The Spurs hit their first 14 three-pointers against the Thunder

The Spurs are red-hot tonight! Led by a red-hot Marco Belinelli, the Spurs hit their first 14 threes of the game, including going 10-10 in the first half, an NBA-best for any half over the last 20 years. It was the most threes the Spurs had opened a game hitting since they hit their first 11 against the Kings in 2002. Belinelli hit 5-5, including three straight off steals in a 90-second span late in the first quarter, along with two from Patty Mills, three from Davis Bertans. Squad went 10/10 from DEEP in the first half. #GoSpursGo pic.twitter.com/MEgnOct412— San Antonio Spurs...

Spurs vs. Thunder Game Thread

Welcome to the Game Thread. Veterans of the Game Thread know how we do things around here, but for all you newbies we have a few rules. Our community guidelines apply and basically say be cool, no personal attacks, don’t troll and don’t swear too much. Welcome to the game thread. The Spurs had a rough night last night against Memphis, with Davis Bertans getting ejected for muttering something under his breath, and Derrick White picking up 5 fouls for breathing hard on Mike Conley, and having to play short minutes. With Rudy Gay out with a wrist injury, it just wasn’t enough against...

The Grizzlies defense exacerbated the Spurs poor night

The Grizzlies defense exacerbated the Spurs poor night

Sometimes you eat the bear; sometimes the bear eats you The Spurs’ offense was lost in the woods for much of Wednesday night’s game against the Grizzlies. Without Rudy Gay (or Derrick White and Davis Bertans for much of the 2nd half), the team never found its rhythm, scoring just 88.7 points per 100 possessions, their worst output of the season. The first half, in particular, was rough. They struggled to generate open shots, and even when they did, they missed. The Spurs are averaging about 11 open and wide open shots per quarter so far this season, but took only 7 in the first quarter...

Davis Bertans just makes the Spurs’ offense better

The Latvian Laser showed off his playmaking skills against the Pistons The Spurs’ victory over the Pistons on Monday night was another total team effort. With 5 players scoring in double digits and 8 players contributing 24 assists, the Spurs egalitarian offense continued its tear through opposing defenses, scoring nearly 128 points per 100 possessions against the Pistons’ 12th ranked defense. The twin pillars of the team’s attack, DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge, were their usual outstanding selves, combining for 51 points on a true shooting % of 68.2. But on a night where the...

With Derrick White and Davis Bertans the Spurs have regained their identity

The two role players have given San Antonio the edge it was lacking. After a rocky start of the season, the Spurs have slowly started to find an identity. They don’t rely exclusively on the stars to generate offense and they have developed a cohesiveness on defense that just wasn’t there back in November. Several factors contributed to that progress, including Gregg Popovich finding his core lineups and tweaking both the offensive and defensive systems. Yet the emergence of two role players has been as important as anything else in the process. Davis Bertans and Derrick White have...

San Antonio vs. Minnesota, Final Score: Spurs reserves take care of Wolves 124-98

Spurs reserves put the game away with hot shooting from Bertans, Belinelli as the Spurs put away the Timberwolves The Spurs have been on a hot streak lately, and tonight it was the bench players who put away the Minnesota Timberwolves with hot shooting from Marco Belinelli and Davis Bertans sealing the game in the second half as LaMarcus Aldridge and DeMar Aldridge sat on the bench resting for the second half. Derrick White had a solid game on defense, taking on taller players on switches and holding his own as often as not. Robert Covington was solid for the Timberwolves, hitting outside...

San Antonio vs. Philadelphia, Final Score: Spurs knock out the Sixers 123-96

I’m dreaming of a Spurs winning record, just like the ones I used to know. The Spurs swarmed on defense and took advantage of cold shooting by the Sixers to put away the game early in the 4th quarter behind LaMarcus Aldridge’s 20 points and 10 rebounds. Rudy Gay and DeMar DeRozan also poured in 21 and 20 points, respectively. Davis Bertans led the bench with 16 points and 6 hard-earned rebounds. San Antonio was able to wrap up their string of home games with a 5-1 record. Roundup: The Sixers figured to be a tough match-up, and they certainly were because the Spurs fell behind early...
