Final Score: Spurs fall to Mavs, 101-94

After a brilliant start, San Antonio fell apart in the second quarter, and it was the Dallas' game from then on. The Spurs end their three game winning streak at the hands of the Mavericks, 101-94, and play them again on Friday. After a torturing loss to Dallas way back in December, when none of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Kawhi Leonard, or Tiago Splitter were active, tonight the Spurs attempted to redeem themselves, and continue frighten to rest of the league with their their late-season surge. San Antonio started the game off strong. Splitter, coming off of a 23 point game...

Timberwolves at Spurs Game Thread

The Wolves 4 game road trip ends this evening in San Antonio against the Spurs. Wolves at Spurs6:00 pm CDTFS North The Wolves will look to avoid an 0-4 road trip tonight when the take on the Spurs in San Antionio. The Spurs have started rounding into post-season form following a somewhat indifferent season up until a couple of weeks ago. They won six in row until they fell in overtime to Kyrie Irving's 57 and the Cavaliers on Thursday night. The Spurs are finally getting healthy and looking more like the contender they have been seemingly forever, as Tony Parker, bothered by a hamstring...

Kyle Anderson and the rule of realistic expectations

The Spurs bench has hardly lit the world on fire, yet the team still won't play their well-regarded rookie. So what gives? Gregg Popovich sure seems to have his hands full at the moment, even for someone with the most deepest and experienced rosters. He seems to have settled on the starters, with Tiago Splitter reclaiming his job after a month-long trial run with Aron Baynes that was somewhat successful for him but fairly disastrous for the team as a whole. Pop also seems to have gone back to last year's rotation, now that Tony Parker is back whole, meaning that Patty Mills is the backup...

Is Tony Parker's excellent recent play sustainable?

In the latest edition of In the Bonus, the PtR staff discusses Parker's excellent recent play, the win streak, possible playoff match ups, who should win MVP and which team we are rooting for to win the lottery. 1 - Tony Parker has looked better recently, which suggests he might be over his hamstring injury. Is the level he's showed lately sustainable? Michael Erler: He has his full burst back, he's as quick as I've seen him in a couple years right now, dribbling through multiple people with ease. He's found fourth and fifth gear again no question. I don't see why it wouldn't be sustainable...

Spurs keep streaking thanks to more steals and slams from Kawhi Leonard

Leonard may specialize in thievery, but the Raptors almost stole the game from the Spurs. Game 63 Vs. Toronto: Spurs 117, Raptors 107  Rec: 40-23  3rd in Southwest, 6th in West  Streak: W-6 You know, for a team that allowed 66 points in the second half to a squad which had lost eight of their previous nine games, the Spurs didn't look half bad out there. In what's been a running theme, San Antonio won its sixth straight, tied with their spunky ABA brethren Indiana Pacers, thanks largely to Tony Parker rediscovering his zip and Kawhi Leonard continuing to imitate a man-eating tarantula....

Power Rankings Week 19: Tony Parker and the Spurs are back on track

With Tony Parker looking dominant again, the Spurs are in a five-game win streak and in the middle of a six-game homestead that could help them climb in the standings. Most Spurs fans know that, while it gets most of the attention, the Rodeo Road Trip is not nearly as important as what comes after: the final stretch of the regular season. This year that was doubly true since a break in the schedule had the Spurs playing the six games following it at home. If they were going to show signs of life and make a push up the standings, it had to happen then or it would not happen at all....

Kawhi Leonard is learning the balancing act that Tony Parker eventually mastered

As Kawhi becomes a star and takes on more responsibilities in the Spurs system, he can look to his point guard for a blueprint on how to handle the challenge. To a large degree, the story of the 2013-14 Spurs season has been the tale of Kawhi Leonard's ascendance and inability to fully ascend -- whether due to injury, growing pains or simply needing to figure out how to carry a larger load of San Antonio's offense while growing into an NBA Superstar. That's the theme of my weekly appearance on the Phil Naessens show, and while we had a connectivity issue at the end of our talk, it happened...

Spurs beat Bulls in atypical fashion

The Spurs beat a depleted Bulls squad in a very atypical fashion on Sunday, with dominant ball control, transition offense and excellent individual performances from Tony Parker and Kawhi Leonard. I suppose there are many paths up the mountain, and this one offered some pretty scenic views. Spurs 116, Bulls 105 - Mar 8, '15 The Spurs put together a solid, if unusual effort on Sunday, scoring the ball at a quick clip in one of the fastest paced games of the season (over 100 possessions).  Tony Parker once again led the way with a phenomenal performance, racking up 32 points on just 19...

Tony Parker scores 15 consecutive points against Bulls

Tony Parker looked dominant for the first time this season. Tony Parker has been looking better and better lately. In the two games before Sunday's match against the Bulls, he had 19 and 24 points, building up to his 32-point explosion. For a stretch in the third quarter he was the Spurs' offense, scoring 15 straight points. He scored at the rim and from mid-range, showing off how hard to stop he is when he's in rhythm. That stretch probably has the rest of the Western Conference shivering. Parker is finally healthy and confident in his abilities again and that makes the Spurs much...

Tony Parker stars again in win over Nuggets

It's amazing how easy it is to score when the point guard can move faster than the opponent's power forward. Game 61 Vs. Denver: Spurs 120, Nuggets 111   Rec: 38-23   4th in Southwest, 7th in West  Streak: W-4 It hasn't exactly been a season to write home to Paris about for Tony Parker, so one would think that after he's finally turned the corner of stringing consecutive good outings together, he'd want to share his relief with the world. Eh, not so much, as it turned out. "I don't want to talk about it and jinx it," Parker said after San Antonio held on to beat the Nuggets 120-111 at...

GIF Breakdown: Spurs vs. Kings

Three wins in a row! Let's look at some of the plays that stood out from the Spurs' drubbing of the Kings on Wednesday night. Kawhi Leonard had this emphatic jam on Boogie Cousins after he beat Ben McLemore on the perimeter. Such a forceful dunk from Game-MVP Kawhi. l Tony Parker and Tim Duncan run a give-and-go, Tony gets into the lane and draws Omri Casspe's attention which leaves Kawhi free to drift just below the break. Tony hits Whi with a solid bounce-pass and the cornrowed-one puts three on the scoreboard for the good guys. The only guy actually playing in the league that...

Parker hopes turnaround is underway after brutal stretch

Tony Parker wasn't about to gloat after crossing up Andre Miller in Wednesday's victory over Sacramento. Parker wasn't about to gloat. After looking more than a little aged himself during his recent slump, how could he? No, he was pleased simply for a glimpse of his old self with 19 points, which he hopes is a sign of things to come.
