The San Antonio Spurs lose Tony Parker for the next 2-4 weeks

Blogged under Big Spurs News,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,Need to step up by alleyoop on Monday 28 February 2011 at 4:36 pm

The San Antonio Spurs will be without 28-year old point guard Tony Parker for the next 2-4 weeks due to a calf injury. Parker has played in 59 games (all starts) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 32.4 minutes, 17.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, 6.6 assists and 1.2 steals per game. Luckily for the Spurs, they are well stocked on the roster at point guard. 24-year old George Hill will replace Parker in the starting lineup. Hill has played in 53 games (1 start) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 28.1 minutes, 11.2 points, 2.9 rebounds and 2.4 assists. 26-year old rookie Gary Neal will back Hill up at the point. He has payed in 57 games (0 starts) so far this year for the Spurs and he is averaging 19.9 minutes, 9.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.0 assist per game. Hill is shooting 40.9% from three point range and Neal is shooting 41.9% from three point range so look for the Spurs to extend the opposing defenses until Tony Parker is ready to return to action.

UPDATE: (3/5/2011) – Tony Parker must be a fast healer because he played last night against the Heat. Parker played 23 minutes in which he had 15 points, 2 rebounds, 8 assists and 1 steal in the Spurs’ 125-95 demolition of the Miami Heat.

The Spurs outscored the Grizzlies 36-25 in the 4th quarter last night and they held them to 37.5% from the floor which helps explain the nice home win. Manu Ginobili was on fire last night for the Spurs as he finished up with 35 points, 6 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 steals and 1 blocked shot. Matt Bonner (14 points in 25 minutes) and George Hill (14 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal) pitched in with solid games off the bench last night.

The San Antonio Spurs were outstanding in the first half of the year

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General by alleyoop on Tuesday 22 February 2011 at 12:45 pm

The Spurs rolled into the All-Star break with a 46-10 record which was the best in the NBA. They are six games ahead of the Mavericks in the Southwest Division and the Mavericks have the second best record in the Western Conference. The Spurs will look to continue to limit the minutes that Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker have to play in the second half as it worked well in the first half. Plus by lessening the workload during the regular season, it will keep the veterans fresh for the playoffs.

BIGGEST SURPRISE: 26-year old undrafted guard Gary Neal out of Towson State not only made the Spurs’ roster, but he has excelled off the bench. Neal has played in 56 games (0 starts) for the Sprus so far this year and he is averaging 19.7 minutes, 8.8 points, 2.4 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game. He is shooting an outstanding 41% from three point range so far this year. Neal was just the latest find for the Spurs and they hope he will finish the season strongly.

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT: The only disappointment I could come up with in the first half is the injury to first round pick James Anderson. The 21-year old SG/SF James Anderson has played in only 9 games (0 starts) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 13.0 minutes, 5.2 points, 0.8 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game. The Spurs expect to get Anderson back soon and he will give them a boost off the bench.

DeJuan Blair is getting red hot for the San Antonio Spurs right now

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by alleyoop on Friday 11 February 2011 at 7:41 pm

21-year old power forward/center DeJuan Blair is red hot for the Spurs right now. In his last five games, Blair is averaging 30.0 minutes, 15.2 points, 10.2 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.6 steals per game. He four double/doubles in his last five games and he is shooting 57.8% from the floor in those games. Blair has now played in 52 games (all starts) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 21.9 minutes, 8.5 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.2 steals per game. Blair is one of the best young big men in the NBA and I think the Spurs will play him more than usual when the playoffs start.
