The San Antonio Spurs sign Alonzo Gee

Blogged under Big Spurs News, Bloglockers, Comings & Goings, Front Page, General by alleyoop on Monday 29 March 2010 at 5:48 pm

The Spurs have signed 22-year old shooting guard Alonzo Gee for the rest of the year. Gee played in 11 games (2 starts) for the Wizards this season in which he averaged 16.5 minutes, 7.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game. He will start getting minutes for the Spurs as soon as he gets in town. I really like this move for the Spurs.

George Hill has been solid all year long for the San Antonio Spurs

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Steppin Up by alleyoop on Wednesday 24 March 2010 at 1:45 pm

With Tony Parker out of action the Spurs needed George Hill to replace him as the starting point guard and he is playing well. In his last five games, Hill has averaged 34.0 minutes, 13.2 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. Hill has now played in 69 games (34 starts) this season and he is averaging 29.0 minutes, 12.1 points, 2.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. George Hill is one of the better kept secrets in the NBA but the city of San Antonio knows that he is a big time player.

The San Antonio Spurs will likely start leaning on Tim Duncan more

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Steppin Up by alleyoop on Wednesday 24 March 2010 at 1:41 pm

With Tony Parker out do to injury and Richard Jefferson not playing up to his ability it seems as if the Spurs will need to lean heavily on Tim Duncan the rest of the year. Duncan has played in 66 games (65 starts) for the Spurs this season and he is averaging 31.7 minutes, 18.4 points, 10.3 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.6 blocked shots per game. The Spurs will need a little more production out of Duncan offensively because they can’t afford to draw the Lakers in the first round of the playoffs.

The San Antonio Spurs sign Garrett Temple

Blogged under Big Spurs News, Bloglockers, Comings & Goings, Front Page, General by alleyoop on Monday 15 March 2010 at 10:17 am

The Spurs have signed 23-year old shooting guard Garrett Temple to a 10-day contract. Temple has played in 14 games (0 starts) for the Rockets & Kings this season in which he is averaging 10.1 minutes, 4.0 points, 1.2 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game. This is a good signing for the Spurs as Temple has played decent this year and he should provide some help off the bench.

Antonio McDyess is still playing pretty well for the San Antonio Spurs

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Steppin Up by alleyoop on Thursday 11 March 2010 at 12:57 pm

The Spurs have watched 35-year old PF/C Antonio McDyess’ minutes this season and it’s helping keep him fresh and healthy. McDyess has played in 58 games (31 starts) for the Spurs this season and he is averaging 20.7 minutes, 6.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game. McDyess teams with rookie DeJaun Blair to give the Spurs the muscle they need under the basket.

The San Antonio Spurs sign Cedric Jackson

Blogged under Big Spurs News, Bloglockers, Comings & Goings, Front Page, General by alleyoop on Thursday 11 March 2010 at 9:09 am

The Spurs have signed 24-year old point guard Cedric Jackson. He played in 5 games (0 starts) for the Cavaliers earlier this season and he averaged 2.0 minutes, 0.2 points, 0.2 rebounds and 0.4 assists per game. This was a depth signing and little more for the Spurs as they wanted another point guard on the roster with Tony Parker out of action.

Manu Ginobli is playing great for the San Antonio Spurs

Blogged under Big Spurs News, Bloglockers, General, Steppin Up by Andrew on Tuesday 9 March 2010 at 10:54 pm

Manu Ginobli has been playing some great basketball for the San Antonio Spurs lately, and they are going to need him to keep it up with Tony Parker out.  He has stepped up his production on offense and in 15 games since February 3rd, Ginobli is averaging 19.2 points.  That is nearly 5 more points a game than his season average of 14.6.  He had a monster game for the Spurs last night against the Cleveland Cavaliers, putting up 38 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, and 2 steals.  Unfortunately the Spurs fell 97-95 to the Cavs who were missing LeBron James.  The 32-year-old Ginobli looked a lot younger last night and the hobbled Spurs are going to need more of that vintage Ginobli.  Hopefully he doesn’t break down come playoff time, because he is getting more minutes lately.  Ginobli proved last night that he can still be one of the top wing players in the league and that is a great sign for the Spurs.

The San Antonio Spurs lose Tony Parker

Blogged under Big Spurs News, Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by alleyoop on Monday 8 March 2010 at 9:19 am

Tony Parker has a fractured right hand which will cause him to likely miss at least the next six weeks. Parker has played in 50 games (all starts) for the Spurs this season and he is averaging 31.6 minutes, 16.5 points, 2.4 rebounds and 5.7 assists per game. George Hill will slide over to point guard from shooting guard until Parker is ready to return to action. Hill has played in 60 games (25 starts) for the Spurs this season and he is averaging 28.1 minutes, 11.7 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. Hill has really been solid lately as he is averaging 37.4 minutes, 16.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.0 steal per game in his last 5 contests. Parker’s injury causes a chain reaction in the starting lineup as Manu Ginobili or Roger Mason will have to replace Hill as the starting shooting guard. Ginobili has played in 55 games (1 start) for the Spurs this season and he is averaging 27.5 minutes, 14.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 1.5 steals per game. The Spurs would likely prefer to keep him coming off the bench if possible. Roger Mason was the starting shooting guard last season for the Spurs. He has played in 57 games (4 starts) this season and he is averaging 19.3 minutes, 7.0 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game. The Spurs are lucky to have quality depth on the roster but they will miss Parker.

The San Antonio Spurs release Michael Finley

Blogged under Big Spurs News, Bloglockers, Comings & Goings, Front Page, General by alleyoop on Tuesday 2 March 2010 at 12:36 pm

36-year old SG/SF Michael Finley asked for and got his release from the Spurs. He played in 25 games (6 starts) for the Spurs this season and he was averaging 15.8 minutes, 3.7 points, 1.5 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game. Finley wasn’t too happy with his role with the team and he wants to try to hook on with another team that will be in the playoffs. Finley played in 347 games (178 starts) in five years with the Spurs and he averaged 25.3 minutes, 9.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game. The Spurs won’t lose any sleep over losing Finley whose game appears to be slipping.

San Antonio Spurs 106, New Orleans Hornets 92

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Game Recaps, General by alleyoop on Tuesday 2 March 2010 at 10:13 am

The Spurs shot 50.6% from the floor last night and that was the biggest reason for the nice road win last night. George Hill got the start at shooting guard for the Spurs last night and he responded with 23 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists and 2 blocked shots in 44 minutes on the court. Tim Duncan (22 points, 9 rebounds and 2 blocked shots) and Tony Parker (18 points, 2 rebounds and 6 assists in 28 minutes) pitched in offensively to help the Spurs roll last night. The Spurs are now 34-24 on the season.
