San Antonio Spurs
SAN ANTONIO - The Minnesota Timberwolves fought admirably, as they have all season despite many injuries, but a road game against the home-tough Spurs was too tall an order, as the Timberwolves fell 106-88 Sunday at the AT&T Center. Tony Parker scored 20 points, and Gary Neal had 10 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter, when he ignited a spurt for the Spurs (29-11). The Wolves (16-18) hung with the Spurs for most of the game, trailing 78-71 heading into the fourth, but that's when the Spurs exploded. Neal hit two three-pointers in the fourth quarter, when the Spurs outscored the Wolves 28-17. The Spurs had 45 field goals off 31 assists. Manu Ginobili left the game right before the half when he strained a hamstring, although it wasn't apparent how it happened. Before getting hurt, Ginobili, along with Parker, torched the Wolves with driving layups. In the first half, Ginobili and Parker combined for 28 points and nine assists. Tim Duncan broke out of a min...

It was a phenomenal game last night between the San Antonio Spurs and Memphis Grizzlies last night with both teams not backing down to each other.
And though in the end Memphis would come up on the winning end, Spurs' Tony Parker would make sure San Antonio would have a fighting chance as he sent the game into overtime.
Check out TP's clutch shot from last night's game.
For the past few games, something's been lacking in the San Antonio Spurs' offense. They were missing shots and not trying to test the defenses they were playing against. Manu Ginobili knows the answer to this as he explains in his column on Canchallena.lanacion.com.au:
It would not be a problem if it were the first time, but the reality is that in three of the last...

As we await word on the severity of San Antonio Spurs' Manu Ginobili’s hamstring injury, we can look back to last night’s game and appreciate the contribution he made before leaving.
Manu scored 12 points and dished out five assists in just 12 minutes, including this sweet pass to DeJuan Blair near the end of the first quarter.
Manu threads the needle between two...

Rick Adelman is not expected to rejoin the Minnesota Timberwolves in San Antonio on Sunday or Dallas on Monday, according to Terry Porter, who's been acting as head coach in Adelman's absence. Adelman has been with his wife, Mary Kay, while she's been hospitalized, and he hasn't coached the team since Jan. 5.
With that announcement, the coach will not be with the...
That was bad.
That was exhausted and undisciplined and very possibly a major statement about what's to come.
When the Timberwolves left Minneapolis last Tuesday night, it was on the heels of a surprise win over Atlanta. (Never mind that the Hawks have somewhat imploded since.) It was with a 16-15 record in spite of several seasons' worth of injuries compressed into two...
San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili has updated his injury situation on his Twitter account.
Breaking of fibers in left hamstring, estimated 10/14 days out (@ManuGinobili)
Manu suffered the injury during the recent win over Minnesota.
With the maximum of two weeks, the Spurs have enough depth to make up for his contributions. He'll likely miss seven games...
It will be not just one surgery but two next week for Timberwolves guard Malcolm Lee. Lee hasn't played since Dec. 12, when he hurt his right knee, and next week he'll have surgery to repair cartilage in that knee as well as another surgery on his right hip.
Lee's knee surgery will take place Monday, his hip surgery Wednesday. Dr. Jonathan Glashow at Midtown Surgical...
Tony Parker and Luke Ridnour will be the key matchup when the San Antonio Spurs face off against the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight.
Both teams are coming into this game with disappointing losses. The Spurs lost in overtime against the Memphis Grizzlies with Parker chip in 30 points while the Wolves lost against the New Orleans Hornets with Ridnour scoring 20 points.
The Timberwolves may have dropped a game to the Spurs last night in the Alamo City, but Wolves' Derrick Williams sure left an impression on Spurs' DeJuan Blair.
During the second quarter, Williams got Boris Diaw off a fake and view right past him for the fantastic jam on Blair.
Check out Williams putting Blair on a poster.
