On this episode of the Spurscast, Project Spurs staff writer Trevor Zickgraf joins us to talk about last night's overtime loss to the Dallas Mavericks.
Aside from breaking down the game, we all had issue with Matt Bonner receiving the inbounds pass on the possession that could've lead to a San Antonio Spurs win.
After giving the game a thorough review, we talked about the Spurs' second unit, mostly consisting of Danny Green, Gary Neal and Tiago Splitter with a few other pieces moving in and out. Last night's second unit, which also included James Anderson and Bonner, was the reason for the Spurs' comeback and also the group Spurs coach Gregg Popovich elected to keep on the floor throughout the overtime period.
After taking a quick look at some of the above-mentioned players, we finished the show out talking about two bigs that could possibly come to the Spurs and help them where they need it the most. As we reported last week, the Spurs are pursuing Kenyon Martin and are interested in Chris Kaman, who the Hornets are looking to move.

Aside from being a Western Conference rival and playoffs roadblock, it took little more than one swift elbow to David Robinson's head to keep him on their "hated" list.
With that in mind, Spurs fans would be interested to know...

Last night the San Antonio Spurs almost pulled off their most impressive win in recent regular season memory. Down 18 with about three minutes left in the third quarter, a Spurs roster that consisted of Gary Neal, Danny Green, James Anderson, Matt Bonner and Tiago Splitter roared back to give the Spurs the lead late in the fourth, only to eventually lost by one in overtime.
Danny Green of the San Antonio Spurs thought he had beaten the Dallas Mavericks with a jumper at the buzzer. Unfortunately for Danny, he celebrated prematurely as the shot was still being reviewed. It was later found that he did not get the shot out in time and the game stayed tied at 91 and headed into overtime. To make matters worse, Dallas ended up winning the game in overtime...

The Spurs are 10-7 without Manu Ginobili this season.
Already this season, we’ve seen star players go down. Zach Randolph is out for a long time. So is Al Horford. No one knows how Manu Ginobili will play when he comes back. And no one really knows how much injuries are affecting Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul and Gerald Wallace. A part of me wants [...]
