How Much Longer Can The Clippers Survive With This Bench?

Being in a 1-1 series tie with the San Antonio Spurs isn’t the worst position for the Los Angeles Clippers to find themselves in. The team has shown plenty of positive signs throughout the first two games of this series—Blake Griffin is dunking on fools! Chris Paul is in Playoff Mode! DeAndre Jordan actually made… » 4/23/15 9:30am 4/23/15 9:30am

K.J. McDaniels Gets Two Chasedown Blocks In 10 Seconds


Houston Rockets rookie shooting guard K.J. McDaniels has quickly established himself as one of the best shot-blocking guards in the league. He’s averaging 1.1 blocks per game while playing just 22 minutes a night, and his 70 blocks put him ahead of big men like Taj Gibson, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Kenneth Faried. During… » 4/09/15 2:31pm 4/09/15 2:31pm

Gregg Popovich Calls Team "Pathetic" After Loss To Knicks

Last night, Gregg Popovich's San Antonio Spurs somehow managed to lose an overtime game to the Knicks, a team that regularly turns possessions into crimes against humanity. This wasn't one of those games where Pop sat all of his starters, either. This was a full-strength squad getting beasted by the likes of Alexey… » 3/18/15 10:09am 3/18/15 10:09am

Kyrie Irving Unleashes All Hell In The Perfect Meaningless Game

San Antonio isn't usually a place for mid-March NBA thrills. Oh, the latter-day Spurs remain perfectly capable of playing the sort of gyroscoping, pinball-passing game pretty enough to goose Red Auerbach's carcass from 6 to 12, but it's very a long season and a very old team and while you can usually count on them for… » 3/13/15 10:21am 3/13/15 10:21am

Maybe Tony Parker And The Spurs Aren't Dead Yet

We've all looked foolish for the Is the sun finally setting on San Antonio? thing so many years in a row now that there's an invisible phone book-sized volume of hedges and mealymouthed qualifications and built-in escape routes affixed to the front of each new iteration of it. You just nod in its direction, at this… » 3/09/15 4:17pm 3/09/15 4:17pm

Marco Belinelli Sinks Game-Winner To Give Popovich His 1,000th Win

Gregg Popovich won his 1,000th game tonight, becoming just the ninth coach—and only active one—to reach the mark. And at the risk of deifying the man, the way his Spurs beat the Pacers tonight was perfectly Popovich-ian. Tied with 15 seconds remaining, the unheralded draft choice that developed into a budding… » 2/10/15 12:54am 2/10/15 12:54am

Boris Diaw Buzzer-Beater Attempt Beans Gregg Popovich

It's probably a bad idea to hit your coach in the head with a basketball, but somehow that happened tonight as Boris Diaw's poor attempt at a first-half buzzer-beater instead hit coach Gregg Popovich in the head as Pop headed toward the locker room, no doubt disgusted by the Spurs' poor play. Pop didn't seem to even… » 1/31/15 10:33pm 1/31/15 10:33pm

Animated Short Imagines The San Antonio Spurs As A Commando Team

Here is a fun cartoon that comes from the creative minds at BallerBall, that imagines the Spurs—led by Pop, natch—as a wrongfully convicted commando team who subsequently escape prison and hide "in plain sight as the most boring team in professional sports." The whole seven minutes is like that, a pretty funny mix… » 1/08/15 5:30pm 1/08/15 5:30pm
