2015 Western Conference Playoffs First Round San Antonio 111, Los Angeles Clippers 107 (OT) Series tied 1-1 When so much hinges on so many minute things, an interesting energy permeates a playoff series. Both teams had ample opportunity to seize a win last night or to completely fumble the game away; neither happened. Instead, two mostly equal teams played, and one just kind of outlast the other one. If the…

2015 Western Conference Playoffs First Round San Antonio 92, Los Angeles Clippers 107 Clippers lead series 1-0 After last night’s evisceration at the hand of the Clippers, I think we can safely assume two things: one) we might have seen the absolute pinnacle of how well the Clippers can play; and, two) we might have seen the absolute worst of how poorly the Spurs can play. So by that logic,…

Andrew and Noriel join me in a look around the league, just hours before the 2014-2015 NBA Playoffs tip off. We discuss: Does home court advantage matter that much? How long will it take Pop and the team to decipher the Clippers? How will the other Western Conference series match-ups shake out? Will Anthony Davis be as good as he has been in the regular season? Do we care about…

The final day of the 2015 NBA regular season was not kind to the San Antonio Spurs. They fell from the 2-seed to the 6-seed, and went from facing the struggling Dallas Mavericks (with homecourt advantage) to the similarly sizzling Los Angeles Clippers (on the road). And it’s not just that the Clippers are a very good team, it’s that they are one of a handful of teams with legitimate title…

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: the NBA Playoffs! For the casual fan, the first round offers the most excitement and (obviously) the most amount of actual basketball. The first round also tends to stretch longer than the following rounds, so the next few weeks promise to be full of quality basketball. And the Eastern Conference, as well. Easy jokes aside, let’s take a quick look at each…

To close out the 2014-2015 regular season, Jeff and Jake join me to discuss the disappointing season-ending loss to the Pelicans and the playoffs forecast now that the Spurs have a lower seed (#6) than we had hoped for (#2). Let us know what you think in the comment section below or on the Spurs Dynasty Facebook page. Until next week, Go Spurs Go! Click here for the SpursDynasty Podcast…

Season 48, Game 82 San Antonio 103, New Orleans 108 55-27, 6th in the West That was about as bad of an end to the regular season as was possible. First off, though, congratulations to the New Orleans Pelicans for winning the game and making it into the playoffs. The 8-seed wasn’t given to them; they took it. At the top of the game I was most interested to see…

Season 48, Game 81 San Antonio 107, Phoenix 91 55-26, 2nd in the West The Spurs didn’t play well, but they played well enough for long enough to beat a Phoenix Suns team down to 8 players and looking forward to vacation. Hats off to the Suns who played with more intensity and effort than was to be expected or was even necessary. The Spurs were a little too lackadaisical…

In this week’s podcast, Stephen, Noriel and Andrew discuss: The Spurs have won 10 in a row and 20 of the their last 23 games. What’s gotten into them? Can anyone beat the Spurs in a 7-game series? How important is Kawhi Leonard? Is this team eerily similar to the 2012 team, which finished the season by winning 21 out of 23 games? How much does playoff seeding matter? Is…

Season 48, Game 80 San Antonio 104, Houston 103 54-26, 3rd in the West Tim Duncan capped off a tremendous game in which he put up 29 points and 10 rebounds with one last important number: 1. As in, 1 clean block. (And lest you think it a foul [though I doubt many reading this would], the NBA officially ruled it a clean block.) Of all the tremendous things Duncan…
