BEST OF MAXIM
The San Antonio Spurs have been touting their depth all season, and it was sorely needed to overcome the loss of another key player Sunday night.
Kawhi Leonard scored 13 of his 17 points in the second half and San Antonio beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 104-86 Sunday night for its fourth straight win.
Already without Manu Ginobili and Tiago Splitter, the Spurs lost Danny Green...
During the last two seasons, the San Antonio Spurs’ bench has been a tale of two benches.
In the regular season, the bench has looked like world beaters by getting victories against playoff contenders without “the Big Three” of Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan. During the playoffs though “the Big Three” have been left to do the heavy lifting and hit clutch...
San Antonio Spurs guard Danny Green will be out of action for about a month after breaking the second metacarpal bone in his left hand, the team announced on Monday. Green, who has averaged 7.4 points and 3.0 rebounds per game, injured the hand in the first half of the Spurs' 104-86 win against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday.
The injury was initially called a sprained...
Kawhi Leonard scored 13 of his 17 points in the second half, and the San Antonio Spurs held off the Minnesota Timberwolves 104-86 on Sunday night for their fourth straight win.
Tim Duncan had 15 points and Tony Parker added 14 points and 10 assists for Western Conference-leading San Antonio. Matt Bonner also scored 14 points - including 4-for-5 shooting on 3-pointers - and Marco...
Tony Parker capped a 27-point outing with several clutch layups in the final minutes, and the San Antonio Spurs won their fifth straight game, 101-95 over the reeling New Orleans Pelicans on Monday night.
Tim Duncan scored 18 points before fouling out with 6:02 to go in what turned out to be a surprisingly tense contest between the Western Conference-leading Spurs and a hobbled...
Boris Diaw has been dubbed as many things in his career for his play, with his recent play lately against the likes of Dirk Nowitzki and Kevin Love, you can add defensive stopper to that list......wait a minute, what?
Diaw will now turn heads for his speed or lack thereof but with what he can do as a big man on the floor for the San Antonio Spurs. You don't see many big...
When Tony Parker arrived into the NBA as a member of the San Antonio Spurs, his credentials as a "true point guard" were always in question.
He was mainly known for his speed and quickness to the basket (along with what's now his trademark tear drop as his main weapon), but wasn't known for his passing up until the Spurs adapted a fast paced offense that offers...
As long as he’s ready for playoffs, not really a big deal.

Injuries aren't fazing the San Antonio Spurs.
A matchup with the struggling New Orleans Pelicans doesn't figure to, either.
The Spurs will likely need to show off their impressive scoring depth Monday night when they look to continue their dominance of the Pelicans.
San Antonio (29-8) owns the best record in the Western Conference, and is one-half game behind Indiana for...
Before Monday’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans, the San Antonio Spurs announced one of their guards would be joining Tiago Splitter on the injured list while the other injured one wouldn’t just return to action, but start as well.
With Danny Green being injured for approximately four weeks, it was Manu Ginobili who returned to the team and got the initial start at...
Coming into Sunday’s match-up with the San Antonio Spurs, Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love was averaging 27.5 points, 12.2 rebounds, 3.7 assists, and shooting 50.5% from the field in his last 10 games.
After 32 minutes of being defended by Boris Diaw, Matt Bonner, and Jeff Ayres, Love’s night ended looking like this:
As Love finished with just 14 points...
There’s gotta be a hardcore Spurs fan in your league, or someone who appreciates the classics, or someone who doesn’t realize that Tim Duncan is 37 years old, or someone who doesn’t care, or, best of all, someone who has been hit hard by injuries and is in dire need of a big man.
Because if you find that dude, you want to offer Timmy D. to him right now.
Duncan has once again...
The San Antonio Spurs borrowed from themselves Sunday night in their defense of two-time All-Star Kevin Love and ultimately the Timberwolves, too, during a 104-86 victory that denied the visitors yet one more chance to move over .500 this season.
A month ago, the Spurs discovered veteran big man Boris Diaw — and that’s meant literally — was the best defense against Love in...
Danny Green has suffered a nondisplaced fracture of his second metacarpal, the San Antonio Spurs announced Monday.
Green suffered the injury in the first half of the Spurs-Minnesota Timberwolves game on Sunday night.
Green is expected to miss approximately four weeks.
Manny Harris of the Los Angeles D-Fenders has been named NBA Development League Performer of the Week for games played Monday, Jan. 6 – Sunday, Jan. 12.
Harris, a 6-5, 185-pound guard from Michigan, led Los Angeles to a 2-1 record last week and averaged 35.0 points on .574 shooting (39-for-68). On Jan. 10, he scored a franchise record 49 points to go along with six rebounds, three...
