He’s averaging 16.7 points , 5.7 assists on 50% shooting. The Spurs have to somehow contain...

Why the San Antonio Spurs made the playoffs

There is a common phrase throughout the world that states “in this world nothing can be certain, except death and taxes.” In the NBA world, an argument for an exception on this certainty can only be made for one common occurrence: a San Antonio playoff birth. For the vast majority of my life, including the entirety of my cognitive life, the San Antonio Spurs have secured a spot...

With the NBA regular season coming to a close, it’s time to gear up for an exciting playoff battle in the Western Conference.

However, being the better conference doesn’t mean that you will get more teams in the NBA Finals. Only...

Spurs 112, Phoenix 104: Best in the NBA…for now

With a 99.8 percent chance of clinching home-court advantage over their final three games, and Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili both chilling out in street clothes, the Spurs (62-18) didn’t have a whole lot to play for Friday against Phoenix. And it showed as they slept-walked through the first quarter en route to an early 21-point deficit. Even coach Gregg Popovich didn’t seem overly...

Musical Chairs: Grizzlies Win & Move Up To Eighth

For a change, Mike Conley didn’t have to do everything on offense, scoring only 2 points, while dishing 8 assists in 23 minutes. All photos courtesy of Warren Roseborough. The reflexive thought when playing a team that reeled of an NBA-record 26 consecutive losses is to expect the Grizzlies to assert control early, build a 68-point lead and cruise the rest of the way.
