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 @ Minnesota, Final Score: Spurs overcome Timberwolves 116-113

Spurs sweep their road streak 2-0. On Wednesday night, San Antonio methodically made its way back from down 23-4 to win 116-113 behind 25 from LaMarcus Aldridge, 22 from Rudy Gay and 19 from Marco Belinelli on a night when DeMar DeRozan didn’t play (left ankle). The Timberwolves kept it tight throughout, but the Spurs defense tightened when it matter and Davis Bertans made sure that Derrick Rose couldn’t kit a desperation three to tie at the final buzzer. 1st Quarter - SPURS 28 Minnesota 31 Minnesota came in smarting from a 42-point loss to Jimmy Butler and the 76ers.

Spurs bench sparks comeback win over Mavericks

Spurs bench sparks comeback win over Mavericks

With the stars struggling, the bench did the heavy lifting to lead the Spurs to a valuable road victory. Well, that was fun. After looking lost for most of the first half, the Spurs pulled off a dramatic comeback against the Mavericks in the final two quarters to steal a much-needed win. The bench played a huge role in securing the 105-101 victory that allows San Antonio to put more separation in the standings with a fellow playoff contender. With Marco Belinelli and Rudy Gay back in the active roster, there was hope that the Spurs were going to regain the dominant form they had showed in...

Open Thread: The Spurs hiccup could be less about DeMar DeRozan

What Rudy Gay’s probability in Dallas does to the starting line-up The Spurs starting line-ups have been very telling of the injury situation in San Antonio this season. For starters, there is no Dejounte Murray. It’s been so long since we’ve seen him play that I now have to remind myself that he is in fact still on the roster. At the top of games on Fox Sports Southwest, Bill Land no longer even mentions it during the Methodist Healthcare injury report. He’s still there in the graphic, but unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re already in the know. So now you have Bryn...

Derrick White makes manufacturing points look effortless

Derrick White makes manufacturing points look effortless

San Antonio’s young point guard is excelling in setting up easy buckets. The Spurs’ offense looks a little broken right now. Over their last four games, the Spurs are scoring just 107.2 points per 100 possessions, far below their season average of 113.5, and that’s including their offensive explosion against the Thunder. Without Rudy Gay over that period, and with DeMar DeRozan in a slump, the team has struggled to score. In the three of those games that didn’t include outright dominance from LaMarcus Aldridge and what may have been the best team-wide three point shooting night in...

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...

Apparently good offenses CAN be built around the mid-range

Who needs Kawhi and threes when you have The System? Not too long ago, there was a growing concern that the current iteration of the Spurs weren’t going to be good enough for. . .anything. After a blockbuster summer trade sent their two best defenders (one also being their MVP on offense) to Toronto, the Spurs initially struggled. The defense was horrible, especially after Dejounte Murray was lost for the season to a torn ACL, and the offense leaned too heavily on DeMar DeRozan, LaMarcus Aldridge, and at times Rudy Gay to produce. A brutal November schedule with little room for...
