Hard to believe that for 11 years playing in the NBA, San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker recorded his first career triple-double last night in the Spurs' win over the Rockets. Parker finished with 27 points, 12 assists, and 12 rebounds en route to a Spurs win. Who would have thought that after three NBA titles, All-Star appearances, and countless playoff games that TP would have never achieved this milestone until last night? Let's relive TP's tremendous performance last night with each basket, assist, and rebound along the way.

Jackson says he 'enjoyed' punching Pistons fans

Who could forget the “Malice at the Palace?” It was one of the darkest days in NBA history as the boundary between fans and players was crossed in the most explosive and dangerous way. We can look back on it now and be glad that no one was seriously hurt, but it could have been a lot worse. Everyone remembers that it was Ron Artest who first climbed into the stands, but not...

Neal Talks About Spurs' Early Heavy Travel Schedule

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich knows the team has had a schedule with the Spurs traveling more than usual this early in the season.

Video: Ginobili's sweet pass to Splitter

When the San Antonio Spurs were not hitting one of their franchise record 19-three pointers versus the Bobcats, Manu Ginobili was getting things done with his pass to Tiago Splitter in the paint.

Starting 5: The defense rests

Every morning, we will give you five things from the night before in the NBA to start your day. 1: Only One D in Texas The Spurs have not been a defensive-minded team for a few years now. Gregg Popovich has successfully turned his team from a defensive, half-court team to one that gets up the floor and can score in a variety of ways -- using the 3-pointer as much as the hedged...

Turiaf Considered Signing With Spurs

For a big chunk of the San Antonio Spurs fan population, the team can't have too many bigs. Tim Duncan is still the anchor on defense and can still post up every now and then with Boris Diaw and Tiago Splitter backing him up or playing next to him. Other than that, the Spurs aren't considered to have much depth. The remaining players (DeJuan Blair, Matt Bonner) are...

This matchup is going...
