Season 48, Game 76 San Antonio 123, Denver 93 50-26, 6th in the West As we have for so many years, once again we arrive at a 50-win season for the Spurs. Same as it ever was. As hard as it is to believe now, there was a time when this milestone was in real doubt this season. The team arrived at the halfway mark with only 25 wins and…

Stephen, Noriel, Andrew and I discuss: How good the Spurs have been in March. Which Spurs player is the proverbial head of the snake? Cory Joseph’s value, and under utilization – exhaustively. Whether Pop knows what he’s doing (kidding). Is Marco Belinelli more an asset or a liability? Who do we worry about most, the Grizzlies or the Rockets? Are the Oklahoma City Thunder done? The significance of the Spurs,…

Season 48, Games 74 & 75 San Antonio 95, Miami 81 San Antonio 103, Orlando 91 49-26, 6th in the West That was a productive two days in Florida. Neither Florida team is any great shakes, but turning a ‘should win’ into a ‘did win’ is never a guarantee. Particularly when so many of those games have turned against the Spurs’ favor this season. (Read: a loss to the Knicks…

Season 48, Game 73 San Antonio 103, Memphis 89 47-26, 6th in the West The losses are so noticeable, we’re missing a team really coming together. Even in today’s game–a fairly dominating win against a solid Western Conference contender–I found myself focusing on all of the things that were bothering me. Never mind that Tiago is playing the best ball of his life and went toe-to-toe with Randolph–and won. Never…

Season 48, Game 72 San Antonio 94, Dallas 76 46-26, 6th in the West I’m happy to (most likely) be done with the Mavericks for the season. Coach Carlisle and the Mavs have some sort of special voodoo that prevents the Spurs from properly executing their offense or looking like a competent NBA team for long stretches of time. We saw it again last night, though thankfully for a much…

A few weeks ago, I had these great looking, silver and black, adjustable, one-size-fits-all, “GO SPURS GO” bracelets hand made in Mexico. Now I’m selling them to raise funds for one of my favorite charities. 100% of proceeds will go to the San Antonio Humane Society, so bid generously (click here). Go, Spurs, Go!

Season 48, Game 71 San Antonio 130, Oklahoma City 91 45-26, 6th in the West The final score should be all the analysis you need for this game. A night after playing 3 very mediocre quarters of basketball in Dallas, the Spurs came home and let it all out on the Thunder. The offense was clicking all night, absolutely shredding the Thunder’s defense. And after the first quarter, the Spurs…

Season 48, Game 70 San Antonio 94, Dallas 101 44-26, 6th in the West As usual, context matters. Coming into tonight’s game, the Mavs were in a  bit of a swoon. Monta has been in a pretty bad shooting slump, Carlisle may or may not have called out the heart and passion of the team. The players just didn’t seem to be gelling. They had lost a couple of important…

Season 48, Game 69 San Antonio 114, Atlanta 95 44-25, 6th in the West If styles make fights, the Atlanta-San Antonio match-up is usually a pinching match. Both teams run the same system and the same sets, often with the same names. The game often devolves into what looks like intramural scrimmages, and two beautiful offenses get bogged down by all ten players on the court knowing exactly what both…

Season 48, Game 68 San Antonio 101, Boston 89 43-25, 6th in the West That was a strange game. Whatever the tenor of the game felt like in the moment, the opposite was about to occur. Or at least feel that way. The Spurs started off the game great, playing wonderfully on both ends of the court and building a double-digit lead within minutes. They were getting whatever they wanted…
