Season 48, Game 51 Toronto 87, San Antonio 82 32-19, 7th in the West Despite the loss and bleak performance, there is a bright side to this game: the Spurs shot a miserable 33% and still had a chance to win with under a minute left. It’s almost impossible for a professional basketball team to shoot as bad as the Spurs did tonight, yet they were able to remain in…

Season 48, Game 50 San Antonio 98, Miami 85 32-18, 7th in the West Something about those red Miami jerseys must spark these Spurs back to life. The Spurs haven’t looked this good since…Game 5 of the 2014 NBA Finals against these same Miami Heat. Well, not really the same Miami Heat. There’s one pretty good player missing. (LeBron James didn’t play, either; he is now in Cleveland.) In all…

Season 48, Game 49 San Antonio 110, Orlando 103 31-18, 7th in the West I didn’t watch this game live, so based upon what I saw on twitter, I assumed I was going to be angry and frustrated watching the game. How could the Spurs not dominate an underperforming Magic team on a 9-game losing streak at home? Championship teams don’t play close games at home to young squads like…

We now enter my favorite time of the year: February. February is my Christmas. No more baseball. No more football. Just basketball. The way life should be. As a Spurs fan, it means: • Cross your fingers and hope that once again Tim Duncan slaps Father Time in the teeth and gets voted in as an All-Star. Check. • Listen to the boo-hooing and crying about the All-Star snubs, about…

Season 48, Game 48 Los Angeles Clippers 105, San Antonio 85 30-18, 7th in the West That was a good ol’ fashioned thumping. No way around it. Blake Griffin killed us. Chris Paul killed us. DeAndre Jordan killed us. Hell, Austin Rivers and J.J. Redick killed us. For crying out loud, Spencer Hawes killed us. But all of this is a possible outcome when you play the Clippers. When you…

Season 48, Game 47 San Antonio 95, Charlotte 86 30-17, 6th in the West Disregard a mere 25% of that game, and it was a really good game. Playing 3/4 of a game at a high level is nothing to be upset by; but when the remaining 1/4 is that bad, it can get pretty frustrating. If you watched the game, you know exactly what I am talking about. That 3rd…

Guys, #thestruggle is real. This month we have seen the defending champions go 9-3 in their last 12 games and Spurs fans are starting to step back from the ledge a bit. Of course, the Spurs aren’t the Atlanta Hawks (wait, did I really just write that?), but they seem to have righted the ship a bit. This is to be expected, all things considered. While the Bulls did beat…

Season 48, Game 46 San Antonio 101, Milwaukee 95 29-17, 7th in the West I think the Spurs have reversed the mantra “nothing easy”. Usually it means that there should be nothing easy for the opponent, i.e., play stout and tenacious defense. But I think our boys have taken it to mean that no game–win or loss–should be easy. Every game seems to be coming down to the wire. The…

Season 48, Game 45 San Antonio 99, Los Angeles Lakers 85 28-17, 7th in the West A night after getting embarrassed by the Bulls, the Spurs came out with much more intensity and focus against a depleted Lakers team. Well, for a solid 28 minutes or so, at least. It’s hard to get too worked up over a 14-point win over these Lakers. The roster actually has decent NBA talent,…

Season 48, Game 44 Chicago 104, San Antonio 81 27-17, 7th in the West That was embarrassing. The Spurs were lifeless and listless, sleepwalking their way to their most lopsided loss of the season. The Bulls came into the game in a bit of a swoon, having lost 6 of their last 8 games. Derrick Rose had some pretty strong comments after their last loss (a bit of a sleepwalk…
