Season 49, Game 42 San Antonio 112, Dallas 83 36-6, 2nd in the West Eventually one of these slow starts is going to catch up to the Spurs. Right? A team as great as this Spurs team can’t continue to consistently put up sub-20 point first quarters, or fall into 10+ point deficits that early in the ball game. Even with a great defense that keeps them in every ball…

Season 49, Game 41 San Antonio 99, Cleveland 95 35-6, 2nd in the West Astute observers will notice that Thursday night’s thrilling win against the Cavs was the team’s 41st game, marking the halfway point of the regular season. What a way to ring in the second half of the season. It looked as if the Cavs were going to run the Spurs off the court in the first half….

Season 49, Game 40 San Antonio 109, Detroit 99 34-6, 2nd in the West It actually started in the 2nd quarter. In my notes I wrote: “TP going at RJ (Reggie Jackson), mostly for good.” Every so often you’ll see Parker get really aggressive in specific match-ups, and he’ll just go at that player on the offensive end. In the 2nd quarter, Parker got a couple good looks out of…

Season 49, Game 39 San Antonio 106, Brooklyn 79 33-6, 2nd in the West Don’t forget about #12. The way the Spurs have been playing this season–absolutely destroying teams–and the emergence of Kawhi as a bona fide capital-S Superstar, it’s easy to forget that the hope of this season way back when was hung on the biggest free agent signing in club history. Remember LaMarcus Aldridge? 4-time All-Star, 2nd team…

The 2015-2016 season has been kind to our boys in silver and black, who – thus far – have played a relatively easy schedule. That won’t last forever. In fact, this week we’ll get a chance to see the Spurs match up against multiple playoff teams, both at home and on the road. I, for one, am really excited to see how the Spurs play through it. What can we…

Season 49, Game 38 San Antonio 100, New York 99 32-6, 2nd in the West Midway through the 4th quarter, I thought to myself, “Just get to 100 points and the Spurs should win this”. Nailed it. The Knicks – much better than their record indicates and playing very well of late – hung around and gave the Spurs one of their first real scares at home. As Calderon’s last…

Is there any coach in the NBA whose reaction to a coaching honor you can better anticipate than our own Gregg Charles Popovich? Pop on winning Coach of the Month: "I think you should at least get a car. If you don't get a car, I don't give a damn." — Jeff McDonald (@JMcDonald_SAEN) January 4, 2016 Did he brush it off as just another one of the sixteen that…

Season 49, Game 37 San Antonio 123, Utah 98 31-6, 2nd in the West Two nights after beating the Milwaukee Bucks 123-98, the Spurs returned home and beat the Utah Jazz… 123-98. How’s that for consistency? In the Bucks game, though, the Spurs had 7 players score in double digits, while in the Jazz game, they had 8. Big differences. It’s getting difficult to write about this team. Another 20+ point…

Season 49, Game 36 San Antonio 123, Milwaukee 98 30-6, 2nd in the West The Spurs, without Tony Parker in the lineup, shook off another defensively lackadaisical first quarter to put the clamps on the Bucks and win the road matchup by 25 points. After giving up 30 points in the first quarter, San Antonio held the young Milwaukee team to only 19 in the second while taking an 11-point…

Photo: Sports Illustrated Eight.                     Zero.                     Two. That’s how many points three future Hall of Famers scored in a professional basketball game. They only scored 10 points! You would think a team with three future Hall of Famers scoring 10 total points would mean a loss for sure. Usually when that…
