San Antonio Spurs
WASHINGTON -- The Spurs are experienced and savvy and have good team chemistry. And, in terms of their record, win-heavy. In other words, everything the Washington Wizards are not. When the two met Monday, San Antonio went with a balanced approach in racking up its latest road victory. The winless Wizards' record remains decidedly tilted in the wrong direction. Boris Diaw paced seven double-figure Spurs scorers with a season-high 16 points, and Tony Parker scored 15 as the Spurs enhanced their NBA-best road record with a 118-92 win over the Nene-less Washington Wizards. The Spurs (12-3) improved to 8-1 on the road this season and 4-0 on their current six-game road trip. San Antonio has triumphed 13 straight times over Washington, including six consecutive times on the Wizards home court. No matter the venue, every team is finding success against the Wizards (0-12). Every defeat extends the franchise's season-opening record losing streak, but Monday's game was...

It's been fitting for Tim Duncan to be reaching milestones at the end of his career. He's become the San Antonio Spurs all time points leader and broke the NBA's record for all time playoff blocks. So it was fitting for Duncan to reach another milestone: 2,500 career blocks.
This block wasn't just an ordinary block though. It was more of a “I hope no one has...
That 36-year-old San Antonio Spurs forward everyone said would be over the hill by now is looking as spry as ever and having yet another great season.
Like wine, apparently Tim Duncan gets better with age as well, and that couldn't be more apparent than with the NBA's announcement that Duncan has been named the Western Conference Player of the Week.
After an up and down start to the year, Tony Parker is back on track. TP has been on fire over the last week and although teammate Tim Duncan won Western Conference Player of the Week, Parker likely gave him some competition.
Parker got things rolling last Wednesday with a 26 point, six assist performance against Boston. He followed that up with 33 and 10 against Indiana and...
The San Antonio Spurs (11-3) continue their long road trip with a stop in Washington tonight to face the hapless Wizards (0--11).
The Spurs are coming off a thrilling 111-106 double overtime win over the Raptors led by Tony Parker's 32 points and five assist night. Tim Duncan also chipped in with 26 points in the game. The Wizards remain winless in the 2012-13 season...
Tony Parker scored six of his 32 points in the second overtime, Tim Duncan had 26 and the San Antonio Spurs beat Toronto 111-106 on Sunday, their fourth straight victory over the Raptors.
Manu Ginobili scored 15 points, Danny Green had 13 and Boris Diaw 11 as the Spurs won their third straight and improved their NBA-best road record to 7-1.
Parker made jump shots on consecutive...
Gary Neal chatted with me about the Spurs not stealing a lot of headlines, what veterans on the team he is learning from and what Gregg Popovich has meant to his growth on and off the court.
Heading to the east coast three games into a six-game road trip has been an opportunity to excel for San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker. Parker first began the road trip with a 26-point outing in Boston, then followed with a 33-point game in Indiana.
On Sunday, it took two overtime periods, but Parker guided the Spurs to a 111-106 victory in Toronto with 32 points, six...
One would think after the San Antonio Spurs defeated the Toronto Raptors in double-overtime on Sunday they’d be exhausted in an early Monday game in Washington.
On Monday, the Spurs brought energy to the United Center in Washington D.C. as they blew out the Wizards on the Wizard’s home floor 118-92. Tired legs, not for the Spurs as they shot 57% in the game and their machine...

This young 2012-2013 season started off with a familiar note: Manu Ginobili being injured. His first game of the season came against the Utah Jazz on November third after tweaking his back during practice. The guy plays tough, even against his teammates in situations that aren't really competitive. With injuries, come slow starts especially for a guy who needs to continually...
After all these years “Timmy” is still getting it done.
