San Antonio 100, Utah 84 In the battle of tired legs, the Spurs talent is still too much for the Jazz. Capping off a stretch in which they flew to Mexico, then to Canada, then back to San Antonio, before settling in Utah (on their way to LA next), the Spurs had every reason to come into this game flat, tired, and out of sync. “Schedule loss” was written in…

Minnesota 110, San Antonio 117 Kevin Love went ‘nova first (and brightest), but Ginobili, with a little help from Parker, went last. After that Kevin Love 3rd quarter, I thought the Spurs were done for. He literally could not miss from 3 (to be fair, he did miss one in the quarter), the Spurs were playing lazy and sloppy and getting burned for it, and the Wolves had complete control…

San Antonio 109, Milwaukee 77 The Spurs scored pretty easily on their first few possessions, got up 9-0, and forced a timeout from the Bucks. And with that, the game was pretty much over. The Bucks have some good young talent, and I liked the way they competed, but they are crippled with injuries, and were completely outmatched at every turn by the Spurs. On the bright side, I love…

San Antonio 116, Toronto 103 This game had 2 permutations: the first quarter, in which the Raptors couldn’t miss a shot against a lackluster Spurs defense and won 36-24; and the rest. The rest saw the Spurs outscore Toronto 92-67, and it was only that close because of some last minute garbage time scoring. The Spurs should have won this game easily as Toronto just engaged in a major trade,…

Indiana 111, San Antonio 100 But man, wouldn’t this be a good series? I’ll take this Finals happily: two well-coached teams that play as a team, lock down on defense, and execute on offense? Yes, please. There was a lot of buzz coming into this game, both teams looking to make early statements this NBA season after both being a hair away from beating Miami in the playoffs last season….

Atlanta 100, San Antonio 102 If you ever wondered what it would like for the Spurs to play a younger, less talented version of themselves, last night was your answer. The result: pretty blah. The game was interesting in that it was close and the teams were mostly competing. But Coach Bud brought so much of the Spurs’ system with him to Atlanta, that both teams had each other’s numbers…

Houston 112, San Antonio 106 The Rockets might be my least favorite team in the league. Since arriving in Houston and becoming a featured player, I’ve come to loathe James Harden’s game. I’ve never enjoyed Dwight Howard as a personality, and find him completely uninteresting as a player. And overrated. Team them up together and I can barely stand to watch them. On surface, their offense should be highly enjoyable,…

San Antonio 109, Orlando 91 Like most of the rest of the country, the Spurs didn’t appear to be too intent on working hard on this Friday after Thanksgiving. Thankfully, the Magic, while well-coached and hard-playing, was the perfect post-Thanksgiving (and post-loss to Oklahoma City) feast. The real intrigue coming into the game was the absence of Parker and his replacement, Cory Joseph. Prior to the season, much was made…

San Antonio 88, Oklahoma City 94 Dreams of 81-1 are dead. So be it. The Spurs were (obviously) going to lose again, and last night’s game was a prime candidate: playing a very good team on the road the night before a holiday after reeling off 11 straight wins. The game itself was disjointed and messy, if not entertaining (by virtue of being close throughout). Russell Westbrook had a nightmare…

New Orleans 93, San Antonio 112 The Spurs win again. Yawn. Demolish another team to the point that the 19-point final margin doesn’t indicate the full extent of the victory. Yawn. Bench puts on another offensive highlight clinic. Yawn. Game to game I don’t know what more to say about this team. Everything is clicking to such a fine degree that I’m sure Pop is worried as hell that the…
