Dan McCarney

Wow. Joseph hits the beautiful double-clutch reverse. That's four really nice, aggressive layups for him tonight. 14 in 19 minutes.

Dan McCarney

1:10 left. McDonald and I are discussing Reno 911.

Dan McCarney

A. Why are players fouling with 1:33 left in a pretend game? B. Why are officials calling said players for fouling?

Paul Garcia

Cotton with 6 points in the 4th, strong attacks to the rim.

Paul Garcia

Nice play by the Hawks - dribble pitch allows Mike Scott to get into the lane, then he kicks out to an open Shelvin Mack for three.

Dan McCarney

Another nice layup for young Joseph. Got the corner and showed no fear attacking Antic, others at the rim. Made the shot, and 1.

Dan McCarney

Only one more game after this one to confuse Josh Davis with Kawhi Leonard. Enjoy it while you can, Spurs fans...

Paul Garcia

No one picked up Thabo in the open court and he just dunked it with two hands with ease.

Paul Garcia

Looks like Kyle may have been cut, Will Sevening patching up his wrist right now.

Dan McCarney

Anderson hits his 2nd 3-pointer of the 4th quarter, now 5 for 9 from long range in the preseason. So that's encouraging.

Paul Garcia

Back-to-back three's for Kyle Anderson, who makes another corner bomb. Kyle's got 10 points all in seconds half.

Paul Garcia

Kyle Anderson catches the ball near his feet, launches a diving three from the corner and makes it. Kyle's got 7 points.

Paul Garcia

Bryce Cotton about to play the last 8 minutes of this game.

Paul Garcia

Never a bad moment when the AT&T Center throws in some Rush, Spirit of Radio.

Jeff McDonald

Haven't seen Kawhi Leonard since the pink eye diagnosis, but surely his peepers can't look more infected than the Coyote's.

Dan McCarney

Fans in the front row begging for free t-shirts...have you people no shame?

Dan McCarney

Rare bright spot for Spurs: Joseph with two nifty layups, 1st in halfcourt and 2nd in transition. Up to 8 points in 12 minutes.

Jeff McDonald

Canada is not in Europe, but that certainly was a Euro step, Cory Joseph.

Paul Garcia

Cory Joseph with the athletic move in the open court of the layup. Launched from about 8 feet away before his pro-hop.

Paul Garcia

Hawks offense will continue to stay efficient for Coach Bud, however, defense is one of their main concerns this year.

Paul Garcia

Before the game, Coach Bud talked about how it was nice to start preseason this year with a foundation from last season.

Dan McCarney

Getting to the point where Popovich might actually get pissed over a preseason game.

Dan McCarney

Hawks have pounded them by 29 in that span.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs were outscored 42-26 in the 3Q. Played some funky lineups, sure, but my Lord.

Paul Garcia

3Q: Preseason Spurs 74, Hawks 95. ATL pours in 42 points in the 3Q. ATL shot 67% in the third quarter.

Dan McCarney

Spurs gave up 42 points in the third quarter after 36 in the second.

Paul Garcia

Last season, Hawks ranked 1st in Field Goals assisted on at 67%. Tonight leading 95-74, Hawks have assisted on 24 of 32 makes.

Dan McCarney

End of 3: Atlanta 95, Spurs 74. Parker with 17 points to lead the Spurs, but Jeff Teague has 21 in 23 minutes. Spurs with 18 turnovers.

Dan McCarney

And they're calling loose ball fouls up in this building in a 22-point pretend game.

Dan McCarney

Damn, lead is now 22 points for the Hawks. Spurs up to 18 turnovers. Going to mail in my wrapup in their honor.

Dan McCarney

Bonner in the open court and damn everything he pulled it back out.

Paul Garcia

2:30 left until the fourth quarter and the Hawks are outscoring the Spurs 37-22 in the third quarter. SA down 90-70 #Preseason

Jeff McDonald

Atlanta has scored on 16 of 18 second-half possessions and leads by 20.

Jeff McDonald

Yes it's preseason and nothing matters, but wouldn't you like to see the Spurs look Spurs-y for a sustained stretch before Dallas shows up?

Jeff McDonald

If this were not preseason and the Spurs actually cared about winning they might want to locate Kyle Korver on the perimeter sometime soon.

Dan McCarney

Hot take: Korver can shoot. Hits his 6th 3 in 10 attempts, Hawks up 81-68.

Paul Garcia

Spurs with a lot of player movement, allows Manu to dash straight to the rim for the open made layup.

Dan McCarney

Wow, BAYNES just obliterated poor Paul Millsap trying to block his shot. Nothing malicious, but Paul needed a few secs to gather himself.

Paul Garcia

Kyle Korver's shooting form = magnificent

Dan McCarney

Spurs now trailing 76-64 after Korver's corner 3.

Jeff McDonald

We've now entered the "there's a whistle on every single possession" portion of the program.

Dan McCarney

Dave on the big screen = Spurs fans going crazy. A tradition like no other.

Paul Garcia

Jumbotron shows Patty Mills on the screen, fans go nuts. But of course, they go even crazier for David Robinson.

Paul Garcia

Both teams with 16 points so far in 3Q, Hawks lead by 5. Parker and Teague battling, Parker with 17 points, Teague 18.

Mike Monroe

Corey Robinson's Dad in the house at ATT Center again ... hey, so is Corey!

Paul Garcia

Spurs get the loose ball, Parker finds Anderson in the corner, and Kyle makes his first three of the game.

Paul Garcia

Matt Bonner checks in, seconds later he drains a three. #RedMamba

Dan McCarney

Speaking of which, Atlanta is now up 64-54, 8:31 left in the third quarter.

Paul Garcia

Boris tried to pin Teague's layup to the basket, but refs called it goaltending. Good hustle there by Boris.

Paul Garcia

Boris doin' Baris things there. Just smoothly posted Millsap for the fadeaway shot from 14 feet.

Dan McCarney

BAYNES in for Duncan to start the second half.

Jeff McDonald

Kyle Anderson makes his first appearance to start the second half.

Paul Garcia

Baynes and Diaw out there as the big men, Duncan's night likely done.

Paul Garcia

Kyle Anderson starting the second half, will play SF. He didn't play at all in first half so Beli could get some miles.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs -- 14 turnovers leading to 22 Atlanta points; Hawks -- 6 turnovers for 6 SA points.

Paul Garcia

Spurs with 7 turnovers in the second quarter for 15 ATL points. Hawks with 10 assists on 14 makes in 2Q. Teams flipped script in 2Q.

Dan McCarney

Halftime: Atlanta 53, Spurs 48. Outscored 36-23 in the second quarter. Parker has 10 to lead the Spurs, but on 9 shots.

Mike Monroe

#Hawks Kyle Korver closes out 1st half in San Antonio with long 3-ball; ATL 53, SAS 48

Paul Garcia

Kyle Korver makes the contested three to end the half. Preseason Hawks 53, Spurs 48. SA shooting 50%. Parker 10 points, Teague 14 points.

Jeff McDonald

Korver three at the buzzer, and Hawk lead 53-48 at intermission.

Dan McCarney

Ginobili now 5 for 29 in the preseason. Rusty barbecue, indeed.

Dan McCarney

Spurs now up to TO No. 14. And trailing the Hawks by two, 48-46...

Paul Garcia

Spurs with 14th turnover of the game by inbounding the ball. Daye threw it too far ahead of Parker, Parker wasn't happy with the pass.

Dan McCarney

Team them up and you have the barbarian Avengers RT @Jeff McDonald Baynes vs Antic vs Pekovic would be like the Anchorman fight

Jeff McDonald

Baynes vs Antic vs Pekovic would be like the Anchorman fight

Dan McCarney

Pop trolling us all, puts Baynes in now that Antic is back on the bench.

Dan McCarney

And then two trips later we get a gruesomely lazy pass from Parker into traffic for TO No. 11.

Dan McCarney

Just had one of our first slick four-passes-in-three-seconds sequences of the preseason. Ginobili bricked the 3, but still, nice stuff.

Jeff McDonald

Karl Lane with a nice save of an errant pass for Atlanta. He's the referee.

Dan McCarney

I cannot see the tattoos covering Antic's arms but I imagine they are images of unspeakable carnage.

Dan McCarney

David Robinson was thoroughly amused by the Coyote clubbing softballs into the crowd.

Dan McCarney

Give Antic a spiked club and Baynes a big ol broadsword and let them go at it. First one to remove a limb wins.

Dan McCarney

Pero Antic is even more terrifying in person, and even MORE terrifying still with a plastic face guard.

Dan McCarney

Austin Daye leads all Spurs with 8 points. #pretendgames

Mike Monroe

Lots of traveling calls being made in pre-season; soon enough they will all be ignored #RegularSeason

Paul Garcia

Austin Daye's shooting is on par tonight, just made his third three of the night. Last one was a release without hesitation.

Paul Garcia

Pop was serious about using tonight's game for Marco's conditioning. Beli played 9 mins in 1Q, ready to check back in soon.

Dan McCarney

Nice extra pass by Joseph on the last play of the quarter, whipping rock to Green in the corner for a wide-open 3. Textbook Spurs ball.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs lead 25-17 after 1Q. It's the first time they've won the first quarter since coming back from Europe.

Paul Garcia

1Q: Preseason Spurs 25, Hawks 17. SA moving the ball, 8 assists on 10 made baskets. All five starters scored in 1Q

Dan McCarney

Spurs up 25-17 through one quarter despite 7 TOs. Duncan with 4/7, Parker has 6 points and Boris Diaw with 5.

Jeff McDonald

Ginobili's preseason hasn't been great, but it'd look about 10 percent better if he were able to run pick and rolls with Tiago Splitter.

Paul Garcia

Austin Daye has benefited twice from Manu drawing in the defense, as Manu kicks out to him for two 3-pointers.

Paul Garcia

Cory Joseph, who sat all of Monday's game due to getting extended time vs. Heat, checks in for Parker.

Paul Garcia

Thabo takes Danny Green 1-on-1 and draws a foul with a spinning move. The ultimate #Preseason hashtag deserved there.

Jeff McDonald

Also Thabo Sefolosha in a Hawks uniform is just weird.

Paul Garcia

Solid play by Kent Bazemore. Bazmore used a pick, drove in, drew 2 defenders, then passed to Millsap for the dunk.

Jeff McDonald

Oh yeah, forgot Elton Brand was a thing

Paul Garcia

Spurs lead 17-13 over the Hawks with 3:24 left in 1Q. SA with 5 assists on 7 makes. As Danny said Monday, ball movement is getting in form

Jeff McDonald

Spurs lead 17-10 at first wave of subs. Probably the best the starters have looked this preseason, though still four turnovers.

Paul Garcia

Tony drives in, kicks to Marco, who kicks to Boris, who kicks back to Parker for the driving layup. So much passing in one play. SA 15-10

Dan McCarney

Duncan with 4 points, 7 rebounds in the first 7 minutes. Save some for the regular season, young fella.

Paul Garcia

Tony drives in, feeds Marco, who feeds Danny, who feeds Boris, who feeds Parker for the made 20-footer. So much passing on last play.

Jeff McDonald

Rebounding-wise, it helps Duncan is the tallest dude on the floor and Atlanta has missed 9 of 12 shots

Jeff McDonald

Four points, seven rebounds in the first five minutes for Old Man Duncan.

Dan McCarney

I just wish I had one good closeup picture of Leonard's crusty eye for all these blog updates.

Dan McCarney

Highlight of the game already achieved: Forced to wait in courtside tunnel while Boris arranged his extracurricular activities w/ friends.

Paul Garcia

Spurs open the game with a lot of ball movement. 7-0 run, 2 assists on 3 makes.
