Has Pop figured out how his team of veterans can beat the younger, more energetic New Orleans Hornets? If so, let’s hope that what happened last night can be replicated three more times, and that Byron Scott and his team are unable to adjust. 1. Matthew Powell at PtR gives credit to Bruce Bown for shutting down Peja Stojakovic. After averaging 23.5 points in the first two games, Peja was…

So far the Conference Semifinals against the Hornets have gone much like the Conference Quarterfinals against the Suns went. When the Big Three have produced, the Spurs have won. And when they haven’t… Duncan had a career playoff worst performance with just 5 points and 3 rebounds in game one, while Parker and Ginobili combined for just 24 points in game two, getting nearly as many turnovers (8) as assists…

Second Round Game 1 @ New Orleans: Hornets 101, Spurs 82 This post should’ve been written a few days ago, but as always life intervenes, so I apologize. I spent Saturday night at a soccer game, watching the San Jose Earthquakes battle FC Dallas in a contest every bit as thrilling as the 0-0 final score suggests. The teams combined for four shots on goal and the home side had…

Game 4 recap. Relive the excitement!

First Round Game 3 @ Phoenix: Spurs 115, Suns 99 Believe it or not, I’m not completely thrilled we won last night. No, this has nothing to do with Antoine’s overwhelming dominance. Well, maybe a little. No, that’s not it. What’s got me bothered is my face. It’s hairy. Very hairy. And itchy. And it feels like I’ve got food all over my mouth and it just feels gross. I…

Game 2 recap, whee…

Manu Ginobili better make some room on his mantle. In addition to the accolades already earned by the gifted Argentine — two Lega A Most Valuable Player awards, the Euroleague 2000-01 Final Four MVP award, the 2001 Euroleague Championship, 2004 Olympic Gold Medalist and three NBA Championships — Ginobili has now been recognized as the NBA’s best sixth man. We here at SpursDynasty congratulate Manu Ginobili, but we know better….

Game One vs. Phoenix: Spurs 117, Suns 115 (2OT) So… what’d I miss? What, no bankshot?(Photo by Joe Murphy/NBAE via Getty Images) Just kidding, I watched the game. I watched it while alternately cussing, screaming, clapping, yelling, giving myself high fives, doing Tiger fist pumps, and at the end bellowing out “JI-NOH-BLEEE” like a more maniacal version of the Chuckster. “I SAID MA-NOOO JI-NOH-BLEEE!!!!” Jesus on a boat what a…

The 2008 playoffs just started an hour ago and conventional wisdom has it that the Celtics will face the Lakers in the Finals and the San Antonio Spurs’ season might be over two weeks from now. No doubt, with all the drama of last year’s series, when Robert Horry checked Steve Nash into the scorer’s table during game four and Amare Stoudamire and Boris Diaw were suspended for game five…

For the record, here are my quickie playoff picks. Feel free to make yours…East 1) Boston over 8) Atlanta in four. I’d love for something cute to happen just to frustrate Simmons, but the Hawks were running on fumes for the past two months just trying to hold on to the last spot and are obviously thrilled just to be here. 2) Detroit over 7) Philadelphia in six. A terrible…
