The San Antonio Spurs thoroughly demolished the Dallas Mavericks last night 104-87 and to add insult to injury, Tim Duncan also demolished former Spur Ian Mahinmi.
While with the ball at the top of the key, the Mavs decided to give Duncan a clear path to the rim and unfortunately for Mahinmi, Duncan put Ian on a poster. My favorite partis how Mahinmi just walks away knowing he just got posterized.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
I am not joking. That is exactly what the San Antonio Spurs box score said tonight when it listed Tim Duncan as a Did Not Dress
Timmy needed a night off, as this was the third game in a set of back-to-back-to-back. There are a lot of miles on Duncan, as the Spurs have made the playoffs in each of his 14 seasons and will need him even more this year. That 35-year-old body needs...
FROM BAD TO WORSE
A terrible year for Lamar Odom got even worse on Friday night, as he was reportedly benched by Rick Carlise who wanted to "look at a different rotation."
GET OFF HIS LAWN
That’s messed up. Doesn’t a four-time NBA champions and three-time Finals MVP get any respect around here? As you can see from the box score above that Hardwood Paroxysm shared with us, Tim Duncan did not dress for the Spurs game against the Sixers on Sunday. With an aging roster that is looking to make another Finals run, Gregg Popovich has to be careful about keeping...
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- DeJuan Blair scored 23 points and Tim Duncan had four key points down the stretch as the San Antonio Spurs beat the short-handed Hornets 89-86 on Saturday night.
The Spurs, chasing the Oklahoma City Thunder for the best record in the Western Conference, trailed by a point twice in the final two minutes. Duncan responded each time, atoning for a lackluster game...
It didn't take long for new Spur Stephen Jackson to show his fiery side and add to the San Antonio Spurs-Dallas Mavericks rivalry.
During the Spurs-Mavericks game this past Friday, Cardinal accidentally hit Duncan across the face during a Spurs' possession. After the game, Jackson didn't think the hit was an accident and let Cardinal know exactly how he felt about the...
If you thought the one point, one rebound, one assist game (aka the triple single) Lamar Odom had against the Lakers Wednesday was the low point of his basketball season in Dallas, you were wrong. Odom did not play a single minute in the team’s loss to the Spurs Friday. Not one. He was benched and received a “DNP – Coach’s Decision” in the official boxscore. Odom believes...
There is surface-skimming reasoning to an argument that because Dallas and San Antonio have split their four games this season, each club winning a pair at home after Friday's 104-87 Spurs victory, only the finest of lines separate the two Southwest Division rivals.
But looked at from another angle margin of victory in those four games the defending champion Mavericks seem...
San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker's status is in doubt for Friday's game against the Dallas Mavericks.
Parker left Wednesday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves with tightness in his left hamstring.
Should Parker be unable to player, San Antonio will use shooting guards Gary Neal and Manu Ginobili to man the point.
The 29-year-old Parker is averaging...
HOUSTON -- The first time I ever saw Shawn Marion, he was sitting in the stands at a place called The Sports Arena in Hutchinson, Kan., and he was signing autographs.
He was there to play in the NJCAA Tournament, and I was there to watch. This was 1998, and I was a sophomore in high school, which is to say it was a very long time ago.
That isn't relevant, except that 1998...
The San Antonio Spurs have found some big man help for the stretch run. Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski reports the Spurs have reached an agreement with recently waived big man Boris Diaw.
"Diaw agreed to a buyout with the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday, and cleared waivers Friday afternoon. The Spurs will sign Diaw for the remainder of the season."
Not all of this...

The Dallas Mavericks signed free agent swingman Kelenna Azubuike on Friday.
Azubuike has not played since suffering a torn knee tendon in November 2009 with the Golden State Warriors.
The 28-year-old swingman had his best season in 2008-09, averaging a career-high 14.4 points and 5.0 rebounds for the Warriors.
Azubuike was traded to the New York Knicks in July 2010 but he never played for them.
After winning the NBA title last season, the Dallas Mavericks are struggling to stay in playoff position in the crowded Western Conference.
Their next opponent has a vested interest in those woes continuing.
The Mavericks will try to avoid their second three-game skid this month when they visit the Houston Rockets in the teams' first meeting this season.
Dallas entered the...
