Found November 13, 2013 on Project Spurs:
The San Antonio Spurs (7-1) look to remain unbeaten at home as they host the Washington Wizards (2-4) at the AT&T Center. The Spurs are coming off a 109-85 win over the 76ers in Philadelphia. Danny Green led six Spurs in with 18 points, while Tony Parker chipped in with 14 points and 9 assists. The Wizards are coming off a 95-105 loss to the Mavericks. Trevor Ariza led the Wizards with 27 points. And as the Spurs look to extend their wining streak to six in a row, here are five things to watch for during tonight's contest: • The Spurs enter the new season with 14 consecutive wins against the Wizards. It marks their longest active winning streak against any team.   • The Spurs have only allowed one opponent to score over 100 points in a game this season. • In eight games, the Spurs have only allowed one team to shoot over 50 percent from the field. • The Spurs have outscored their opponents in the paint in seven out of eight games this season. • The Spurs are 5-0 overall this season when leading after the third quarter.

San Antonio Spurs: High marks for quick start

Once again, the San Antonio Spurs sit atop the standings with the best start in the Western Conference. Although they boast a normally fiery 7-1 record, the Spurs continue to sneak their way up the standings as though they aren’t 3-time champions coming off a Finals appearance. They don’t get much press, their coach is overall unimpressed, and the national audience continues...

Marcin Gortat on playing Spurs: 'It was like listening to Mozart'

The Indiana Pacers (8-0) remain the NBA’s only unbeaten team, but the San Antonio Spurs are quietly right behind them at 8-1 — clearly not feeling the effects of Father Time. Why? Because Gregg Popovich is an evil genius, of course! Okay, not really, but he’s managing minutes in expert fashion, relying heavily on his strong bench units while Tim Duncan continues to struggle...

San Antonio Spurs and Applebee’s made for a great Veteran’s Day

I had a great Veteran’s Day yesterday. I got to enjoy a meal at Applebee’s while watching my favorite team, the San Antonio Spurs, run their record to 7-1 after beating the Philadelphia 76ers, 109-85. Playing without Tim Duncan, the Spurs managed to have six players score in double figures to dominate the Sixers from start to finish. They were up by 18 points after the first...

DeJuan Blair has been a treasure for the Mavs

Saddled at the end of the San Antonio Spurs' bench last season, Blair has been a key contributor for Dallas after signing a one-year, $884,293 free agent contract with the Mavericks in August. The five-year veteran backup center is averaging 8.7 points and 7.4 rebounds, and is fifth in the NBA in steals with 2.43 per game. In describing his displeasure at being mired in Spurs...

Sam Young Signs Deal With Australia's Sydney Kings

Free agent Sam Young has signed a contract with the Sydney Kings of the National Basketball League in a deal that contains an NBA escape clause, agent Joel Bell told RealGM. “Sam had other options, but this one made the most sense and will pay him as the highest player in the league,” Bell said. Young can opt out of his deal up until the start of Sydney’s playoffs to join an...

Video: Behind-the-scenes making of the Spurs HEB Commercials

You know them, you love them. I am taking about the funny HEB commercials staring San Antonio Spurs' Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, and Kawhi Leonard. The recent round of commercials have Manu and Tony acting like rich barons eating steaks to Parker handing out salsa to his teammates including Matt Bonner. Check out the making of these wacky commercials including...

Parker leads streaking Spurs to sixth straight with win over Wizards

While the San Antonio Spurs’ camouflage uniforms, worn for military celebration night, may not have had many proponents, it’s hard to argue with a win. The Spurs hosted the Washington Wizards on a one-game home stand and their recent trend of big wins didn’t end on the East coast, as the Spurs finished off the Wizards early in a 92-79 victory, good enough for their sixth...

Video: Manu Ginobili Tapes Journey To Philly

Have you ever wondered what it would be like when NBA teams head to another city and how they get around going from place to place?

The players are seen going...

Pop’s influence still guiding Brown

The recent San Antonio Spurs game against the Philadelphia 76ers presented the Spurs’ head coach and players with much more than just another stop on an east coast road trip. Unlike this time last year, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich had to look across the sideline to the other bench to see a familiar face that had been by his side for seven years. Instead of huddling up with...

Nene Says The Spurs “Aren’t As Talented As Wizards”

Nene is having a hard time with the Wizards and their early season struggles, and it caused him to blurt out the most ridiculous crock of sh*t comment you will ever here. Nene was addressing the state of the 2-6 Wizards after a tough loss to the Spurs, when he started talking about “how tired of the losing he was.” In making his point, Nene made the mistake of saying “the Spurs...

Wizards-Spurs Preview
