be upset by; but when the remaining 1/4 is that bad, it can get pretty frustrating. If you watched the game, you know exactly what I am talking about. That 3rd…

Guys, #thestruggle is real. This month we have seen the defending champions go 9-3 in their last 12 games and Spurs fans are starting to step back from the ledge a bit. Of course, the Spurs aren’t the Atlanta Hawks (wait, did I really just write that?), but they seem to have righted the ship a bit. This is to be expected, all things considered. While the Bulls did beat…

Season 48, Game 46 San Antonio 101, Milwaukee 95 29-17, 7th in the West I think the Spurs have reversed the mantra “nothing easy”. Usually it means that there should be nothing easy for the opponent, i.e., play stout and tenacious defense. But I think our boys have taken it to mean that no game–win or loss–should be easy. Every game seems to be coming down to the wire. The…

Season 48, Game 45 San Antonio 99, Los Angeles Lakers 85 28-17, 7th in the West A night after getting embarrassed by the Bulls, the Spurs came out with much more intensity and focus against a depleted Lakers team. Well, for a solid 28 minutes or so, at least. It’s hard to get too worked up over a 14-point win over these Lakers. The roster actually has decent NBA talent,…

Season 48, Game 44 Chicago 104, San Antonio 81 27-17, 7th in the West That was embarrassing. The Spurs were lifeless and listless, sleepwalking their way to their most lopsided loss of the season. The Bulls came into the game in a bit of a swoon, having lost 6 of their last 8 games. Derrick Rose had some pretty strong comments after their last loss (a bit of a sleepwalk…

Season 48, Game 43 San Antonio 109, Denver 99 27-16, 7th in the West The “Oh Yeah, Kawhi is really important to this team” reminder tour rolls on. While the game was ragged at times, and the Spurs struggled to pull away and then put them away, Kawhi Leonard was again a monster in this game. Even when his shot isn’t going down, he does so many overwhelmingly positive things…

Season 48, Game 41 San Antonio 110, Portland 96 25-16, 7th in the West Welcome to your title defense, San Antonio Spurs. It only took half the season, but the championship hangover seems to have subsided, and the injury bug is packing his bags and moving on to his next stop. (Knock on wood.) This game is the first game we’ve gotten of the full roster (well, minus Marco, but…

Season 48, Game 42 San Antonio 89, Utah 69 26-16, 7th in the West If last Wednesday’s win against Charlotte was a “hatewatch”, Sunday’s win against the Jazz was a “lovewatch”. While stretches of this game were offensively offensive, there’s still an aesthetic beauty to this team that wasn’t present a week ago. (Author’s note: due to blackout restrictions, I still haven’t seen the Blazers game, but will recap it…

I mean, at this point, what else is there really to say? If you are like me, you probably spend most of your time during the course of a Spurs basketball game watching through one eye, gritting your teeth, slamming the remote on the ground, yelling at the TV, checking Twitter to see if someone has a magic formula and, basically, pulling your hair out to match Manu’s. Needless to…
