Fantastical 2 looks slick
In their last 6 games, the Spurs are averaging 26.7 assists per game. 7 players are averaging 2.7-4.5 dimes during that stretch.
Duncan has played in 43 straight games dating back to Dec. 20. That's fairly remarkable given his age and Popovich's predilection for rest.
Tiago Splitter on Boris Diaw's recent play: "We Boris is like that, the Spurs are another team."
Parker on Diaw playing well: "He is like another point guard out there. He can create a lot of offense."
Carlisle: "We held them to 94 points, which is a good defensive game for us, but we couldn't throw it in the ocean. They made it tough"
Splitter sums up tonight's game: "They did another run, like in Dallas, then Pop called timeout and got on us. Then we changed totally."
Boris Diaw's last 6 games: 15.0 points (59% shooting, 46% 3PT), 4.2 boards, 2.7 assists
That Easter game is shaping up to be good one on paper between Golden State and San Antonio.
While the Spurs are rolling right now, the Dubs are too. GSW are 13-2 in their last 15 games & winning by 13.1 PPG during that stretch.
The Spurs' last 15 games (12-3). Offense 112.6 PP/100 (1st) Defense 98.5 (5th) SA is winning by 13.7 PPG during that stretch.
More Manu, on the Spurs' once mighty but now inconsistent bench: http://t.co/g9P9SYLOHm
Another example why Ginobili is one of the best interviews in the NBA. On Boris Diaw's recent hot streak: http://t.co/emPoVnicM9
Merci les insomniaques pour votre soutien. Bon match de l'équipe ce soir avec une victoire importante pour le moral et les playoffs ! 🌙
For the most part, Tony Parker thought the Spurs' shots just weren't falling in the 3Q, but glad defense stuck through.
Tiago on 3Q (2/2): "I know it's not good, but it's something that happens. We've got to work on it."
Tiago on the 3Q (1/2): "I think when you're winning by 20 or 21, you just feel good & relax a little bit."
The Tao of Pop: "When players play well, it helps you win."
1 / 2 of the infamous Ginobili twins in their trademark jammies. W/ sneakers of course. http://t.co/PKJ2Ov1y8c
Back to back games the Spurs tally 28 assists and Boris ends with 19 points in both.
Final: Spurs 94, Dallas 76. Diaw leads five Spurs in double-figs with 19 points. Dallas shoots 37.8 pct, leading scorers have just 10 pts.
The Spurs improve to 46-26 with a 94-76 victory over the Mavs. Boris Diaw 19 points in back-to-back games. Green 14 points. DAL 15 pts in 4Q
Reeking of equal parts bourbon and vomit, the world's loudest Spurs fans have apparently left the building.
Finishing sked: MEM @ MIA @ ORL DEN GS @ OKC HOU @ HOU PHX @ NO
2:29 left now and the Red Rocket checks in and scores. SA back up by 21, matching their largest lead of the night.
21-point game now. Spurs about to win their 12th game in the past 15, have had a double-digit lead in all of them.
Boris has been great since last week's trip to Milwaukee. Must have been the brats?
19 point game for Spurs with 3:05 left. The Spurs are outscoring DAL 20-9 in this quarter so far...
Parker hits mid-range jumper, and the Spurs lead by 19 with 3:05 to go.
Unfortunately, we'll never see the officiating review on that call. But I think it was wrong.
Full rage at the AT&T after questionable offensive foul on Leonard.
Both of Kawhi Leonard's personal fouls have been offensive fouls. Fans not happy and Pop's not happy both times.
19 on 8 for 11 for our fave portly Frenchman.
Diaw's last 6 games: 1) 18 points 2) 9 points 3) 17 points 4) 8 points 5) 19 points 6) 19 points The Bobo
Another unorthodox but lovely move from Boris. Scoots baseline under the rim, takes fadeaway J on the other side -- swish.
Diaw with 19 points again. That's back-to-back games with 19 points for him. He had 19 vs. OKC
Solid bounce-back here from Los Spurs. Back up 17 with two FTs coming for Leonard. Less than 7 mins to go.
Bobo pulling everything out of his not inconsiderable bag of tricks tonight. He's got 17 points on 7 for 10, 3 asts, 3 rebs.
Here comes the Bobo Round 2? Boris Diaw has now scored 17-19 points in 4 of his last 6 games.
Took Leonard until the fourth quarter to pick up his first steal.
Spurs' lead is back up to 15 after the Green jumper. Green has 14 points.
Green floater puts Spurs back up by 15.
Spurs basically had Dirk in a double-armlock... then he gets called for the foul. German wasn't happy.
Boris draws offensive foul from Nowitzki, as well as a few choice curse words.
Here comes the Bobo? Including tonight, Boris Diaw has scored between 15-19 points in 4 of his last 6 games.
Where would the Spurs be tonight without Boris Diaw?
15 points for Boris to lead the Spurs in scoring. Diaw is shooting 3/4 from the outside. Of course...
The Spurs shot 26% in the 3Q, DAL outscored SA 8-2 in the paint. Green scored 6 of his 12 in the 3Q.
3Q: Spurs 69, Mavs 61. SA shooting 42%, DAL 39%. DAL took 3Q 20-15. Green/Diaw 12 points each, Kawhi 11 points, Parker 10 points.
Green hits his 4th 3 just before the buzzer, Spurs lead 69-61 entering the fourth. Started to pick it up a bit near the end of the quarter.
1:26 left in the 3Q and Manu finds Tiago ahead of the defense for a layup. Spurs lead 66-59. DAL 18-12 3Q points.
Spurs were a machine in 1st half. Now struggling to make entry passes.
Now Green makes a corner three, Spurs' lead back up to 8. Green has 9 points while shooting 3/7 from distance.
Green with his third 3...
He had been 0 for 5.
Mills hits 3 and lets out a huge FINALLY fist pump. Man, that had to feel good, and relieving. Spurs 61, Dallas 54.
Patrick breaks his shooting slump by sinking an open three after a Parsonns miss. SA back by 7. Those shooting percentages were dropping
And it gets even worse for Mills as he air balls a floater.
Parker's foul trouble obviously a huge factor, but Spurs have a grand total of 4 points in more than 7 minutes in the third quarter.
After putting up 11 points on the OKC bench, Patrick is 0/4 tonight. His last three was an open air ball three pointer.
WIDE open 3 for Mills with a chance to grab a little momentum back...air ball. Just has not been Patty's year.
Joseph had his chance. Now it's Mills, with Green in for Leonard as well. Spurs lead by just 4...
23-6 run by Dallas going back to 2Q, it's a 4 point game.
Patrick will check in soon.
From the 3:30 mark in the 2Q, when SA led by 21, the Spurs have been outscored 21-6 by Dallas.
Rondo sets up Parsons perfectly in the corner for three. Spurs' 21 point lead down to 6 with 8 minutes left in the 3Q.
Parsons drills the corner 3 off a drive-and-kick from Rondo. What had been a 21-point lead is down to 6. Timeout, Spurs.
Solution to Spurs' 3Q lulls: No more halftime cocktails and back rubs.
Parker sits with his 4th foul.
After scoring the Spurs' last two baskets, Parker (10 points) has to go to the bench with 4 fouls. Cojo minutes here.
Glorious pass from Dirk. Hits Rondo to the rim, and 1. Spurs lead down to 8 early in the third quarter.
21 point lead for SA down to 8.
Spurs had a 21-point lead until fans started booing RJ. Maybe it's karma ...
I know somebody who knows somebody who, in their 60s, has never had a chocolate chip cookie. I find this to be absolutely astounding.
RJ's really the only ex Spur that gets booed in this building. They didn't boo Michael Finley, and he strong-armed his way to Boston.
Pop cornered Eli Roe before heading to locker room to try to figure out how come he got a tech. Agreed to disagree it appeared.
Spurs’ defense holding Mavs to 39% shooting with 8 turnovers. Ellis 8 points. The Spurs’ largest lead has been 21 points.
Half: Spurs 54, Mavs 41. SA is shooting 51% with 16 assists on 22 makes, but have 7 TOs. Diaw 12 points, Kawhi 11 points.
Normally when a guy gets booed, it's because he forced his way out of town or gave everybody the finger on his way out. Seems weird to me.
Pop still chewing some ear before he heads to the locker room.
Poor end to the half for Spurs, who give up transition layup to Ellis just before the buzzer. Still lead 54-41 after a fairly dominant 2 Qs.
