San Antonio Spurs
SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio Spurs were almost back to their full complement Saturday night, and they needed all the help they could get to rally past the hard-charging Memphis Grizzles 99-95 in overtime at the AT&T Center. The Spurs' Big Three returned, along with Danny Green, after famously being sent home for some R&R by coach Gregg Popovich, and the Spurs got big contributions from their famed trio to beat the NBA-leading Grizzlies. Tim Duncan and Tony Parker combined for 57 points, and Manu Ginobili hit a 3-pointer with a minute left in regulation that tied the game at 87 and sent it to OT. In overtime, Parker scored eight of his 30 points. Ginobili had one of his season-high six steals and fed Parker for a layup that gave the Spurs a 91-90 lead with 3:33 left, the Spurs' first lead since early in the third quarter. Memphis, which entered the game with an NBA-best 12-2 record, seemed to have a firm grasp on a victory as it built a 15-point lead late in...

AROUND THE WEB
Ever since the San Antonio Spurs were embarrassed by the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round of the 2011 NBA playoffs, the Spurs have been on a mission against the Grizzlies.
Especially Spurs point guard Tony Parker.
He's responded with tough play ever since TV analysts raved about Mike Conley out "Tony Parkering" Tony Parker in the playoffs a few seasons ago...
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:
Tim Duncan has always been thought of as one of the NBA’s genuinely good guys. He’s been a model citizen in comparison to some of his NBA comrades. That’s why this picture (as posted on Reddit), taken from a Halloween party this October, is rather shocking. Duncan posed with teammate Tony Parker with toy guns pointed at someone dresses as NBA referee Joey Crawford.
A little mischief — if that’s what this is — could cause a lot of trouble.
Spurs teammates Tim Duncan and Tony Parker used the recent Halloween holiday to show their feelings about NBA referee Joey Crawford, a much-criticized figure in the league’s officiating landscape.
In a photo that surfaced in the last couple of days on Reddit, Duncan and Parker can be seen holding guns...
Why are Tim Duncan and Tony Parker holding fake guns to the head of a fake Joey Crawford while a noose hangs in the background? We’ll assume this was from Halloween and is just now surfacing on the Internet. It seems Halloween-esque because this isn’t the time of year when most basketballers take photos of fake guns to a fake ref’s head, especially one that works their games...
For a game taking place on the first of December, it sure felt a lot like the first of May and that had nothing to do with the warm weather in San Antonio.
“It was definitely playoff intensity,” Spurs guard Tony Parker said after scoring 30 points in a game that went to overtime against the team with the NBA’s best record.
It took an extra period, but the San Antonio...
After the team got fined $250,000 on Friday for resting their starters against the Miami Heat, it seems that everything is coming up bad for the San Antonio Spurs.A photo has surfaced over the weekend of stars Tony Parker and Tim Duncan pretending to shoot an unknown individual dressed like NBA referee Joey Crawford at a Halloween party: We'll keep you updated if any fines will...
Tony Parker scored 30 points, Tim Duncan had 27 points and 15 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs shook off a ''disappointing'' $250,000 fine by the NBA to beat the Memphis Grizzlies 99-95 in overtime Saturday night.
Coach Gregg Popovich said before the win he doesn't know if the Spurs will appeal the NBA's stiff penalty for sending Duncan, Parker and two...
The NBA has fined the San Antonio Spurs $250,000 as a result of coach Gregg Popovich sending the teams stars home for a nationally televised game against the Miami Heat. Popovich sent Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Danny Green, on a commercial flight home instead of playing them against the Miami Heat. Popovich wanted his starters to rest before Saturday's home...
SAN ANTONIO -- Maybe the San Antonio Spurs are better with their stars after all. The Spurs were almost back to their full complement Saturday night, and they needed all the help they could get to rally past the hard-charging Memphis Grizzles 99-95 in overtime at the AT&T Center. The Spurs' Big Three of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili returned, along with Danny...
Every morning, we will give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: Second wind
Maybe this is why Gregg Popovich wanted to save his best player's legs.
San Antonio needed every single one of Tony Parker's 30 points and six assists and every single one of Tim Duncan's 27 points and 15 rebounds to help force overtime and defeat...
