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…

Not much has changed in a week. The Spurs went 2-2 and have yet to return to championship form. But not all is lost. It’s still early in the season. Seven games mean nothing. And flashes of light are being seen amongst the rubble. It hasn’t been championship basketball, but it also hasn’t been the 76ers. I want to focus on three numbers: 98, 26 and 9. It’s no surprise…

Season 48, Game 06 San Antonio 89, Los Angeles Clippers 85 3-3, 10th in the West Even though it still wasn’t pretty (I’m looking at you, Tony Parker, 3-point shooting), given the early season struggles, that was a nice win against the Clippers. The team even started to resemble a distant cousin of last year’s team. So in the spirit of victory, I’ll focus on the positive and save the…

Season 48, Game 05 New Orleans 100, San Antonio 99 2-3, 10th in the West After last night’s game, Boris Diaw tweeted: I fully agree with Boris, and I’ve argued many times that one should not dwell on all of the miniature mistakes that occurred in the first 47 1/2 minutes of a 1-pt loss. If Kawhi’s ball bounces in, we’re not thinking about Tyreke Evans 2 buzzer beating shots…

Back in 2005, when I launched SpursDynasty.com with my two good friends Jake and Brantley, the idea was that it would be a podcast, not a website. After a drunken attempt at recording ourselves talking about our favorite team, and then listening to how ridiculous we sounded, we decided blogging was a more achievable goal. That was then and this is now. We’re older and perhaps wiser. Software tools like…

Season 48, Game 04 Houston 98, San Antonio 81 2-2 Before we get to the Spurs, let me say this about arguably my least favorite team (with my least favorite players) in the league: both James Harden and Dwight Howard looked great last night, and this Rockets team is legit. (It’s also nice not to have to hear the Rockets’ announcers, probably the only crew that Reggie Miller is a…

Season 48, Game 03 San Antonio 94, Atlanta 92 2-1 Much like last season’s game against the Hawks in San Antonio, the Spurs’ “little brother” look alike came into town and the gear ground to a halt. I’m considering adopting Atlanta as my Eastern Conference team to follow and cheer for. With Coach Bud taking over, they run a system very similar to the Spurs. Their roster is also full…

Now that we’ve had a summer to gloat and boast about our team’s accomplishments in last year’s NBA finals, it’s time to pour some water on the fire and fuhgeddaboudit. Opening week has come and gone and, if you’re at all like me, the summer of pride was not long enough, especially after this dud of an opening week. Dud, not in the aspect of gaming, but just in the…

Season 48, Game 02 Phoenix 94, San Antonio 89 1-1 There were no treats for us on Halloween; the Spurs ran out of tricks–and gas–late, falling to the Suns 89-94. It’s not that I hate losing. Losing happens. It’s a long season, and there will be nights when a loss is just in the cards. What I have a hard time with is losing so poorly. When the final score…
