From The Detroit News: The Pistons have tied for the fourth-best start in NBA history. “I think they are playing a lot better than us right now,” said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, who joked before the game that the Spurs and Pistons would have to play well in the ‘JV’ game so people would stay and watch the ‘varsity’ game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat. “We were…

Happy Holidays, loyal Dynasty readers. Doesn’t matter whether the Pistons pulled away at the end, at home, with Manu out. It was a great game and the Spurs have nothing to worry about. You can see the star I hung on my Xmas tree. My tree is a living sequoia, a native redwood in California. It’s in a pot, in a bucket, so it will live year-round on my deck….

The bad news is that for the first time this season, the Spurs have lost two consecutive games. I was going to post before last night’s game against the Bucks something along the lines of, “The Spurs Don’t Lose to Good Teams.” That had been true for 24 games — four of their five losses were to inferior opponents — all except Dallas in the third game of the season…

…if it were a prostitute, Funk would be its only client. …for a few seconds, I actually considered becoming a Lakers fan. …Pop went Singaporean in the locker room after the game: multiple canings for everyone. …it made Beetlejuice look like Denzel Washington. Any others, guys?

I sense a strange trend developing with this year’s San Antonio Spurs. Ok, there’s not a lot of data to go on, since the Spurs have lost just 5 games out of 24, but look who they’ve lost to: 11/5 at Dallas, 84-10311/12 at Washington, 95-11011/25 vs Chicago, 99-10612/10 at Atlanta, 84-9412/18 at Oklahoma City, 76-89 What do these games have in common? 4 out of 5 were on the…

From Onion Sports Year In Review: Team Sports The biggest sports stories in 2005 were not always the best. Yes, champions were crowned in notable fashion: the USC Trojans captured their second straight national title; the New England Patriots cemented their dynasty status with their third Super Bowl win in four years, the Spurs won a thrilling Game 7 to win the NBA championship June 25—In an attempt to show…

Winning close games is what great teams do. It’s not luck or good fortune which allows a good team to win the buzzer beaters. But don’t tell that to Kevin Garnett and the Minnesota Timberwolves, who have lost three straight games by a combined five points. The Spurs are 2-0 in overtime this year and in seven games that have been decided by six or fewer points, the Spurs are…

SpursDynasty exclusive (SO exclusive, we can’t legally claim anyone actually said anything below, so we’ll use National Enquirer journalism standards) Immediately after losing to the terrible Atlanta Hawks, and at the earliest point in a Spurs’ season ever, Coach Greg Popovich gave his annual “This Team Is SOFT” speech, a longstanding team tradition. Yahoo reports: “On Saturday night, they (the Hawks) finally finished a game, snapping a seven-game losing streak…

My wife will never read this, so I can admit the truth here: I’m in love with Bruce Bowen. After his performance ever at age 33-34 last season, he’s even better this year, shutting down everyone from Allen Iverson to Dirk Nowitski, blending seamlessly and selflessly into the offense, finishing on the break consistently, passing nicely, and nailing his 3’s – he’s currently the 4th-best 3-point shooter in the L….

During the Spurs-Heat game last night, ESPN ran footage of the last time the Heat won in San Antonio — December 23, 1996. That game changed everything for the San Antonio Spurs. David Robinson played just six games in 1996-97 after missing a total of 17 games in his first seven season. He was sidelined for the first 18 games of the season while recovering from a lower back strain,…
