Season 48, Game 64 San Antonio 125, Cleveland 128 (OT) 40-24, 6th in the West Sometimes you play a magnificent game and run into an individual player that transcends and invalidates it. The great conundrum of basketball is that it is simultaneously the most team-oriented game and the most individualistic game. By virtue of there only being five players per team at any time, one person can more greatly affect…

Season 48, Game 63 San Antonio 117, Toronto 107 40-23, 6th in the West It’s easy to watch the last 16 minutes of this game and be really frustrated that the Spurs let the Raptors back into this game. There’s nothing worse than watching a 26 point lead get cut to 20, then 15, then 12, then 10, then 8…. It’s why Pop hates huge first half leads so much….

Season 48, Game 62 San Antonio 116, Chicago 105 39-23, 7th in the West Remember in my recap of the last game when I talked about how good Parker and Leonard looked? Just copy and paste that and we should be good to go here. Leonard continues his streak of all-around dominance, scoring 20 points to go along with 8 rebounds and 3 steals. That makes 4-straight 20-point games, the…

Stephen, Brantley, Noriel, and I get back on the podcast horse after taking a long break to discuss: whether or not the Spurs have turned it around. what would happen if the playoffs started today. the rise of Kawhi and the importance of a healthy Tony Parker. who might be the league MVP. Let us know what you think in the comment section below or on the Spurs Dynasty Facebook…

Season 48, Game 61 San Antonio 120, Denver 111 38-23, 7th in the West It became clear pretty early on that this was going to be a game of offense, and the first team to string together any run of successful defense would prevail. To be fair to the Spurs, this Nuggets team is a bit rejuvenated (at least offensively) since the firing of Brian Shaw. Under interim coach Melvin…

Season 48, Game 60 San Antonio 112, Sacramento 85 37-23, 7th in the West It’s good to be home. There are many counterarguments to be made against the impressiveness of this win. The Kings were on the back end of a crazy back-to-back, having played in NYC last night (before heading back East after the game). The energy was low, and they’re ‘giving up’ point wasn’t hard to find. And…

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…
