The San Antonio Spurs are getting propelled by this trio of players

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up,The NBA Playoffs by joelapinski on Monday 9 May 2016 at 1:49 pm

30-year old power forward LaMarcus Aldridge, 24-year old small forward Kawhi Leonard and 33-year old point guard Tony Parker are leading the way for the San Antonio Spurs against the Thunder.  Aldridge has started all 4 games against the Thunder and he is averaging 38.3 minutes, 30.8 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.3 blocked shots per game.  He is shooting 59% from the floor, he is 2 for 3 (66.7%) from three point range and he is hitting 88.5% from the free throw line so far in this series!  Leonard has played in 4 games (all starts) in this series and he is averaging 34.2 minutes, 22.8 points, 7.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.8 steals per game.  Leonard is shooting 49.3% from the floor, 30.8% from three point range and 77.8% from the free throw line so far in this series.  Parker has stepped up to the challenge that Russell Westbrook is presenting to the Spurs.  Parker has started all 4 games against the Thunder and he is averaging 30.0 minutes, 12.5 points, 3.3 rebounds and 6.5 assists per game.  He is shooting a rock solid 50% from the floor in this series.  The Spurs are going to been big time performances from all three of these guys if they want to prevail over the Thunder in this series!

The San Antonio Spurs got to rest their players against the Grizzlies in the first round of the playoffs

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up,The NBA Playoffs by joelapinski on Monday 25 April 2016 at 10:40 pm

The San Antonio Spurs got to rest their players despite being in the playoffs against the hapless Memphis Grizzlies.  14 players scored at least 2 points against the Grizzlies!  The Spurs outscored them 412-324 in the four game sweep!  The Spurs played well offensively as they shot 48.7% from the floor, 47.1% from three point range and 82.4% from the free throw line against the Grizzlies.  The Spurs also played stellar defense as they held the Grizzlies to 39.4% shooting from the floor and 29.7% from three point range in this series!  Small forward Kawhi Leonard is now the main man for the Spurs, as he was the only player on the team to average more than 30 minutes a game against the Grizzlies.  Leonard started all four games against the Grizzlies and he averaged 31.4 minutes, 21.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 2.8 steals and 2.8 blocked shots per game.  He shot 52.7% from the floor, 61.1% from three point range and 94.4% from the free throw line against the Grizzlies!  Power forward LaMarcus Aldridge also started all four games against the Grizzlies and he averaged 28.2 minutes, 14.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 0.3 assists and 1.8 blocked shots per game.  He shot 51.1% from the floor and 90.9% from the free throw line against the Grizzlies.  Backup shooting guard Patrick Mills also played well in his four games off the bench as he averaged 19.5 minutes, 10.5 points, 1.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.0 steal per game.  Point guard Tony Parker played in 4 games (all starts) against the Grizzlies and he averaged 23.3 minutes, 9.8 points, 1.0 rebound and 4.8 assists per game.  Shooting guard Manu Ginobili played in all four games in this series off the bench and he averaged 18.9 minutes, 7.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game.  Center Tim Duncan played in 4 games (all starts) against the Grizzlies and he averaged 20.2 minutes, 5.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 2.0 blocked shots per game.  I hope that Parker, Duncan and Ginobili are all rested up…..because they are going to be needed to play big minutes if the Spurs are going to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder in the second round of the playoffs!

Patty Mills is off to a great start in the playoffs for the San Antonio Spurs

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up,The NBA Playoffs by joelapinski on Friday 22 April 2016 at 2:14 pm

Backup shooting guard Patty Mills is making the most of the San Antonio Spurs‘ demolition of the Memphis Grizzlies.  He has played in 2 games off the bench for the Spurs so far in the playoffs and he is averaging 19.0 minutes, 15.5 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steal per game.  Mills is shooting 9 of 16 (56.3%) from the floor, 7 of 13 (53.8%) from three point range and 6 of 8 (75%) from the free throw line so far against the Grizzlies.  Look for Mills to continue to get a lot of P.T. against the Grizzlies.

The San Antonio Spurs have already had 14 players score in the first two games of the playoff series against the Memphis Grizzlies.  The Spurs are averaging 100.0 points per game and they have been very efficient in doing so.  The Spurs are shooting 49.7% from the floor, 48.7% from three point range and 85.4% from the free throw line in this series, which is pretty darn impressive.  It’s not just the offense, as the Spurs are holding the Grizzlies to a paltry 71.0 points per game so far in this series.  The Grizzlies are only shooting 35.8% from the floor, 31.3% from three point range and 58.3% from the free throw line so far in this series.  Small forward Kawhi Leonard and power forward LaMarcus Aldridge have been getting some rest in this series.  Leonard has started both games against the Grizzlies and he is averaging 27.6 minutes, 16.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, 3.0 steals and 2.0 blocked shots per game.  He is shooting 52.2% from the floor, 50% from three point range and 100% from the free throw line so far in this series.  Aldridge has started both games against the Grizzlies and he is averaging 26.7 minutes, 13.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 3.0 blocked shots per game.  He is shooting 50% from the floor so far in this series.  The Spurs are looking like they are going to sweep this series and wait back for the winner of the Thunder/Mavericks’ series.

The “Big Three” appear locked and loaded for the San Antonio Spurs

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up,The NBA Playoffs by joelapinski on Thursday 25 April 2013 at 2:31 pm

The Big Three (Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili) are firing on all cylinders against the Lakers in the playoffs.  Parker has started both games against the Lakers and he is averaging 37.0 minutes, 23.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 7.5 assists and 1.5 steals per game as he continues to get better for the Spurs.  Duncan has started both games against the Lakers and he is averaging 34.5 minutes, 16.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.0 blocked shot per game.  Manu Ginobili has played in both games coming off the bench for the Spurs and he is averaging 19.0 minutes, 15.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.5 steals per game.  Ginobili is a little banged up so the Spurs are going to watch his minutes, but he makes the most of the few he gets.

Patrick Mills is stepping up for the San Antonio Spurs

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Steppin Up by joelapinski on Tuesday 16 April 2013 at 1:25 pm

24-year old point guard Patrick Mills doesn’t get to play much, but he plays well when called upon.  He has played in 3 games (0 starts) so far in April for the Spurs and he is averaging 22.6 minutes, 10.7 points, 1.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.3 steals per game.  Mills has played in 57 games (2 starts) overall this year and he is averaging 11.4 minutes, 5.0 points, 0.9 assists and 1.1 assists per game.  Mills could probably start for a lot of teams in the NBA, but he sits near the end of the bench for the Spurs.
