The Spurs finished their thoroughly unsurprising sweep of a bunch of guys wearing Grizzlies jerseys today, backhoeing a final heap of dirt onto Memphis’ season. In the final moments of the 116-95 thumping, Grizzlies fans stood and applauded their team’s efforts, which is usually the sort of shit you do for no one past…
Grizzlies mascot Grizz had a pro wrestling routine last season, and he’s back at it this year as he tormented a poor ersatz Spurs mascot during a timeout in tonight’s game three. It didn’t help Memphis much, but it’s fun to watch:
The Golden State Warriors pulled off a fantastic triple tonight with their 92-86 win over the Spurs. They won straight-up as the greatest 3.5-point underdogs the league may ever see. They handed their fiercest rival the only home loss of the season, denying San Antonio a chance to top the ’85-’86 Celtics (40-1 at…
Gregg Popovich rested his starters last night in Oklahoma City, or rather, he unleashed Boban Marjanovic on the Thunder. He didn’t exactly play very well (somehow he only grabbed six rebounds?), but he did manage to pull off the most glacial dunk of the 2016 season, over 60 percent of OKC’s starting lineup.
The Spurs dealt the Warriors their seventh loss of the season last night down in San Antonio, and held the Dubs to just 79 points in the process. Those who switched over from college basketball hoping for a more exciting game probably would have had more fun sticking with March Madness, since the Spurs made the game…
It’s almost time for the NBA playoffs, otherwise known as the time of year when non-Clippers fans are reminded that Austin Rivers still, somehow, plays 20 minutes a game. Based on this play from last night’s Clippers-Spurs game, Rivers is ready to do his thing on the big stage.
While Jamal Crawford was shooting free throws during Tuesday night’s game against the Spurs, the NBA TV mics picked up a high-pitched Spurs fan attempting to heckle his teammate J.J. Redick:
The San Antonio Spurs announced tonight that Peter Holt has retired as chairman and CEO of Spurs Sports & Entertainment—the company that owns the Spurs and a number of other San Antonio-area sports teams—which Holt has led since 1996. He will be replaced by his wife, Julianna Hawn Holt, who will also take his seat on…
On February 4, the San Antonio Spurs announced that Manu Ginobili would miss a month after requiring testicular surgery to repair whatever happened to his Ginobilis when Ryan Anderson plunked them with a stray knee.
The Spurs lost to the Clippers last night in L.A., 105-86. In typically passive-aggressive Spurs fashion they managed to deflate the game before it happened, holding out Kawhi Leonard with “calf tightness,” so who the hell knows what the result means. Probably nothing. That probably does not make Danny Green feel much…
If Timofey Mozgov has taught us one thing, it’s that big, oafish centers are a perfect fit for low-budget local commercials. So we’re very pleased to see that Spurs center Boban “Not Some Sort Of Odd Thing” Marjanovic has gotten himself into the game.
All-Star Weekend is a good breather from one of the least up-for-grabs NBA seasons in recent memory. If we want to be honest with ourselves, there are only three teams with realistic title hopes. And if we want to be really honest, the Cavs probably can’t hang with the West’s best—there are only two. And—c’mon now, I…
The San Antonio Spurs announced today that Manu Ginobili will be out for at least a month after needing testicular surgery. Ginobili suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of Wednesday’s game against the Pelicans.
Because the NBA refuses to admit that intentional fouling is a real problem, its scourge is spreading. Tonight’s games featured four different players getting hacked, a new strategy that pushes the rulebook to the limit, and a refinement of the most hilarious kind of intentional foul.
Once Gregg Popovich opted to sit Tim Duncan for Monday night’s matchup, we were never going to get a complete picture of the Warriors’ and Spurs’ relative abilities. But in laying waste to the Spurs 120-90, the Warriors demonstrated that even when Duncan returns, the Spurs will face an uphill slog.
Tonight’s intensely-anticipated Spurs-Warriors matchup is going Golden State’s way, and in a big way, early. Leading the charge, expectedly, is the MVP Stephen Curry. He’s singlehandedly making us jaded to his own highlights.
While the Spurs were in New York for a Jan. 11 game against the Nets, coach Gregg Popovich apparently nabbed a ticket to Hamilton. Another audience member got the evidence by taking a photo with Popovich, who looked absolutely delighted in his beatnik sweater.
San Antonio’s “sort of an odd thing” Boban Marjanović (pictured here) is 7-foot-3, very strong, and has hands the size of Manu Ginobili. What I am saying here is that one can only do so much to prevent him from catching and dunking basketballs. Sometimes he’s just gonna catch a basketball and dunk it!
