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…

This isn’t your father’s Suns team. This team plays pesky, irritating defense. They still score bunches in fast-break and transition, but they can also score in half-court sets efficiently. They shoot better, if that’s possible. And they actually have a bench, and a pretty good one at that. (D’Antonio’s greatest flaw might be his inability to trust more than 7 or 8 players, running those players ragged throughout the season…

Dear San Antonio Spurs, Thank you for winning this game, even though you made it too close for comfort. These games count as much as the ones against the Lakers and Magic. Seriously. Look at the rules. Dear Tony Parker, Welcome back. Now don’t suck and don’t mess up the amazing chemistry we’ve cultivated in your absence. Dear George Hill, I miss your shot…I miss your long arms…I miss your…

If I’m honest with myself, I didn’t think we could win this game. My best hope was for a moral victory, that we could keep it close and competitive. After the way they completely owned us in San Antonio a few weeks ago, never in my wildest dreams did I think we could go into Staples Center and not only win, but win handily. From the 2nd quarter on, we…

That’s the kind of game that makes you wonder where this Spurs team has been all season. We played a really good game against a really good team. Maybe the 2nd best team in the entire league. Every Spurs player performed solidly. Manu was obviously the star, controlling the game like a bored puppeteer. Duncan was very impressive in the 2nd half (after missing most of the first half for…

The last 2 games against Houston demonstrate a nice progression this team has made over the last few months. The last time we played Houston, they just owned us as 3 different players scored 30 or more on us. Our defense was putrid, our energy was gone, and we looked bad. Tonight we looked a lot better. For a game against Houston–a team that we play notoriously slow, low-scoring games…

That was my LEAST favorite game of the year. Seriously, wtf? I guess we know how important Ginobili is now. With him, we can beat the best team(s) in the league; without him, we can’t beat the worst. Any other analysis would be pointless. And by “pointless”, I mean “insanely aggravating”. Looking Forward: Probably more humiliation against Houston.

That was my favorite win of the season. I hesitate to say the best win of the season, though I think the case could (quite convincingly) be made. But it was my favorite. Everything just seemed to be working right, and it finally felt like the team had an identity and was playing together. Just great stuff to watch. It seems redundant to keep talking about how great Ginobili has…

A few weeks ago we let a very winnable game in Cleveland slip away in the last few minutes. It was a stinging loss. Heading into the 4th quarter last night, we were in a very similar situation: the game was virtually even, and the team that wanted it more and executed better was going to get the win. Last night that team was the Spurs. The 4th quarter was…
