Jeff McDonald

Hey NBA stat geeks ... any idea what the record is for most combined 3-pointers attempted in a game? Spurs-LAL firing at will.

Dan McCarney

Spurs on a 9-0 run, cutting L.A.'s lead down to oh who cares?

Dan McCarney

"Posting and toasting" -- need to figure out how to adopt this into my literary arsenal.

Dan McCarney

Patty with 7 points, 7 shots in 8 minutes.

Mike Monroe

If it's 3-point bombing night, why not Bonner? 2-team count up to 28 with 7 min. left, 1st half

Dan McCarney

Splitter just shot a semi-finger roll. Pulling out all the stops tonight.

Dan McCarney

Grizzlies lead Mavericks 29-24 after one.

Dan McCarney

Not a lot of extra passes being made tonight at the AT&T.

Dan McCarney

Grizzlies up 28-18 over Dallas as the 1st quarter winds down in Memphis. Have won 14 straight home games.

Mike Monroe

After 1 qtr. in SA #Lakers up 33-23; teams combine to take 21 3-pointers, Spurs 3-13, Lakers 4-8

Jeff McDonald

Lakers lead Spurs 33-23 after 1Q in which teams combine for 21 3-pt tries. James Naismith resurrected himself, just so he could hang himself

Jeff McDonald

If the Spurs cared about winning this game (and they don't), I'd suggest not getting into a pick-up-game with team full of pick-up gamers.

Jeff McDonald

This almost reminds me of the last game of Little League when everybody gets to play out of position and the fat kid plays shortstop.

Dan McCarney

Need more proof that this game means nothing? Tiago Splitter just took a 3-pointer.

Jeff McDonald

Splitter takes a corner 3 with 16 seconds on the shot clock and I don't even know what to say.

Dan McCarney

Grizzlies already up 10 in the early going.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs and #Lakers have jacked up 14 3p-pointers in 1st 5:40 at ATT Center ... extrapolation: 113 for the game?

Jeff McDonald

Even in a game that absolutely does not matter, Pop will call timeout to complain about poor transition defense.

Jeff McDonald

Danny Green's already squeezed off a Nick Young-esque eight shots.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs using thier 30th differnet starting lineup of season vs. #Lakers : Parker, Green, Splitter, Leonard, Green.

Jeff McDonald

It's early, but Lakers and Spurs both playing like they want to save Mike D'Antoni's job.

Jeff McDonald

Whatever you set the over/under on Nick Young shots tonight, I take the over.

Jeff McDonald

The only vote Pop wouldn't get would be his own.

Jeff McDonald

I'll tell you this much: If COACHES got to vote for COY, Popovich would probably win unanimously this season. And maybe most seasons.

Jeff McDonald

Anyway we could get the Mavs-Grizzlies game on the LightHouse? M'kay. Thanks.

Jeff McDonald

Since I've been asked: Either Pop should be COY, or the Spurs should have players all over end-of-the-year ballots. Didn't win 62 by magic.

Jeff McDonald

This could be Mike D'Antoni's final game as an NBA coach. Probably a fair assumption, no?

Jeff McDonald

Can we just have a running clock for this game? I'm sure D'Antoni and Popovich would both agree to it.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Baynes, Splitter. Lakers: Marshall, Meeks, Johnson, Kelly, Hill.

Danny Green

Spurs v Lakers 8pm eastern...tune in

Jeff McDonald

Matt Bonner is the only Spurs player not to start a game this season. Pop hasn't named starters yet. Seems a no-brainer.

Jeff McDonald

Asked Pop what the scouting process will be tonight once playoff opponent is decided. Late night? Nope. "I'm going home," he said.

Jeff McDonald

No Duncan, no Belinelli tonight. Pop legitimately says he doesn't know who he is starting and I believe him.

Dan McCarney

Belinelli, Duncan both resting tonight. Everybody else is ready to go.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs barely acknowledge when they win the division or conference, much less mythical "best record" crown.

Jeff McDonald

Some absolute brilliance in that last retweet.

Jeff McDonald

AGAIN, Memphis is 2-12 vs. Spurs since 2011 playoffs. Dallas has lost nine straight vs. Spurs. Both will take (albeit slim) chances w/OKC.

Mike Monroe

Reiterating: #Spurs playoff opener vs. Mavs or Griz is noon CDT at AT&T Center on Sunday

Mike Monroe

#Spurs will open playoffs on Sunday at 1 p.m. on TNT vs. Mavs or Grizzlies.

Jeff McDonald

Some indication Spurs will start playoffs Sunday regardless of opponent. Nothing official yet though.

Jeff McDonald

Expect Dallas and Memphis to play tonight like Game 7. As unenviable as 1st-round date w/ OKC is, both highly motivated to avoid Spurs.

Dan McCarney

Every time I glance at this Barca/Real match, somebody is falling down.

Dan McCarney

SI's @Ben Golliver had to create a new level on the standard grading curve for the Spurs. nba.si.com/2014/04/16/nba…

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."

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.

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.
