Areas of improvement for the streaking Spurs

Areas of improvement for the streaking Spurs

The Spurs won big last night but showed room for improvement with some focus-related lapses. The Spurs took care of business against the Suns on Tuesday night, and now find themselves back at .500. After suffering through their worst November in recent memory, winning just 5 of 15 games, the team has pieced together 3 wins in a row as they head into a rematch with the 17-10 Clippers. It’s tempting to see the victory over the Suns as a continuation of the Spurs return from the abyss that began against the Lakers a week ago. A 25-point margin should be indicative of dominant play, but...

A new Spurs uniform has been revealed: “Earned Edition”

A special uniform for last season’s playoff teams has been revealed. Remember not too long ago when a ghostly-white camouflage Spurs uniform was leaked, and we wondered if they were their “City Edition” uniforms designed for Military Appreciation Night? It turned out that was not the case, as the City Editions ended being closer to last year’s black camo uniforms. However, the white camos have made a return, this time in an official capacity. Nike has released their “Earned Edition” uniforms, which go to the 16 teams who made the 2018 Playoffs. Solidifying a spot in the NBA...

What we learned from the Spurs win over the Suns

What we learned from the Spurs win over the Suns

San Antonio avenges their worst loss of the season by taking care of business at home against Phoenix This was the definition of a no-win situation. Win a game against the worst team in the league (one that’s missing two of its best players, no less) and no one cares. It’s what you’re supposed to do. Lose against them? Well, now you’ve got a problem on your hands. The Spurs 20-point loss to the Suns back in November came near the beginning of a pretty rough stretch. It seemed the surest sign yet that all was not right in Spursland and that we were all in for a bit of a bumpy ride...

Open Thread: The Spurs 12th win this season puts Pop in 4th

Open Thread: The Spurs 12th win this season puts Pop in 4th

Pop passes Pat Riley on the list of all time winningest coaches in the NBA 12. As the analog clock stands, it takes twelve hours for a full rotation. 60 seconds in a minute, 60 minutes in an hour, 24 hours in a day. Each of those numbers divisible by 12. 12 months in a year, 12 zodiac signs, 12 items in a dozen. Many fellowships for people suffering from addition are referred to as Twelve Step programs because of the numbered suggestions the members take toward recovery. There are 12 jurors in most trials, that why the play was called “Twelve Angry Men”. And you can enjoy that as a...

Spurs down Suns to pick up third straight win

Spurs down Suns to pick up third straight win

Led by Bryn Forbes’ season-high 24 points, the Spurs had little trouble taking down the lowly Suns and helping Gregg Popovich reach another career milestone. Someone had to ask the question. Even if Gregg Popovich knew it was coming and even if, for whatever reason, he clearly had no intention of contextualizing, reflecting upon, or at all recognizing the feat of moving into fourth-place all-time in coaching victories with a 111-86 win over the lowly Suns, a team Pop was quick to note was unfairly short-handed and “aggressive all night long”, it had to be asked all the same. And as...

Rudy Gay of the San Antonio Spurs showed off his athleticism and perfect timing as he blocked Josh Jackson of the Phoenix Suns. Per the video posted by Bleacher Report, Jackson thought he had an easy slam after faking out Patty Mills. But then, Gay rotated quickly and had the presence of mind to prepare […] The post Video: Spurs’ Rudy Gay shuts the door on Josh Jackson with vicious block appeared first on ClutchPoints.

San Antonio vs. Phoenix, Final Score: Bryn Forbes’ double-double vanquishes Suns, 111-86

Comfortable wins are comfortable. In Game 3 of the “Homestand of Revenge”, the San Antonio Spurs came out and exacted Revenge 3.0 with a slow, methodical, 111-86 beat-down of the Phoenix Suns on the back of some efficient three-point shooting and Bryn Forbes’ first ever double-double of 24 points and 11 rebounds (a career high). Random Observations Davis Bertans missed his second consecutive game for “personal reasons”. While some took the presence of his mother visiting from Latvia as a sign that Pop was just giving him time off to be with her (which I found hard to believe),...

Lonnie Walker continues to impress for Austin Spurs

Lonnie Walker continues to impress for Austin Spurs

It sure feels like he could play a role in San Antonio this season. Lonnie Walker IV as appeared in four games for the Austin Spurs since returning from a torn meniscus in his knee back at the end of November, and he has followed up his nice debut with more awesomeness. His best game so far came on Dec. 6 in a 91-81 win over the Northern Arizona Suns, when he posted 24 points on 10-19 shooting (including 2-5 from three) along with two rebounds and two assists in 24 minutes of action. He also posted ten points in a Dec. 4 win against the same Suns in Arizona, as well as 14 points and 3...

San Antonio Spurs: Good play from Rudy Gay is crucial

The San Antonio Spurs are not having a good year, but when Rudy Gay plays well they are hard to stop.

LaMarcus Aldridge has been getting well before our eyes

LaMarcus Aldridge has been getting well before our eyes

Don’t look now, but Aldridge has quietly become an efficient shooter again. LaMarcus Aldridge’s start to the 2018-2019 season was inauspicious to say the least. His inefficiency in shooting from all areas of the court caused some to question his ability to find success as the number two option on a team. While his struggles were concerning, I put together an article last month highlighting why I believed his woes were merely an outlier and that he was bound to find his shooting stroke as the season progressed. There’s been a lot to discuss in recent weeks: The defense has still been...

Game Preview: Phoenix Suns vs. San Antonio Spurs

The Spurs have a chance to extend their home winning streak against a banged-up Phoenix team. The times they are a-changing. Would you believe that it’s been ten years since the height of Spurs-Suns rivalry? In back-to-back to playoff series (2007 and 2008), the Phoenix Suns and the San Antonio Spurs were embroiled in a stylistically-opposed tug-of-war that produced some of the most memorable moments for Spurs fans. We laughed as Pop employed the Hack-a-Shaq on the first play of the game, shivered at sights like Steve Nash’s horror-movie makeup nose explosion and Robert Horry’s...

Bulls players tell Jim Boylen he “isn’t Gregg Popovich”

Apparently only Pop is allowed to be hard on his players. Boy, that escalated quickly. It was merely a week ago when the Chicago Bulls fired head coach Fred Hoiberg after a 5-19 start to the season and promoted Jim Boylen to head coach. As some might recall, Boylen was an assistant coach for the Spurs for two seasons, including the 2014 championship. His first order of business was to instill some toughness into a team that fell from 0.500 and a 2017 playoff appearance to just 27-55 last season and appears destined to be one of the two worst teams in the league this season. However, that...
