Season 48, Game 26 Memphis 117, San Antonio 116 (3 OT) 17-9, 7th in the West Perhaps it’s poetic that the game right smack dab in the middle of the Spurs’ most difficult week right smack dab in the middle of the Spurs’ most difficult month should go to three overtimes. That the Spurs lost is perhaps besides the point. When you realize that you’re in the middle of an…

It’s been a few weeks since my last week in review. I assure you that, while my reviews have been slacking, my Spurs basketball viewing has not. I received my Bachelors degree last Thursday, so the last few weeks have been a whole lot of finals, a whole lot of essays and a whole lot of regalia fittings. In all honesty, I have watched and now, more honesty is required….

Season 48, Game 24 San Antonio 99, Denver 91 17-7, 5th in the West This was one of those frustrating games that the Spurs mostly dominated early and built up a big lead, only to squander most of it away; they never quite lost control of the game but also never quite put it away. So a once 17-point margin is cut to about 5, and then vacillates between 5 and…

In the sixth and final episode of 2014, Stephen, Noriel, Brantley and I discuss: the ugliest week of Spurs basketball so far this season the tough, scary stretch of games remaining this month the return of Tiago Splitter the opportunities presented by injuries the outstanding play of Danny Green and Cory Joseph trade rumors and who we would like to see in a Spurs uniform Let us know what you…

Season 48, Game 23 Los Angeles Lakers 112, San Antonio 110 (OT) 16-7, 6th in the West I agree with Pop: the team was pitiful tonight. The Spurs started great, going up 10-0 in the first three minutes. They played desperate in the final 3 minutes to erase a late deficit. The intervening 42 minutes were just awful. Pitiful. The team lacked passion, focus, energy, and–well, here, I’ll just let Pop…

Season 48, Game 22 San Antonio 109, New York 95 16-6, 6th in the West The Knicks are having all sorts of issues and are one of the worst teams in the league, but I still didn’t expect this. Coming off a very dispiriting loss to the Jazz in which the Spurs essentially wasted a great Tim Duncan game, tonight served as a ‘get right’ game to wash the bad…

Season 48, Game 21 Utah 100, San Antonio 96 15-6, 6th in the West Tim Duncan was splendid on Tuesday night; the rest of the Spurs roster was decidedly un-splendid. Utah has always been a tough place to play for the Spurs and the rest of the NBA. The high altitude and rabid fans create a rather hostile work environment, and even in down years, the Jazz typically perform well…

Stephen, Noriel and I had a lot to talk about this week: Games against the Celtics, Sixers, Nets and Grizzlies Tim Duncan’s 8th career triple-double Was Danny Green was unfairly scapegoated by Pop in the Brooklyn game? A rejuvenated Manu Ginobili and recuperating Marco Belinelli Could Kawhi Leonard be the league’s next great player? Are the Golden State Warriors for real? Who is a bigger threat in the East, the…

Season 48, Game 20 San Antonio 123, Minnesota 101 15-5, 5th in the West Even though the Spurs had the game in hand from the beginning, I found myself getting annoyed at some of the sloppy and careless play. Then Sean Elliott said something: “We’re just getting a little careless because it’s Minnesota.” I immediately felt better and watched the remainder of the game with the appropriate level of care…

Season 48, Game 19 San Antonio 107, Memphis 101 14-5, 5th in the West We’ve seen this game before. Ever since that playoff series, the Spurs have completely owned the Memphis Grizzlies. Not only that, it seems like the games almost always play out in a familiar fashion. Spurs take an early lead and control of the game. Memphis keeps it close throughout, but never gets over the hump. Spurs…
