Spurs notebook: First-round scouting report shrinks to Dallas, Memphis expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a…

Jeff McDonald

Nothing has impressed Pop more this season than Spurs' ability to get over Finals heartbreak, writes @Mike Monroe expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a…

Jeff McDonald

Daily Spurs first-round playoff foe update: Today, it would be Memphis. We'll know for sure by the end of tonight.

Dan McCarney

At long last, my final scouting report of the regular season, starring none other than Swaggy P #spursnation #spurs blog.mysanantonio.com/spursnation/20…

Jeff McDonald

Plus, though I'm not as big a Portland homer as @Matthew_Tynan, not 100% convinced Rockets get by Blazers. HCA may save them.

Jeff McDonald

OKC's sweep of the Spurs, even with usual caveats, is more troubling than Houston's because it is part of a wider trend.

Jeff McDonald

Can't wait to see the "We Swept The Spurs in the Regular Season" banner in the Toyota Center next season. Lord knows they've got room.

Jeff McDonald

Again, not to say Spurs wouldn't have hands full with Rockets, if it comes to that. Better to concentrate of getting by Portland first.

Dan McCarney

Don't know if I blogged well, but I definitely blogged hard today.

Mike Finger

Specifically asked if Heard will have a chance. Strong said yes, but cautioned he doesn't know the system yet.

Mike Finger

I asked Strong if a QB who doesn't get here until summer can start the season opener. He asked if I had a secret guy for him.

Dan McCarney

For Sixth Man of the Year, I should have said.

Dan McCarney

Another measure of Spurs depth: Four diff. players got votes in ESPN Forecast : Ginobili, Belinelli, Diaw, Green (?) espn.go.com/nba/story/_/pa…

Mike Finger

Strong on Joe Bergeron: "He had some things he needed to work on. If he gets that done, he'll be back."

Mike Finger

Charlie Strong had lunch with Bill Clinton and dinner with George W Bush last week. Meanwhile, Texas fans just care if he met Max Wittek.

Dan McCarney

Is this oak pollen kicking anyone else's butt like it is mine?

Dan McCarney

Worst-smelling player? Klay Thompson.

Dan McCarney

Quote of the year, "He was a little fat ass" or "The whole spurs team gave off a nice fragrance"? Tough, tough choice.

Dan McCarney

As you would expect...

Dan McCarney

The Suns ballboy who did the AMA cited Belinelli as the best-smelling player in the NBA. "The whole spurs team gave off a nice fragrance."

Dan McCarney

It's more stressful being a newspaper reporter than working in a prison careercast.com/content/top-20…

Boris Diaw

The winner for #frogging is @melanicz ! Thanks everybody else and enjoy the last game of the regular season fans!

Jeff McDonald

As expected, NBA has rescinded the technical foul Tony Brothers gave Tim Duncan last night, reports @Mike Monroe.

Mike Monroe

NBA rescinds Tim Duncan's technical in last night's #Spurs-#Rockets game; refs had admitted mistake to Popovich during game.

Dan McCarney

Also sounds like a Spurs lifer: "I'm incredibly happy where I am. If (they fire me), then I'll have to worry about where I go next."

Dan McCarney

Buford on running an NBA team, via @Zach Lowe podcast: "Tim runs it. We all just work for Tim." espn.go.com/espnradio/gran…

Mike Monroe

More Popovich on #Spurs resiliency: 'They came back, put it aside and have done what they've done. I think that's pretty impressive.'

Mike Monroe

More Pop, on SAS resiliency: 'I thought they were amazing after G 6 to play as hard as they did in G 7; lot of teams would have given in.'

Mike Monroe

Popovich, on #Spurs mental grit: 'They've competed and gotten themselves in this position after a devastating loss in The Finals last year.'

Mike Monroe

What impresses #Popovich most about his team's remarkable season? Moving on from devastating Finals loss bit.ly/1kY869H

Dan McCarney

Many don't realize what a garbage dump the West was for much of the 80s thanks to the Lakers.

Dan McCarney

Spurs made the playoffs in 1987-88 at 31-51 (!!!), but 47 wins not good enough in this season's WC.

Dan McCarney

Spurs are 2-2, winning in 99 and 03, losing in 95 and 01.

Dan McCarney

Only 15 of 38 teams with league's best record have won the title since the ABA/NBA merger. But there are no upsets in the NBA.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs have nine players averaging at least eight points. Last time that happened, results were quite different: They went 20-62 in 1996-97.

Jeff McDonald

Notebook: Spurs will finish regular season with plan Popovich calls "controlled rest" expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a…

Jeff McDonald

ICYMI: Last night in Houston, Spurs played a preseason game in April and nearly won anyway expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a…

Boris Diaw

Few hours before the end of the #frogging contest for tomorrow game tickets. Let's go fans!

Mike Monroe

When is reg. season game an exhibition? @Jeff McDonald has the answer expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a…

Mike Monroe

Popovich tells @Jeff McDonald he'll give 'controlled rest' to #Spurs key players expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a…

Aron Baynes

San Antonio blood moon in full effect, waiting for some supernaturals to appear hahaa

Aron Baynes

Red moon right now in San An... Very cool !!

Jeff McDonald

Here's a fun fact I just came across: At 16.8 ppg, Tony Parker is set to become the lowest-scoring leading scorer in Spurs history.

Tony Parker

Spurs notebook: 'Controlled rest' will set the stage, Popovich says expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a…

Jeff McDonald

Still can't figure out how come Twitter thought I was in Atlanta earlier tonight. Feel like maybe I'm being framed for something.

Dan McCarney

Spurs' first-round opponent down to two candidates, Memphis or Dallas #spurs #spursnation blog.mysanantonio.com/spursnation/20…

Jeff McDonald

About last night, tonight: Spurs in tune-up mode, make Rockets work for fourth seed. expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a…

Jeff McDonald

Reservation at the Renaissance in downtown Phoenix, canceled.

Jeff McDonald

Pop grumbled before tonight's game about having to prepare for three different potential playoff foes. Now it's down to 2: Dallas or Memphis

Jeff McDonald

Phoenix, meanwhile, eliminated from playoff contention. Spurs staffers can burn their scouting reports on Suns.

Jeff McDonald

Wednesday in Memphis, it's Grizzlies vs. Mavericks. Loser plays the Spurs in the first round.

Dan McCarney

Man's move, Marc Gasol.

Dan McCarney

Houston 104, Spurs 94: A preseason game in April #spurs #spursnation blog.mysanantonio.com/spursnation/20…

Jeff McDonald

Tim Duncan on his tech, which will almost surely be revoked: "There was no intent there. I was falling down."

Jeff McDonald

Dwight on the Spurs: "It doesn't matter who is on the floor, starters, the second unit, third unit. Those guys can still play basketball."

Jeff McDonald

Duncan echoed that. "Exactly what we wanted. A good workout, good game, good situations. A perfect situation for us, and no one got hurt."

Jeff McDonald

Pop: "It was a good night. We got the minutes we wanted to get for certain guys, got a lot of guys extra minutes and nobody got hurt."

Dan McCarney

Six-point game in Phoenix...

Dan McCarney

Your Spurs... MT @Boris Diaw Don't forget to watch tonight one of the rarest lunar event instagram.com/p/my1TeUDI8y/

Boris Diaw

Les insomniaques N'oubliez pas de regarder maintenant un des evenement lunaire les plus rares #lunedesang #frogging http://t.co/MfOgw6Dwvb

Boris Diaw

Don't forget to watch tonight one of the rarest lunar event, boom to the #bloodmoon from midnight to… instagram.com/p/my1TeUDI8y/

Dan McCarney

Suns look terrible. Grizzlies double them up late in the first quarter.

Jeff McDonald

Tony Parker spent end of game icing down in the locker room, Pop said. No new injury. No concern.

Jeff McDonald

Popovich says ref Tony Brothers told him the technical he called on Tim Duncan was a mistake. Sounds like it may be rescinded.

Mike Monroe

#Rockets now 3-0 vs. #Spurs, 1-0 vs. SortaSpurs. Rox secure No. 4 seed in West.

Jeff McDonald

Rockets win 104-98, get West's fourth seed. Spurs get one day closer to playing in a game that matters.

Jeff McDonald

Looking like the Rockets are going to hold off some of the Spurs, clinch No. 4 seed.

Jeff McDonald

Pop's going back to Damion James after Austin Daye misses contested jumper, fouls Harden on a 3.

Dan McCarney

Big mistake there. Know it's an offensive rebound, but gotta foul Howard under the rim.

Dan McCarney

This is probably the Spurs' 123nd best lineup making this push.

Jeff McDonald

Some of the Spurs lead 82-80 after Belinelli jumper.

Mike Monroe

Sorta #Spurs playing well in 4th against real #Rockets; up 82-80 with 7:30 left

Jeff McDonald

Within one for a second.

Jeff McDonald

Some of the Spurs within 3.

Dan McCarney

(Rolls, to you and me)

Dan McCarney

Did I hear that ad correctly? Gold'n Chick sells something called "yeast balls"?

Jeff McDonald

Give some of the Spurs a modicum of credit. Going to make Houston work for that fourth seed. Rox up 76-68 heading to 4Q.

Dan McCarney

Boris Diaw air balls a hook shot from 5 feet. Hence, summing up my JV basketball career.

Jeff McDonald

I mean, that is four fouls on Harden. Could maybe be significant.

Dan McCarney

Good night, Tim Duncan.

Jeff McDonald

Duncan takes a seat right at 30 minutes. Going to guess that's the last we'll see of him tonight.

Jeff McDonald

Whatever happened to get Harden isolated on Duncan, the Spurs probably never want to happen again. Although Rox still come away w/no points.

Dan McCarney

Ooof, Howard really clocked Ginobili with his off arm. T'd up.

Jeff McDonald

Manu took a shot in the chops from Dwight Howard. Looked inadvertent, but Dwight teed up anyway.

Dan McCarney

Tony does have exquisite eyebrows.

Jeff McDonald

Toyota Center P.A. guy: http://t.co/A0NDLaQbbb

Dan McCarney

My entire adulthood, reduced to one tweet MT @TortiousTroll lazy and alone

Dan McCarney

Go figure: No Green or Leonard, and Spurs are defending Harden (9 pts, 2 for 8) better than they ever have since he joined the Rockets.

Mike Monroe

I'm setting over-under on Duncan 2nd half minutes at 7 ... over or under?

Dan McCarney

Made me laugh MT @DukeOfBexar "Sinatra was a man - no, he was THE man. And he liked the McDonald's of whiskey watered down like a noob."

Mike Finger
