San Antonio Spurs
By Martin McNeal, The Sports Xchange SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- San Antonio's Tim Duncan wasn't feeling well. So he took it out on the Sacramento Kings during a 97-86 victory at the Sleep Train Arena Friday night. Duncan cautioned reporters after the game because he's been suffering from flu-like symptoms. Duncan's game-high 23 points were one of the few offensive constants on a night in which the Spurs committed 20 turnovers. Luckily for San Antonio, the Kings rarely could make shots. "It's not like it once was where they ran everything through me. Now, if I've got it going they'll keep going to me. It was good (Friday night) Patty (Mills) had it going since Tony (Parker) was ill." Mills scored 18 on eight of nine from the field. "You never know how things are going to go," Duncan said. "I've seen nights when Tony was sick and hit the game-winning basket." Meanwhile, the Kings were lamenting their inability to...

However, the Spurs did turn the ball over 20 times during the contest.
Talking about end of the season awards candidates after a week or two into the season can get pretty ridiculous, but you can't blame NBA bloggers and media members for being excited early on this season. Regardless of whether or not certain players will be playing as well toward the end of the season, or sustain throughout, there's no doubting some players have had an excellent...

Danny Green makes a lot of money. According to ESPN, the Spurs will pay their starting shooting guard $3.5 million this season, mostly to make three-point baskets. A pretty sweet gig indeed, but that doesn’t mean it comes completely free of drawbacks. For example, in Friday’s game against the Kings, Green found himself the last line of defense between a charging DeMarcus...
