Stephen, Bramlet, Noriel and I took a break from eating Thanksgiving leftovers to record the fourth episode of the Spurs Dynasty Podcast. We had a lot to talk about: the Spurs six-game win streak, the rise of Aron Baynes, how minutes played has significantly changed this year, the increased use of post-ups, Tony Parker’s league-leading three-point shooting, how Kawhi Leonard continues to impress, the upcoming game against the Memphis Grizzlies,…

Season 48, Game 15 San Antonio 112, Sacramento 104 11-4, 5th in the West Boogie Cousins is still a bad, bad man. The Spurs dodged a pretty big bullet when he was ruled out for the game. The Kings stopped our last little winning streak, and were poised to do so again. But without the center, the edges were susceptible to collapse. Yet the Kings held tough. This is the…

Season 48, Game 14 San Antonio 106, Indiana 100 10-4, 5th in the West A few nights after the French contingent led the Spurs, it was the Italian’s turn to step up. (Well, the Italian contingent save for the one player actually from Italy, Marco Belinelli, though he did have a solid game.) Manu Ginobili and his old Italian League coach, Ettore Messina, led a lethargic Spurs group past a…

I think we can all agree: Week 4 was our favorite week of Spurs basketball so far this season. Not that the Spurs are playing at their highest level. They certainly are not. But after our team dropped three out of their first five, it’s been nice to see them win seven out of eight, including five in a row. At 9-4, this season is already as different as night…

Season 48, Game 13 San Antonio 99, Brooklyn 87 9-4, 6th in the West After a convincing win against a depleted Timberwolves squad in Minnesota (Austin Daye — Austin Daye! — had a double-double, which is about all the information you need to know to understand that game), the Spurs traveled back home to the other end of I-35 to face the Brooklyn Nets. Just like the night prior, the…

Season 48, Game 12 San Antonio 121, Minnesota 92 8-4, 6th in the West After falling behind by 4 in the opening minutes, the Spurs went on a Tony Parker-led 8-0 run to go up 12-8. Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders didn’t like what he was seeing and called a timeout. And just like that: this game was over. Of course it wasn’t over. The Spurs only led by 3, 29-26,…

Jeff was on the road and couldn’t join us, so Noriel Campos sat in with me, Stephen and Bramlet to discuss the team’s blow-out wins against the Sixers and T’wolves, as well as the much-anticipated nail-biter against LeBron James, Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving and Anderson Varejao in Cleveland. Three episodes in, what do you think, fellow Spurs fans? What are we doing well? What could we do better? Let us…

Season 48, Game 11 San Antonio 92, Cleveland 90 7-4, 6th in the West It wasn’t the prettiest of wins, but it was well-earned. Let’s play a little “Good Cop, Bad Cop” to recap the action as the Spurs beat the LeBron James-led Cavaliers in Cleveland. Good Cop: Boris Diaw came to play tonight. His fingerprints were all over this game. 19 points, 7 assists, 6 rebounds, 3 steals, and…

Well, that was much better. Coming into the week, I predicted in the Spurs Dynasty podcast that this would be a trap week. Not to sound like Ms. Cleo or anything, but I saw into the future and fully expected this week to play out like it did. Win against the Clippers. Win against Golden State, and a split with one of the bottom tier teams. Well, I was kinda…

Season 48, Game 10 San Antonio 100, Philadelphia 75 6-4, 8th in the West In watching this game against the 76ers, there’s not much to be learned about the state of the Spurs vis-a-vis the rest of the NBA, because Philadelphia is an NBA team in name only. Holy cow, is that a depressing team to watch. They offered almost zero defensive resistance, and couldn’t hit a jumper to save…
