Spurs beat the Rockets to cap off the preseason

Spurs beat the Rockets to cap off the preseason

The Spurs finished the preseason 3-2 and looking ready to go. With Dejounte Murray sitting out with a right hip contusion, the Spurs closed out the preseason with their 4th different starting line-up, this time featuring Patty Mills, Danny Green, Kyle Anderson, LaMarcus Aldridge, and Pau Gasol. The Houston Rockets were without Chris Paul, who sat with a sore knee. It was almost like deja vu all over again, with the Spurs coming out of the Toyota Center with a win despite missing Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker. Aldridge led the way once again, and while James Harden looked better than Game...

Spurs take advantage of opportunities in rout of Nuggets

Spurs take advantage of opportunities in rout of Nuggets

San Antonio shared the ball and lit it up from downtown, putting together a second dominating performance in a row. The Spurs’ 122-100 rout of the Denver Nuggets was a showcase of this new roster’s strengths, as the ball whizzed around the perimeter and the threes dropped, one after another. It was also a statement by veterans like LaMarcus Aldridge and Danny Green that they’re poised for strong seasons as they both (potentially) approach a summer of free agency. But maybe above all, it was a story of opportunities being recognized and those poised to take advantage of them. That...

Spurs shake off rust and take down Kings

Spurs shake off rust and take down Kings

Danny Green caught fire, Joffrey Lauvergne impressed, and the Spurs put on a dominating performance. In their preseason opener in Sacramento, the Spurs were outplayed by mostly first- and second-year pros. Friday night’s rematch in San Antonio began with more of the same as the team was outscored 24-15 in the first quarter and struggled to move the ball, create off the dribble, and slow down the Kings attack. The Spurs aren’t expecting to hit the ground running this regular season. Earlier this week, Manu Ginobili said that San Antonio won’t “start full throttle”, and Danny...

Final Score: San Antonio Spurs walk away from Sacramento Kings: 113-93

In the second straight preseason game between these two clubs, the Spurs long-distance shots fell. The Spurs had an atrocious first quarter against the Sacramento Kings in their second straight preseason game against each other. Between the turnovers, missed shots, bad passes and general awfulness, it was a difficult 12 minutes to watch and San Antonio ended up down nine points. The rest of the game was a certifiable cakewalk. Between Danny Green playing like a man possessed on both sides of the court and Joffrey Lauvergne leading entire offensive possessions by directing traffic and...

Like Ginobili, Green expects Spurs to face chemistry issues early in season

SAN ANTONIO – Danny Green is in agreement with Manu Ginobili that it’s going to be tough for the Spurs to begin the season in sync given they don’t have the services of two key players in the preseason. Star forward Kawhi Leonard is expected to miss the preseason while rehabbing the sore right quadriceps

Spurs raving about their biggest offseason acquisition

SAN ANTONIO – Judging from his teammates’ comments, Rudy Gay’s future looks bright with the Spurs. “I think he’s going to be great,” guard Danny Green said of the 12th-year swingman. “He’s going to give us that versatility of playing four smalls (because) he can play inside and out and guard bigs. Once he gets

Spurs’ Green shocked by defensive accolade

SAN ANTONIO – Having grown accustomed to being overlooked, guard Danny Green called his selection to the 2016-17 NBA All-Defensive Second Team “shocking.” It was the first time in eight seasons he’s been honored for his defense, so it’s no surprise it caught him off guard. “But it was really nice to get that recognition,”

Danny Green says Gregg Popovich makes players proud

Danny Green said Tuesday that he deeply appreciates having such a socially conscious coach. Green made that comment a day after Gregg Popovich delivered an impassioned speech at Spurs’ media day, saying that the United States “is an embarrassment in the world” because of President Donald Trump’s behavior and how he’s emboldened people who have
