#Spurs notebook: NBA in July? 'Count me out' says Popovich; Splitter-Baynes limit Boogie expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a… via @mySA

Paul Garcia

Patrick to Manu to Baynes with the touch pass for the dunk. SA by 22.

Jason Jones

Derrick Williams tried to humiliate Baynes. At least he got a foul out of the dunk try

Jason Jones

San Antonio's bigs are being very physical with Cousins tonight. Baynes out here playing left tackle to keep Cuz out the paint.

Jeff McDonald

Baynes vs. Cousins = somebody 'bout to die

Paul Garcia

Each of SA core bigs scored b/w 6-12 pts: Duncan: 6 pts, 10 reb Splitter: 8 pts Diaw: 12 pts Baynes: 12 pts, 10 reb projectspurs.com/2015-articles/…

Jeff McDonald

Aron Baynes has just been fantastic tonight.

Paul Garcia

12 points for Aron Baynes. He's 6/6 from the free throw line. SA by 30.

Dan McCarney

Speaking of maximum carnage, if BAYNES ever writes a biography, there's his title. You're welcome, Aron.

Paul Garcia

Half: Kawhi Leonard: 11 points, 6 boards, 3 steals, 2 blocks. Danny Green: 12 points. Aron Baynes: 10 points, 6 boards.

Paul Garcia

Kawhi joins Baynes in double-digit scoring before half with 11 points now. SA by 24.

Paul Garcia

Spurs lead by 18 with 6:25 until half. Kawhi has 7 points, 5 boards, 2 steals, 1 block. Baynes 10 points, 6 rebounds, 1 block.

Paul Garcia

10 first half points for the Baynes off the bench. SA back up 20.

Dan McCarney

That really was a great contest by BAYNES. Can't make a clean vertical challenge any better than that.

Jeff McDonald

It's honestly difficult where Spurs would be without Baynes, who was signed like two days before training camp or something.

Dan McCarney

Am I watching BAYNES play basketball (8 pts, 5 rebs off the bench), or the pit fighting montage from Conan?

Paul Garcia

The Spurs take a 15 point lead after Baynes' free throws. He has 8 points off the bench. PHX recently beat OKC.

Jeff McDonald

Baynes has 8 points and five boards in 7 minutes off the bench.

Jeff McDonald

Aron Baynes wins this year's "Patty Mills Award" as Aussie who couldn't get off the bench last yr, but now has become kind of indispensable.

Paul Garcia

Baynes has such an advantage in the paint right now. Just had to stand under the rim for the offensive board. SA w/ 16 points in paint.

Dan McCarney

BAYNES, the Alabaster Barbarian, whistled for the offensive foul.

Paul Garcia

Manu with 2 assists, as he feeds the Baynes. SA goes up 11. Baynes should have an advantage vs. lighter PHX frontcourt.

Paul Garcia

The Spurs' bench is now outscoring the Kings' bench 40-17. Manu with 11 points, Diaw with 7, Beli/Baynes 8 each.

Dan McCarney

Evans v BAYNES would be a decent cage fight.

Paul Garcia

Kawhi Leonard and Aron Baynes each scored 6 points in the second quarter.

Dan McCarney

Yes, Sacramento let Aron Baynes get behind the defense for a fastbreak dunk.

Bill Herenda

Gorgeous high low from Baynes to Duncan & Spurs up 45-44 #Kings v #Spurs #NBA #SacKings #KingsTalk

Dan McCarney

Duncan reciprocates, hitting BAYNES in stride with an outlet pass for the transition dunk.

Paul Garcia

Duncan outlet to Baynes. Spurs by 5.

Dan McCarney

Spurs take the lead on the immortal BAYNES-to-Duncan hi-lo.

Jeff McDonald

Carl Landry, Cousins' replacement, just picked up his fourth foul. Baynes to the line with a shot at a tie.

Paul Garcia

Baynes gets position under the rim on Lopez. Duncan feeds him and Baynes spins for the layup. Baynes has 6 points.

Paul Garcia

Kawhi drives, feeds the Baynes. Spurs have tied the Blazers at 48. Didn't see that coming.

Dan McCarney

Reverse layups: BAYNES 1-1, Parker 0-1.

Paul Garcia

Mistake on my part, Baynes also scored with a dunk. So Duncan, Kawhi, Baynes have all scored from starters.

Jeff McDonald

Aron Baynes with blood on him. When the cops find out whose it is, we'll let you know.

Mike Richman

Aron Baynes is bleeding, of course, so they'll stop play for a moment to get him cleaned up.

Paul Garcia

Baynes starts once more RT @PaulCastroNBA: They have Aldridge in the starting line up. Could change. http://t.co/QIqBhkjwGL

Jeff McDonald

Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Duncan, Baynes. Blazers: Lillard, Matthews, Batum, Aldridge, Lopez.

Jeff McDonald

#Spurs notebook from @Jeff McDonald: Splitter’s woes; Baynes' emergence; Kudos for #Blazers expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a… via @mySA

Jeff McDonald

In this notebook, Pop explains why he's been going with Baynes over Splitter at center expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a… via @mySA

Paul Garcia

Good use of the mismatch by Joe Ingles. Knew he had Baynes on him, took him 1-on-1 to the hole. UTA by 12.

Tony Jones

Spurs got away with one. That Baynes tip shouldn't have counted. Ball was in the cylinder

Paul Garcia

Pop with a lineup change: Insert Cojo, Williams, Kawhi, Duncan and Baynes.

Tony Jones

Aron Baynes is the dude you think twice about challenging in pick-up games because you know you have to go to work the next day

Dan McCarney

BAYNES is shooting 44 percent on jumpers, which isn't bad for a guy built like a cross between a weight lifter and a defensive end.

Dan McCarney

Now BAYNES is shooting running hook shots...

Jeff McDonald

Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Duncan, Baynes. Utah: Exum, Ingles, Hayward, Favors, Gobert.

Jeff McDonald

On a night in Utah expected to be rife with Australians, talked to Aron Baynes about the rise of hoops Down Under. blog.mysanantonio.com/spursnation/20…
