The San Antonio Spurs couldn't keep the Houston Rockets from giving them a tough game, even while scoring 41 points in the first quarter. Tim Duncan's (quiet) mission wasn't as difficult.
Tim Duncan made history in the first quarter by blocking Omer Asik and moving up the ladder in the NBA all-time blocks list by passing Tree Rollins. Duncan is now eighth all-time on the NBA's all-time block shot list. Congrats TD!

San Antonio Spurs fans know one side of Matt Bonner -- the guy at the 3-point line ready to launch a shot.
Outside of the court, the "Red Rocket" is a far different personality and if you've seen his "Coach B" videos, that personality is a little on the goofier side of life.
Nadia Bonner, Matt's wife of four years, gave an interview with UnionLeader...
According to NBA.com, the San Antonio Spurs have received their first warning for flopping this season. Tony Parker is the culprit of the over-acting which occurred during the 5:05 mark of the 4th quarter of a high scoring game that the Spurs had in hand already.
The flop is pretty bad, especially when you see Parker doesn't even try to box his man out which would've...
During the San Antonio Spurs contest with the Houston Rockets last night, Stephen Jackson found Tim Duncan in the paint for an easy dunk.

The matchup of the night for the San Antonio Spurs and Dallas Mavericks game on the Mavs' homecourt is between Tim Duncan and Dirk Nowitzki.
This will be Dirk's 4th game back and he hasn't shot well, only hitting 32% of his shots so far (he went 3-4 in his first game back against San Antonio). He'll still be looking to find his conditioning on the court, but he...

By now you have heard about the Nets firing former Spur Avery Johnson as head coach.
It came as a bit of a shock considering Johnson guided Brooklyn to an 11-4 start, but the team did go 3-10 since -- including two losses to those cross-borough rivals from Manhattan and an embarrassing 93-76 loss at home to Boston on Christmas Day.
Clearly, the Nets didn't want to exercise...
If you love an up tempo high scoring game, you'd love the highlights to the third game of four meetings between the San Antonio Spurs and the Houston Rockets. If you believe in defense first, then this wasn't the game for you.
The Spurs were once seen as a defensive juggernaut that wanted the final score to be in the low 80s if possible, but this year it's the opposite...

Gary Neal has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Dallas Mavericks:
Gary Neal did not travel to Dallas with the team and will not play tomorrow vs. the Mavericks (@spurs on Twitter)
Neal was also out against the Houston Rockets also. The San Antonio Spurs seemed to not need him with their surplus of guards (mostly point guards), which is a good sign...
Manu Ginobili will skip the 2013 FIBA Americas Championship.
The matchup of the game for Friday night's game between the San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets is Tony Parker vs Jeremy Lin.
With James Harden out last game between the two clubs, Lin had a ridiculous game against the Spurs that saw him score 38 points and dish out 7 assists. The Spurs got the win though behind Parker's triple double of 27 points, 12 assists, and 12...
As good as the San Antonio Spurs have been offensively, that success has not carried to the road recently.

After a strong defensive effort led to a 100-80 win over...
