Game 56 Vs. Seattle: Spurs 102, Supersonics 71 Great googly moogly are we playing well right now. This is definitely our best little stretch of the whole season and as down as I’ve been about the club as recently as three weeks ago, I’ve got to admit that it looks like we’re in the nascent stages of another patented March-April blitz through the Association. The big three are all scoring…

As one of our reader’s noted — we’ve had over 10,000 in the last three months, by the way — Manu’s 24 straight points against the Atlanta Hawks “was something special.” I couldn’t agree more. Michael agrees, too. I got to my place a bit later than usual because I had a meeting with one of my editors at the paper. I didn’t really care because I was recording the…

“[The Dallas Mavericks are] the deepest, most versatile team in the NBA. They have an answer to every question. They can play super big, and they can play super fast. They’re always long and they always put a great shooting team on the floor.” “Right now, Phoenix is really, really good and I think San Antonio will have a great final 28, 29 games. Those three are a cut above…

I was shocked to learn that Dennis Johnson died today. Most fans will remember Johnson simply as a great player. Johnson, a five-time All-Star and one of the great defensive guards, played 14 seasons and retired after the 1989-90 season. He played on title teams with the Boston Celtics in 1984 and 1986 and with the Seattle SuperSonics in 1979 when he was the NBA finals MVP. By 1979 I…

Game 54: Vs. Denver: Spurs 95, Nuggets 80 Holy crap! Our boys came charging out of the gates after the All-Star break just as resoundingly gung-ho as they barreled into it, beating the holy hell out of the rich & creamies. Not only was the final score much closer than the “contest” actually played out, thanks to a 32-16 spankin’ of Beno and his fellow scrubs in the fourth, but…

“We’ve been inconsistent all year, so it was nice to see us put together 48 good minutes. That’s one of our best games all year, and it is the finest game Francisco has played for this team.”–Gregg Popovich “It wasn’t tough at all to get up for this one. We aren’t playing well, and we really needed to put together a good game before the break.”–Tim Duncan “This is going…

I never liked Tim Hardaway as a player. It turns out that Hardaway is not only a homophobe, but also a complete idiot. “You know, I hate gay people, so I let it be known. I don’t like gay people and I don’t like to be around gay people. I am homophobic. I don’t like it. It shouldn’t be in the world or in the United States.” He did make…

Game 52 @ New Jersey: Spurs 107, Nets 82 If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times: If we play a team that’s missing their starting point guard, small forward and center and even with all those guys they’re not that great anyway, I like our chances. God, it’s been a while since we’ve had one of these, huh? Almost a full week in fact and I…

Game 50 @ Orlando: Magic 106, Spurs 104 Oy vey, where do I begin? I was actually back home in San Mateo for this one because I had tickets to see my girl Sarah Silverman in concert at Cobb’s Comedy Club, so I basically squeezed this game in between two 500 mile drives, a couple hours of poker, an awkward expensive date, a viewing of Hannibal Rising (sucked) and a…

Yes, they did, Agent Zero. Yes, they did. From Gilbert Arenas’ blog on NBA.com: Whooo, man. Did they come in here and beat us down, or did they? It was one of them games where you start off and you hit your first basket and you like, “OK!” and you feel good about yourself and then you look up and it’s like you’re down 18-4. That’s the same thing they…
