What a shot by Manu Ginobili! Don't miss San Antonio Spurs, Monday at 9pm/et on NBA TV!
The San Antonio Spurs' Gregg Popovich, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker & Manu Ginobili sit down for a rare, candid conversation reflecting on more than a decade of excellence - 9pm/et on NBA TV!
SAN ANTONIO — From the last seat at the end of the bench — the game decided and the San Antonio Spurs minutes away the NBA championship — LeBron James clapped after Michael Beasley made a meaningless shot. When Chris Bosh checked out of the game with 3 minutes, 17 seconds left in the Spurs' demolition of his Miami Heat, James met Bosh near halfcourt at the scorer's table for a hug. And when the clocked ticked toward zero, James marched toward the Spurs bench to offer congratulations. He hugged Kawhi Leonard first, then Gregg Popovich — the two have a deep mutual appreciation — followed by Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and then finally a long embrace with former teammate Danny Green. James then bolted for the Heat locker room following San Antonio's 104-87 victory in Game 5 Sunday. He eventually made his way to the postgame news conference and acknowledged one of those painful truths. "They were the much better basketball team," James said
In Game 5 of the NBA Finals, the Spurs were down by as much as 16 in the first half. Manu Ginobili's 2nd quarter slam was part of a 33-13 run to retake the lead. Manu's poster dunk on Chris Bosh sent the San Antonio crowd into a stra...
NBA Finals: San Antonio Spurs rout Miami Heat for 2-1 series lead San Jose Mercury News MIAMI -- Maybe in a video game. Possibly in the pregame layup line. But shoot this way in the NBA Finals, against the two-time defending champions? "It's not something you can plan for," San Antonio guard Manu Ginobili said. "There was no magic plays.
The San Antonio Spurs dynasty was forged on the prowess of the Big ThreeTim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. Together, they led the post-Admiral Spurs to three titles, 2003, ’05 and ’07. In recent years however, the Big Three have needed some help closing out the season with a ring. Enter Kaw…
With the A/C out and LeBron James cramping, San Antonio surges late for a Game 1 win. When dealing with the Heat and the heat, and with James forced out with cramps, the Spurs took full advantage. Tim Duncan had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs beat the Miami Heat 110-95 in Game 1 of the NBA Finals inside a sweltering and steamy AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas. With an air-conditioning failure making it feel like basketball in a sauna and causing James to battle cramps that knocked him out of the game's decisive stretch, the Spurs pulled away to win the opener of the first Finals rematch since 1998. Manu Ginobili had 16 points and 11 assists, and Tony Parker added 19 points and eight assists for the Spurs, who shot 59 percent and improved to 6-for-6 in NBA Finals Game 1s. James finished with 25 points but played only 33 minutes, and Miami was outscored 36-17 in the fourth quarter. Dwyane Wade scored 19 points and Chris Bosh had 18 for the Heat, who wilted in temperatures that soared ...
Oklahoma City (AP) -- When asked about the oldie-but-goodie San Antonio Spurs, Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant inquired about Tony Parker's age. "Thirty-two," a reporter answered. "He is old," Durant quipped, drawing laughter. "He doesn't play like he's 32 years old." Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili are even older. Duncan just turned 38 and Ginobili is approaching 37. The trio won its first NBA title together in 2003 and fought back Father Time to reach the NBA Finals last year. They will play in their seventh Western Conference Finals together, starting with Game 1 Monday night in San Antonio. Durant, the league's MVP, said there's more to San Antonio's success than some mythical fountain of youth. It starts with the genius of Gregg Popovich, the league's Coach of the Year. "Their system, they plug guys in and out," Durant said. "They always stick to their same system. They get guys who fit. And they've got a great coach who gets those guys prepared." Even with an aging core and numerous injuries throughout th ...
The San Antonio proved last night, that its take great effort, determination, teamwork and motivation to close out series despite missing there best player on the court. Tony Parker left in the 2nd quarter of Game 5 because of a hamstring injury, so he was unable to return, leaving the Spurs without there best offensive threat on the court. The San Antonio Spurs don't ever have to prove anything to anybody, we know that they are the most consistence team in the league. They get contributions from basically every player on the team, so it was no surprise to see it took a complete and total team effort for the Spurs to close out the Portland Trail Blazers in 5 games. The Spurs offensive balance with there bench completely overwhelmed the Blazers, as the Spurs bench outscored Portland's 220-73 in the 5 games these two teams played. San Antonio had too much firepower for the Blazers to deal with, to many 3-point threats that it became ultimately too much for them to handle. With Tony Parker leaving the game i ...
Daily Dime » Research Notes After shooting 40.4% on jump shots against the Rockets in the first round, the Trail Blazers had far less success in the West semifinals against the Spurs. The Blazers made 12-of-39 jump shots Wednesday and finished the series shooting 34.9%. Damian Lillard, the Blazers' hero against the Rockets, was less effective against the Spurs. He hit 1-of-13 contested 3-pointers against San Antonio after making 15-of-34 in the previous series against Houston. The Spurs scored 36 points in transition Wednesday, the most they've scored in a game this postseason. Kawhi Leonard and Patty Mills paced the Spurs' offense, scoring 19 transition points (8-of-10). Kawhi Leonard was the Spurs' best defender Wednesday forcing six turnovers and limiting the Blazers to four points when he was the primary defender. Leonard held the Blazers to 6-of-20 shooting for the series (30%). In the previous series against Dallas, Leonard was less effective allowing opponents to score 11.9 points per game. The Sp ...
Griffin had 21 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists on his 25th birthday as the Los Angeles Clippers held off the Cleveland Cavaliers 102-80 Sunday for their 11th consecutive victory. Chris Paul had 15 assists and scored 11 of his 16 points in the final 6:04 for the Clippers, who haven’t lost since Feb. 21. Los Angeles matched the longest winning streak in the NBA this season, equalling 11-game runs in November by Portland and San Antonio.“This stretch of games that we’ve played and we’ve been successful, has been a huge team effort,” Griffin said. “With our team, I don’t think it’s one guy that’s making us go. I genuinely believe it’s been a total team effort.” The San Antonio Spurs kept their own win streak alive, topping the Utah Jazz 122-104 for their 10th straight victory.Argentine star Manu Ginobili scored 21 points, Tony Parker had 18 points and Tim Duncan 16 for the Spurs (50-16), who became the first NBA team to 50 wins this season.

"Mills' 29 Helps Cut Down Blazers 111-109" Patty Mills came off the bench to score 29 points (in 29mins). Mills helped fill the void with a 24-point second half. The fourth-year guard from Australia came off the bench to hit 13 of 26 shots against the Blazers. Mills has been on a hot streak since the All-Star break concluded, scoring 25 and 29 points in the Spurs' first two games back. "If it wasn't for him the last couple nights, we would have really struggled," San Antonio forward Danny Green said. "He's doing what Tony usually does, in taking over in that fourth quarter." LEAD: Patty Mills scored 29 points in exactly 29 minutes off the bench to lead the Spurs to a 111-109 victory Wednesday night at the Moda Center. QUOTABLE: "Patty was spectacular again. He's a tough cover. He's a great competitor and he has helped us like that all year long." -- San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich, on Mills, who has averaged 21 points over the last seven games. GOOD MOVE: Popovich started Mills and Manu Ginobili together ...
Even though the Spurs and Timberwolves didn't get a chance to put on a show in Mexico last week, they were able to give us a great one, last night in San Antonio. It was completely unexpected that it would be a high scoring affair between San Antonio and Minnesota. Kevin Love continues to prove why he is one of the best players in the NBA right now, scoring 19 of his season-high 42 points and burying 5 of his 8 made 3-pointers in the 3rd quarter, but despite Love's explosion, it was the veteran star power for San Antonio, with SG Manu Ginobili and PG Tony Parker, taking over the 4th and final quarter. Ginobili scored 16 of his 20 points and dish out 4 of his 9 assists in the final period, helping bring the Spurs back from a nine-point deficit entering the 4th quarter, after Love's hot shooting display. It wasn't just Ginobili who step up big time in the 4th quarter, as superstar Tony Parker scored 12 of his 29 points, helping the Spurs get the 117-110 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves. This great wi ...
SAN ANTONIO -- Having no answer for Kevin Love for three-and-a-half quarters, the San Antonio Spurs made Minnesota solve their Big 3. The Timberwolves failed. Tony Parker had 29 points to offset Love's season-high 42 points and San Antonio rallied for a 117-110 victory over Minnesota on Friday night. Manu Ginobili had 20 points and nine assists, fueling a 37-21 fourth quarter that helped the Spurs avoid their second home loss this season. Tim Duncan added 12 points and 14 rebounds. Duncan, Parker and Ginobili have won three NBA titles together and are the active leaders for wins as a trio. That experience paid off against the Timberwolves, who have not made the playoffs since 2005. "It's got to show up somewhere," Duncan said of the trio's experience. "If you want to call it that, it is what it is. We know what's going on out there, especially when it gets down to crunch time and things really count. We've made plays long enough that we know where each other is going to be." Ginobili and Parker combined t ...
SAN ANTONIO -- A big effort from the bench sent San Antonio to its 11th straight victory. Manu Ginobili had 16 points to lead seven players in double figures, and the Spurs beat the New Orleans Pelicans 112-93 on Monday night to remain undefeated at home. "The second team did a good job coming in and playing smart, aggressive basketball," coach Gregg Popovich said. "They didn't take anything for granted." San Antonio, which led by as many as 32 points, never trailed after Al-Farouq Aminu's layup put New Orleans up 4-2 with 10:54 left in the first quarter. The Spurs had 30 assists on their 44 field goals, continually making at least two passes on each possession compared to isolation plays and one-pass-and-shoot attempts by the Pelicans. New Orleans had 15 turnovers and finished with 21 assists, which was almost matched by San Antonio's reserves (16). "We've just got to play harder," Pelicans big man Anthony Davis said. "They just came out and put it on us. It's tough. We didn't play with (any) effort. No ...
(SportsNetwork.com) - The surging San Antonio Spurs are back in the Alamo City and will put their nine-game winning streak on the line Saturday versus the Cleveland Cavaliers at the AT&T Center. The Spurs made it nine straight wins with Friday's 102-86 drubbing of the Memphis Grizzlies at FedExForum. Tony Parker scored 20 points, Tiago Splitter added 17 and Manu Ginobili netted 15 points for San Antonio, which shot 53.2 percent. Parker scored 11 points in the fourth quarter. San Antonio survived a furious rally by the Grizzlies for its fifth straight win on the road. "They made a run like we expected them to. This is the NBA. That's how it works," said Spurs power forward Tim Duncan. "We kept our composure and made some plays at the right time." Duncan ended with eight points and six assists, while Kawhi Leonard had 12 points and nine rebounds for the Spurs. The Spurs are 11-1, tying the team record for their best start through 12 games. They were 11-1 in 2010-11. The Spurs will also host New Orleans on t ...
Los Angeles (AP) -- GO SPURS GO ! Although the Spurs and the Lakers hadn't played a game without Tim Duncan or Kobe Bryant on the court in 17 years, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili haven't gone anywhere. And even without Duncan, San Antonio is still doing the same boring stuff with the same stellar results. Parker had 24 points and six assists, Kawhi Leonard added 15 points and 11 rebounds, and the Spurs survived without Duncan for a 91-85 victory over Los Angeles on Friday night. Duncan sat out after bruising his chest in Wednesday's season-opening victory over Memphis, but Spurs coach Gregg Popovich promised his defending Western Conference champions would do the ''same boring stuff'' even without their franchise cornerstone since 1997. That's exactly what the Spurs did, recovering from an early 15-point deficit and executing well in the final minutes while the new-look Lakers faltered against the club that swept them out of the first round of last spring's playoffs. ''We had a rough start, but in the sec ...

To all my Dallas Mavericks fans friends - Manu Ginobili is staying in San Antonio, as well he should. Hope you guys can get Dwight Howard but Manu is a Spur for Life!
San Antonio Spurs How about joining a championship-level organization for the first time? The Spurs went just one game short of taking the 2013 NBA title from the Heat and one can wonder if Smith could have been the difference between glory and agony. Manu Ginobili's contract is expiring and the Spurs can compel the Argentine great to take a pay cut so they can strengthen their roster. If there is a franchise, too, that can inspire Smith to not go after a max deal, it has to be San Antonio. Adding Smith will move Duncan to the center spot while adding a ton of versatility to the Spurs' first five. We all know what J-Smoove can do and maybe he will finally realize his full potential under the best coach in the league today: Gregg Popovich.
7-David West David West showed his importance to the Indiana Pacers throughout the playoffs, but his age, 32, could be a hindrance to the Pacers signing him to a long-term deal. However, his massive size would be virtually irreplaceable and the Pacers would not want to lose his leadership. 8- Al Jefferson Al Jefferson is another Utah Jazz big man who seems to be on his way out due to the emergence of Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter. Jefferson is incredibly talented on offense, but his abysmal defense and limited athleticism are worries for many teams. 9-Manu Ginobili There's no reason to believe Manu Ginobili is going to leave San Antonio. He's spent his entire career with the team and he seems to get along well enough with head coach Gregg Popovich. However, if Ginobili ever did hit the open market, the likely Hall-of-Famer would be coveted by every team in the league.
LeBron?? Bully!!! Wade?? Bully!!! Battier?? Bully!!! Birdman?? Bully!!! Chalmers?? Bully!!! Ray Allen will take your cookies!! Manu Ginobili?? He will just give his cookies to you. Justin Michael...this is for you. San Antonio has a Popivich, Miami pops that *** They have a Popovich, MIA pops champagne!! They have a Popovich, Miami pops the Molly's!!!
10 reasons San Antonio is still a title contender. 10: Gregg Popovich is still the coach. He picks players that want to help the team, not average 20 a game. 9: Tony Parker isn't going anywhere. Anytime you have a top 5 player on your team, you're gonna be competitive 8: Manu Ginobili is still effective. He still plays good defense, passes, scores, and comes up big. 7: Kawhi Leonard. We saw before our eyes Kawhi Leonard becoming a future player and top SF in this league. Leonard could very well average 16 points, 4 assists, 8 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 block next season. 6: Danny Green has become more consistent. The last couple games he was under the weather, but aside from those 2 games he was Mr. Consistency 5: Defense. The Spurs are still a great defensive team, and they can still shut down any team. 4: Chemistry. The Spurs have great chemistry from playing well for so many years, and the core group is still there 3: 3's. San Antonio is still one of the best 3 point shooting teams in this league 2: Foundat ...
Let me just say that I've been a fan of Miami Heat since Wade won the ring with Shaq, what was that '06? They have always been my second favorite team and they always will be! I'm not riding, not hopping on the band wagon, I'm a true fan! Funny how everybody became such huge San Antonio fans overnight though... When two teams play that I'm not a fan of I don't care who wins or loses. Celtic pride first, but then it's def Miami. S/O to Kawhi Leonard though, homeboy played one *** of a series! But thanks to Manu Ginobili for those costly turnovers!!! ~KC~
Don't blame the refs, San Antonio fan and NBA Conspiracy Theorists, for Tony Parker shooting 6-23, Manu Ginobili having 8 turn-overs and Popp making 2 questionable decisions regarding sitting Duncan. Admit it, you hate LeBron. That is why you are blaming the refs. Also, Bosh's block was clean; all ball.
From the Jim Rome show. He said it all... Let me start by acknowledging the obvious: Game 6 was an instant classic. An unbelievable game. LeBron James said it was “by far the best game I’ve ever been a part of.”Now… make no mistake, Miami was dead in the water. They were dun. D-u-n, done. The yellow tape was out, security personnel were assuming their position and Heat fans were streaming out of the building. Down 5 with 28 seconds to play, that dynasty was over. Legacies were wrecked, and the Big Three were Dead. San Antonio had shocked Miami on their home floor and had just joined the sport’s elite with 5 World Championships. Then, they choked. Period they choked. Up 13 late in the third, 10 to start the fourth and five with 28 seconds to go to win a world title and they went right into the tank. Had a boot on Miami’s throat and couldn’t finish. And I don’t want to hear how the game was rigged and that the officials ripped it from them. Save your nonsense about Manu Ginobili ...

Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan, you both had a great play today... You made HEAT feel how veterans play.. You have my support for the Game 7! GO!go!go! San Antonio!
Breaking News: The finals championship file has been leaked! The Miami Heat will have the title handed to them on Thursday night, June 20th, 2013. Everyone's performance was on point last night! Great job on Tuesday, especially Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. Here's a recap of his outstanding performance: San Antonio had a 10-point lead with 12 minutes left, with 28 seconds remaining he benched Tim Duncan! (chi chi cha cha He removed Parker twice, but the suspense came when he did it for the entire final 79 seconds of the extra session. With a title on the line and fifth championship ring at his fingertips, the producers felt it was necessary to go to Game 7 due to higher ratings and expensive advertisements! Oh yes, I didn't forget you, Manu Ginobili. Giving away eight of San Antonio's 13 turnovers was classic! :)
Three questions, answered Can Chris Bosh do anything?: Bosh scored 12 efficient points and grabbed 10 rebounds. He also added four assists and did more than step in from his failed three-point shooting from prior games. Bosh was hustling to chase down offensive boards, recovering quickly on pick-and-roll defense to get into passing lanes and record three steals. Can the Heat force turnovers?: By the first quarter, San Antonio had already recorded four turnovers to equal its Game 1 total. The Spurs finished with 17 for the game, leading to 19 points. On the flip side, Miami recorded just five turnovers for two points in return. Can Miami stop Tony Parker?: Parker didn't have the best of games in going 5-for-14 for 14 points, five assists and five turnovers, but he didn't get much help. Tim Duncan struggled mightily and Manu Ginobili could hardly hang on to the ball. The Spurs bench got outplayed until garbage time as Ginobili put in just five points and had three turnovers.
Ginobili rues poor Spurs showing 10 June 2013 09:01 Manu Ginobili feels the San Antonio Spurs missed an opportunity in their 19- point loss to the Miami Heat. The Heat overcame San Antonio 103-84 in Miami on Sunday to level the NBA finals series at 1-1, after the visitors had taken out Game One in Florida. Although the Spurs will head back to Texas with a win, something Ginobili would have taken before the trip to Florida, the 35- year-old Argentine admitted he felt underwhelmed following the defeat in Game Two. "If you had asked me before heading to Miami I would have said okay, I'll take it," Ginobili said. "Winning one and losing the other by 20, not a big deal, I'll take it. "But once you win the first one, you forget about that. "Odds are over and you face a new game as if it's a Game Seven and you want to win it too...we were expecting to do better, that's the frustrating part." Ginobili bemoaned San Antonio's effort in the second half as Miami outscored the visitors 53-39 after the main break. "In ...
The NBA Finals. Just being here can be memorable -- and miserable. And surprise, it's those supposedly stoic Spurs who are having more fun, while the South Beach bunch is a little grumpy and grouchy. The Miami Heat may be on top of the basketball world, but there's no joy unless they stay there. "Playoffs ain't fun, man. I'm sorry to bust anyone on the outside's bubble," Dwyane Wade said. "As a player in the playoffs, you have no joy until it's over and you won. If you don't win, you have no joy for a while." Down 1-0 after a record regular season that goes for naught without another title, the Heat can turn their moods around with a victory over San Antonio on Sunday night in Game 2. Back in the finals for a third straight year, the Heat have lost some of the ability to enjoy the ride. With exorbitant expectations, all that matters is the destination. But San Antonio, absent from this stage for six years, is soaking up what could be its last shot for Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. After all, ...
San Antonio claims Game One of the NBA finals. Come on guys nut up and win the other three. This may be Tim Duncan's swan song so we should go out with a big bang. Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili are key pieces of the spurs and they need to step up big if we are going to dethrone Miami. Come on guys we believe
Kawhi Leonard hounds LeBron James in San Antonio's Game 1 win over Miami: Manu Ginobili said before...
GAME 1  Heat 112, Spurs 105 Miami opened the 2013 Finals by showing why they are the defending NBA champions. LeBron James (30 points, 11 assists, 6 rebounds) continued his playoff excellence. Tim Duncan (22 points, 12 rebounds) led the way for San Antonio but with Tony Parker (11 points, 7 assists) and Manu Ginobili struggling for most of the night, the Heat’s supporting cast and swarming defense solidified Miami's Game 1 victory. The Heat showed consistency offensively, scoring 28 in each quarter of the game, and took advantage of their home-court.     GAME 2  Heat 97, Spurs 78 The Heat’s defense shined once again in Game 2 as they held the Spurs to 32% shooting from the field. Despite a huge night from Duncan (20 points, 14 rebounds) and Parker (22 points, 5 assists), Miami’s defense gave the rest of San Antonio’s offense major issues. James (20 points, 13 assists) led his team with a balanced scoring effort including hot shooting from Ray Allen (22 points) off the bench. San Antonio's lack ...
OK sports fans, the NBA tournament is about to start. The finals are her and Miami is going to undoubtedly repeat-All of my older friends have been on the San Antonio band wagon since the start of the season and to my surprise the over the hill gang has been unstoppable. But it all ends now- Miami has been on cruise control. Indiana never stood a chance of winning- Everyone questions Wade's ability but he is one of the rare players that can turn there game off an on. He rises to the occasion when he must. Remember the Shaq years when Wade really on the championship for Miami?? Must I talk about Labron? He is a beast- What about Birdman? Awesome- OK Tony Parker is an all time guard and the left handed demon Manu Ginobili is due for a big series so this may tern out to be a contest but Miami will wind up on top. Let's talk three-peat
Heat, not Spurs, are the Finals’ old team We mentioned this before, but the Heat are older than the Spurs. Using Basketball-Reference.com’s season age for each player and weighting for minutes played, the Heat’s average age is 30.0 during the playoffs. That makes them the NBA’s oldest postseason team this year. The Spurs check in with an average age of 28.7 during the playoffs, which ranks as sixth-oldest. Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and San Antonio’s long-held stability give the perception that San Antonio is old, but here are the complete objective rankings: 1. Heat, 30.02. Celtics, 29.73. Knicks, 29.64. Lakers, 29.25. Clippers, 29.16. Spurs, 28.77. Nets, 28.58. Grizzlies, 27.99. Bulls, 27.510. Hawks, 27.311. Thunder, 26.912. Nuggets, 26.413. Bucks, 26.114. Pacers, 25.615. Rockets, 25.416. Warriors, 24.6
FIVE QUICK QUESTIONS (AND ANSWERS) 1. Can the Spurs' precision ball movement outsmart the Heat's pressure defense? When Miami bears down defensively, and we haven't seen it all that much during this postseason, there is nothing more beautiful to watch -- or more lethal for opponents. The Game 7 win against Indiana is an example. Big, athletic and explosive, the Heat create turnovers and turn them into highlight reel-type dunks better than anybody. But the Spurs are a different animal than any team Miami has faced. Intelligent, quick, accurate and poised, San Antonio whips the ball around, passes up a good shot for a better one. When Memphis took away the Spurs' vaunted 3-point shot, Tony Parker and company used backdoor cuts to win. Miami couldn't contain Dallas' passing offense in a 2011 Finals loss, and they'll be hard-pressed to slow the Spurs. 2. Do the Spurs need to get more from Manu Ginobili or do the Heat need more from Dwyane Wade? Both stars have not had stellar postseasons. Wade has played thro ...
San Antonio picked up a 104-93 overtime victory over Memphis as 4.5-point road underdogs in Game 3 last Saturday, while the OVER has cashed in the first three games of this series. The Spurs overcame an early 18-point deficit, with their veteran trio of Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker combining to score 69 points. Over seems to have paid out recent so I'm going again. ( lot ppl fancy grizzlies but spurs at 5/4 is good odds) Over 182
When you're in a tough situation, all you have to do is keep your poise, stay focused, and continue to grind it out. That's exactly what the Spurs did tonight. San Antonio was down by 18 in the first quarter, turning the ball over 8 times and shooting just 21% from the field. Gregg Popovich took out the starters, swapped in the bench, and those guys gave them much-needed energy to get back into the swing of things. When Tony Parker and Tim Duncan came back in, they got their mojo back and continued to chip away slowly. Parker would lead the way scoring-wise with 26 points, but it was Tim Duncan that saved the day yet again. After the Spurs forced overtime for the second consecutive game, Tim Duncan would score 7 points to stab Memphis in the heart, and would finish with a double-double (24 points, 10 rebounds, and 5 big assists). Manu Ginobili gave his team that third option to help his troops get over the hump, as he had an excellent all-around game (19 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists). The Spurs are 1 win ...
The Spurs take Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals over the Grizzlies 104-93 in Overtime. Tony Parker led San Antonio with 26 points, Tim Duncan added 24 points and 10 rebounds, and Manu Ginobili had 19 points. Game 4 is Monday, you can catch it on the Horn with pregame beginning at 7:30, tip off at 8.
For the eighth time in their Spurs careers, Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan will coach and play in a Western Conference Finals after a 94-82 win over Golden State to win their series, 4-2. Duncan had a team high of 19 points, even though he sat for the final three plus minutes of the 4th Quarter. Tony Parker nailed two gigantic three pointers to keep San Antonio in front. Parker was 3 for 16 shooting and Manu Ginobili shot 1 for 6 and scored only 5 points. The Spurs had five players score in double figures, as they hit seven three pointers to Golden State's four and made 21 of 25 free throws. Steph Curry had 22 points on 10 of 25 shooting and super sub Jarrett Jack scored 15 points. Golden State was not able to make it count with their passing as the Spurs had a 27-18 advantage in assists. The darlings of the playoffs did not have a productive shooting night from Curry's Splash Brother, Klay Thompson, who shot 4 for 12. The Western Conference Finals start Sunday afternoon as the Memphis Grizzlies open up on ...
All-Overpaid 2nd Team josiah israel albelda Charlotte's Ben Gordon, San Antonio's Manu Ginobili, Los Angeles Clippers' Lamar Odom, Los Angeles Lakers' Pau Gasol and Charlotte's DeSagana Diop. (AP) G Ben Gordon, Charlotte Bobcats Salary: $12,400,000 Stats: 71 games, 11.6 points, 1.8 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 41.0% FG shooting Wonder why Charlotte is the worst team in the NBA? Just look at this list, where they have two entries and you get why. Gordon was highly touted coming out of college and in his first few years, he did not disappoint. However, once Gordon signed a five-year deal worth $55-million with Detroit in 2009, things started to turn around (in a bad way) for the former UConn standout. Gordon saw his numbers go down, down and down. And this year, he has scored the least points, shot the worst field goal percentage, hauled down the least rebounds, dished out the least assists and stole the ball the least on a year he earned his career's biggest paycheck. Just wow. G Manu Ginobili, San Antonio Spurs ...
What a blowout by the San Antonio Spurs kill the Detroit Pistons with 114 to 75. Manu Ginobili had a big game coming off the beach with 17 points 3 stales 3 ast and 2 rebounds. Tim Duncan also had a good game with 16 points 6 ast and 11 rebounds. Danny Green with a good game with 16 points 1 stale and 4 rebounds. Spurs win without Tony Parker too dam.
Josh Smith rumors wont go away... "San Antonio could emerge as a potential landing spot for Smith, according to an Eastern Conference GM. With Smith’s expiring contract, it is believed the Spurs wouldn’t have to surrender much in return — and that coach Gregg Popovich and stars Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili would be able to keep the sometimes-difficult Smith in line." -Cole Credits to projectspurs.com
Basketball Spurs top Bulls without injured trio The San Antonio Spurs protected their NBA-best record with an impressive 103-89 victory over the Chicago Bulls despite missing three top players through injury. Tony Parker (knee), Tim Duncan (knee) and Manu Ginobili (hamstring) were all scratched from the game but the Spurs leaned on a career-best 26 points from Kawhi Leonard and 18 from Danny Green to tame the Bulls. San Antonio clung to a slim 76-75 edge in the fourth before running off a 19-5 spurt to close the door on Chicago. The Spurs (41-12) had lately been relying on the brilliant play of All Star Parker who covered for his ailing team-mates and even as he too joined the injured group with a swollen knee, San Antonio claimed the win to stay atop the NBA. Nate Robinson scored 20 points to pace the Bulls while Joakim Noah added seven and 15 rebounds for the home team which faded down the stretch. Chicago (30-21) has now lost three of four.
Bulls play host to the San Antonio Spurs tonight at the United Center. Curious to see who will play tonight for both teams. Kirk Hinrich is in question for the Bulls, while Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili are the question marks for the Spurs. I could try to go into an analysis, but it's too complicated and dependent on who does and doesn't play. Either way, GO BULLS! Give the Spurs loss on the season.
LAST NIGHT'S NBA GAME UPDATE: The San Antonio Spurs(32-11) were playing without PF Tim Duncan, SG Manu Ginobili, so where would they find the offense to win the against the Hawks who found out earlier in the day they loss PG Lou Williams for the season to injury. The Spurs defense once again made a huge difference in the victory causing 15 turnovers, getting 8 steals that helped San Antonio get 25 points off Hawks turnovers. The Spurs got great contributes from unlikely source who nobody excepted would have such an impacted in decided what the outcome of the ball game would be. PF/C Matt Bonner who doesn't get too much playing at all, knew he needed to have a great performance if wanted to have another opportunities of playing again. Matt Bonner did not disappoint at all for San Antonio scoring 17 points, 3-3 from 3-point land and 7-8 from the field and PF/C DeJuan Blair give them a little spark as well scored 7 points with 3-7 shooting, 7 boards and 2 steals off the bench for both players. PF/C Tiago Spl ...
Who is your top 10 Power Rankings here's mine with a side note 1. LA Clippers - Even without their best play maker they find ways to win. 2. Oklahoma City Thunder - It appears with Kevin Martin going cold, Kevin Durant has picked up the scoring slack averaging 34 ppg in the Thunders last 5 3. San Antonio - Yet again the Spurs fine themselves as a top 3 team in NBA, Manu Ginobili has gotten injured, and they just plug someone right in his shoes as if he was never hurt. 4. Miami - Miami has been a little inconsistent as of late, but they aint got no worries until the playoffs. 5. Memphis - Its hard to believe Memphis has been struggling finding ways to score with the best starting 5 in the NBA, after a fast start to the season. 6. Knicks - Many people will disagree with the Knicks being this low but they live and die by the 3, however once Raymond Felton comes back he will ultimately be a huge part to their success. 7. Golden State - One of the biggest surprises to the season, Marc Jackson has them playing ...

New York Knicks Guards spark perfect rally for statement win! :) SAN ANTONIO — Mike Woodson knows nobody can scoff at the Knicks’ unbeaten start now, not after last night’s comeback from 12 points down in the final seven minutes to stun the powerhouse Spurs, 104-100, at AT&T Center. “It shows me that this team is for real,’’ said Woodson, who had never won in San Antonio as a head coach. “We beat a great team tonight.’’ It was the Knicks’ first victory in San Antonio since 2003 as they moved to 6-0 for just the second time in team history and showed they have all the qualities of a championship contender. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, who has four titles, got the message. NBAE/Getty Images JOY OF SIX: Jason Kidd, who hit three 3-pointers during the fourth-quarter comeback, slices between Manu Ginobili (left) and Tim Duncan during the Knicks’ 104-100 win over the Spurs in San Antonio last night to improve to 6-0. “There’s a reason why they were 5-0,’’ Popovich said. “They lead ...
Spurs ranked on sbnation: "I overlooked San Antonio in my preseason rankings, and here we are. Most of the league's best teams have made changes, and they're all scrambling to adapt on the fly. Those cheeky Spurs hardly did anything (besides apparently pump Tim Duncan full of steroids and caffeine and possibly mongoose blood. What the *** has gotten into that guy? How is this allowed?) and they're just calmly going about their business destroying folks. And now Manu Ginobili is back? The Spurs are the worst, man."
Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, Stephen Jackson and Gary Neal all scored in double-figures for San Antonio.
I wonder what would happen to San Antonio after the Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili Era
Tony Parker scored 17 points and fed a lob pass over San Antonio teammate Manu Ginobili for a key basket down the stretch as France stunned Argentina 71-64 on Tuesday in an Olympic preliminary men's game featuring 10 NBA players.
It is the end of an era in San Antonio. The Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili & Gregg Popovich led Spurs are the greatest dynasty since the Michael Jordan's Bulls.
San Antonio is halfway to turning the Western Conference Finals into a runaway. Tony Parker scored 34 points, Manu Ginobili added 20, and the Spurs stayed perfect in the playoffs with a 120-111 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 2 on Tuesday night.
San Antonio-Miami is the culture-war showdown that could build on the momentum of last year’s terrific NBA Finals. San Antonio-Miami would represent team vs. stars, diligence and patience vs. instant gratification, humility vs. hype, international basketball culture vs. American basketball culture. Tim Duncan (Virgin Islands), Tony Parker (France) and Manu Ginobili (Argentina), the San Antonio-drafted foundation of the Spurs team, did not grow up a part of traditional American basketball culture. Duncan grew up dreaming of being an Olympic swimmer. He stayed all four years at Wake Forest. Parker and Ginobili grew up playing international basketball. NBA PLAYOFFS Stay up to date with all the matchups at Playoff Central. San Antonio’s “Big Three” is quite a contrast to Miami’s. James, an Akron, Ohio, native, never attended college and orchestrated his move to Miami after seven seasons with the Cavaliers. Bosh, a Dallas native, left Georgia Tech after one season and bolted to Miami after seven seas ...

Spurs Storm Past Thunder in Game 1 San Antonio got balanced offense, a big game from Manu Ginobili & a huge fourth quarter to knock off Oklahoma City in the Western Conference Finals opener.
After a frenetic three quarters where the Oklahoma City Thunder repeatedly got out in transition, the San Antonio Spurs cut down on their turnovers to fuel a fourth-quarter comeback and win Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals 101-98. With the game played almost exclusively in the half-court, San Antonio's half-court execution was the difference as they outscored Oklahoma City 39-27 in the fourth. Manu Ginobili keyed the Spurs offense, with 26 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists on 9-14 shooting. On the other end of the floor, the Thunder's offense stagnated as their stars were forced to take a series of contested pull-up jumpers. Oklahoma City went small to ensure this wouldn't happen, but Scott Brooks' decision to leave Kendrick Perkins in the game allowed the Spurs to play 5-on-4 defensively anyway. In Game 2, Brooks may have to go with one of his more skilled offensive big men (Nick Collison or Serge Ibaka) at the expense of Perkins' post defense on Tim Duncan, who rarely tested the Thunder big man on ...
Playoff Preview: San Antonio Spurs vs. Oklahoma City Thunder Kurt Helin May 25, 2012, 2:54 AM EDT 8 Comments Getty Images SEASON RECORDS San Antonio 50-16 (1 seed) Oklahoma City 47-19 (2 seed) SEASON SERIES San Antonio took the season series 2-1, however Manu Ginobili missed all of them (which might worry Thunder fans), the games were in March and earlier, bottom line these teams are different now. OFFENSE/DEFENSE RANKINGS (points per 100 possession) San Antonio: offense 108.5 (1st in NBA); defense 100.6 (11th) Oklahoma City: offense 107.1 (2nd); defense 100 (9th) THREE KEY SPURS: Tony Parker: He outdueled Chris Paul, so as his reward he gets Russell Westbrook. In one key regular season meeting between these teams Gregg Popovich asked Parker to attack Westbrook on offense, to wear him down and make him work at both ends, he did taking 29 shots and scoring 42 points. It worked. Expect a lot of that this series. On the other end, Parker is going to have to defend the pick-and-roll as well as he did last ser ...
