An unlikely Spurs lineup beat the Grizzlies in Game 5

An unlikely Spurs lineup beat the Grizzlies in Game 5

The Grizzlies loaded up on Kawhi, so we did his work off the ball. A question from day one of this Spurs season was: Who would be the five guys on the floor when the game was on the line? Bill Simmons discussed the possibilities of a crunch time lineup of Kawhi Leonard, Patty Mills, Danny Green, Manu Ginobili and LaMarcus Aldridge with Zach Lowe on his Ringer podcast before the playoffs. There was a Spurs Playbook that looked at that same lineup but with Pau Gasol in for Green. It was hashed over and over in the comments section of Pounding the Rock. But nowhere was there an expectation of...

Green’s 3-point shooting helped Spurs keep Grizzlies at bay

SAN ANTONIO – In Game 1, Danny Green did it with his defense. In Game 2, it was his shooting that stood out. Green scored 12 points on 4 of 5 from 3-point range to help the Spurs claim a 96-82 win over Memphis on Monday night and secure a 2-0 lead in their first-round

San Antonio vs Memphis, Final Score: Spurs beat Grizzlies 96-82

San Antonio heads to Memphis with a 2-0 lead after holding off a furious Memphis comeback After San Antonio built a lead as high as 26 in the first half, Memphis slowly chipped away to bring it within four early in the final period. Wide-Open 3s by Pau Gasol and Tony Parker finally put Memphis away for Game 2, as the Spurs escaped with a huge win. Tony got going early, with a vintage elbow shot, then a vintage floater. He continued his aggressive play, consistently going right at Mike Conley. Danny Green hit a 3 to give the Spurs a 20-12 lead. Conley had another good 1st Q, ending it with...

Could Tim Duncan sign a ‘Romo deal’ with Spurs?

SAN ANTONIO – Tim Duncan made his playoff debut at the Spurs morning shootaround Monday, working out with the team and cracking jokes with his former teammates. “It’s always good to see Timmy here,” Spurs guard Danny Green said. “You could say he lightened the mood.” Spurs guard Patty Mills agreed with that assessment, saying

Conley determined to counter Spurs’ wave of defenders in Game 2

SAN ANTONIO – Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley is bracing for the Spurs throwing another wave of defenders at him Monday night in Game 2. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich had several players take turns defending Conley in Game 1’s 111-82 Spurs romp, including Tony Parker, Danny Green, two-time defending NBA defensive player of the year

San Antonio @ Utah, Final Score: Spurs drop season finale to the Jazz, 101-97

The Spurs lost to a hungry Jazz team in their final regular season tune up. In a game that meant very little for the Spurs and a great deal for the Jazz, San Antonio dropped a close one, 101-97. LaMarcus Aldridge led the Spurs with 18 points, with Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker chipping in 14 apiece. Spurs starters: Tony Parker, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge, Dewayne Dedmon Jazz starters: George Hill, Joe Ingles, Gordon Hayward, Boris Diaw, Rudy Gobert First Quarter: The Spurs didn’t have an ideal start, as the former Spur Hill knocked in a deep three and followed it up...

Who is the Spurs’ Defensive Player of the Year?

Who is the Spurs’ Defensive Player of the Year?

The PtR staff gives out end-of-year awards and discusses what it will take for the Spurs to suffer another early playoff exit. 1) If the Spurs don't make the Western Conference Finals it will be because of ______. Michael Erler: Lack of backcourt scoring. Teams will do their darnedest to get the ball out of Kawhi Leonard's huge mitts, which means he'll have to be a facilitator. If Danny Green, Tony Parker, Patty Mills and Manu Ginobili don't chip in with 40-50 points a night they'll be hard-pressed to win. Jesus Gomez: Their lack of quality depth. It's one thing to be regular season deep....

Signs point to Green returning to action for Spurs tonight

SAN ANTONIO – Danny Green could be back in action Saturday night when the Spurs host the Clippers. The team’s starting shooting guard has been upgraded to questionable after missing the last four games with a left quad contusion, according to the injury report the team released Saturday afternoon. The only other player listed on

Spurs to be without six players in Dallas

SAN ANTONIO – With an eye toward entering the playoffs rested and healthy, the second-seeded Spurs are taking a skeleton crew to Dallas for Friday’s game against the Mavericks. The Spurs announced Thursday that LaMarcus Aldridge (rest), Pau Gasol (rest), Manu Ginobili (right quad contusion), Danny Green (left quad contusion), Kawhi Leonard (rest) and Dejounte

Bad start dooms Spurs against Lakers

Bad start dooms Spurs against Lakers

There’s one less game left in the season now. Well, that was something. With the Spurs on the second game of a back-to-back (SEGABABA) and the team locked into the two-seed I was expecting to see at least LaMarcus Aldridge get some rest and maybe Kawhi Leonard as well with the team needing overtime to take care of the Memphis Grizzlies on Tuesday night. But Gregg Popovich went with his normal starting lineup in this one, minus the injured Danny Green, and let’s just say they didn’t seem particularly interested in this game. The game had an interesting start, with the Lakers...

Green, Ginobili won’t play against Lakers

SAN ANTONIO – Shooting guard Danny Green will miss his third straight game Wednesday night with a left quad contusion, the Spurs announced. The Spurs will also be without backup guard Manu Ginobili (right quad contusion) and rookie point guard Dejounte Murray (groin) when they host the Lakers in the second of a back-to-back set,

Popovich faces ‘tricky’ task of doling out rest for Spurs

SAN ANTONIO – The Spurs injury report released Monday included only two players: Danny Green (quad) and Dejounte Murray (groin) are out. But that doesn’t mean others won’t play Tuesday when the Spurs host Memphis. On Sunday, Green, Murray, LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) and Manu Ginobili (rest) were listed on the injury report as out, but

Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard shine in the Spurs 109-103 win over the Jazz

Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard shine in the Spurs 109-103 win over the Jazz

With half the rotation players resting, the Spurs still managed to edge out a Jazz team missing two starters. We are in the home stretch of the regular season and the Spurs have the second seed on lockdown. That means it's time to find that tough balance between giving key players rest before the postseason while hoping to continue to improve before the playoffs start. In that sense, San Antonio's 109-103 win over the snake-bitten Jazz was a success. Without Patty Mills, Danny Green, Manu Ginobili, LaMarcus Aldridge and David Lee, the Spurs still controlled a tough matchup against a...

San Antonio vs. Utah, Final Score: Spurs stave off Jazz, 109-103

Great performances from Parker, Simmons, Leonard and Gasol help the short-handed Spurs eke out a win. Sunday afternoon, Coach Pop opted to sit Manu Ginobili, LaMarcus Aldridge, Danny Green, Patty Mills and David Lee. This was a practical decision for the Spurs as they are effectively locked in for the two seed. It was also a welcome sign for Utah, who looked to maintain their two game lead over the Clippers for the four seed. First quarter It was Boris Diaw’s first game in San Antonio as a member of the Jazz, and he started off aggressively with two buckets and an offensive rebound. The...
