Pop giving Daye a good earful as he sits after that TO. Did not seem particularly excited to hear what the head coach had to say.
Austin Daye averages one bad play every 2.2 possessions.
To say Alan Anderson just beat Austin Daye off the dribble does not seem adequate. Daye's uniform almost burst into flames.
Ha, Teletovic and Daye just made 3s against each other. Both looked at the bench like, who the $*%! is this guy?
Pop pleased with Austin Daye's 11 rebounder. Said they want him to be complete player not just reliant on hitting 3s.
With Austin Daye's double-double of 10 points and 10 boards, Spurs now have five players in double-figures scoring. SA over 100 points.
Austin Daye up to 10 and 10. He's basically Tim Duncan.
For those wondering (and you know you were) Austin Daye's career rebounding high is 17.
Austin Daye still tied for game-high with 10 rebounds. He has been active.
I don't want to alarm anyone, but this game's leading rebounder is Austin Daye (4). Which way to the fallout shelter?
Combined to go 38.4 percent last year. Swap out Mills, Belinelli for Joseph, Daye in the process, that's how you get major offensive slump.
It's amazing that Austin Daye is on the Spurs roster. More amazing that he's contributing meaningful minutes.
Daye drills kick-out 3. Eat it, McCarney.
Austin Daye iso just happened. Pop slowly shakes his head.
Blatt played 8 in the first half. Popovich played 9, and two of those were Aron Baynes & Austin Daye. Varejao played 22 minutes!
Marco isn't a great player, but the drop-off between him and Austin Daye is fairly substantial.
My favorite lineup so far in this 10-game season: Danny Green (PG), Austin Daye (SG), Boris Diaw (SF), Matt Bonner (PF), Jeff Ayres (C)
Pop has the weirdest lineup ever. Green, Daye, Bonner, Diaw, and Ayres???
Now a 10-point lead. Pop going with the dream team of Ayres, Anderson, Daye, Diaw and Green.
Austin Daye now to get some minutes at SF. A position SA used him at in Summer League this past July.
Well Daye got yanked. Spurs to run small ball lineup with Cojo, Green, Kawhi, Anderson, and Baynes.
Austin Daye just threw the ball away and Popovich called timeout to basically scream at Daye for much of it.
Related: Austin Daye might never pass again.
Austin Daye finds Aron Baynes under the basket. Baynes back rims the dunk. Next trip, Daye is picked off by Shved, who goes coast-to-coast.
Pop chews out Austin Daye as the Spurs give the ball up and Shved gets an open dunk. SA up 13. Pop's not happy.
Spurs go up 15 after the Austin Daye 3-point bomb.
Apropos of nothing, how did I miss that Austin Daye and Brandon Knight were Pistons teammates. Knight. And Daye. Knight and Daye!
Belinelli, Tiago out against the Clippers tomorrow. Means more Baynes, Daye and Ayres, which is a lot of fun.
I’ve seen too much Austin Daye for my liking.
Good pass by Daye. Duncan kicked out to him in the post, and Daye fed him right away to give Duncan advantage over Davis.
Nice pass from Anderson there on the break. Occupies defender, drops it off for Daye, layup. Simple.
Spurs take timeout, and Daye is still in. That's...interesting.
The cavalry is here -- Duncan, Parker, Leonard back with 9 minutes left. But Daye is in too, so they're riding mules.
Pop to @monroe_sa on why he started Daye: "I wanted to do that. If you want to write 'Popovich Screws Up', have some [testicles] & write it"
Spurs were outscored 54-36 in the paint. Sign they miss Tiago Splitter, also, possible outcome of Daye starting.
Austin Daye was the starting center tonight. Spurs lost by five to a good team on the road. You know, that’s not too crazy.
Sure-fire way to lose an NBA game: Your only basket in five crucial fourth-quarter minutes is from Austin Daye.
Problem: Too much Austin Daye. Solution: More Tim Duncan.
Austin Daye comes through off the screen, he's knocked down two three's after starting tonight.
When Austin Daye is hitting clutch threes, you just know this is the Spurs way
The Austin Daye Experience was fun while it lasted
Daye had been struggling to knock down a three, but finally does there late in the shot clock. Solid dribble pitch action with Duncan.
Nice two-man game between Duncan and Daye, Austin drills the pull-up 3 for a 9-point lead.
