Spurs are an 8-point favorite tonight vs. Wolves. Minny scores 102.2 PP/100 (ranked 21st), but give up 110.1 PP/100 (29th) each game.
Texas issues statement at 12:30 ET saying, "At this time, Isaiah Taylor is still being evaluated." I hope they're not watching him sleep.
The best sentence in the English language: "Cookies will be distributed in the press box.” It’s not even close.
If the Bobcats win this game, this will be their first victory in program history without rolls in the press box. This is unprecedented.
Meanwhile, Kansas State is dealing a significant (but not fatal!) blow to Texas' Big 12 football championship hopes.
Taylor was the biggest reason why Texas made such a leap last year, and he's still the key to making it work. UT needs his wrist to be OK.
I was totally going to start Latavius Murray in my fantasy league, assuming I had heard of him.
You should see the 300 recruits rated higher than Isaiah Taylor a couple of years ago.
Sounds like a decent chance Marco Belinelli (groin) plays tomorrow if all goes well at shootaround. Officially listed as questionable.
Boris Diaw's 39 minutes last night were the most he has logged in a game since joining the Spurs.
Marco Belinelli (groin) is now up to questionable for Friday in MIN. Matt Bonner (upset tummy) also questionable. Splitter, Mills are out.
Belinelli's injury is right groin strain, Bonner stomach virus, Splitter right calf, and Mills right shoulder.
From Spurs: Marco Belinelli, Matt Bonner are "questionable" for Wolves game tomorrow. Splitter, Mills still out.
Belinelli, Bonner listed as questionable for tmw against T-Wolves. Splitter, Mills out.
I miss my guy Paul Kim. Man aint been the same since he passed away. Thinking about my boy would do anything to have em back!!
Beginning Friday in Minnesota, 11 of next 13 Spurs opponents sport losing records.
Combined to go 38.4 percent last year. Swap out Mills, Belinelli for Joseph, Daye in the process, that's how you get major offensive slump.
Alright, I'm done with the Fran captions. I think.
There is nothing about that sentence that makes me feel better about this conversation.
"I should have a phone, but I was at a tattoo party and we all got robbed."
Big props to the guy on the train I don’t know who continues to ask if he can borrow my phone to make a call.
Spurs' usual closing lineup of Parker, Manu, Kawhi, Duncan & Diaw is outscoring teams by 21.4 points per 100 possessions in 45 mins so far.
Defeating Cavs 92-90 last night kept the Spurs' Offensive Rating ranked 24th (99.1 PP/100) and Defensive Rating ranked 3rd (95.7 PP/100)
Toughest schedules (vs. 500 or above opponents) through first 11-12 games: Lakers (11 of 12 foes), Spurs (9 of 11 foes), Hornets (9 of 12).
Early discrepancy between the East and Western Conference. West is 100-75 combined as of this morning, East is 75-94.
Oklahoma City is 3-10. In the West, there's a chance you might have to be nine games over .500 to come in 8th. So ... lot of work to do.
No truth to the rumor Spurs docs had to hook Boris Diaw to a gravy IV after his 40-minute night.
Boris Diaw played nearly 40 minutes tonight. Yipes.
Pop on Cavs: "I'm glad we played them now. They're going to be a whole lot tougher."
Pop, in summary: "I don't think either team played great. Neither team will take deep satisfaction from it."
Sometimes, it's as simple as the ball just not going into the hole.
Tonight, before the Spurs made their first 3-pointer in the second quarter, they had missed 3 completely open 3s, and 3 slightly contested.
Forgot Leonard when doing the fantastic all-around lines game: 12 points, 10 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals while matched up with the BPOTP.
Amis insomniaques merci pour vos messages. Il est moins tard quand on joue l'est! Bonne victoire chez un "gros". Bonne nuit a vous
Was watching the game at a restaurant-bar setting. Forgot what it's like when a bunch of Bros are screaming like crazy people.
Spurs improve to 7-4 with 92-90 over Cavs. SA held 2nd ranked CLE offense to less than 22 points in all but one quarter.
Another quality defensive performance from Spurs. Cavs had been averaging almost 110 points/100 possessions. Tonight -- 93.1.
Two of those last seven points for James came after Duncan switched out, lost him going to the rim.
Yup, what Mikey said. Leonard was great. Over final 43 minutes, LeBron was 3 for 14 with 7 points. Can D him up any better than that.
Great lines for Duncan, Diaw. The grandmaster: 19/10/3/2/2. Bobo: 19/6/7/3/1. Parker, Ginobili combine to go 9 for 10 at line down stretch.
Knocks over imaginary cactus plant in his head...
Spurs won 5 of last 6, with coin-flip loss at Sacramento. (Also a coin-flip win today.) "It's a good win for us," Duncan said.
