    i missed the game, but i listened to it on the radio, at least the end of it anyway..........great win against those POS Mavs.....anytime we can beat the Mavs or Lakers, it is a great win in my book.

    One thing did upset me and send me off into quite a few expletives during my drive.....Duncan had 28 pts and 19 rebounds with over 3 minutes left in the game.......he never touched the ball on offense again, at least according to the radio broadcast. I found this to be ridiculous.....run the ball through Timmy tonight, especially late, since he was killing the Mavs.....it is so frustrating, I swear.

    Thankfully Carter missed that last shot, or else it would be Juck and the rest of the Mavs faithful donning the smiles.

    It was an ugly win, and it was stupid that Duncan didn't get any plays run for him late. But at the same time Kawhi missed 2 open 3s and green 1 open 3 late that should have put the game away, so it's not like the offense wasn't working, just couldn't hit the open shot. I'll take the win vs one of our biggest rivals. It is disappointing tho that we are currently playing our worst basketball of the season this late into it. Luckily there are two factors working in our favor going forward, there is still over a month to go to turn it around, and it's happened entirely with TP out. They mentioned today what I have been saying all along, TP is healing fast like he normally does and is most likely going to return within a week instead of 2

    what an embarrassing suckfest that was tonight.......

    it was like they were still out hunting for eggs instead of playing basketball. they got schooled at home by the backups.....

    props to the Heat, they obviously took this game a lot more seriously than the Spurs.

    GO SPURS GO

    meh, i think it was exactly like what happened when the spurs played in miami. difference was the heat had an all star to close the door on the bummed out spurs. I dont take much from this game or the one earlier, its going to be a great series if it happens.

    only thing it does is that it locks up home court for the heat in the finals, but its not like miami is golden state or boston! hopefully we can stay above the thunder in the standings after we play them in the next few days. i think if we are still in first after that game, we should be able to get the 1 seed, we only have to go to denver after that, all the other games are very winnable

    No team in west has a chance against the allstars. I still think Spurs make it to finals though. Every west team will get sweeped by the cHeat however.They ruined the NBA. Thanks Stern.I smell a possibility of 3 peat as well.

    While it will be difficult, I think the spurs and grizzle could beat them, key work being could. The nuggets would at least make it difficult in the games in Denver. The clippers and thunder would likely get swept tho. But ya, the heat will most likely be lifting the trophy. It's not because its a super team aspect, I still don't think that works. It works in this instance because one of them is lebron james

    Well, tonight probably cost us the one seed, which really doesn't matter, but what does is that we are banged up and playing like crap. Hopefully come the second round we will be healthy and starting to jell again, we should be ok in the first round, so long as we stay at the 2

    Im not a Spurs fan by no means but PLEASE crush the Fakers in the first round. Im sooo sick of the David Stern NBA wanting his cash cow in the playoffs. They play no defense at all and the whole team is carried by Kobe being a ballhog. I never understand why teams don't double him constantly. Make someone else win the game. Pop will take him out as much as possible. I cant stand seeing them in the playoffs.

    Diaw and Manu are most likely out the first round and the Denver game was horrid.


    The Spurs have built their offense around Parker and Manu getting into the lane and kicking out so just double Parker and watch the Spurs start clanking threes because their shooters are not shooting well. Then add in the injuries and them missing games and they are struggling.

    Joseph plays really good defense but he can not penetrate like the other two can.

    Da Colo did the best job and probing the paint last night he just needs to start shooting some of those to keep the defense honest but he was the best ball handler last night yet he still makes some mistakes.

    Why Pop puts Blair in he is so frustrating to watch reminds me of Malik Rose very inconsistent letting the open man go to the hoop for that alley opp was terrible and guys just shot over him. I wish Pop would just run Baynes out there hell at least he alter some shots and got a block.

    Rebounding is becoming an issue

    Guys are not making shots and Booner has proven my rant several years ago when they extended him I blew up on several message boards about how Bufford should be fired for that stupidity. (Yes I still believe that I think the real brains left in Presti) well to be fair I went into full nuclear melt down because they signed RJ and Booner to those stupid contracts.

    I'd love to play the lakers in the playoffs, everyone other idiot analyst on TV keeps saying they will lose to the lakers in the playoffs, off, I'd love to see magic's reaction after the spurs destroy them, freaking homer! Unfortunately the spurs will prob be the 2 seed, we don't exactly have an easy schedule left, while the thunder's is incredibly easy. What I'm hoping is the lakers needing that game vs the spurs to stay in the hunt, and us to officially end their season b4 the playoffs, I'd love that almost as much!

    There is one thing that all the injuries have done, the spurs are playing through Timmy a lot more, and if TP isn't 100% and Manu isn't back to some capacity by the second round, we will need to change it up to survive, run things through Timmy, and just make it ugly. Might not work vs the grizzle, but it could vs the clips or nuggets.

    This is on Bufford and Pop for not getting better at the trade deadline. They lack the Athleticism on the team and they do not have anough to cover up the holes. Ya ya they where winning and did not want to mess up Chemistry but the is a poor excuse when you know you needed to make changes. This reminds me off the year they started off hot sucked going down the stretch and got bounced by Memphis in the first round.

    They need more Leonard type players. They need some bigs' that can rebound. Then relying on Tony which has never turned out well for the Spurs on a consistent basis in the playoffs; they just hammer him and double team him and the Spurs sputter and TP disappears. Relying on Manu this much was crazy he has not been healthy for 3 years now and they miss him more than they miss TP when he was out.

    Right now the Spurs team is a disaster on it's way to wasting yet another year of Duncan because they keep signing dumb arse contracts to the likes of Matt Bonner and RJ. They need to blow up part of the team this summer.

    Diaw gone (think he is only partially guaranteed money ); Blair why is he even still there they should have took the bag of Doritos that was offered for him. Use the Amnesty on Booner that guy has dissappeared in every playoff game for the Spurs. Patty Mills gone.Gary Neal maybe but he needs to be a specialist with a very limited role and cheap. Manu if he does come back Vet Min and make him a 15-20 minute guy but you can not rely on him.

    They may need to make a trade like the year they moved up for Leonard the only guy with value is Cujo and TP. You are not trading Leonard at this point.

    Spurs can still get by the first round, in time for Manu to return. Getting rid of Action Jax was a mistake I feel. I think we'll be ok but we definitely have to play better against the Nuggets.

    They need Manu to get healthy in the biggest way.

    Right now the team is bleeding and I doubt Diaw makes it back even if they get too the 2nd round. I am not counting on him with having surgery.

    I think it's premature to count the spurs out, they can beat the rockets and warriors as is, and Parker should be back to full strength by the second round. We can get to the conference finals quite easily if its the nuggets in the second round. Beyond that, it's going to be tough without everyone being back and healthy

    According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Pop and Jackson have been clashing over his role for a while now. Woj claims that there even was discussion of releasing or trading Jackson before the trade deadline. That he wasn't released might suggest that the situation wasn't so bad at the time and both parties thought they could patch things up.

    Then on Friday, for some reason, things came to a head and Pop decided that it was the "best for the group" to waive Jackson

    Spurs sign Tracy McGrady

    http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/9179561/tracy-mcgrady-san-antonio-spurs-reach-deal



    It's official," McGrady told ESPN.com in a text message Tuesday afternoon.
    The 33-year-old McGrady will be eligible to play for the Spurs during the playoffs because he was not on an NBA roster as of March 1. He said he will not play in San Antonio's regular-season finale on Wednesday night against Minnesota.
