Sometimes the game can turn on a single sequence. Up 2 in OT, George Hill drives the lane. The ball is bouncing around the rim, and Duncan has a chance to tap it in, giving us a commanding 4 point lead and momentum. Instead, Duncan leaves the tap short, the Mavs grab the board, Duncan trips over his own feet, And Nowitzki gets a layup at the rim and a…

I just finished watching The Ugly Truth, a crappy romantic comedy that was neither romantic nor a comedy. I didn’t once laugh out loud, I felt no empathy for the characters, nor did I believe any of their emotional growth. It was predictable, unengaging, and frankly, the two leads were both pretty unlikeable. What’s more depressing is that I watched this movie alone, without my girlfriend, on a Saturday night….

Ah. Last night’s game was like catching up with an old friend you haven’t seen in a long time. And you don’t even realize how long it’s been until you’re finally sitting down face to face, rehashing the old stories, laughing at the same silly inside jokes that cracked you up years ago. And you’re so overjoyed to be with this person that you know so well; and yet you’re…

The official 2010 NBA All-Star ballot was unveiled today in Dallas, and there are five Spurs listed. Here are their numbers after six games played: Manu Ginobili (17.5 PTS, 2.7 REB, 4.2 AST, 1.0 STL) Tony Parker (14.8 PTS, 4.0 AST) Tim Duncan (14.6 PTS, 11.8 REB, 1.6 BLK) Richard Jefferson (15.3 PTS, 4.0 REB, 3.0 AST) Antonio McDyess (6.2 PTS, 4.6 REB) Now we all know that All-Star voting…

We were due for a good revenge game. A game when a scorned player sticks it to his former team, making them regret ever letting him go. Matt Bonner went all Brett Favre on the Raptors’ asses last night, raining 3s and even exploding for a monster dunk. The other story from the game was one Mr. Emmanuel Ginobili. Oh my. Talk about a return to form. His final stat…

I love watching NBA games live. It gives you such a unique perspective and feel for the game. You can better understand the flow of the action and how certain players impact the game positively and negatively. When you remove yourself from the constant stat updates and the announcers dictating the narrative of the game, you can start to see things that you maybe haven’t noticed before. Spacing. Rotations. Passing…

As in San Antonio, and every other city in the Association. Granted, it’s a very small sample size, but at the moment, we look unbeatable at home, and like complete horse manure on the road. I know we’re the Spurs, and we’re not supposed to get worked up about early season games, and we’re building towards something bigger. Plus, we’re adding in a bunch of new pieces, and it’s going…

Are you kidding me? Did Manu really just swat a bat out of midair? That’s insane. Anybody who has been around a bad knows how terrifying they are, and how incredibly difficult it would be to just swat one out of the air. But there’s Ginobili, sizing it up, then WHAM, out of the air the bat goes. Meanwhile, men who get paid millions of dollars to be strong and…

Opening night was the good. Last night was the bad and the ugly. We have to expect games like last night, especially early in the season. Nights where everything seems discombobulated and players seem lost and unsure about where to go and what to do. We have more talent than we’ve ever had before; but we have a lack of system knowledge, of chemistry that can be achieved only by…

Oh, boy, that was a fun game. After a slow start in which the offense looked totally discombobulated, we rattled off back to back 30+ point quarters en route to a 113-96 victory over the Hornets that wasn’t even as close as the final score indicated. There were 2 surprises to start out the game: Michael Finley and Matt Bonner. I had theorized in an earlier post that Bonner might…
