The Spurs are halfway through another perfect series -- not that perfection is the goal. Adding a fifth banner to the rafters of the AT&T Center is the only thing the Spurs care about. Sure, Tuesday night's 120-111 victory gave San Antonio a 2-0 lead over Oklahoma City in the Western Conference final. And, yes, the win ran the Spurs' streak to 20 in a row. "It's great and it is a great run, but we are only worried about the next two wins in this series," Tim Duncan said. "That is all that matters at this point and if that makes it 22 in a row, that would be great. These next two wins are the most important things to us right now." They Spurs are the first to tell you that they're not out of the woods yet. San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich warned his players that Oklahoma City is a "dangerous" team. If the Spurs get careless with two games up next in Oklahoma City, starting Thursday night, they could be coming back to San Anton...

BIG FAN OF THE ALAMO
The Big Fundamental erased all doubt about how he intends to finish off his stellar NBA career, and that would be as a San Antonio Spur.
Two-time league MVP Tim Duncan said he has little interest in testing out the free-agent market once his contract ends after this season with the San Antonio Spurs.
Duncan said he hoped to play another one or two seasons in the NBA and that he wouldn't play for any team other than the Spurs, Yahoo! Sports reported Monday.
"Though I shouldn't say that -- I have to threaten...
For all intents, the Spurs put the Thunder in an elimination game Thursday night. And Oklahoma City responder with the type of effort that San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich could appreciate. The Spurs' lead in the best-of-seven Western Conference final is 2-1 after the 102-82 loss in Game 3. The fourth game is back in Oklahoma City on Saturday. "They played really well...
Obviously, the message extolled on the t-shirt worn by this gracefully aging woman is in reference to San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich saying he wanted some nasty out of his players in an on-court huddle during the 4th quarter of Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals. Well, at least I desperately hope [...]
DUNKIN' ON DUNCAN
The Oklahoma City Thunder have finished off the San Antonio Spurs unbeaten streak in the NBA playoffs after they collected a 102-82 victory in game three of the Western Conference Finals. Thunder star Kevin Durant decided to make his night more memorable by throwing down this poster dunk on Tim Duncan in the second quarter of play:
Gregg Popovich implored his San Antonio Spurs to get nasty to take control of the Western Conference finals.
The Oklahoma City Thunder may just have to get ugly if they hope to make it a series.
The Thunder have struggled to corral a San Antonio offense that is clicking on all cylinders during a 20-game winning streak, the longest any NBA team has been able to maintain into the...
Every morning, we'll give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day.
1: The Spurs...... lose?
This has to be some kind of special effect, right? That was Hollywood CGI that made the Thunder fly all over the court and make more baskets than the Spurs, wasn't it?
After a 20 game winning streak and no losses since April 9, it's hard to believe...
After a month and a half of dominance, San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich suddenly had a reason to question his team's passion and desire.
Kevin Durant scored 22 points, Thabo Sefolosha set playoff career-bests with 19 points and six steals, and the Oklahoma City Thunder snapped San Antonio's 20-game winning streak with a 102-82 victory in Game 3 of the Western Conference...
Now is probably not the best time to be commenting on basketball players' overall IQs (although Tim Duncan DID graduate in four years from Wake Forest). Now is the time to go on the court and show what you got.
The Playoffs are a grueling challenge for every player. Your weaknesses are exposed more and more as the teams get better and better deeper in the Playoffs and your opponents...
