Season 48, Game 59 San Antonio 101, Phoenix 74 36-23, 7th in the West The Spurs won by 27 and it wasn’t even that close. After struggling for four straight games (and for a good portion of the season, if we’re honest), the Spurs seemed to find a little bit of something in the 4th quarter against the Kings last night. Whatever they found seemed to carry over tonight in…

Ok, I get it. It’s been a rough season. It’s been ugly. Like, really ugly. It’s been incredibly hard to be a Spurs fan this season. This became painfully apparent to me when Jeff Ayres missed a wide open dunk in garbage time in the fourth quarter of that Utah game. I turned the TV off, sat in silence for a minute or two, took a deep breath, and then…

Season 48, Game 58 San Antonio 107, Sacramento 96 35-23, 7th in the West It wasn’t the longest losing streak of the Pop-Duncan era in terms of games (though not far off), but it might have been in terms of actual duration. With the All-Star Break giving the team over a week off, the Spurs last won on February 11th, making it a full 16 days without a win. For…

Season 48, Game 57 Portland 111, San Antonio 95 34-23, 7th in the West Pop is in “coddling parent” mode, which, in many ways, is more terrifying than the Standard Pop setting. Before last night’s game, he was talking about the team’s lack of cohesion and chemistry. (Check out Jeff McDonald’s timeline for a lot of good stuff.) During the game, the ESPN crew recorded him repeatedly imploring the team…

Season 48, Game 56 Utah 90, San Antonio 81 34-22, 7th in the West In a vacuum, this loss isn’t quite as bad as it first appears. Utah is actually a very talented young team with a good defense and elite rim protection. They completely whupped the Blazers a few nights ago, which is no easy feat. They are young, well-coached, and play hard. On any given night, they can…

Season 48, Game 55 Golden State 110, San Antonio 99 34-21, 7th in the West This game was a loss months ago. When you looked at the schedule before the season, a Clippers-Warriors back-to-back after the All-Star Break seemed like quite a task. Once the season began and the Warriors became the ’96 Bulls, Friday night’s game was almost a fait accompli. (This is why beating the Clippers became so…

Season 48, Game 54 Los Angeles Clippers 119, San Antonio 115 34-20, 7th in the West That game was a hot mess. Maybe it was the long All-Star Break layoff, but I feel like I don’t have the tools to properly process that game. I’m rusty at watching and analyzing Spurs games. Which is fitting, because the Spurs seem to be rusty at playing Spurs games. There was a lot…

After last years “dud” of a trade deadline, I figured we would be in for another dud this year. With the CBA being what it is, the days of owners trading players like marbles are long since gone. That being said, the current CBA has a clause that will allow for reconstruction, if both the players and owners agree they are ready to renegotiate. After the crazy finish in the…

Season 48, Game 53 San Antonio 104, Detroit 87 34-19, 7th in the West Now that’s more like it. We should probably disregard the first half of the game, which looks like it should have been set to this music. I actually laughed out loud at a few of the back and forth sequences. Players from both teams appeared as if they had already left for their All-Star Break vacations….

Season 48, Game 52 San Antonio 95, Indiana 93 33-19, 7th in the West If he couldn’t do it in front of the San Antonio crowd, it’s fitting that Pop would get his 1000th win in Indiana, where he was born and still has strong ties. Given the nature of this season, it’s also fitting that the game was tight to the end, and took a pretty strong push from the Spurs…
