Game 29 vs. Milwaukee: Bucks 114, Spurs 107Record: 21-8 Last 10: 8-2 Michael Redd had 36 points and Mo Williams had 23 against the Spurs tonight. Manu Ginobili and Brent Barry missed the game because of a stomach flu. Even so, this is a game the Spurs could have won. What is stomach flu? I can’t recall ever being told by a doctor that I had “stomach flu,” or hearing…

At long last, the Spurs are once again leading the Western Conference. And while no one was paying attention to the hapless East, where a 10-13 record is good enough to be the best in the Atlantic division, the Pistons are now in first, too. Seems like old times, eh? But first in the East is only good enough for sixth in Steve Kerr’s latest power rankings. Kerr finds it…

Game 24 at New Orleans/Oklahoma City: Spurs 103, Hornets 77 I haven’t written here for a while. In my defense I’m tremendously lazy. Also, I think I almost had a heart attack a week ago. I had already been up 32 consecutive hours between 9 AM Thursday and 5 PM Friday, writing two term papers, having lunch with my newspaper editor and working before I discovered that I still wasn’t…

Where the hell have you been, Dingo? In Hawai’i, actually. Thanks for asking. The waves on Oahu’s North Shore were perfect for the Rip Curl Pro Pipeline Masters. And I was fortunate to see U2 and Pearl Jam at Aloha Stadium the night before the Honolulu Marathon, which I decided not to run this year. Maybe in 2007. So what did I miss? Lots, it appears. The Spurs have gone…

Game 22 @ Los Angeles Clippers: Spurs 103, Clippers 81 Oooh, neat. For the second time this season I get to bust out my Duncan-Bears pic.Okay, I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that I believe we’ve established that we match up pretty well with the Clippers. How is it possible that we play a supposedly contending team twice in four games and rout them in almost identical…

Urbane philosopher Tasty Taste once wrote (in the epic poem Granny Said Kick Yo Ass) : “I’m gonna kick yo’ ass”“That was just a good old-fashioned butt whuppin’,” Clippers point guard Sam Cassell said. “Like your grandma used to give you when you messed up and you knew you were going to get it.“ (Coach Don Nelson of the Warriors described their 129-89 loss as “an ass-kicking,” as we reported)…

Game 20 Vs. Los Angeles Clippers: Spurs 111, Clippers 82 Well, that was anti-climatic. Silly me, I thought the Clips would actually give us a game. Oops. Right now we’re just crushing everybody. In fact, our last three games have all been pretty one sided. It’s almost as if we added something to our arsenal, starting with the Warriors game that we hadn’t had before when we were slumping… Eh,…

Game 19 vs. Charlotte: Spurs 96, Bobcats 76Record: 14-5 Streak: W-3 The Spurs beat the Bobcats on Tuesday, thanks in part to another night of great free throw shooting (really?) and another poor outing by the love child of Larry Bird and Jack White. [Just to be clear, I have all the respect in the world for Bird and White, I just thought the line was funny enough to bear…

Game 18 vs. Golden State: Spurs 129, Warriors 89 Wowzers. That’s more like it. Running, ball movement, not too many careless turnovers, and most importantly, the ball going IN the basket. It’s important to not put too much stock into a runaway like this because let’s face it, we played about as well as we can possibly play against a miserable defensive team. Is it an encouraging sign? Absolutely. But…
