Jakob Poeltl is on his way to becoming an elite finisher

Jakob Poeltl is on his way to becoming an elite finisher

The latest in a long line of surprising San Antonio big men is making noise. The Spurs have a habit of starting off the 4th quarter with a twist on a common action, typically exploiting the defense for easy points. Friday night’s payback game against the Knicks provided a good example. Ahead by 13 with Rudy Gay leading a United Nations of Ball Movement lineup, the Spurs settled in to what looked like a typical post up for their 6’8” forward to go at Henry Ellenson. Rudy sets a down screen for Davis Bertans, who receives the ball from Patty Mills at the top of the key before...

Davis Bertans says Pau Gasol never complained despite being in a tough situation

The ink is still drying on the divorce between Pau Gasol and the San Antonio Spurs, but his former teammates and coaches have had seemingly nothing but high praise for the veteran on his way out the door. Fellow European Davis Bertans had this to say, per Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News: “He […] The post Davis Bertans says Pau Gasol never complained despite being in a tough situation appeared first on ClutchPoints.

It’s good just seeing Dejounte Murray on the Spurs bench

It’s good just seeing Dejounte Murray on the Spurs bench

And so dapper... I don’t have much to say except, for me, this was the season of Dejounte. I was so perplexed by his injury. I was at that game. At first I wanted to blame James Harden who was covering Murray. But the replay showed it was just an unfortunate accident. In typical Spurs fashion, the season of Dejounte soon became the season of DeMar DeRozan, and then Bryn Forbes and then Derrick White...(and even some Davis Bertans mixed with a little Marco Belinelli renaissance)...and Jakob Poeltl. Your get the picture. And the Spurs do what they do. Gregg Popovich brings out the best in...

I was there for the Spurs’ ugliest loss of the year

I was there for the Spurs’ ugliest loss of the year

Losing a game to a team that’s trying to tank is never fun, but here are some sights and sounds from a not-so-Garden variety loss. After attending the first two losses of this year’s Rodeo Road Trip in Sacramento and Golden State, I had hoped my third game would result in a reversal of fortunes for the Spurs in New York. After all, the Knicks aren’t even trying to win their remaining games, so a victory for San Antonio seemed imminent. As you know, it wasn’t. I came clad in my Davis Bertans jersey in anticipation of a glorious Latvian Heritage Night, but the celebration was...
