Spurs Playbook: Spurs showcase another ATO gem

The Spurs use the weave and a back screen to set up a 3-pointer for Manu Ginobili on an out of bounds play With 1:28 left in the third quarter of the San Antonio Spurs 119-98 drubbing of the Los Angeles Lakers, the Spurs ran an out of bounds play that is worth another look. The play featured a weave directly off the inbounds pass as well as a nasty back screen from 39-year-old Manu Ginobili to set up an eventual Manu 3-pointer. The two actions had something in common: screening to get open. Often times the screener will be wide open as defenses try to stop the ball handler, and the Spurs do...

Spurs close Rodeo Road Trip with an easy win over the Lakers

Spurs close Rodeo Road Trip with an easy win over the Lakers

The outcome was never in doubt after Kawhi Leonard scored 16 points in the first quarter as the Spurs easily defeated the Lakers. Sometimes these afternoon games can be a little scary, because the Spurs sometimes just don’t play very well in the daytime. Maybe that little run in that Manu Ginobili had with a bat was more of a big deal than the team is letting on. But today, against what seems to be an obviously tanking Lakers squad, the Spurs, led by a strong start from Kawhi Leonard and DeWayne Dedmon, had no problem putting the game away early and giving plenty of time to their young...

Manu Ginobili (ankle) will not return to Spurs' game Wednesday

San Antonio Spurs guard/forward Manu Ginobili (left ankle impingement) did not return against the Orlando Magic on Wednesday. What It Means: The Spurs won by 28, so being ruled out didn't really mean much. Ginobili tweaked his ankle on a drive and was down for a couple minutes, but he was able to put some weight on it as he went to the locker room. He'll have the break to get right. Ginobili played 15 minutes tonight, posting just 2 points, 2 assists, and 2 rebounds. His 6.52 nERD was just seventh on the team, and his 93.1 Defensive Rating was the worst among the Spurs to see...

Jonathon Simmons brings the house down with chase-down block on Semaj Christon

Spurs swingman Jonathon Simmons is stripped of the ball by Thunder guard Semaj Christon, but that’s not the end of it. In a very Spur move, Simmons hustles back on defense and then (in a very un-Spurs-like move) finishes with a chase-down block. That’s freakish athleticism you don’t often see in a San Antonio player. Manu Ginobili on Jonathon Simmons block: He looks like a guy at the Olympics trying to go high jump. Unbelievable athletic ability. — Melissa Rohlin (@melissarohlin) February 1, 2017
