Spurs could keep Boris Diaw, Patty Mills

One of the biggest reasons the San Antonio Spurs were able to finish with a league-best 62-20 while giving their aging veterans adequate rest was the depth they have built through the acquisition of several veterans. Two players that have really settled down in San Antonio are big Boris Diaw and guard Patty Mills. According to Dan McCarney of The San Antonio Express-News, the increase...

Mavs embracing underdog role in series vs. Spurs

The Dallas Mavericks know that many experts have predicted a San Antonio sweep in this best-of-seven series. They spent part of Friday talking about having a "clean slate" against a team they haven't beat in the past nine attempts. It almost sounds like the Mavs are trying to convince themselves they have a chance. The games against the Spurs this season haven't...

Mavs need to avoid Spurs all cost

DALLAS -- Maybe it's a stretch to say San Antonio Spurs fans took over the American Airlines Center on Thursday, but they certainly infiltrated the lower bowl and made their presence felt.

Popovich: Spurs' Mills had 'too much junk in the trunk' last few seasons

You can always count on San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich to say something entertaining. Everything is going right for the team with the NBA's best record right now, and it's not just because of the effort from Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker. Popovich is pleased with the progress guard Patty Mills has shown with the Spurs. But why did it take until his third...

Gregg Popovich calls Patty Mills a “Little Fat Ass”

San Antonio Spurs backup point guard Patty Mills is having the best season of his young NBA career this year. He’s averaging 9.8 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game and the Spurs have the best record in the NBA. But he wasn’t always a major contributor for San Antonio. In fact, he didn’t get much of an opportunity to play a year ago, and when Gregg Popovich was asked...

Spurs Superlatives

Biggest Surprise Patty Mills What hasn’t Patty Mills done this year for the Spurs?  He simply went from towel waving… to primetime. In recent games, he has been flat out on fire.  For example, Patty accrued 25 points in 23 minutes against the LA Clippers in mid-February, virtually putting a depleted Spurs team on his back and leading them to victory.  Oh, but that’s not...

Tony Parker may be out with “various ailments” for the “foreseeable future” (credit to Coach Pop for the precise injury update), but Patty Mills has emerged as the number one when the Big 3 aren’t available.

Will Patty Mills stay aggressive once Ginobili and Leonard return?

It is never easy to see your team being hit with the injury bug as much as the San Antonio Spurs have been dealt with so far this season.  Though we do not like it when it happens, this does bring out some good to the team.  With injuries this season to Manu Ginobili, Kawhi Leonard and now the possible shutdown of Tony Parker until he reaches 100%, the second players are being...
