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…

Season 48, Game 11 San Antonio 92, Cleveland 90 7-4, 6th in the West It wasn’t the prettiest of wins, but it was well-earned. Let’s play a little “Good Cop, Bad Cop” to recap the action as the Spurs beat the LeBron James-led Cavaliers in Cleveland. Good Cop: Boris Diaw came to play tonight. His fingerprints were all over this game. 19 points, 7 assists, 6 rebounds, 3 steals, and…

Well, that was much better. Coming into the week, I predicted in the Spurs Dynasty podcast that this would be a trap week. Not to sound like Ms. Cleo or anything, but I saw into the future and fully expected this week to play out like it did. Win against the Clippers. Win against Golden State, and a split with one of the bottom tier teams. Well, I was kinda…

Season 48, Game 10 San Antonio 100, Philadelphia 75 6-4, 8th in the West In watching this game against the 76ers, there’s not much to be learned about the state of the Spurs vis-a-vis the rest of the NBA, because Philadelphia is an NBA team in name only. Holy cow, is that a depressing team to watch. They offered almost zero defensive resistance, and couldn’t hit a jumper to save…

Season 48, Game 09 Sacramento 94, San Antonio 91 5-4, 9th in the West DeMarcus Cousins is a bad, bad man. Baynes couldn’t stop him. Ayres couldn’t stop him. Bonner couldn’t stop him. Hell, even Duncan couldn’t stop him. (Hurry back, Tiago!) Foul trouble was about the only thing to slow him down (and an inadvertent hit to the head from Manu), but all it really did was rest him…

After going 1-2 last week, the Spurs won 3 straight this week, beating the Clippers, Warriors and Lakers on the road, improving to 5-3 overall and 7th best in the Western Conference. In this week’s podcast, we take a look at last week’s games, look forward to upcoming matches against the 76ers, Cavaliers and Timberwolves, and learn from Bramlet that Cory Joseph might be ready for a new nickname. We…

Season 48, Game 08 San Antonio 93, Los Angeles Lakers 80 5-3, 7th in the West It says a whole lot about the state of the Lakers that there was no margin of victory large enough to make me think the Spurs played a good game Friday night. The Spurs (mostly) led wire to wire, the game was never really in doubt, and the lead stretched past 20 midway through…

Season 48, Game 07 San Antonio 113, Golden State 100 4-3, 8th in the West Before the Spurs landed in L.A. on Monday, they looked completely out of sorts and their 2-3 record reflected it. The fact that they were about to play the Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warriors, the #5 and #1 teams in the latest Power Rankings, on back-to-back nights no less, made it seem inevitable…
