HoopsHype San Antonio Spurs twitter
Joseph on Spurs skid: "We don't have to go into a deep panic. It's still early in the season." Also said something about cinching shorts up.
No guarantee Pop tells us if Parker's going to play at his pregame presser later - he might say it's a game-time decision.
Leonard and Mills both still out, but Parker is apparently a game-time decision for LAC tonight with his upgrade to questionable.
Kawhi Leonard (right hand) remains out, as does Patty Mills. Parker (hamstring) upgraded to questionable.
The Spurs announce Tony Parker is now questionable to play tonight vs. the Clippers.
But, Atlanta Josh Smith and Detroit Josh Smith are a little different players now.
Starting 5 for Kings w/ Smith: Collison, McLemore, Gay, Smith, Boogie. W/ Rockets: Beverley, Harden, Ariza, Smith, Dwight
For Smith, it would look like he'd easily have a starting PF job in either Sacto or Houston. In Dallas, he'd have to come off the bench.
What you guys think of these Christmas Day kicks
Pau Gasol took his teammate to the opera, which furthers proves that he would have been the perfect Spur.
If I had a dollar for every time someone said the Spurs are nearing their end, I could buy the Clippers.
"The Spurs are dead" narrative has to be the most pointless narrative in professional sports.
The Spurs aren't the Spurs yet. We also haven't seen the full Spurs in uniform. Until we do, take their performance with some grains of salt
Kobe went 8 for 30 tonight. Holy...
People said the Spurs were dead in 2009. And 2010. And 2011. And 2012. And 2013. WHY HAVEN'T PEOPLE LEARNED THEIR LESSON YET?!
There's 82 games for a reason. That's plenty of time to sort out this mess and for everything to even out.
NOPE NOPE NOPE NOPE http://t.co/45rDuUZczU
My LA ppl killing me on insta
Decisions, decisions Knicks fans http://t.co/MWwm2BmIQe
New game, same injury report for Spurs: Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker and Patty Mills out for Monday against Clippers.
...injuries. There's not a timetable for their return, could be sooner or later. It's tough to build rotations if you don't know.
As Pop said the other night, at least when you know someone's out for 3 months, you can still build a rotation. With the Parker/Kawhi...
Expect a very heavy 4-Down attack once more for Tim Duncan, who has been the focal point of the offense. He's averaging 16.6 FGA this month
In December, the Spurs' Big 3 has consisted of Tim Duncan (19.1 points), Danny Green (15.1 points) and Manu Ginobili (15.1 points).
Correction, it'll be Kawhi's 6th game that he misses this month, not 7th.
Tony Parker will have missed 9 games thus far in December after tomorrow. Kawhi Leonard will have missed 7 this month.
Leonard (hand), Parker (hamstring), Mills (shoulder) ruled out against Clippers. Spurs is in the midst of a four-game losing streak.
Same injuries for the three of them: Leonard (right hand), Parker (left hamstring) and Mills (right shoulder).
The Spurs announce Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard, and Patty Mills will all be out tomorrow vs. Clippers.
Elite scorers have the turn around jumper in their arsenal. Matt Bonner has the turnaround one-handed jump hook.
reliable 3-point shooters in Dirk, Parsons and Jefferson.
In the second, also looks like San Antonio threw out some 2-3 zone action defensively. Smart strategy since Dallas only has three...
their defensive isn't in a rhythm and it's usable to throw off the flow of their opponent on offense.
Also looks like the Spurs once more ran a lot of their 1-3-1 Defensive set. As Austin Daye recently told me, it's a set to use when..
Dirk shoots 3-pointers like he's wide open. Took 1 in the 2Q with a man right under him. With the height, shot release, Dirk might see open
Solid score by Kyle Anderson in the first quarter last night: Right hand dribble behind the back to left, then fading jumper.
Spurs must win at least 2 of next 5 games to avoid first losing December since 1996-97, which was also their last December w/o Tim Duncan.
It's almost like he was saying UT beating the Aggies made it extra-special. But we all know better.
16 different starting lineups in their first 28 games pretty much explains the Spurs' 17-11 start. Creating consistency & rhythm is tough
Has medical technology advanced far enough to remove a bulging dick in your back? Asking for Philip Rivers.
Most shocking line in that story: "Benson was the second-best running back in Texas history."
I hate fantasy football.
Was standing at the free throw line yesterday with Rondo 2 my left n Dirk to my right and had 1 of those "wow im really in the NBA" moments.
The legs are a bit sore today after running this last night: http://t.co/xqBDcMxfYS
From yesterday: They say you learn something new everyday, I learned this product exists yesterday. http://t.co/EfLLCOdgJZ
Just saw the box score from last night, turns out Danny Green & Tiago Splitter also got the night off - deserved. Will re-watch game later.
In this West, "Meh, nothing matters at all in December" is as erroneous a response to Spurs' struggles as "OMG the sky is falling."
Cory Joseph pointed out that he played 84 minutes in two days. The word he used to describe it, without irony: "Lovely."
Pop, on what he told players at end of such a harrowing, heartbreaking week: "We have a day off tomorrow and shootaround Monday morning."
Fun fact: Babies born five days ago have never experienced a Spurs win in their lifetime.
The Spurs have had two losing streaks of 4+ games in the last four seasons. The Knicks have had three 4+ game losing streaks this season.
The Spurs dropped their fourth consecutive game for the first time since March 2011.
Ellis, again. Up to 36 points, has scored 11 of Dallas' last 13. Totally dominating the stretch run.
Only took the Mavericks 46 plus minutes, at home, but they just might have put the Spurs down for good. Up 4, 1:29 left.
Ellis just taking over.
Ellis ties 'er up with the corner 3.
Belinelli converts the three-point play, Spurs up 89-86 with less than 4 mins left.
