Mike Monroe

Tim Duncan down on the floor flexing his ankle ... never a good sight for #Spurs ... but he appears to be OK

Paul Garcia

Phoenix owning this second quarter with a 19-6 scoring edge, Spurs' 15 point lead gone, as both teams are tied at 30.

Paul Garcia

Thomas starting to get inside the teeth of Spurs' defense, which is allowing him to score or find teammates for quality looks.

Quixem Ramirez

Spurs are one of the unique teams that passes the ball too much when the offense is out of sync.

Dan McCarney

Ooh, nice drive from Joseph. Had to corral bad pass from Ginoibli beyond arc, found a crease and attacked it. Spurs back up 9.

Paul Coro

This is a slow 8-0 #Suns run. It took 3 FT trips and a tip-in and Thomas-crated slam from Len. Spurs are cold too. SA 24-17. #SunsVsSpurs

Vince Thomas

What is the deal with Bulls D-rebounding? This performance is akin to Spurs playing iso-ball or Warriors clanging treys

Paul Garcia

Suns on a 6-0 run to start the 2Q, cut Spurs' lead down to 7 early in the 2Q. Thomas with assist to Len by driving in and feeding for dunk.

Mike Monroe

8-0 #Suns run has cut #Spurs lead to 24-17 2:20 into 2nd quarter in PHX

Dan McCarney

Spurs O in the tank a little bit to start the second quarter. No points in first 2:20. Then Len dunks, lead down to 9, timeout them.

Quixem Ramirez

End of first quarter: Spurs 24, Suns 11. Parker with 6 points, Kawhi with 4 points, 4 rebounds.

Paul Garcia

1Q: Spurs 24, Suns 11. SA already held a 15 point lead at one time. SA shooting 40%. PHX 22%. SA starters 14 points, Bench 10 points.

Quixem Ramirez

10 minutes in and the Spurs have 19 points. Phoenix still in single digits.

Dan McCarney

Not like you never see this with the Spurs, but a true 5-nation army right now: Canada, Argentina, France, Italy, Australia.

Quixem Ramirez

10-2 Spurs run. Holding Phoenix to 22 FG%. Typical Spurs stuff.

Dan McCarney

BAYNES with the slick little reverse layup and Los Spurs are up 18-8 late in the first quarter.

Joe Cowley

LeBron will be looking to sign with the Spurs by next week.

Tommy Beer

Bulls interior passing - both tonight and vs New York - has been terrific. Almost Spurs-esque

Paul Garcia

Spurs run "Post-3" for Kawhi early, unfortunately, he got double teamed and blocked on the spin.

Quixem Ramirez

Spurs starters: Parker, Green, Kawhi, Duncan, Daye.

Mike Monroe

Austin Daye didn't play vs. Mavericks but he's starting for #Spurs vs. #Suns ... the always unpredictable Popovich.

Jeff McDonald

What @Marc Stein said. Delay on Leonard all about cap flexibility in July. Spurs will pay max then because that's what it will take.

Jeff McDonald

Hanging out in South Texas tonight with 400 Elsas. Follow @Mike Monroe for updates of Suns-Spurs.

Marc Stein

Spurs' strategy, of course, not without risks. If Kawhi pulls a Parsons and signs a short-term max, that'll put some pressure on San Antonio

Marc Stein

Kawhi Leonard will be a max player next summer. Spurs know that's what it'll cost. There's only one reason Kawhi wasn't extended now and ...

Paul Coro

Hornacek on the Spurs' ways: "It's fun for a coach to watch, except if you're the opposing coach." #SunsVsSpurs

Ryen Russillo

Ricky Rubio will make more than Tony Parker over the next four years. (I realize this is specific to the Spurs, but...)

Danny Green

Spurs v Suns 10pm eastern...tune in

Mike Monroe

per Popovich, Kawhi Leonard to start for #Spurs with no minutes limit

Dan McCarney

Watching the Spurs every night will spoil you. Iso ball sticks out like a sore thumb.

Daniele Labanti

#nba guardiamoci pure quest'altro lebron. resto della mia idea: spurs sopra, poi spazio a tutti. ma i cavs sono una incognita

Chris Sheridan

No deals with Leonard-#Spurs, Butler-#Bulls, Harris-#Magic, RJax-#Thunder. #NBA free agency will be nuts next summer sheridanh

Is the Spurs strategy risky? Yes, of course. But there's enough upside (and little downside) to make waiting on Kawhi worth it.

Marcelo Bousquet

Kawhi Leonard no llegó a un acuerdo con Spurs y será agente libre con Restricciones, Klay Thompson acuerda con GS contrato max (70Mx 4 temp)

Quixem Ramirez

Kawhi's cap hold, now that he's a restricted free agent, could give the Spurs enough resources to make a splash if Duncan or Manu retire.

Quixem Ramirez

The Spurs not extending Kawhi is not just about Kawhi, ironically. It's about maintaining financial stability next offseason.

Game-day Orange Slices to preview #SunsVsSpurs. Suns in orange & Spurs in black for Halloween. bit.ly/1wlrFfz http://t.co/TFDmFMJlmW

Boris Diaw

2nd game of the season. Any Spurs fans in Phoenix ? See you tonight. #GoSpursGo

Yannis Koutroupis

Leonard changed the Spurs' fortunes completely. Why not change his with life-long security as soon as you can? He earned it.

Yannis Koutroupis

There are other ways Spurs could have preserved max contract spot while paying Leonard now. Not fair IMO that they decided to make him wait.

Yannis Koutroupis

Spurs save $9M in potential cap room by not extending Kawhi. Manu's cap hold=$10M. I would have renounced Manu later, paid Kawhi now myself.

Yannis Koutroupis

I get the Spurs' reasoning for waiting to extend Kawhi, it's just that I hate to see a player who has earned a raise have to wait.

Quixem Ramirez

Who knows? But I doubt it. RT @TheRockstar_1: agent sounds bitter for some reason, any bad blood between kawhi and Spurs?

Simone Sandri

Come un po' tutti a questo punto si aspettavano Leonard ha interrotto le trattative con gli Spurs e nella offseason diventerà restricted FA

Gary Lee

Spurs won’t give up Kawhi Leonard, but I’ll give it a 1.7 percent chance he comes to the Lakers. Because Cavaliers.

Emiliano Carchia

Spurs unlikely to come to terms with Leonard on contract extension sportando.com/en/usa/nba/139…
