Season 48, Game 18 Brooklyn 95, San Antonio 93 (OT) 13-5, 6th in the West The Spurs shot a chilly 35.6% in Brooklyn. Everything was missing. 3s were in and out; layups were bouncing around and out; 2nd and 3rd shot opportunities, clang, clang. The team put up an unfathomable 101 shots in such a low scoring game. I don’t know if rims can actually be tight or not, but…

Season 48, Game 17 San Antonio 109, Philadelphia 103 13-4, 5th in the West It’s a fairly common phenomenon, and one the Spurs have been on the opposite side of many times: one team jumps out to a fairly comfortable lead in the first half; the second team raises their aggression and energy in the second half and the first team can’t match it. Suddenly, what was once a 24-point…

Season 48, Game 16 San Antonio 111, Boston 89 12-4, 5th in the West The final score tells you everything and nothing about this Sunday afternoon game between two teams with a combined 22 NBA Championships. (Yeah, the Boston Celtics have won 17 Titles. Let that sink in for a second.) If I told you that Tony Parker didn’t score until there was 3:02 left in the second quarter, and…

Stephen, Bramlet, Noriel and I took a break from eating Thanksgiving leftovers to record the fourth episode of the Spurs Dynasty Podcast. We had a lot to talk about: the Spurs six-game win streak, the rise of Aron Baynes, how minutes played has significantly changed this year, the increased use of post-ups, Tony Parker’s league-leading three-point shooting, how Kawhi Leonard continues to impress, the upcoming game against the Memphis Grizzlies,…

Season 48, Game 15 San Antonio 112, Sacramento 104 11-4, 5th in the West Boogie Cousins is still a bad, bad man. The Spurs dodged a pretty big bullet when he was ruled out for the game. The Kings stopped our last little winning streak, and were poised to do so again. But without the center, the edges were susceptible to collapse. Yet the Kings held tough. This is the…

Season 48, Game 14 San Antonio 106, Indiana 100 10-4, 5th in the West A few nights after the French contingent led the Spurs, it was the Italian’s turn to step up. (Well, the Italian contingent save for the one player actually from Italy, Marco Belinelli, though he did have a solid game.) Manu Ginobili and his old Italian League coach, Ettore Messina, led a lethargic Spurs group past a…

I think we can all agree: Week 4 was our favorite week of Spurs basketball so far this season. Not that the Spurs are playing at their highest level. They certainly are not. But after our team dropped three out of their first five, it’s been nice to see them win seven out of eight, including five in a row. At 9-4, this season is already as different as night…

Season 48, Game 13 San Antonio 99, Brooklyn 87 9-4, 6th in the West After a convincing win against a depleted Timberwolves squad in Minnesota (Austin Daye — Austin Daye! — had a double-double, which is about all the information you need to know to understand that game), the Spurs traveled back home to the other end of I-35 to face the Brooklyn Nets. Just like the night prior, the…

Season 48, Game 12 San Antonio 121, Minnesota 92 8-4, 6th in the West After falling behind by 4 in the opening minutes, the Spurs went on a Tony Parker-led 8-0 run to go up 12-8. Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders didn’t like what he was seeing and called a timeout. And just like that: this game was over. Of course it wasn’t over. The Spurs only led by 3, 29-26,…

Jeff was on the road and couldn’t join us, so Noriel Campos sat in with me, Stephen and Bramlet to discuss the team’s blow-out wins against the Sixers and T’wolves, as well as the much-anticipated nail-biter against LeBron James, Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving and Anderson Varejao in Cleveland. Three episodes in, what do you think, fellow Spurs fans? What are we doing well? What could we do better? Let us…
