Phoenix Suns 105, San Antonio Spurs 101 in O.T.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Game Recaps, General by joelapinski on Thursday 28 February 2013 at 7:42 am

The Spurs got shocked at home by the Suns last night.  The Suns outscored the Spurs 33-23 in the 4th quarter and then 5-1 in O.T. to finish them off.  Tony Parker (22 points, 4 rebounds, 8 assists and 1 steal) and Tim Duncan (19 points, 11 rebounds, 1 steal and 1 blocked shot) led the way for the Spurs in this game.  Kawhi Leonard (15 points, 1 rebound, 4 assists and 3 steals), DeJuan Blair (15 points, 6 rebounds, 1 assist and 1 blocked shot in 21 minutes) and Manu Ginobili (10 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal) also pitched in for the Spurs last night.  The Spurs are now 45-14 on the season.

Patty Mills always steps up when the San Antonio Spurs need him to

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Steppin Up by joelapinski on Tuesday 26 February 2013 at 8:57 am

24-year old point guard Patty Mills only gets big minutes on the nights that Coach Popovich decides to rest his starters, as he is pretty much buried on the bench.  But, Mills always seems to step up when the Spurs need him to.  He has played in 47 games (2 starts) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 10.1 minutes, 4.4 points, 0.8 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game.  In his 6 games (2 starts) in which he has played at least 20 minutes, Mills is averaging 22.0 minutes, 11.0 points, 2.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game.  Mills could probably start at point guard for some teams, but he’s the #3 guy for the Spurs.

San Antonio Spurs 97, Phoenix Suns 87

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Game Recaps, General by joelapinski on Sunday 24 February 2013 at 9:56 pm

The Spurs held the Suns to 37% shooting from the floor and it was a big reason for the nice road win tonight.  Kawhi Leonard (16 points, 9 rebounds, 2 assists, 3 steals and 1 blocked shot) and Patty Mills (16 points, 2 rebounds and 1 assist in 23 minutes) led the way for the Spurs tonight.  Tiago Splitter (14 points, 5 rebounds and 1 assist), Boris Diaw (12 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 blocked shot), Manu Ginobili (12 points, 3 rebounds, 6 assists, 3 steals and 1 blocked shot) and Tim Duncan (10 points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists) also pitched in for the Spurs.  The Spurs are now 45-13 on the year.

Golden State Warriors 107, San Antonio Spurs 101 in O.T.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Game Recaps, General by joelapinski on Saturday 23 February 2013 at 8:43 am

The Spurs seemed to get a little tired in O.T. as the Warriors outscored them 14-8.  The Spurs only shot 38.9% from the floor and that didn’t help matters last night.  Danny Green (20 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 1 steal), Tim Duncan (19 points, 13 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal and 4 blocked shots), Tony Parker (18 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals) and Manu Ginobili (18 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 steals) led the way for the Spurs.  Kawhi Leonard (10 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 blocked shot) and Tiago Splitter (10 points and 5 rebounds) also pitched in for the Spurs.  The Spurs are now 44-13 on the year.

San Antonio Spurs 116, Los Angeles Clippers 90

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Game Recaps, General by joelapinski on Friday 22 February 2013 at 6:33 am

The Spurs destroyed the Clippers in L.A. last night as they sent them a message.  The Spurs shot 58.9% from the floor and they were up 92-64 after three quarters last night before they called off the dogs.  Tony Parker was outstanding last night as he shot 12 of 16 from the floor (75%) and 7 of 7 from the free throw line.  Parker led the way for the Spurs with 31 points, 2 rebounds, 7 assists and 1 steal.  Danny Green also had a rock solid game with 15 points, 3 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 steals and 2 blocked shots.  Tiago Splitter (10 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and 2 blocked shots) and Manu Ginobili (10 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists in 17 minutes) also were solid last night for the Spurs.  The Spurs are now 44-12 on the season.

Tim Duncan is still playing at a high level for the San Antonio Spurs

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Steppin Up by joelapinski on Thursday 21 February 2013 at 9:53 am

36-year old power forward Tim Duncan is still playing rock solid basketball for the Spurs.  He has played in 45 games (all starts) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 29.7 minutes, 17.0 points, 9.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 2.8 blocked shots per game.  He already has 20 double-doubles this year despite head coach Greg Popovich watching his workload, and that is impressive.  He is shooting 50.1% from the floor, which is good.  But, he is also shooting 82.2% from the free throw line this year, which is amazing for him.  The Spurs hope that Duncan keeps up the good work the rest of the season and there is no reason to think he won’t.

The San Antonio Spurs roll into the All-Star Break

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Season Reviews by joelapinski on Sunday 17 February 2013 at 7:05 am

The Spurs have rolled into the All-Star Break with a 42-12 (77.8%) record, which has them in first place in the Western Conference, 2.5 games up on the Thunder.  Here is a look at the players who made the biggest impacts for the Spurs in the first half of the 2012-13 season:

Team MVP:  Tony Parker - 30-year old point guard Tony Parker keeps rolling along for the Spurs as he just seems to keep getting better.  He has played in 51 games (all starts) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 32.9 minutes, 20.8 points, 3.0 rebounds and 7.6 assists per game.  He is shooting an amazing 53.6% from the floor so far this year, which is outstanding for any player, but especially a guard.

Biggest Surprise:  Tiago Splitter - 28-year old center Tiago Splitter has taken his game to a new level so far in 2012-13.  Splitter has played in 54 games (32 starts) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 23.8 minutes, 10.6 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game.  Splitter is shooting a rock solid 59% from the floor so far this year.  The Spurs hope that Splitter keeps rolling in the second half of the season.

Biggest Disappointment:  Stephen Jackson - 34-year old small forward Stephen Jackson is having a horrible year for the Spurs.  He has played in 36 games (3 starts) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 20.9 minutes, 6.6 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game.  He is only shooting 37.5% from the floor, 25.9% from three point range and 69.6% from the free throw line so far this year.

Kawhi Leonard is stepping up for the San Antonio Spurs in February

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Steppin Up by joelapinski on Wednesday 13 February 2013 at 9:14 pm

With some of the older guys hurting a little bit this month, 21-year old small forward Kawhi Leonard has been stepping up his game a bit.  Leonard has played in 5 games (all starts) so far this month and he is averaging 32.0 minutes, 16.0 points, 6.6 rebounds, 0.6 assists and 2.0 steals per game.  He has now played in 34 games (33 starts) for the Spurs so far this year and he is averaging 29.2 minutes, 10.4 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.9 steals per game.  Leonard is shooting a solid 49.8% from the floor, 40% from three point range and 82.7% from the free throw line so far this year, which is impressive.  Leonard is going to be the type of player the Spurs build around down the road, but for now, he will have to bide his time as an offensive option behind Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili.

Tiago Splitter is on a role lately for the San Antonio Spurs

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Steppin Up by joelapinski on Monday 11 February 2013 at 12:02 pm

28-year old center Tiago Splitter has been playing really well lately for the Spurs.  Since January 1st, Splitter has played in 19 games (all starts) for the Spurs in which he is averaging 28.6 minutes, 12.4 points, 7.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game.  Splitter has now played in 52 games (30 starts) overall this year for the Spurs and he is averaging 23.6 minutes, 10.6 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game.  Splitter is shooting an impressive 59.1% from the floor and 74.1% from the free throw line so far this year, which is pretty impressive.  Look for Splitter’s P.T. to continue to rise if he keeps playing like he is right now.

Danny Green is off to a blazing start in February for the San Antonio Spurs

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Steppin Up by joelapinski on Monday 11 February 2013 at 11:59 am

The Spurs have playing without Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan lately, but 25-year old SG/SF Danny Green has been picking up the slack so far this month.  He has played in 4 games (all starts) for the Spurs so far this month and he is averaging 30.8 minutes, 18.0 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.3 blocked shots per game.  Green has now played in 50 games (all starts) overall this year and he is averaging 27.2 minutes, 10.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 steals per game.  Green is shooting a solid 44.8% from the floor, 42.9% from three point range and 85% from the free throw line, so he has been a really efficient shooter so far this year for the Spurs.  The Spurs need Green to keep playing like he is right now until Ginobili returns to action.
