Spurs take gritty road victory over Timberwolves

Spurs take gritty road victory over Timberwolves

On a DeRozen-less night in Minnesota, the Spurs rose to the challenge and came out on top. Another slow start should have doomed the Spurs to their 15th road loss of the season on Friday night against the Timberwolves. The late scratch of DeMar DeRozan left the team with a starting lineup of Derrick White, Bryn Forbes, Rudy Gay, LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol. That lineup hadn’t seen the floor for a single minute so far this season and it showed. Fortunately, the Timberwolves didn’t exactly explode out of the gate either, with both squads starting off 1 of 5 from the floor. It...

San Antonio at Oklahoma City, Final Score: Sequels are never as good as the original as the Spurs lose to the Thunder 122-112

The Spurs looked out of sorts in the second half as the Thunder took over and won this one going away. In a game with considerably less drama than Thursday’s classic, the Spurs played a strong first half, but faded in the third quarter and let the Thunder take over the game in the fourth as they won easily 122-112. The Spurs didn’t play hard enough or execute well enough to hold off a hot shooting and energetic Thunder squad that just looked to be the better team tonight. Game Flow The Thunder won the opening tip and went inside to Steven Adams who was fouled by Pau Gasol and hit a free...

Pau Gasol out vs. the Thunder for rest

We have our first “rest” game of the season. Pau Gasol will miss tonight’s nationally-televised game between the Spurs and Thunder for rest. Gay and Gasol are both out, per Pop. He said Poeltl won't start. Asked who will, he said, "We'll figure it out." Could be Cunningham.— Tom Orsborn (@tom_orsborn) January 11, 2019 Gasol has appeared in three of the last five games since returning from an injured foot. He played nearly 20 minutes in last night’s loss to the Grizzles — the most since his return — as the Spurs battled foul trouble. For the season, he has appeared in 12...

San Antonio vs. Memphis, Final Score: Spurs hold off pesky Grizzlies for 108-88 win

A big second quarter won this game for the Spurs. It wasn’t always pretty, but the Spurs took care of the Memphis Grizzlies, staving off a late comeback attempt for a 108-88 win. Five Spurs scored in double-figures, led by 19 from Derrick White. Mike Conley had 21 points for Grizzles. The Spurs have now matched their season-high of four-straight wins and move to 23-17, good for sixth in the West. Random Observations The Grizzlies have three former Spurs: Kyle Anderson, Garrett Temple, and JaMychal Green, which is nice, but the Spurs can top it with four former Grizzlies: Pau Gasol,...

Pau Gasol available vs. Nuggets after missing 26 games

It’s unclear whether Pau will play, but at least he’ll be available. Pau Gasol could return to the court for the first time since Nov 4, the Spurs announced. He’s listed as available for the game against the Nuggets. Gasol has missed the past 26 games due to a foot injury that had him on a walking boot. While initially there was no diagnosis available to the media, it was later revealed that he had suffered a stress fracture. There was no timetable for his return, but he had recently started doing contact workouts. Clearly the medical staff is confident that the issue is in the past...

How the Spurs should manage the return of Pau Gasol

How the Spurs should manage the return of Pau Gasol

Gasol’s return seems imminent, and finding a way to insert him back into the lineup could be tricky. Pau Gasol has missed the past 26 games with a stress fracture in his left foot. While the Spurs have yet to put an official date to Gasol’s return, he’s been participating in shootaround and should be back on the court sooner rather than later. What I’ve been trying to wrap my head around lately is whether or not Gasol’s return is good for the Spurs. The Spurs have finally settled into regular rotations, which is something I haven’t seen in nearly two years. The result has been...
