Paul Garcia

Spurs point in the paint: 22. Suns total points: 20. SA leads 39-20 with 4:38 left in 2Q.

Paul Garcia

Spurs turnover = Suns bucket on the other end. SA lead cut to 16.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs up 18, and still haven't connected from 3-point range. And Parker remains scoreless. Playing D, protecting ball can go a long way.

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.

Simone Sandri

Meanwhile gli Spurs alla loro ultima gara della "Rodeo Trip" stanno distruggendo i Suns...+20 all'inizio del secondo quarto.

Paul Garcia

The Spurs are on an 8-0 run to start the 2Q. SA defense holding Suns to 4/27 shooting and 6 turnovers. Kawhi is locking down Bledsoe.

Paul Garcia

Kawhi, that's just not fair. Spurs go up by 19 now with the Kawhi dunk in open court.

Jeff McDonald

The Spurs are just out-energizing these guys right now. Funny how blah a team can look (this time PHX) when the ball isn't going in.

Dan McCarney

30-13 Spurs early in second quarter.

Jeff McDonald

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

Paul Garcia

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

Paul Garcia

1Q: Spurs 24, Suns 13. SA defense holds PHX to 4/21 shooting w/ 3 turnovers. SA outscores PHX 14-4 in paint. Splitter 6 points. SA 48% FG

Paul Coro

SA 24, PHX 13 after 1Q. The Suns' worst two scoring 1st quarters of the year have come at home against the Spurs. PHX: 4-21 FG. #SunsVsSpurs

Jeff McDonald

Spurs' offense is looking more familiar, with ball moving, guards attacking. If they could make open 3s (0 for4), might be running away.

Paul Garcia

Spurs now have their largest lead at 9 points, as the defense is holding PHX to 2/11 shooting early. PHX also with 2 turnovers.

Jeff McDonald

Suns meanwhile shooting 16.7 percent. Which ought to improve, but Spurs doing a good job to limiting them to jumpers.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs off to a nice start, up 17-4. But Parker again starting slow. 0 for 4.

Paul Garcia

Manu finds Tiago through the middle of traffic for the layup and the Spurs have 14 points. PHX defense showing that 26th ranking post ASB.

Paul Garcia

Defensively, the Spurs have Kawhi Leonard guarding Eric Bledsoe, the Suns' leading scorer post ASB. Parker's guarding Knight.

Dan McCarney

Great start for Los Spurs, out to an 8-0 lead against PHX

Jeff McDonald

Everything coming up Spurs so far. Suns still looking for first bucket.

Michael De Leon

Belinelli poses nearly au naturel for magazine cover ift.tt/1vM2Lbc #spurs

Jeff McDonald

Suns are young, hungry, like to push and are fighting for playoff spot. Not exactly the best matchup for Spurs on b2b to close rodeo trip.

Jeff McDonald

EVENTUALLY, got Pop to talk in general about how the Spurs value analytics, which is pretty much what we suspected: http://t.co/n41VehujEw

Jeff McDonald

Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Duncan, Splitter. Suns: Bledsoe, Knight, Tucker, Morris, Len.

Paul Coro

The Spurs will start Parker, Green, Leonard, Duncan & Splitter for #SunsVsSpurs tonight. It'll only be the 8th time that lineup has started.

Dan McCarney

Marco Belinelli goes full Diggler on GQ cover, Buford honored with lifetime achievement award at Sloan. Pretty wide-ranging Spurs day...

Jeff McDonald

All hands on deck tonight for Spurs, per Pop. Same starters as last night, including Splitter.

Jeff McDonald

Pop, as you might expect, had no idea the Spurs were named "Analytics Organization of the Year" at the Sloan Conference.

Spurs win ‘Best Analytics Organization’ at Sloan Sports Conference ift.tt/189TU8b #spurs

Dan McCarney

Buford once described the Spurs to me as the proverbial blind squirrel finding occasional nut. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Derek Bodner

Spurs won the Sloan award for Best Analytics Organization. Like 2 weeks after Charles Barkley says they don't use analytics.

Jim Eichenhofer

Key game in West race tonight: Spurs (35-23, 4 games ahead of NOLA) at Suns (31-28, half game behind NOLA) on @NBATV at 8 Central

Travis Heath

Like he knows anything about winning. RT @SloanSportsConf: "Tanking for the draft doesn't put our league in a good light." -@San Antonio Spurs RC Buford

Baxter Holmes

Good stuff from @Spurs GM R.C. Buford here at #SSAC15. Easy to see why their organization is on the cutting edge in many ways.

Andy Larsen

"Our first filter is our values." - Spurs GM RC Buford on choosing players. The Jazz feel the same way.

David 'Dubi' Pick

Scouts for Thunder, Spurs, Grizzlies & Jazz - I'm hearing - at Adidas Next Generation Tournament. Not much NBA talent though.

Jonah Ballow

Kobe on the Triangle: “Phil’s influence on the game is more present than you think.” He adds, the Spurs use a ton of Triangle elements.

Michael De Leon

5 things to watch: Spurs vs. Suns ift.tt/1aCCLWp #spurs

Jeff McDonald

Things I like about Spurs' chances tonight: They seemed to figure some things out in 4Q vs. Sac; Parker started to look confident ...

Boris Diaw

Game day in Phoenix. Any Spurs fans in town ? I know there are !!!! #GoSpursGo
