I have a few words to say about the Spurs loss to the Pacers today, but I’ll leave the harsh criticism to Coach Popovich: “From our point of view, I thought it was a pathetic performance for a team that’s trying to prepare to go into the playoffs. In the fourth quarter, I thought we played embarrassing basketball. It was a very disappointing loss. A pathetic, pathetic performance.” Embarrassing? Pathetic!…

March 30, 1980: George Gervin became the fifth player to win at least three consecutive scoring titles, joining George Mikan, Neil Johnston, Wilt Chamberlain and Bob McAdoo. Michael Jordan would later join that select circle.

In case you’ve been following the NCAA tournament so closely that you missed this bit of Spurs news, here it is. Mike Monroe reports in the Express-News that, according to an NBA source, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich was fined $15,000 for remarks about Greg Oden in respone to “a Boston Herald reporter about whether it would be fair for the Celtics to land the No. 1 pick in this summer’s…

Game 70 @ Golden State: Spurs 126, Warriors 89I’m not usually prone to giddiness but that, ladies and germs was as close to a perfect game experience as I’ve had in quite some time. I won’t bore anyone with the details, but due to miscommunication and unforseen circumstances I ended up paying way too much for awful tickets and I couldn’t meet the Spursdynasty gang because I’m sick and my…

So the Spurs turned up the defensive effort, holding the New Orleans Hornets to just 13 fourth-quarter points to win 92-88 Wednesday. “We gave up a lot in the previous quarters. It was a great way to…

Steve Kerr writes: The San Antonio Spurs are pretty much locked into the third seed in the West, unless something dramatic happens. That means whomever is the sixth seed will be matched up with them. Currently, the Lakers and Denver Nuggets are fighting it out for the sixth and seventh spots, and it looks like L.A. has the inside track to finish with a better record. But do the Lakers…

Game 68 Vs. Detroit: Spurs 90, Pistons 89 So often we hear statements like “this game had playoff level intensity” or “it was a playoff like atmosphere” and they’re so overused that they’ve become trite and cliché, but you know what? This game did feel like the playoffs to me. I had my arms crossed the whole time, I was muttering and cursing like an idiot and while there is…

Game 66 Vs. Boston: Celtics 91, Spurs 85 Ugh. We’ve seen enough of these this year, no? Charlotte. Houston. Lakers. @ Minny. They sleepwalk through three quarters, look up at the scoreboard at the beginning of the fourth, the reality of a 10 point defecit finally dawns on them, they wake up with from their stupor and fight furiously to tie it up and perhaps even take a small lead,…
