Jeff McDonald

Spurs outscored Sacramento 14-4 in final 5:16 of quarter to push lead into double digits.

Dan McCarney

Spurs opponents (Suns, Kings) shooting 30.4 percent over the past six quarters. That's OK.

Paul Garcia

Half: Spurs 54, Kings 38. Leonard 19 points (8/9 FG). SA shoots 53%, SAC 32%. SAC 20-12 edge in paint. Both teams 23 combined TOs.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs lead 54-38 after dominating close to 2Q. Leonard with 19, which (I believe) is the highest-scoring half of his career.

Jeff McDonald

Rudy gets t'eed up, and is still allowed a couple more F-Bombs w/o incurring a second. Joey would have had him deported.

Paul Garcia

Give Kawhi Leonard 19 first half points. Leonard shooting 8/9 from field, 2/3 from three.

Paul Garcia

The Spurs currently have their largest lead of the night - 12 points.

Paul Garcia

Tim Duncan: Down, set, go! Manu catches the Hail Mary on the other end of the court for the and-1 opp.

Jeff McDonald

This game's kind of turned into rugby, Spurs have extended lead to 45-36 with 3:14 left in first half.

Dan McCarney

Spurs have their largest lead at 9 points. Kings shooting just 36 points. Leonard continues to dominate with 16 points in 17 minutes.

Jeff McDonald

Whatever Spurs were supposed to be running on turnover that led to Gay breakout dunk, Duncan didn't do it.

Jeff McDonald

Pop asking Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili to remove their heads from a place nobody's head should ever be.

Paul Garcia

16 points on 7/8 shooting with 3 boards for Kawhi Leonard now in 15 minutes.

Jeff McDonald

Kawhi's doing that thing where he is by far the best player, on either team, on both ends.

Dan McCarney

Leonard has 14 points on 7 shots, with 2 steals and 1 block.

Paul Garcia

That last bounce pass by Kawhi tho...

Dan McCarney

Monster sequence for Leonard. Stuffs Gay jumper -- which is REALLY hard to do -- grabs offensive board at other end, goes up for the dunk.

Jeff McDonald

He heard whatever Jason Thompson said though

Jeff McDonald

Only way Boogie didn't get T'd up there is because James Capers wasn't listening to what he sauid

Dan McCarney

Cousins commits his third foul on the offensive end. Sits with 7 points on 3-for-8 shooting.

Dan McCarney

Spurs on an 11-2 run, back up by 6 midway through 2nd Q.

Dan McCarney

Tony Parker made a jump shot. That is all.

Paul Garcia

With that last Thompson dunk off a roll, the Kings are now outscoring the Spurs 16-4 in the paint thus far.

Dan McCarney

I would flat turn down any invitation to participate in an in-game contest thingy. I couldn't handle the humiliation.

Paul Garcia

1Q: Spurs 26, Kings 27. Kawhi 11 points (5/5 FG). SA shot 50%, SAC 40%. Both teams with 11 combined turnovers. SAC 12-4 in paint.

Jeff McDonald

Kings have 10 second-chance points in the first quarter, which is a lot and is the difference.

Jeff McDonald

After nice little start, Spurs trail 27-26 heading to 2Q.

Dan McCarney

The Kings are now winning, 21-20, after Williams' 3.

Jeff McDonald

Baynes vs. Cousins = somebody 'bout to die

Paul Garcia

After their 11-2 start, the Spurs have been outscored 16-7 by the Kings. Game knotted at 18. SA shooting 53%, SAC 42%.

Dan McCarney

That 11-2 lead? Gone. Sacramento on 16-7 run with a FT to come when play resumes. Manu, Boris in energetic discussion on way to bench.

Jeff McDonald

Splitter rejoined starting lineup in Sacramento in order to defend Cousins (who ultimately didn't play). We're seeing why tonight.

Dan McCarney

Parker subbed out with 4 pts on 2 for 5. Being aggressive but still obviously lacking a bunch of stuff: Confidence, first step, touch.

Dan McCarney

Tim threw an alley-oop to Green. It went as you'd expect.

Mike Monroe

Tiago Splitter just blocked a Boogie Cousins dunk attempt and started fast break that ran #Spurs early lead on #Kings to 11-2

Paul Garcia

Spurs are shooting 5/8 to start with 11 points, Kings are 1/8 in their first 8 possessions. 1/5 shooting, 3 turnovers for SAC.

Paul Garcia

Kawhi came in averaging 19.5 points in his last 2 games, well he has 7 early in the first quarter. SA leads 11-2.

Dan McCarney

The long arm of Tim Duncan.

Dan McCarney

Great start for Kawhi Leonard, drills the 3 to give him 7 in the first 3 minutes of action.

Jeff McDonald

Before tip, Will Sevening wrapping Duncan's left forearm heavy in athletic tape. Not sure why.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Duncan, Splitter. Kings: McCallum, McLemore, Gay, Thompson, Cousins.

Dan McCarney

Been a while...leonard/pepperoni

Paul Garcia

Looks like Boogie will indeed play tonight. Kings to start McCallum, McLemore, Gay, Thompson & Cousins.

Jeff McDonald

Only two active NBA coaches have won 1,000 games. Both of them are in the AT&T Center tonight.

Jeff McDonald

Same starters tonight for Spurs for third game in a row. Pop seeking lineup/rotation consistency over final month and a half.

Dan McCarney

Unfortunately, did not get to ask him about the latest trailer for Avengers 2. Will try Tim after the game...

Dan McCarney

Also cited injuries, lack of lineup consistency, but that was an issue in each of the past two seasons as well, and they overcame.

Dan McCarney

Pop on why ball movement has lacked: "Pressing, doing things on their own a little bit, wanting it too much, instead of trusting teammates."

Dan McCarney

Even a championship Game 7?!? "Count me out. Life is too short."

Dan McCarney

Pop, on spacing out schedule at the cost of playing into July: "I will not come to work in July. If there's a game in July, count me out."

Dan McCarney

Pop, if he prefers FIBA to go back to amateur play: "I wish we didn't have cell phones and 3-point shots, but that's not going to happen."

Paul Garcia

Pop says same starters tonight vs. The Kings. Parker, Green, Kawhi, Duncan and Splitter.

Paul Garcia

The Spurs begin their March schedule tonight. 15 games in 31 days, 9 vs. playoff level teams, 2 back-to-back sets.

Paul Garcia

Obligatory the AT&T Center still smells like the Rodeo tweet.

Dan McCarney

Let's just say the ATT Center is even less glamorous post rodeo. #poopmud

The transition give-and-go between Faried and Ty Lawson was something nice.

I’ve never felt farther away from the court during a game than I do right now watching the Denver broadcast on Altitude.

How many tweets would it take to fit the entire Bucks starting lineup? Three?

Andrew A. McNeill

No question. RT @MrGordian: The Rockets are composed entirely of heels. Far and away the most unlikeable team in the league.

Jeff McDonald

Was going to be a pretty rough b2b for Kings, travel-wise. Getting up 40+ at MSG tonight helps a bit. Face Spurs tomorrow.

Andrew A. McNeill

Listening to Vince Carter join the broadcast booth in Memphis right now and it’s pretty clear how his post-playing career will unfold.

Andrew A. McNeill

Good to see Andrea Bargnani back in the lineup. I think is still my most popular tweet: twitter.com/andrewamcneill…

Andrew A. McNeill

The Kings just had Jason Thompson and DeMarcus Cousins bring the ball up off a DREB. In related news, they’re playing the Knicks.

Paul Garcia

The Cavs are 18-5 since LeBron returned and they are up 18 on Boston in the 2Q, where LeBron already has 17 PTS.

Paul Garcia

Since taking 2 weeks off to rest & recover, LeBron James has averaged 27.6 PTS (49% FG), 6.7 AST, 6.5 REB & 1.9 STLs.

Mike Finger

It was. But make it sound like Marriott points, and you'll get journalists' attention. RT @aubreyrbloom: how was that not already a thing?

Mike Finger

I can't believe that a college program giving ticket priority to its biggest donors is national news.
