Photo by Dylan Buell/ Pop and the Spurs face a worthy coaching nemesis It always feels good to snap a losing streak. And in a season full of such streaks, and low on victories, every win feels cathartic. However, Wembymania aside, there’s still a section of the season left to play in a league where you have to able to move on quickly. After very publicly thwarting his rookie rival, Victor Wembanyama and the Spurs are going to have their hands full with one of the best offenses in the league as the Rick Carlisle and the Pacers come to town. Long considered to be one...

The Short and Long of it

Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports Hoping Patty Mills finds a good new home, and the joy of watching Victor Wembanyama. The Atlanta Hawks waived Spurs fan-favorite Patty Mills on Thursday. While Patty has bounced around a bit recently, I will always think of Patty in a Spurs jersey — or in the national jersey of his beloved Australia. Along with the Great Tim Duncan, Patty has been one of the greatest teammates in the league since he debuted. He has consistently led the league in sprinting over to help a fallen teammate off the floor (stats unofficial, but nonetheless...

What we learned from the Spurs victory over the Thunder

Daniel Dunn-USA TODAY Sports A rivalry was born. If January’s physical battle between Wembanyama and OKC’s Chet Holmgen in a fleeting Thunder blowout win indicated that a rivalry was brewing, Thursday stamped its arrival. Only it’s become deeper than the two lanky big men; both teams were desperate Thursday night. Whether Victor Wembanyama’s routine eruption, Devin Vassell’s fourth quarter or Tre Jones’ continued hot hand from beyond the arc, the Spurs wore confidence on their chest and motivation in their movement en route to a 132-118 statement victory...

One of the NBA’s premiere player rivalries, whether it’s forced or not, have become the rookie big men out west. Victor Wembanyama and Chet Holmgren are a fascinating matchup for basketball fans. Both are lanky seven-footers who play at a high skill level, space the floor and erase shots at the rim. Their race for Rookie of the Year has become one of the most fun to watch in recent memory. These young titans will clash once again in the San Antonio Spurs first home...

Victor Wembanyama does a bit of everything in Spurs’ loss to the Timberwolves

Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports The more you lose, the more you want to win. Victor Wembanyama wasted no time in recording his fourth straight double-double despite the Spurs’ struggles in adding to the win column. Against the Timberwolves, he recorded 17 points, 13 rebounds, and continued the block party with 4 swats, one short of having 5 blocks in 4 straight games. Devin Vassell went full Energizer Bunny orbiting around Zach Collins until the big man finally fed Vassell who bullied his way to the rim for an emphatic dunk. Vassell led the team with 21 points and...

Photo by Alex Goodlett/ Polling the Pounders on the Spurs big questions in the last leg of the NBA season. The San Antonio Spurs are entering the last stretch of the NBA season. With just one more game to go on the rodeo road trip, their schedule should normalize over the last 20+ games. Last season this was a period for player development and experimentation (or tanking, as some would call it.) With no Victor Wembanyama in sight in the 2024 draft (perfectly fine, they have Victor Wembanyama at home) there isn’t as great of an incentive to tank. Rather, that last...

Photo by Chris Nicoll/NBAE via The rookie has been incredible this season, but how much better can he be?  Since the return to basketball post-All-Star break, the San Antonio Spurs rookie Victor Wembanyama has been nothing short of exceptional. Averaging an impressive 22.7 points, 11 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 3.7 steals, and 5 blocks per game, Wemby’s performance on the court has captured attention. Notably, he narrowly missed achieving back-to-back 5/5/5/5/5 games by one assist…only to achieve it the very next night. Wembanyama’s evolution into a hyper-productive...

Rob Gray-USA TODAY Sports Spurs deficit in the first half was simply too much to overcome, but at least their top two players showed up. Coming off a loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday, the San Antonio Spurs were looking to get a win in Salt Lake City against the Utah Jazz. Unfortunately, a poor first half doomed any hopes of winning as they lost 128-109. Victor Wembanyama had another great game with 22 points, 10 rebounds, five blocks, two assists, and a steal.
