Spurs picture coming into focus or is it? posted by Spurs Fan

The San Antonio Spurs have always been more than the sum of their parts, but some parts seem to be proving more essential than others.

Reigning Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard's 9.75-inch-long hands are one of those parts.

Unfortunately, he tore a ligament in his right paw during a Dec. 9 loss to the Utah Jazz, dealing the franchise a significant blow amid what's almost certainly its most difficult month of competition.

In turn, San Antonio has lost six of its last eight games without Leonard and six of its last seven overall. 

At the moment, there's no timetable for the fourth-year pro's return. Nor has there been any news that could be construed as particularly good.

Leonard is averaging 15.2 points, 7.6 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 2.0 steals in 32.2 minutes per contest—all on pace to be career highs. He's also looking for his offense more assertively, attempting 12.3 field goals and 4.1 free throws per game.

Having played 29.1 minutes and taken 9.8 shots per contest a season ago, the additional playing time and touches have had a lot to do with that evolution.

Leonard is the player who seems to tip the scale in making this Spurs squad the best in the organization's history. Even with past players such as Mario Elie, Sean Elliott, Robert Horry and Stephen Jackson, the Spurs have never had a player like Leonard on any of their championship rosters. Leonard turned the Big Three into a Fab Four. It makes them the one Spurs squad that could beat the other championship squads in franchise history if they were to mythically play each other in the Finals. Kawhi

Damian Lillard leads wild Blazers comeback in Oklahoma City 115-111 in OT posted by Blazers Fan

Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers came out on top in a wild point guard match-up against Russell Westbrook 115-111 in overtime in Oklahoma City.

The Blazers comeback would not have been were it not for a boneheaded series of plays from Westbrook. Westbrook was the biggest reason the Thunder were winning but a useless personal foul in the backcourt coupled with a technical allowed the Blazers to cut the lead to seven with no time coming off the clock.

Then Lillard came down and hit a deep three off a screen. In the blink of an eye the lead went from 10 to four.

Aldridge and Lillard combined for 32 of Portland’s final 42 points.

Another key to Portland’s success late was head coach Terry Stotts decided to match the Thunder’s 3-guard line-up with Steve Blake and bring in more athleticism in Dorell Wright. Wright didn’t play since his crucial role in Friday’s 3OT win against the Spurs.

Wright didn’t have the 3-point barrage he had against San Antonio but grabbed some crucial rebounds and had a nice tip in in overtime to give the Blazers breathing room.

The Blazers capped off an incredibly successful trip with wins against the Spurs, Pelicans and Thunder without Robin Lopez and getting two of those without Nicolas Batum. The Blazers are nearing the end of a grueling December which had 10 of 16 games on the road.

The Blazers are succeeding when schedules and injury continue seem to say they shouldn’t.

And with 7 of the next 10 days off, the Blazers have earned a considerable amount of rest. They are banged up and sick and certainly need it. Although Lillard and Matthews have played every night, you could tell with the amount of miscommunications the Blazers had tonight they were running out of gas.

Russell Westbrook helms Thunder's cruise past Hornets posted by Thunder Fan

Thunder coach Scott Brooks was worried his team would be tired after a tough win in San Antonio a night earlier.

Russell Westbrook scored 29 points to lead Oklahoma City to a 98-75 victory over Charlotte on Friday night, snapping the Hornets' season-high four-game win streak.

"We talk about playing a defensive brand every night and in back-to-back games to come back with a defensive effort for 48 minutes," Brooks said. "I'm really proud of our effort. I thought that set the tone. We locked in defensively and throughout the game it was solid."

Charlotte scored the game's first basket then the Thunder reeled off nine straight points to take a lead they never relinquished in winning for the second straight day.

Westbrook scored 13 points in the first quarter, and Oklahoma City opened a 59-40 halftime lead.

"It was good that we didn't come out flat and came out with some energy," Westbrook said. "We were hungry."

Brian Roberts came off the bench to lead the Hornets with 17 points, 11 in the final period.

Al Jefferson, averaging 19.1 per game, didn't get his first basket until there were four minutes left in the first half and finished with just four points.

The Thunder played their fifth straight game without MVP Kevin Durant, who has a sprained ankle.

Westbrook, coming off of a 34-point effort in Thursday's win at San Antonio, started the game shooting 7 of 9. He finished with his 11th straight game of 25 points or more.

"They're so good defensively, in the first quarter we just had a tough time making shots and everything was contested," said Hornets coach Steve Clifford. "They are just so long and so big. That's why their defense has been good all year."

2014 San Antonio Spurs Preseason Report posted by Spurs Fan

San Antonio Spurs performance was almost perfect, which earned them the 2013-14 season, championship title. The players performed as expected, and there was not a single contract, which could be considered bad. The Spurs ended the season with an impressive 62-20 record.

For the 2014-15 season, San Antonio Spurs have second best chance of winning the title again. The Spurs have met Miami Heat in the finals two times in a row, which makes Miami the favorite this season; however, changes in the team could keep shifting the odds between them. San Antonio Spurs have an excellent system in place for a long time, and Gregg Popovich could again lead the team to victory. The three star players, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili, and Tim Duncan are no doubt getting older, but Popovich has managed their time excellently up to now, and he continues to do so this season as well.

Kawhi Leonard, who is a star and MVP of the last series, has been retained for $3million for the next season. Boris Diaw, Matt Bonner, and Paddy Mills are all key players, and are re-signed by the Spurs, and Greg Popovich, the coach, obviously had his contract extended. San Antonio Spurs are focusing completely on this season and considering legacies as well. Tim Duncan who was a rookie in 1999 anchored the team's first championship. He has five rings up to now, and he will be concentrating on getting his sixth, even though he is aging. For Duncan, a sixth title would make him all-time great, and he will not want to miss this opportunity.

Coach Popovich, and international stars, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili will also be aiming for the same thing of being listed as the all-time greats, and hence will be working hard towards their sixth win. Quite a bit is riding for these players this season, and hence we can expect the best from them.

Gasol out indefinitely with MCL sprain posted by Brad Hurt

An MRI on Marc Gasol's left knee, which he injured in the first half of the Grizzlies' loss to the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night, revealed a Grade 2 sprain of the medial collateral ligament (MCL).  The injury, similar to one suffered two years ago by Zach Randolph, will keep Gasol out of action indefinitely but will not require surgery.  Kosta Koufos will start in his place.  This is a huge blow for the team, both in terms of production and morale.  The injury has been called "non-contact", although there could have been some contact as it occurred while the Spurs' Danny Green posted up against Gasol and backed into him.  Even so, it's still a freakish, unfortunate injury.Continue reading "Gasol out indefinitely with MCL sprain"

Gasol leaves loss with knee sprain posted by Brad Hurt

The Grizzlies had reason to be proud as they returned home Friday to face the perennially tough San Antonio Spurs.  They had just finished the most successful West Coast road trip in a decade.  Now they would have the FedEx Forum crowd behind them to urge them to victory.  Unfortunately, the Spurs would have none of that, playing the role of the rude houseguests with a 102-86 victory.

Potentially far worse for the home team, however, is the fact that center Marc Gasol left the game after suffering a non-contact injury to his left knee early in the second quarter and did not return.  The team is calling it a sprain, and Gasol will undergo an MRI today.  Losing Gasol for any extended period of time would be a crushing blow to the team.  He is currently averaging 16 points and more than 7 rebounds per game, teaming up with Zach Randolph to form an imposing post duo.  Randolph has been putting up monster numbers in his own right, but losing Gasol would undoubtedly change the way teams choose to defend Randolph, enabling more double-and-triple teams.  The Grizzlies currently have the 23rd-ranked offensive output in the league, averaging 94.1 points per game.  Ideally, they would like to see that number increase as they work toward a return to the playoffs come April.  Gasol is also a great veteran leader for the team, and intangibles are difficult to replace.  So let's hope the sprain isn't too severe and Gasol can return to action soon.

Change needs to come! posted by Paul Hansborough III

I love the Spurs but, Duncan needs to retire, Parker needs to develop a jumpshot in the worst way, Rj needs to go somewhere else he couldn t buy a bucket against Memphis, we need to get a bonified athletic shooting forward and shooting guard in the draft or via free agency. Another center would help because again Duncan is on his last leg!Continue reading "Change needs to come!"


Parker has no desire to transfer to other NBA teams posted by nbaball

The starting pointguard of the San Antonio Spurs has categorically denied persistent report that he had the desire to transfer to other National Basketball Association (NBA) teams.
Tony Parker told the media that there is no truth to the report since his heart belongs to the Spurs and he wants to stay with the team for many years to come.
Parker said he had a house in San Antonio and had no intention at the moment to move to other NBA teams other than the Spurs.
He revealed that he has confidence that a suitable agreement will be reached between him and the Spurs so that he will remain with the team for many years to come.
To show his desire to remain with the Spurs, Parker has decided to skip the World's Basketball Championship slated on August 28 to September 12 in Istambul, Turkey.
The superstar pointguard said he decided to forego his chance to play for France in the global basketball event to help the Spurs in the next NBA season by keeping himself from injury.
The 27-year-old pointguard had been a vital factor for the success of the Spurs the past 10 years wherein he won championship with the ball club.
Parker is very significant for the Spurs management since he do not only orchestrate plays but also contribute and offense and defense as well.
The Spurs was earlier defeated by the red-hot Phoenix Suns 4-0 in their best of seven NBA second round playoff match-up.
The French pointguard and the rest of the Spurs roster tried their very best to inflict defeat to the Suns but their effort were futile as the Suns proved hotter in the end.

Big Week for the Thunder posted by john howard

Losing to Indiana last night was tough.  If they had one last night, they would be tied for the 5th seed with Phoenix and 2 games ahead of 7th in front of San Antonio.  But, that didn't happen.  All is not lost, it just makes this week more difficult.  Tonight they are at home against the Spurs.  They have a one game lead over them.  A loss tonight would put the Thunder in 7th.  A win would keep them in 6th and put 2 games between them and San Antonio and more breathing room going into the last 14 games.

The Thunder play the Spurs, the Lakers, Houston, and Portland. Going 2-2 would be fine.  That would keep them in the playoffs and still have a shot at a good seed. Anything above that would be great. Anything below that would put them in danger of falling to the 8th seed.  It all starts tonight with San Antonio. 

Houston may be the biggest game of the week.  Right now, they are the first team not in the playoffs. They can win 50 games if they run the table.  That makes the Thunder's magic number 9, since they have 42 wins. So, winning that game would reduce the magic number by 2. 

Portland is a game and a half behind OKC.  Sweeping the Spurs and the Trailblazers would distance OKC from the bottom to seeds and keep them in the hunt for the 5th seed.  With the 5th seed, they would likely face Utah, the team they have had the most success with of those in the top 4.

As a sidenote, Russell Westbrook played limited minutes with a stomach virus last night.  Eric Maynor did good, as usual, in his absence.  But, they are going to need everyone at full throttle this week.

New York Knicks, what the salary cap future holds posted by Paul Stengel

CLAAAANG!!!  Another errant Knicks shot glances off the rim.  The New York Knickerbockers have mastered the art of losing for the past 10 years.  The only silver lining after this season is the possibility of signing two big name, “max contract” players.  The Knicks traded away their upcoming draft pick (along with Jared Jeffries and others) to Houston,  to free up more money for these players.  Nothing is guaranteed, the Knicks aren’t necessarily getting anyone for their trouble. 


The losing that the Knicks have been doing is a relatively new experience for their head coach, Mike D’Antoni.  D’Antoni came over from Phoenix, where he had an outstanding winning percentage, playoff appearances every year, and usually a late-season meeting with the San Antonio Spurs that ultimately would decide who would come out of the west.  Before he coached Amare Stoudemire, Steve Nash and Shawn Marion to 60 wins a year.  Now he leads Al Harrington and a band of inexperienced, below average knicks to likely two 30 win seasons. 


The Knicks have been on a downward spiral since they decided to trade away their franchise player of the 90’s Patrick Ewing.  They have been compiling bad contracts ever since, and it wasn’t until Donnie Walsh became the active general manager that their attitude toward free agents began to change.  Starting with the trades of Jamal Crawford and Zach Randolph, Walsh has managed to free up more and more salary cap space, and with it, the possibility of greater things in the future.

Dunk History: Some of our friends' favorite dunks, Vol. 2 (Ball Don't Lie)

As the summer wears on fall descends! , with training camps and preseason play still off in (what feels like) the distant future IMMINENT! , we turn our attention to the past. Join us as we while away a few late-summer moments recalling some of the most scintillating slams of yesteryear, the most thunderous throwdowns ever to sear themselves into our memories. This is Dunk History . Today, we ask some of our favorite dunk enthusiasts in various entertainment realms to share stories about their favorite throwdowns of yore. Please check the italicized short bios for more information about our contributors! Will Weldon Will Weldon is a comedian and actor from Los Angeles that you can follow @oldmanweldon . This dunk made it all OK: the anguish of the '13 Finals loss, watching my favorite group of old men run out of gas JUST before the finish line, seeing Manu Ginóbili seemingly no longer be able to complete at an NBA level. None of that mattered. The San Antonio Spurs had their vengeance, and Ginóbili was the one who turned the tide in the clinching Game 5; to quote Sean Connery, "Who's the old man now, dog?" (I may not have that quote 100 percent correct). Also, it made Tim Duncan smile, which is the first time that's happened outside of him laughing at Joey Crawford, so it must've been special. [ Follow Dunks Don't Lie on Tumblr: The best slams from all of basketball ] Blake Wexler Blake Wexler is a stand-up comedian living in Los Angeles. He wrote "NBA Commissioner Silver’s Office Hours" for Comedy Central. You can follow him @BlakeWexler . Have you ever been shooting on your mini-basketball hoop at home, and in a moment of bored insanity you just throw the ball as hard as you can through the hoop, scaring your dog? Yes? Well then you should seek help. No? Well, in that case, my inability to relate continues to be a constant obstacle in my career. The throw-in dunk is one of my favorite plays in sports. It’s something that only the most physically gifted athletes can pull off, and yet when it happens, the guy doing it looks he’s never played basketball before. Javale McGee personifies the throw-in dunk. He looks like he should be held in the same regard as someone like Tyson Chandler, but when he’s actually on the court, he looks like he’s on bath salts. McGee has pulled this stunt a few times, but I chose this one because the fact that the Philadelphia 76ers let him anywhere near Nerlens Noel and Joel Embiid makes the play even more bizarre. John Lurie John Lurie once played basketball better than President Obama. He is now a painter whose work you can find here . You can follow him @lurie_john . Shawn Kemp had just come into the league. He was 19 years old and his youth was part of what made this so compelling. When you asked me to write something, it wasthe first dunk that came to mind. How I remembered it was that he got a pass at the top of the key, dribbled past one Knick and then went up in the air from just inside the foul line. Kenny Walker, who had been the dubious Slam Dunk champ the year before, went up with him.  Kemp hung in the air, pulled the ball back into his chest and stayed in the air for a long time, and then dunked the ball behind his head, long after Walker had returned to the ground. How does someone do that? I understand how someone jumps higher than someone else, but how does the very rare athlete deny the laws of physics and just hang there at the peak of his jump for longer than anyone else? That was what I had thought was amazing about this dunk. But I was wrong. I found it on YouTube and that was not what had happened at all. What was so astounding was the speed . I don’t know how to describe astounding speed. I have almost only seen it in animals. At a zoo as a child, a sparrow landed in a pit of motionless crocodiles. One couldn’t even tell if the crocodiles were alive or dead, they were inert for the entire time. Then there was a loud CLAMP! The sparrow was gone. And a wing stuck out of the crocodile’s mouth. But it really wasn’t possible to see the actual thing happen. That was kind of what this dunk was like. It was that fast. Nicole Conlan Nicole Conlan is a comedian, video oroducer for Jalopnik and UCB writer. You can follow her @NicoleConlan . We all know what my REAL favorite dunk is . But in terms of basketball dunks, a few things come to mind. I have the misfortune of being a Denver Nuggets fan, which was fun when I first got into basketball during the 2012-13 season, and got progressively less fun as time went on. The SB Nation Nuggets blog Denver Stiffs did a really thorough job of detailing what is almost inarguably the greatest dunk in franchise history , and it's impossible to talk about recent Nuggets dunks (Dunkets?) without thinking of Kenneth Faried, the Manimal, whose whole value to our team is his ability to make fast-break points at an altitude that leaves the opposing team dizzy (a talent that was completely squandered under Brian Shaw, but I'll save my 2,000 words on that for another column). But the dunk that's most memorable to me comes from short-lived Nugget Nate Robinson . This was during the otherwise unremarkable 2013-14 season. It was Brian Shaw's first year, and the transition wasn't easy. When I became a Nuggets fan, Taco Bell had a promotion where they gave out free tacos every time the Nuggets scored 110 points. ONE HUNDRED AND TEN! We were a high-scoring team — which doesn't mean we were necessarily good — but when you're a 22-year-old idiot who doesn't understand the finer points of the sport yet, seeing a team rack up 110 points every game is a great way to get excited. That had sort of stopped when Brian Shaw arrived. He wanted to focus on defense, which, like, fine, I get it, but what happened to my fast-break points? My crazy turnarounds? My big dunks? I was still a fan, just a slightly more bored one. Then we played the Los Angeles Lakers. I won't make them the butt of this joke, because I like to think I'm a better comedian than that, but all I'll say is, I finally got got my high-scoring fun team back. And Nate Robinson was ON FIRE. Aside from being a funny guy with a big personality and DOPE sneakers, he's amazing at basketball. This is just one of four big dunks from him that night. The way he sprinted down the court, the athleticism to make the dunk, and the joy of hanging off the rim? Maybe not very sportsmanlike, but super FUN. I was finally seeing the Nuggets I fell in love with again. That moment kind of encapsulates the Nuggets at their best. They don't have the most basketball intelligence, and they're never going to have the most finesse of any team. They just have the most horsepower. They're sprightly. They get to the basket faster, because they train with no oxygen. And it's fun to watch. Plus, Nate Robinson is my height. That's cool! That means I could dunk, too! ... Right? Charlie Bury Charlie Bury is a standup comedian who recently moved from Chicago to Los Angeles. If you book him for your show, he'd definitely be down to talk about Zaza Pachulia. You can follow him @CharlieSaturday . Arvydas Sabonis taught me geography. His no-look, behind-the-head passes inspired my sixth-grade self to pick up an atlas in search of Lithuania, his homeland. I discovered a Baltic nation bordered by Belarus, Poland, Latvia and that weird, separate part of Russia that seems like a place we aren’t supposed to know about. Watching that giant Arvydas drill standstill threes from the top of the arc made me wonder what Lithuanians ate, which gods they worshipped and who their enemies were. When Chicago native Jeremy Pargo rolled into town on Dec. 2, 2010, he probably wasn’t pondering the breakup of the Soviet Union. I’d be surprised if he even sampled the local dumplings. Pargo and his Maccabi Tel Aviv squad were there to battle Zalgiris Kaunas, arguably the most storied franchise in Lithuanian basketball history (not that that’s an argument you’ll ever have). The arena was packed with bearded dudes banging drums, waving green flags and wearing green wigs. Pargo wasn’t fazed. The crossover alone would’ve stopped any summer game with a microphone-wielding MC in its tracks. The poor defender was so shaken he looked like he was struggling to stay upright against a severe gust of wind. Now all that stood between Pargo and the basket was a 7-foot-3 center — coincidentally, the same height as Arvydas Sabonis, who began and ended his career with that very Zalgiris team. Jeremy Pargo has no time for such folklore. One dribble, ball cocked back and BOOM! A proud nation was momentarily humbled, its traditional chants hushed. A Lithuanian sixth-grader picked up an atlas and probably already knew where Chicago was.

You can follow him @DanielVanKirk . Look, I know you're gonna get a few Jordan dunks. I'm an Illinois kid. I get it. And I know there are better-looking dunks than the one I selected. But there are three reasons why I love this one. 1. It's Tree Rollins. Not only is the guy 7-foot-1; he was biting opponents before it was cool. In 1983, he basically clotheslined Danny Ainge at half-court before getting into a brawl that ended with Tree biting Ainge's finger down to the tendon. So any highlight that has Tree Rollins looking like a bitch is a great one in my book. Also, dunking on Rollins means Jordan can say he dunked over a "tree." So that's pretty sweet. 2. Unlike all the players that have come since and tried to emulate him, Jordan really could take on an entire team. In just this play, he dismantles four Atlanta Hawks while the fifth has to hang back in case he dished it out. And the play starts with a pass fake! This isn't a fast-break, dunk on the run, set up something pretty (I mean, it is Jordan, so there's plenty of those). This like Jordan took a bet on how easily he could break this team, and it paid off. Not that Jordan would actually take any sort of bet like that. I mean ... why would he gamble at all? I doubt he would. And I also love his completely unrelated MLB stint purely based on his love of the game. And not Roulette. 3. And this is the best. Let's say Jordan didn't dunk here. Yes, I know that would defeat the entire purpose of this piece of wonderful Yahoo Sports entertainment, but let’s just say he didn't. This would still have made the highlight reel on "The George Michael Sports Machine" for the simple reason that Michael Jordan destroys No. 53, Cliff Levingston. Cliff tries to guard him from the top to the bottom of this play and it just doesn't matter. No. 23 does what Drago couldn't do in "Rocky IV." He breaks him. Look at the angle in this video. It's number 10 on the list: Like your grandma after a long walk around the mall, Levingston says, "You guys keep going! I think I'm just gonna lay down here. And please check the window. I feel a draft." And that's it. This is one of my favorite all-time dunks. There are many like it, but this one is mine. Thanks for letting me play along! Eric Dadourian Eric Dadourian is a comedian from Los Angeles, and you can follow him @ericdadourian . The Chicago Bulls were good in the 1990s. The Bulls were really good, and cool, and smart and good-looking, popular and funny and nice (kind of) and the Bulls had Michael Jordan. All they did was win, all the time, and look really good doing it. The Bulls beat everybody: they beat my Lakers, they beat your SuperSonics, they beat everybody, and they were, like, really casual and good-looking and fun and smart about it. Then there was this dunk, this dunk that had a name. This dunk's name was "The Dunk," and I knew that because that’s what it said on the poster I had up in my room of this dunk: "The Dunk." On the poster was John Starks and he had his mouth wide-open, screaming in mid-air, with his arm cocked back in a real painful looking way and it looked like he was hurling his body full force at the rim, and the ball was just a part of his body. Now, this dunk is not the most impressive dunk, it doesn't have that nasty crunch, or that high-flying grace, but this dunk is my favorite dunk. What this dunk had was so much purpose and so much anger and so much John Starks, who was not as cool as Michael Jordan, who was decidedly not chill. John Starks, who worked at a grocery store in Tulsa and everybody liked to make such a big deal about that. John Starks, who let the whole world get under his skin, who always lost in the1990s it seemed like to Reggie Miller and Michael Jordan and the Bulls all the time. It seemed like he was always angry and losing, and maybe, just maybe, there was a weird little chubby 12-year-old who hated Michael Jordan and the Bulls for being so good and popular and cool and good-looking, who was sitting in his room staring at this poster of Michael Jordan getting dunked on (sort of) by John Starks. This dunk is like scratching an itch, and if you feel like the whole world gets under your skin, scratching an itch is pretty good. Also, he dunked it with his left. [read full article]
