Pass The Pill:
San Antonio Spurs
The NBA world has been buzzing about Gregg Popovich resting some of his key players last night against the Miami Heat, and the news that David Stern had promised a punishment, for no good reason. The Spurs actually made it a great game against the defending champions, and actually had the game in control until they made some crucial mistakes late in the fourth quarter. Reserve James Anderson made a play that was big at the time, blocking Mike Miller’s fast break layup attempt in the fourth quarter. Watch below: Who knew James Anderson could do that? I mean, we know Mike Miller isn’t the most athletic guy in the NBA, but a very impressive play by Anderson nonetheless. Although they lost, the Spurs definitely flexed their muscles a little last night. Without Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, and Stephen Jackson, they hung in there with the defending champions. In fact, the Spurs kind of had the game in the bag until Gary Neal started chucking ill-advised jumpers and turning the ball over. -Mark Evans, Assistant Manager/Editor of Content Follow us on Twitter The post James Anderson’s Rejection On Mike Miller appeared first on Pass The Pill.

Remember when Tony Parker dressed up as Nick Fury and Tim Duncan was The Punisher? Their Halloween photos were fun, but nothing racy…until now. The Spurs are no longer the most boring team in America…amid a $250,000 fine for sitting out against the Miami Heat, check out this photo of Parker and Duncan using their fake guns on a fellow party-goer dressed as referee, Joey Crawford:

MIAMI Yes, Dwyane Wade has heard what's been said about him.
Talk has been he's an old 30 and doesn't have the explosiveness he once did. It's like a recording, the way critics mention he's on track to having his lowest scoring average since his rookie year of 2003-04.
During Thursday's game on TNT between Wade's Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs...
The NBA plans to make San Antonio pay for resting four stars.
The Miami Heat almost could not.
Ray Allen's 3-pointer with 22.6 seconds left gave the Heat the lead, LeBron James finished with 23 points and the Heat rallied late to beat the Spurs 105-100 on Thursday night, needing to dig deep despite San Antonio's decision to have four standouts resting at home in a move...

It was quite the entertaining game last night between the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat. From coach Gregg Popovich sending the "Big 3" and Danny Green back to San Antonio, NBA Commissioner David Stern not liking that move one bit to the Spurs' second unit almost pulling out the win over the NBA champs, there was much for Spurs fans to be cheering about last night...
Last night in Miami, the San Antonio Spurs showed why they’ve been one of the top teams in the NBA consistently over the last 15 years: depth. Even without Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard and Stephen Jackson, the Spurs were able to hang with the defending champs for all four quarters.
The Spurs have set a mold that all NBA teams should strive...
Nando De Colo showed that he's still getting adjusted to the NBA in San Antonio's first game of the season against the Miami Heat. He played extended minutes with Coach Pop sitting his Big 3 and starting shooting guard. While it was seen as an obvious blowout in favor for the Heat, the Spurs reserves stayed in the game and gave a strong showing against the defending NBA champions...
NBA Commissioner David Stern promised substantial sanctions against the San Antonio Spurs after head coach Gregg Popovich sent home four players before a nationally televised game on Thursday. On Friday the NBA announced a $250,000 fine against the Spurs.

San Antonio Spurs (13-3) vs. Miami Heat (10-3)
Um, so this game got a lot less interesting.
I mean, it might be fun to watch because Charles Barkley is calling the game, but Gregg Popovich's decision to send Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili home to end this road trip for San Antonio takes a lot of the juice out of this game. This is not a 13-3 Spurs...
The Spurs are played the Heat on national television Thursday Night, benching Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobli, Tony Parker, and two other regulars who aren't as notable. So David Stern said he would take "substantial sanctions." This is ridiculous. The Spurs played their fourth game in five nights and coach Pop rested his 30+ year old stars. And started this guy. The...
San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich left four Spurs starters at home for their nationally televised game against the Miami Heat on Thursday night. Forwards Tim Duncan, Danny Green and guards Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili stayed in San Antonio Those four players are four of the Spurs' top five scorers, averaging a combined 57.9 points a game. That's more than half of the 102...
San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich made a seemingly logical decision to sit four of his top players at the end of a six-game road trip to better prepare for a showdown with the Memphis Grizzlies.
The organization now has a lighter wallet because of it.
Despite NBA commissioner David Stern's controversial penalty, San Antonio's core will be well-rested Saturday night...
Lost in all the Gregg Popovich sitting four key players against the Miami Heat and David Stern idiotically losing his lid and promising serious sanctions talk was that our man Craig Sager was back in action dropping another pimp suit on us.
