Danny Green took full advantage of Steph Curry’s ankle injury and used him for a life-sized poster on Sunday. The Spurs’ Green put down one of the larger putback dunks we have seen in quite some time. The dunk put the Spurs up by 11 midway through the second quarter.

Danny Green has held Stephen Curry to 1-of-15 shooting in Games 2 and 3 of the San Antonio Spurs’ second-round series against Golden State.
"It's a great (challenge) man," Green said. "We treat him like a mini Kevin Durant. Obviously he's not as tall or as lethal attacking the rim, but he can finish, has floaters, has all types of stuff, a quick trigger....

San Antonio Spurs swingman Danny Green skied up for a huge slam against Steph Curry, who with a sprained ankle never had a chance.
Most NBA players have a go-to shot whether it the bank-shot a la Tim Duncan or the "sky hook" made famous by Kareem Abdul Jabbar. For San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker is has been the "teardrop" shot.
Since arriving in the NBA at the ripe old age of 19, TP has been going to the shot whenever he gets into the lane.
He drives, lofts it high, has the ball...

If it appears the San Antonio Spurs took a step back in Game 4 after their domination in Game 3, it’s because four games into the series both teams are right back where they started.
The Game 1 the Golden State Warriors gave away was given right back by the Spurs in Game 4, blowing an eight-point lead in the fourth quarter in what will now be known as the "Mother’s Day...

After being outplayed by Steph Curry for the first two games of the series, Tony Parker came back with a vengeance in Game 3 at Oracle Arena last night.
The San Antonio Spurs guard went off for 32 points and led his team to 102-92 victory over the Golden State Warriors, and to add insult to injury, he made this crazy circus shot.

After looking like a superhero in Game 1 against the San Antonio Spurs, scoring 44 points and hitting six three-pointers, Stephen Curry has come back to earth a little bit. He’s still averaging a little over 20 points a game in the last three, but the Spurs have clearly found a way to slow him down a little bit.
Part of that success can be attributed to the defense of Danny...

Now THIS is a damn series. The storyline: the proud, pedigreed, veteran team of cool professionals was supposed to surgically dispatch the brash, exciting, youthful novices from Oakland in 4 or 5 short games. This 2nd round match-up was supposed to be nothing more than a tune up for the Spurs as they prepped to battle Memphis in the Western Conference Finals, and an abject lesson...

After seeing Charles Barkley attempt to tackle Shaq on Inside the NBA last week, I was reminded of their fight back in 1999. It’s crazy to think that these once foes are now Emmy award winning friends. Let’s look back at the history of Sir Charles and the Big Shaqtus.
I remember it like it was yesterday. I was 6 years old, Charles Barkley was on his victory lap in the NBA and...
