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…

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…
