The Game 1 match-up between the Golden State Warriors and the San Antonio Spurs was a certifiable NBA playoff classic. It required double-overtime for the host Spurs to vanquish the plucky Warriors by a score of 129-127, extending Golden State’s futility on the road against San Antonio to a mind-blowing 30 straight losses dating back to Feb. 14, 1997.
And while the game itself was more than enthralling and memorable on its own merits, the annoying screeching and shrieking by one female Spurs fan that was picked up by TNT’s microphones may be perhaps the most memorable part of the fantastic game.
Prepare to be annoyed and disturbed.
Seriously, what is that? I place the tone of this lady’s screeches somewhere between the Screamapillar vocalizations in “The Frying Game” episode of “The Simpsons” and Lloyd Christamas’ efforts at articulating the most annoying sound in the world in “Dumb and Dumber”:
Yeah, that just about sums it up.

BEST OF MAXIM
Gregg Popovich had one of the best quotes of the season following the Spurs Game 1 2OT victory over the Warriors on Monday night. After rallying form 16 down to force overtime, Manu Ginobili, who struggled throughout the game (5-for-20), came up with the game-winning three to seal the win with 1.2 seconds left – here’s what Pop had to say about it.
According to USA Today...
How do you let Manu Ginobili get that wide open?
The Golden State Warriors will be asking themselves that for the next day as they try to rebound in Game 2 after losing a heartbreaker to the San Antonio Spurs 129-127 in double overtime on Monday night.
Sure, it took more than 57 minutes for Ginobili to hit his first 3-pointer of the night and he had missed his previous...
Anytime Michael Jordan is brought up in a comparison with a current player, it should be taken as an extremely high compliment. So when San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich was on the receiving end of a 35 point explosion by Curry, he held nothing back when asked his thoughts on Curry. “It was like [...]
The Spurs were all but done last night in game 1 versus the Warriors. They however, mounted a huge 4th quarter comeback and hit a buzzer beater to win 129-127 in the 2nd overtime.
With 4 minutes left in the game the Spurs Trailed by 16 points. The Warriors missed their last 8 out of 9 shots and the Spurs ended the game on an 18-2 run to force overtime. With the Spurs trailing by...
If you were watching the fourth quarter and overtimes of the San Antonio Spurs-Golden State Warriors playoff game on Monday night, you undoubtedly heard “Screaming Spurs Fan Lady” yelling every time the Spurs did something good on the court.
This woman’s shrieks were so persistent and so annoying, she stole the focus of the game away from the players on the floor.
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich pokes fun at questions from reporters all the time and can be easily irritated and annoyed, especially after losses, which is what made his reaction to Stephen Curry sinking seven 3-pointers in Golden State's 116-106 win over San Antonio last month such a rare scene.
"It's actually fun to watch," Popovich said following the game in Oakland...
If you have ever witnessed San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich get interviewed mid-game you know that sometimes it can be a struggle. Popovich traditionally doesn’t provide much insight and has little to say. So that’s why many found it funny when Popovich found himself getting interviewed last night by TNT’s David Aldridge. Watch [...]
All it took was one shot from Manu Ginobili to undo Stephen Curry's monstrous performance.
Ginobili hit a 3-pointer from the left wing with 1.2 seconds left in the second overtime Monday night to lift the San Antonio Spurs to a 129-127 win over the Golden State Warriors and Curry, who put up 44 points in the opener of the Western Conference semifinals.
Ginobili's shot and...
The Big Leagues Pop hung up the sass for once.

Let me start out by saying if you did not watch the game on Monday evening, you missed one of the greatest single handed performances as well as a teams will to never quit!
Down by 1 with 3.9 seconds left Manu Ginobili drained the final three pointer of the game, and showed once again why teams love to hate him. After...
The San Antonio Spurs (5-0) will look to defend homecourt against the Golden State Warriors (4-3) tonight at the AT&T Center for Game 2 of their Western Conference Semifinal series.
The Spurs are coming off a thrilling double-overtime comeback 129-127 win in Game 1. Tony Parker finished with 28 points to lead the Spurs while Manu Ginobili nailed he game-winning three-pointer...
A lot of observers have called Stephen Curry the MVP of the playoffs thus far. Gregg Popovich has taken it a step further. The Spurs coach evoked Michael Jordan’s name when attempting describe some of the things Curry has been doing on the basketball court, recalling the 35 points he torched the Spurs for in the final week of the regular season. From 48 Minutes of Hell:
AT&T CENTER--Seated in press row, overlooking the court from the upper deck, one could see the play as it unfolded. As Manu Ginobili set a screen for Tony Parker, who dragged the defensive attention of Harrison Barnes and Jarret Jack along with him, leaving Kent Brazemore to decide between an open Diaw and Ginobili.
Ginobili sank the three-pointer, the Spurs sank the Golden...
The matchup of the game for Game 2 of the Western Conference Semi-Finals will be between San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard and Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry.
In Game 1, Curry went off on the Spurs scoring 44 points on 18-35 FG shooting (6-14 in 3-point shooting) and was the main reason Golden State had a 16 point lead late in the game that later disappeared...
I really couldn't imagine that the NBA playoffs were going to get better in the second round. Warriors vs. Nuggets was up-tempo magic between two highly likable, flawed teams. Dubs-Spurs was going to be a simple slapdown of the young'uns; Golden State hadn't won in San Antonio for 29 games. They clearly weren't going to do that against a rested and experienced Spurs...
