HoopsHype San Antonio Spurs twitter
Hey NBA stat geeks ... any idea what the record is for most combined 3-pointers attempted in a game? Spurs-LAL firing at will.
Spurs on a 9-0 run, cutting L.A.'s lead down to oh who cares?
"Posting and toasting" -- need to figure out how to adopt this into my literary arsenal.
Patty with 7 points, 7 shots in 8 minutes.
If it's 3-point bombing night, why not Bonner? 2-team count up to 28 with 7 min. left, 1st half
Splitter just shot a semi-finger roll. Pulling out all the stops tonight.
Grizzlies lead Mavericks 29-24 after one.
Not a lot of extra passes being made tonight at the AT&T.
Grizzlies up 28-18 over Dallas as the 1st quarter winds down in Memphis. Have won 14 straight home games.
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
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.
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.
Need more proof that this game means nothing? Tiago Splitter just took a 3-pointer.
Splitter takes a corner 3 with 16 seconds on the shot clock and I don't even know what to say.
Grizzlies already up 10 in the early going.
Even in a game that absolutely does not matter, Pop will call timeout to complain about poor transition defense.
Danny Green's already squeezed off a Nick Young-esque eight shots.
It's early, but Lakers and Spurs both playing like they want to save Mike D'Antoni's job.
Whatever you set the over/under on Nick Young shots tonight, I take the over.
The only vote Pop wouldn't get would be his own.
I'll tell you this much: If COACHES got to vote for COY, Popovich would probably win unanimously this season. And maybe most seasons.
Anyway we could get the Mavs-Grizzlies game on the LightHouse? M'kay. Thanks.
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.
This could be Mike D'Antoni's final game as an NBA coach. Probably a fair assumption, no?
Can we just have a running clock for this game? I'm sure D'Antoni and Popovich would both agree to it.
Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Baynes, Splitter. Lakers: Marshall, Meeks, Johnson, Kelly, Hill.
Spurs v Lakers 8pm eastern...tune in
Matt Bonner is the only Spurs player not to start a game this season. Pop hasn't named starters yet. Seems a no-brainer.
Asked Pop what the scouting process will be tonight once playoff opponent is decided. Late night? Nope. "I'm going home," he said.
No Duncan, no Belinelli tonight. Pop legitimately says he doesn't know who he is starting and I believe him.
Belinelli, Duncan both resting tonight. Everybody else is ready to go.
Spurs barely acknowledge when they win the division or conference, much less mythical "best record" crown.
Some absolute brilliance in that last retweet.
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.
Some indication Spurs will start playoffs Sunday regardless of opponent. Nothing official yet though.
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.
Every time I glance at this Barca/Real match, somebody is falling down.
Daily Spurs first-round playoff foe update: Today, it would be Memphis. We'll know for sure by the end of tonight.
OKC's sweep of the Spurs, even with usual caveats, is more troubling than Houston's because it is part of a wider trend.
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.
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.
Don't know if I blogged well, but I definitely blogged hard today.
Specifically asked if Heard will have a chance. Strong said yes, but cautioned he doesn't know the system yet.
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.
For Sixth Man of the Year, I should have said.
Strong on Joe Bergeron: "He had some things he needed to work on. If he gets that done, he'll be back."
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.
Is this oak pollen kicking anyone else's butt like it is mine?
Worst-smelling player? Klay Thompson.
Quote of the year, "He was a little fat ass" or "The whole spurs team gave off a nice fragrance"? Tough, tough choice.
As you would expect...
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."
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."
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.'
Many don't realize what a garbage dump the West was for much of the 80s thanks to the Lakers.
Spurs made the playoffs in 1987-88 at 31-51 (!!!), but 47 wins not good enough in this season's WC.
Spurs are 2-2, winning in 99 and 03, losing in 95 and 01.
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.
Spurs have nine players averaging at least eight points. Last time that happened, results were quite different: They went 20-62 in 1996-97.
San Antonio blood moon in full effect, waiting for some supernaturals to appear hahaa
Red moon right now in San An... Very cool !!
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.
Still can't figure out how come Twitter thought I was in Atlanta earlier tonight. Feel like maybe I'm being framed for something.
Reservation at the Renaissance in downtown Phoenix, canceled.
