San Antonio Spurs: Good play from Rudy Gay is crucial

The Spurs are out to prove midrange skeptics wrong

The Spurs’ war on basketball math is official. The Spurs currently rank 29th in three-pointers attempted and lead the league by a mile in attempts from midrange, thanks to a throwback triptych of LaMarcus Aldridge, DeMar DeRozan and Rudy Gay. It’s a stylistic choice that many observers of the league would not only consider outdated but objectively flawed in a new NBA. “The midrange is dead,” proclaimed former Spurs analytics expert Kirk Goldsberry. The Spurs are falling behind the rest of the NBA, wrote SBNation’s Kristian Winfield. “It’s one thing to coach to your...

Spurs sharpen throwback form in win over Jazz

Spurs sharpen throwback form in win over Jazz

With a combined 69 points (and zero three-pointers) from DeMar DeRozan, Rudy Gay and LaMarcus Aldridge, the Spurs picked up a second win in a row by tightening the defense and imposing their retrograde style on the visitors. Almost anyone on the planet would be ignoring conventional wisdom by deciding to dribble a basketball in the direction of Rudy Gobert as he lurches patiently under the basket. The defending Defensive Player of the Year and owner of a 7’9” wingspan represents a physical manifestation of an opponent’s bad intentions, poised to obliterate shots at the rim at any...

San Antonio vs. Utah, Final Score: Spurs get their revenge on the Jazz 110-97

San Antonio vs. Utah, Final Score: Spurs get their revenge on the Jazz 110-97

Last Tuesday you beat us by 34, the very next day the Lakers put us away. This Sunday, to save me from tears, Rudy Gay was something special. Tge Spurs followed their an emotional comeback win over the Lakers, with a string effort against a Jazz team that destroyed them last week. Early shot-making by LaMarcus Aldridge and Marco Belinelli was followed by an great all-around effort from DeMar DeRozan who posted 28-8-6 in San Antonio’s 13-point win. Roundup: The flow of the game was a grind for both teams at the start. San Antonio started out solid on defense, but some blown rotations...

The Spurs hit plenty of milestones in win over Lakers

Something about these Lakers games brings out the best of the Spurs. Another Spurs — Lakers game, another classic with many milestones set. We did this after the Spurs’ overtime classic win against LeBron James & Co. back in October, and we’re doing it again tonight thanks to the always reliable Jordan Howenstine. Let’s start with DeMar DeRozan, who had himself another ho-hum 36-point night, but this one means more in large part because scoring 30+ points in all four match-ups against the Lakers put him in some pretty elite company. DeMar DeRozan scored 30+ points in all four...

Mitchell nets 20, Gobert adds 18 as Jazz beat Spurs 139-105

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Donovan Mitchell scored 20 points and Rudy Gobert had 18 points and 10 rebounds as the Utah Jazz defeated the San Antonio Spurs 139-105 Tuesday night. Kyle Korver scored 15 points in his first home game since he returned to the Jazz, and Derrick Favors added 14 points as Utah won for the first time at home in nearly a month. The Jazz beat Boston 123-115 on Nov. 9, but have been on the road much of the season and haven't found a rhythm at home. Jakob Poeltl scored a career-high 20 points for the Spurs. DeMar DeRozan and LaMarcus Aldridge each scored 16 points for San...

The Spurs unleashed DeMar DeRozan in the open court

An underutilized weapon took over in Sunday’s second half. Even in the midst of the team-wide hot streak, the Spurs were riding last night against the Blazers, DeMar DeRozan’s 15 straight points at the end of the third stood out. His run carried the Spurs from down 4 with just under 5 minutes left in the third, to up 4 at the 1 minute mark. DeMar poured it in from all angles, hitting turnarounds and fadeaways, driving and cutting for layups, and drawing fouls. He was especially deadly in transition and early offense, going 3 of 3 with an and-1 for 7 points on just 4 possessions in that...

Spurs suspend disbelief in bounce-back win over Blazers

The Spurs doubled down on their maligned style of play, rode a season-high performance from DeMar DeRozan, and snapped their losing skid. Back-to-back 30-point losses, a further slide below the .500 mark and roughly a thousand takes on the Spurs roster being untalented, the defense unsalvageable, Gregg Popovich too stylistically rigid and the franchise left behind in a brave new NBA. It was fair for doubt to creep in — and, to be honest, it still is. After all, the 2018-19 Spurs are here to test your capacity to suspend disbelief, especially in how basketball games are meant to be won...

DeRozan Exploits Porous Blazers’ Defense In Spurs Victory

Despite a 37-point explosion from Damian Lillard, Portland fell to San Antonio 131-118. The Spurs handed the Trail Blazers their fifth loss in six games in decisive fashion on Sunday. Portland’s defense struggled once again, which allowed San Antonio to record 131 points on 60.2 percent shooting from the field. Former Raptors star DeMar DeRozan’s 36-point outburst led the way for the Spurs, but was closely followed by a close-to-perfect 29-point night from LaMarcus Aldridge. Damian Lillard led all scorers with 37 points, but San Antonio’s efficiency was just too much for Portland....
