Patty drops 29 on Blazers, Spurs win 111-109

The Spurs were without Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard, and Aron Baynes tonight but the team does what they do--win games on the road. The good guys are now an awesome 6-2 on the Rodeo Road trip, which is truly otstanding considering all of the games missed due to injury.

Sifting through the loss: Pistons 109, Spurs 100

One important aspect in the game of basketball is consistency. The ability to put forth a similar product (whether good or bad) night in, and night out. For the San Antonio Spurs, Monday in Detroit was a reminder that consistency is still a ways out of arms reach, as they continue to deal with injuries through each game. As has been the trend in dealing with injuries to match starting...

Popovich Hates "Hack-A-Shaq" Strategy

Aron Baynes has just come in the game for Tim Duncan, with 4:33 left in the third quarter. The Rockets are up on the Spurs 60-56. Then one of the most depressing offensive sequences ever, just happened. Patty Mills misses the pull up three pointer, but Baynes grabs the offensive board, only to get his layup blocked by the Rockets 6'3" point guard, Jeremy Lin. San Antonio...

Spurscast #314: Trade Winds

The San Antonio Spurs were the first team to hit the 30-win mark this season. Does it matter despite all the struggles against "good" teams? Trade rumor is in full swing and the Spurs were oddly quoted as aggressive shoppers. With Danny Green is out for at least a month, does the speculation of a Spurs mid-season bear any weight? Kawhi Leonard's offensive struggles...

Key Injuries to Spurs May Actually Be A Benefit

No matter how much you manage minutes and plan for back-to-back games, the grind of an 82 game schedule is bound to catch up to you. Except the injuries haven't occurred to who you normally expect. Duncan, Ginobili and Parker are relatively healthy, having played in 35 of the Spurs 38 games this season. (Quickly, knock on wood before anything happens to them.) It's the injuries...

Popovich: Aron Baynes just needs an opportunity

San Antonio Spurs big man Aron Baynes is obviously trying hard to make the most of the opportunities he has been given thus far this year, whether it's mop-up duty in blowouts, or extended minutes when he's assigned to the Austin Toros.    In Tuesday's game versus the Toronto Raptors, he was given the nod to play extended minutes with the 2nd team thanks to...

It's one of those nights we'll all remember where we were when Aron Baynes break out of his shell (for one game at least). The San Antonio Spurs were slumping a bit to start the game against the Toronto Raptors. With starting center Tiago Splitter out due to injury, the Spurs were out of sync against the more energetic Raptors. That's when you cue Baynes coming into...

Spurs show off depth in 116-103 win over Raptors

I have to admit I was a little worried about this one. Masai Ujiri put together a great trade in the days leading up to the game, getting rid of Rudy Gay, who was having an atrocious season as their offensive centerpiece. The Spurs were on a FIGABABA and I feared the new look Raptors would come out energized and the Spurs would sleepwalk their way to an early deficit that they would...

When you look at the final score (116-103) and the fact that they held a 24-point lead at one time, it might be hard to believe that the San Antonio Spurs trailed the Toronto Raptors by 14 points at any time in the Spurs’ victory Tuesday in Toronto. The Spurs did indeed have a rough start in Toronto, but after one quarter of play, they had a total team effort in which seven...
