Robert and Francisco and Beno, off the bench, were the reasons we ended up with this victory”– Gregg Popovich Game 7 vs. Houston: Spurs 92, Rockets 84Record: 6-1   Streak: W-5 This is all you need to know about last night … Tim Duncan had 19 points and 15 rebounds, but the game began to turn when he was on the bench and the Spurs rallied from 19 points down to…

Game 6: Vs. New York: Spurs 100, Knicks 92Record: 5-1 Streak: Won 4 Ugh. Sorry it took me a while to post this. It was hard to find the inspiration. Let’s be honest, the less said about this one, the better. It is physically painful to watch the Knicks play. 11 freakin’ assists on 36 made baskets! How can their fans put up with this one-on-one basketball night after night?…

“He’s the ugliest productive player I’ve ever been around.He looks like a bull in a china shop out there.”–Coach Gregg Popovich on Fabricio Oberto Game 5 vs. Phoenix: Spurs 111, Suns 106Record: 4-1   Streak: W-3 I came home last night and turned on the Spurs-Suns game to find San Antonio down by seven, 88-81, with just over 7 minutes left in the fourth quarter. I was surprised, but not too…

Game 4: @ New York: Spurs 105, Knicks 93 Already this back-to-back junk is getting real old. We just played one of the three or four worst teams in the league -and barely won. We made ten more three pointers than them -and barely won. We shot 83% from the FT line –and barely won. Our point guard matched his season total in assists in this one game –and barely…

The guy will never be an All-Star, but Fabricio “Oh Boy!” Oberto showed some of his potential in helping to save the Spurs’ asses en route to a comeback win over the Raptors. I think his performance (12 points, 9 rebounds, and double-digit instances of general badassness) convinced even more people that the Spurs’ FO knew what they were doing when they made their frontcourt moves this summer. He looked…

Well, there goes the dream of an undefeated season. The Spurs got whupped on by Cleveland up, down, and sideways. How thorough was the beating? Well, the Cavs shot it better from the field, from downtown, and from the line. I think they even had more dunks. In fact I’m sure of it. Also, they out rebounded us, both offensively and overall, had more steals, more blocks, fewer turnovers, and…

Yes, the Spurs got spanked on their own floor by LeBron and Co. last night. But despite that ugly fact, it’s a good day to be a Spurs fan. Of course, the astute and loyal fan will ask, “When is it not?” The astute and loyal fan is a smartass. Of course it’s always a good day to be a Spurs fan—my stating it is merely a rhetorical flourish to…

There were four stories in Dallas last night … 1. Josh Howard committed assualt and battery on Bruce Bowen Howard was called for a flagrant foul on Spurs tough-guy Bruce Bowen (“A situation happened where I got to protect myself,” Howard said) … 2. Francisco Elson stuffed Erick Dampier … and Elson got a technical for taunting when he shrieked after a dunk (“All I did was scream!” he protested…

I’ll have to take these sentiments by Bramlet in order so I don’t lose my train of thought… First and foremost, I have to declare that I am 99.9% certain that at no time this season or any subsequent seasons will you ever catch me pining for ‘Sho or T-Rex. They both had their moments of… well greatness isn’t the word certainly, but let’s just say moments of adequateness. In…
