Memphis Grizzlies Beat San Antonio Spurs 117-116 In Triple Overtime Classic

Tim Duncan, Marc Gasol

The Memphis Grizzlies led the short-handed San Antonio Spurs by 23 points in the second quarter and 17 points in the third. But Gregg Popovich’s team doesn’t feel sorry for itself, and certainly doesn’t play the scoreboard. Thank god – we’d have been robbed of an all-time classic if it did. In a game containing multiple game-tying buzzer-beaters and much more clutch shot-making, the Grizzlies beat the Spurs 117-116 after three wildly entertaining overtimes. Read More »

If you’re not familiar, H-E-B is a privately owned grocery chain based in San Antonio, Texas. The Spurs, naturally, are a perfect for their ad campaigns, and a new set recently debuted featuring Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard and Patty Mills. In a couple of them, Kawhi even cracks a smile (!!), and we get to see more of Duncan’s deadpan delivery. Read More »

Manu Ginobili

There aren’t many players like the Argentinian Manu Ginobili. His zig-zagging forays to the rim earlier in his career even forced coach Gregg Popovich to concede the one-time mop-headed Ginobili had to cut loose on the court rather than adhere to San Antonio’s famously structured attack. Ginobili’s on-ball wizardry continued during a sequence in last night’s 93-80 win over the Lakers. Read More »

(Kyle Terada/USA TODAY Sports)

Tonight is the San Antonio Spurs’ first nationally televised back-to-back of the 2014-2015 season, and the game happens to be against one of the league’s two remaining undefeated teams. Frankly, it would be a surprise if Gregg Popovich didn’t take advantage of this golden opportunity to rest his aging stars while indirectly trolling the league in the process. And that’s exactly what he’s done, as the reigning champs announced earlier today that Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili will sit-out Thursday’s marquee matchup at the Houston Rockets. Read More »

Spurs Stay Humble, Driven As Championship Rings, Regular Season Await

Gregg Popovich

In just a few hours, the 2014-2015 NBA season launches with the San Antonio Spurs hosting the cross-state rival Dallas Mavericks.

Manu Ginobili Says He’s Pain-Free But “Way Behind Basketball-Wise”

Manu Ginobili

No team’s system is more effective or relentless than the San Antonio Spurs’. In the past two seasons alone, Gregg Popovich and company have turned cast-offs Danny Green, Boris Diaw, and Patty Mills into extremely valuable, role-playing cogs that helped them to two consecutive Finals appearances and the 2014 NBA championship. More than any other organization in the league, the Spurs consistently push their players to the peak of their ability. But make no mistake – San Antonio needs its stars to play like stars to be its best. To that end, the Spurs will be pleased to know that 37 year-old Manu Ginobili says he’s fully healthy for the first time in years. But the Argentinian legend also warns that he’s “way behind” in terms of on-court comfort. Read More »
