If you didn’t see this game coming, I don’t know what to tell you. It would have been fantastic if the Spurs could have closed this out in 5, but it also would have been a monumental task. The Mavs are too good, too proud, and too resilient to go down in 5 games, on their home court, losing 4 straight. They came out with intensity that we just couldn’t…

Just sit back, Tim, and enjoy the present the rest of the guys got you. Manu and Tim and Pop told them what you like, and George, DeJuan, Richard, and Antonio went out and got it for you. It’s your birthday, you shouldn’t have to do any heavy lifting today. Get us some boards, play some good defense. But leave the scoring to everybody else; they got this.———————————————————– Things are…

Oh my, that was a good game. Did you see the rotations in the second half? That’s right, you didn’t. Because there weren’t any. At this rate, Game 4 is going to be 5-on-5, call your own fouls, first to 100 wins. Pure craziness. Carlisle seems to be taking a lot of early heat for playing only 7 players in the second half (and really, Marion only spelled Dirk for…

I’m pretty sure this is what Pop had in mind. Meet Parker. He is my friend’s new puppy who was in large part named based upon my suggestion. I got the idea from the Spurs. I suggested Parker, Duncan, and Finley (all sound like good dog names), and she really liked Parker. She says he is not named after Tony Parker, per se, but he’s definitely an influence. He’s all…

Welcome to the post season, San Antonio. After The Spurs’ disappointing Game 1 loss in which the team played with a noticeable lack of energy and intensity, Pop called out the team, saying many of them had played like “dogs”. The most obvious target of these comments was Richard Jefferson, and with good reason. He had a horrible game. But I feel like the canine criticism extended well beyond Jefferson,…

The Spurs Organization has many philosophies that it lives by, the most notable being “pounding the rock.” One of my favorites happens to be our philosophy on filling out the roster with our role players: find professionals who will fall in line behind the superstars and would run through a wall to win a game. The championship years are littered with these types of players. Think Bruce Bowen. Think Robert…

It seems fitting that our post-season begins where it ended last year: with the Dallas Mavericks. It’s a nice reversal from a year ago, as we’ve seemingly switched spots, with the Mavs winning the division and being the higher seed, and the Spurs as the lower seed peaking at the right time. Despite the seeds, when these two teams meet, all conventional wisdom goes flying out the door. Season record…

Early in the season, we couldn’t beat the good teams but beat up on the bad teams. Lately, we’ve been whipping the good teams and losing to the bad teams. Thankfully, tonight we didn’t allow a bad team to get the jump on us. After a slightly shaky start to the game, we seized control in the second quarter and really opened up the game. It’s pretty telling when most…

I don’t understand any better than you do how we can lose to the Grizzlies at home on a day’s rest and then go into Denver–one of the most difficult places to get a road win–the very next night and whip the Nuggets by 20 in a game that they desperately needed to win to stay on pace with the Mavs for the 2nd seed. I just don’t. We played…

The Spurs suffered a crushing blow in their bid to stay out of the 8th spot. I didn’t watch the second half of the game (and now I don’t want to). But from what I saw in the first half, we were sluggish, lazy, and disconnected as a team. The Grizzlies–out of the playoffs and only playing for pride and a winning season–played as if the game was more important…
