How the Spurs have done more than survive without Tim Duncan

How the Spurs have done more than survive without Tim Duncan

Here are today’s best Spurs news and articles. With Tim Duncan announcing his retirement last summer, the 2016-17 season was supposed to be one of transition for the Spurs. They were still expected to make the playoffs as a lower seed and possibly even continue their 50-win streak, but that would be about it. Instead, they have far and away the second best record in the league and own a 10-1 record against the other main contenders, including the Warriors, Rockets, Cavaliers, Celtics and Wizards. (I’ve dropped the Raptors from this category.) Chris de Silva over at 16 Wins a Ring took...

If the Wizards are going to improve defensively, it must start with John Wall

If the Wizards are going to improve defensively, it must start with John Wall

It’s no secret that the Wizards have been woeful on defense since the All-Star break. What was once considered a major strong suit for this team has turned into a glaring weakness overnight. Since the All-Star break, the Wizards rank 22nd in the league in Defensive Rating. There are several reasons why the defense has taken a hit over the past month but the most infuriating, yet most fixable reason, starts with the head of the snake; John Wall. Wall can be a top defender in this league when he’s engaged. But for whatever reason recently, there have been too many instances recently when...

Isaiah Thomas makes winning return to Celtics lineup from two-game absence

On the list of trademark Isaiah Thomas plays, a put-back tip-in probably ranks somewhere near the bottom.Yet, when looking for his signature highlight in last night’s 110-102 win against the Washington Wizards at the Garden, that’s exactly what Thomas did in his first game back after missing two due to a bone bruise on his right knee.At the end of the third quarter, Marcus Smart drove to the hoop and had his shot hang and fall off the front rim, but Thomas swooped in and tipped the ball in as the buzzer sounded to extend the C’s lead to 92-75. Although the Wizards made it interesting in...

Renewed rivalry with Wizards brings best out of Celtics

The Celtics ended their regular-season series with the Washington Wizards in a four-game split and all that’s left now is a wish-list item — for a playoff series between two teams not only with mutual dislike, but a knack from drawing some great basketball out of each other.The C’s beat the Wizards, 110-102, last night at the Garden while celebrating the return of Isaiah Thomas to the lineup after a two-game, knee-related absence. Thomas picked up in full flow, scoring 25 points to go along with four assists and four rebounds.Backcourt mate Avery Bradley seemed to benefit just as much...

Celtics, Wizards downplay budding rivalry

By all appearances, the Washington Wizards wore their normal attire for last night’s showdown with the Celtics at the Garden.The Wizards locker room felt a lot less morbid, unlike before the previous meeting between these teams on Jan. 24, a 123-108 Celtics loss. Then, of course, the Washington players arrived at the Verizon Center dressed in black, as Wizards point guard John Wall called the game a “funeral” for the Celtics.Such terminology is not the normal pregame chit-chat during the regular season. It does, however, lend credence to the thought that a rivalry is developing between...
