Houston’s Dwight Howard was a guest on ESPN’s SportsNation and was being, well, Dwight Howard. You know, clowning around, dunking on a mini-hoop, screaming his lungs out and dunking on ESPN staff. Of course being the huge Spurs fan she is, SportsNation host, Michelle Beadle started the “Go Spurs Go” chant when Dwight dunked on her, yelled at the top of his lungs and proclaimed “The Spurs suck. Go Rockets baby!” ProjectSpurs.com

“Kyrie Irving was unstoppable. I don’t know how to guard that,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “He did a hell of a job. We all know how talented he is, but he really went to a new level tonight. He had a hell of a night and that talent just got us.” Akron Beacon Journal

After years of fighting her way into unlikely positions, Hammon is quick to brush off the idea that women have different coaching sensibilities, or that her gender is an issue. Despite the physical differences between the sexes, "skill-wise, there are some women who can compete with the guys: shooting, dribbling, passing, and the IQ stuff," she says. And on the court and in the locker room with the Spurs, she adds, "You're getting to know these guys as people, and as players. You have to develop a rapport. They give me a lot of respect." Still, the gravity of her position is starting to sink in. "It's 2015, and I'm the first female coach in any of the major sports," she says, laughing. "That's ridiculous!" Marie Claire

I have to imagine you've had other opportunities to get back into the league. Have you passed up jobs like this in the past? Vlade Divac: Well yeah, I still keep very close relationship with the old guys that I had some time (with) during my long-time NBA career. I have friends all over the place. One of them — and he's probably an icon now in the NBA, somebody who had vision a long time ago, somebody who actually is probably the reason why I came to the NBA in the first place — that's (San Antonio Spurs coach) Gregg Popovich. (He) was one of the first, let's say, NBA people, to start exploring in the late '80s outside the NBA. He was the reason why we all came in '89, that first wave of European guys, which I had a lot of respect for the coach. I had an opportunity to talk to him the other day, he was very happy that I came back to NBA. I asked for some advice from his people. USA Today Sports

Duncan failed to score a basket for the first time in 1,310 career games. Popovich was jokingly asked if he would talk to Duncan so it didn't happen again. "I don't talk to Timmy too much anymore," Popovich said. "So, if you want to tell him, go ahead. Say, 'What the hell was that all about? What are you doing?' " ESPN.com

Popovich was one of several NBA personages who taped welcome-back messages for TNT broadcaster Craig Sager, who returned Thursday night to his role as a sideline reporter after battling leukemia. “Good to have you here,” Popovich said in his videotaped message. “Congratulations on meeting and winning against a hell of a challenge. Our challenge is pale by comparison to what you just did. We’re all happy for you. “Now the probing, incisive questions will begin to roll. We’re all looking forward to it, as well as the fashion statement each week.” San Antonio Express-News

There are others in the Spurs’ locker room who would call rumors of Parker’s resurrection premature. One of them is Parker. “I don’t want to jinx it,” the 32-year-old point guard said. “Every time I think I’m back, I get something else wrong.” San Antonio Express-News

Manu Ginobili all but shrugged when presented with those oddities, saying he had “no clue” how to explain them in light of what seems painfully obvious to the eye: The Spurs, ranked 14th in offensive efficiency, simply aren’t the same team that regularly executed devastating passing sequences like this one en route to last year’s championship. “It doesn’t feel like…we feel the necessity of really moving that defense to score, like the way we did against Portland, OKC and Miami last year in the playoffs,” he said. “So we have a ways to go. Hopefully in these last (22) games we accomplish it. But we do it sporadically. It’s not yet as consistent as we did last year. We’re still trying to figure it out.” San Antonio Express-News
