Colt McCoy's most important play during his senior year was a tackle (against OU). Who said Swoopes doesn't measure up?

Mike Finger

It's pretty much been a wasted year for just about every Texas receiver not named Harris or Shipley. And both of those guys are seniors.

Mike Finger

Oh my God what did I do. RT: @taylorstakes: @Mike Finger Except Shipley was playing. So TCU is playing an easier UT squad.

Mike Finger

TCU is beating Texas almost exactly the same way Baylor beat Texas. Like, in case anyone was comparing them or something.

Mike Finger

I always give the fans the hits. RT @AutulloAAS: #recycyled

Mike Finger

If Texas can hold TCU to a field goal here, it'll still have about 1:30 to squeeze in one more first-half punt.

Mike Finger

Some affiliations have been known to outweigh that. RT @jppirk: @Mike Finger - he's a Horn

Mike Finger

Guessing a video-board appearance by Greg Abbott goes over much better at Baylor or at A&M than at UT.

Mike Finger

Not sure about either the spot that made it fourth-and-inches or the false start that could've been encroachment, but UT gets a FG. 13-3.

Mike Finger

Someone just made a mockery of special teams in a Texas game and for once it wasn't Texas.

Mike Finger

Disaster for the Longhorns. Swoopes fumble scooped and returned for a 40-yard TD by Lathan. TCU up 13-0.

Mike Finger

The funny thing is, with the way TCU is jumping routes, deep throws might be the safest Swoopes can make tonight.

Mike Finger

Texas and TCU have combined for 23 plays. They've gone for an average of 1.8 yards.

Mike Finger

Texas and TCU honoring the memory of the Case McCoy A&M game with this first-quarter offensive display.

Mike Finger

TCU hasn't played a better defense than the one it's facing tonight. Vance Bedford's group has peaked late and is legitimately elite.

Mike Finger

I pitched Steve Patterson the idea of strapping a WiFi router to jet-pack guy, to make him somewhat useful. He said he'd consider it.

Mike Finger

Jaxon Shipley runs out, slowly, for senior night wearing full uniform.

Mike Finger

Another big one for Dom Espinosa, who announced this week he won't be back for a sixth year.

Mike Finger

Huge ovation for David Ash running out for Senior Night in his blue jeans.

Dan McCarney

A wee bit late -- I had a face to stuff -- but Cory Joseph is questionable for tmw vs. Sacto, Mills and Splitter are out.

Mike Finger

Shipley still not warming up. Texas still saying he's available.

Mike Finger

Texas says Shipley, who injured his hamstring in a crash with OSU's wall, is available tonight.

Mike Finger

Jaxon Shipley is not among the group of receivers running warmup routes.

Mike Finger

Malcolm Brown and Aaron Green bonded in the national spotlight four years ago. Tonight they share it again. expressnews.com/sports/college…

This family in my apmt complex is eating Thanksgiving dinner in their garage. Is that a Texas thing??

It isn't officially Thanksgiving until you dunk on people on miniature hoops. At least in my family.

Lmfaoo!! RT @cthagod: How you going to tell "Get what I want" when I'm paying for everything?

Paul Garcia

If you have a few minutes for some reading about basketball in San Antonio, a 37-year old went off last night: projectspurs.com/2014-articles/…

Paul Garcia

Got in a 3-mile run before I feast, feast, and feast, feast, feast, the rest of the day. Happy Thanksgiving folks.

Paul Garcia

The Spurs announced Cory Joseph is questionable for Kings game Friday. Patty Mills, Tiago Splitter remain out.

Mike Finger

Mom, making dressing: "Oh, no! We're out of thyme!"

Tony Parker

Happy Thanksgiving !!!

Quixem Ramirez

I'm thankful for @tacobell, basketball and my family. Typically not in that order.

Kawhi Leonard Full Highlights vs Pacers ift.tt/1uYMcGE #spurs

Paul Garcia

Seven teams in the West already have 10 or more wins. Only one team (Toronto) has 10 or more in the East.

Paul Garcia

Overall now, the Spurs are scoring 102.4 Points Per 100 possessions (20th) and hold teams to 95.4 PP/100 (3rd). Net Rating of 7.0 (6th).

Paul Garcia

During their current 5-game winning streak, the Spurs are outscoring opponents by 18.8 points per 100 possessions (best during timeframe)

Paul Garcia

Like last season, Manu Ginobili is leading Spurs' core players in Net Rating. SA is 13.8 points per 100 possessions better w/ him in game.

Jeff McDonald

When Pop reaches 1K wins, he owes a bottle of wine to Messina. Also to Mike Budenholzer, who won two games in similar circumstances in 2012.

Jeff McDonald

For NBA clerical purposes, tonight's win still counts toward Popovich's overall record, despite his absence. He is now 977-447 all-time.

Jeff McDonald

Tony Parker has topped 20 points in three straight games, his longest regular-season streak since Feb. 2013.

Paul Garcia

Also from Spurs: Danny Green's 1.36 blocks per game lead all guards in the NBA right now.

Paul Garcia

From Spurs: Kawhi posted his 4th double-double of the season. He had 7 total all of last season.

Dan McCarney

Spurs have done a great job defending without Splitter but that was the game they missed him most this season.

Dan McCarney

Cousins, if you recall, was outstanding in recent meeting with 25 in (I think) 27 minutes, repeatedly scored on Duncan down the stretch.

Dan McCarney

Duncan on Boogie Cousins, who visits Friday: "He's great. He's great. He's strong, he's got great touch and he's really learned the game."

Paul Garcia

Cory Joseph might return Friday vs. Kings, Pop might still be out one or two more games: projectspurs.com/2014-articles/…

Dan McCarney

Duncan on the W: I think he's going to talk to somebody about not having Pop here anymore and Coach Messina letting him play like that.

Paul Garcia

Spurs' block leaders through 14 games: Tim Duncan (2.1), Danny Green (1.4). Green recorded 3 blocks tonight: projectspurs.com/2014-articles/…

Paul Garcia

After Stuckey scored 16 1st half points, SA defense clamped down on him. Held to 6 points, 2/7 shooting in 2nd half: projectspurs.com/2014-articles/…

Paul Garcia

With his 1/1 three from the corner, Tony Parker continues to lead the Spurs from distance at 65.2%: projectspurs.com/2014-articles/…

Jeff McDonald

Manu admits (duh) he's not the same player he was in Bologna. And Messina is not the same coach. Manu: "I'm not the only one getting old."

Jeff McDonald

En route to season-high 28 pts, with Messina looking on, Manu was back in Bologna: "I did have flashbacks to 2001, with him yelling at me."

Jeff McDonald

Kawhi Leonard says Messina didn't exactly go full Popovich on Wed, but ... "As he got more frustrated, he let us have it a little bit."

Paul Garcia

Rodney Stuckey on the Spurs: "Collectively as a group in the second half, they turned it up."

Paul Garcia

Pacers coach Frank Vogel pointed out the Spurs' "Big Four" in tonight's win for SA. Said they shot 59%, made 33 baskets.

Boris Diaw

Fans, thanks for coming tonight.Tough game but always good to win!Enjoy thanksgiving with your family tomorrow and see you soon. #GoSpursGo

Boris Diaw

Bonsoir les insomniaques. Merci pour vos messages si tard ou tôt. Demain c'est Thanksgiving ici donc repos. Bonne nuit ! #GoSpursGo

Paul Garcia

Manu said Kawhi was "incredible" tonight, especially in how he grabbed rebounds and fueled fast breaks.

Paul Garcia

Manu on his 28 points: "It was an akward game, I enjoyed it. The three days off sort of helped."

Paul Garcia

Manu on if he enjoyed having Messina running the team for 1 night: "I did. It was great to see him out there trying to take over the team."

Quixem Ramirez

Spurs improve to 15-3 when Kawhi scores 20+ points. #GetThosePointsKawhi

Quixem Ramirez

Nope nope nope RT @bballbreakdown: Perhaps Kobe will learn he doesn't have to take so many shots?

Paul Garcia

Messina said all plays he ran were from Spurs' playbook, not his old days with Bologna: "I would never dare to do Bologna stuff (here)."

Paul Garcia

Coach Messina on Kawhi Leonard: "Kawhi was outstanding." Said Kawhi did very well on the glass.

Quixem Ramirez

Manu on Kawhi: “He’s amazing. Sometimes he goes one against three and with those huge hands he manages to get to the basket."

Paul Garcia

Coach Messina: "I think our big trio did a good job collecting everyone together." #BigTrio

Paul Garcia

Coach Messina: "They're a tough team, very well coached. They came in shooting well."

Quixem Ramirez

Neat stat: Spurs have won 1,109 games since Duncan’s rookie year. Next closest team (Lakers) has 985 wins.

Paul Garcia

Baller RT @RaFlo64: Messina is 1-0 as an NBA coach! #spurs win 106-100. http://t.co/4oGiy2YfOn

Quixem Ramirez

Big Three+Kawhi: 87 points Other Spurs: 19 points

Paul Garcia

Sigh RT @JohnxDiaz: Ettore Messina has more wins as a head coach this season than Brett Brown. Just like everyone predicted.

Paul Garcia

Spurs outscore Pacers 29-24 in final quarter. SA now 5-0 when they score 100 or more.

Dan McCarney

Great performances from Leonard (21/13), Ginobili (28 points in 26 mins), Parker (21/6, huge 3) and Duncan (17/6).

Quixem Ramirez

Recap: Big Three and Kawhi showed up, the bench didn’t. Spurs win regardless.

Dan McCarney

Final: Spurs 106, Pacers 100. Dodge a major scare from Indiana with 18-2 run late in 4th quarter to erase 5-point deficit.

Quixem Ramirez

21 points, 13 rebounds for Kawhi Leonard. I guess you can say he’s good at this professional basketball gig.

Paul Garcia

Spurs improve to 10-4 with 106-100 win over Pacers. SA on 5-game winning streak. Manu with 21 of his 28 points in second half.

Dan McCarney

Can't say too many players are entertaining rebounders, but Leonard is one of them. Great showcase for freakish length.

Dan McCarney

ANOTHER missed FT here...

Dan McCarney

Give Green credit for slowing Stuckey down in second half. Only 6 on 2 for 7 after 16 on 7 for 13 in the 1st.

Dan McCarney

Spurs stumbling just a tiny bit down stretch here with TOs, missed FTs. Still up 7 with 26.1 seconds left. Did their damage with 18-2 run.

Quixem Ramirez

Sean Elliott, with a lukewarm sports take: “I feel like we are going to see a lot more double-doubles from Kawhi Leonard."
