HoopsHype San Antonio Spurs twitter
Would love to see somebody pull an outfit prank on Tim. Except they'd have to do it with nice clothes.
I saw a Land Walrus drive.
Sean Elliott saying Duncan might have been the mastermind behind Engelland's wardrobe mishap.
NBA coaches have no shame. Barely 10 minutes after no-call on Duncan's foul, Pop lighting into officials for apparent hold on Ginobili.
It's felt like Spencer Hawes has been Cleveland's best player for most of the night. That's not 100% a good thing.
With seven rebounds, Tim Duncan has matched Wes Unseld for 11th on the NBA's all-time list (13,769).
Spurs with their largest lead of the game, 65-51, after Leonard's Bowen Memorial Corner 3.
Spurs up to largest lead -- 62-51 -- with 6:54 left 3Q. Parker has a foul shot coming out of this timeout.
Beautiful finish by Parker. Spins into the paint, absorbs contact from Irving and feathers in the scoop shot, and 1.
Brown irate after that no-call on Duncan, and he's right. That wasn't even close to being a legit blocked shot.
Brown had a point. Everyone on the floor -- including Duncan -- thought that was a foul. Refs give Brown a make-up immediately.
Poor Mike Brown. It took at least six seconds for Monty McCutcheon to realize he was out on the floor begging for a tech.
Quick hook for Splitter, less than a minute into 3Q. Diaw in.
Spurs reach 50 points at half after lowest-scoring 1Q of the season (13).
Spurs lead 50-40 at half.
Spurs started 1 of 7 from 3-point range. Now they're 7 of 14.
35-17 Spurs in quarter No. 2.
Spurs have flipped a 12-point deficit into 10-point lead in this quarter.
Very quickly, Duncan up to five rebounds.
Spurs had scored 29 points in 14 possessions before two straight misses.
Mills and Parker playing together now.
Great elastic dunk by Mr. Fantastic, er, Kawhi Leonard. Needed every inch of those gigantic mitts.
Coming in, Duncan needed eight rebounds to pass Wes Unseld for 11th on all-time chart. So far, he has one.
26 in 12.
Fresh off the injured list, Dion Waiters simply scorching. Up to 13 already.
Spurs with 21 points in 10 possessions midway through the 2nd quarter after just 13 in 1st.
Quick 15-2 run, and Spurs wipe out 12-point deficit to take lead.
You know, part of the reason the Spurs seem to get off to these disjointed starts ... starting lineup has barely played together this year.
11-0 run for the Spurs after Belinelli's transition layup, and 1 to come.
Sometimes it really is a simple game. Stop throwing the ball to the other team. Start throwing it in the basket. Voila.
Whatdyaknown ... shots start falling, Spurs tie the game.
Back to back 3s from Mills and the Land Walrus, and it's a two-point game.
Never a good time to be turnover prone, but Thursday's visit from Miami gonna turn into a Slam Dunk contest if Spurs don't clean it up.
Toast for dinner...what kind of parents are you.
Spurs miss 16 of 21 shots in 1Q. Many of them were good looks, too. Expecting that will correct itself a bit.
Well that was yucky. Spurs score 13 points in 1Q at Cleveland, trail Cavs by 10.
Anthony Bennett makes gorgeous post move to leave Diaw flat-footed...lays it into the side of the rim.
Another blech start for the Spurs, shooting 26.5% with four turnovers. Cavs hardly playing great, but lead 13-9.
Kawhi loves those corner 3s in Cleveland.
Chip looks like somebody died.
Oops ... Cleveland also beat Washington during this recent stretch. Wizards also a playoff team now.
Cleveland owns just one win over playoff team since Dec. 8 -- that was Feb. 26 at OKC.
Cavs certainly playing better of late than November, when they took 30-point shellacking in SA. Still ...
I'd say Danny Green just faked Kyrie out of his shoe ... but I think Irving just lost it. Cavs have to burn a timeout to get PG re-shoed.
LOL, Engelland got stuck wearing a Sager-esque gold sports coat during the anthem. Boylen, Udoka and Marks love it. Engelland did not.
Patty Mills with an early call for Parker.
Aint just cold outside the Q. These teams combine to start 2 of 12
Cavs starters: Irving, Jack, Deng, Thompson, Hawes. Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Duncan, Splitter.
Just a couple dudes waiting for the media elevator at the Q. http://t.co/KPruKnAtvm
Apparently we're here for the coldest March 3 and 4 in the history of Cleveland. Lucky us.
Spurs v Cavs 7pm eastern...tune in
Everybody available for Spurs tonight in Cleveland. Two games in a row!
Can I write 100-line news story, do radio interview AND finish last bit of House of Cards episode before 6 p.m. tip? I think I can.
Hey, it's Kyrie Irving Bobblehead Night!
Re-watching that clip, holy CRAP was that terrible defense from Dion Waiters. C'mon, rook...
Another takeaway from Garber comments: SA was not high on initial list of potential candidates, but has forced its way into consideration.
No scholarship seniors last year. None this year. And Jonathan Holmes will be the only one in 2015. Kind of amazing.
Rick Barnes on Texas "senior night" tomorrow: "It's going to be a tearjerker."
More Garber on Castro: "(He) understands how the demographics of his city could really embrace our sport in ways that could be special."
Garber on Castro: "We love him." Guessing he feels a little differently about Phil Hardberger.
Otherwise, continues to sound like Atlanta is a mortal lock, Minneapolis isn't far behind for last 2 spots. At least that's how I read it.
Too good a market, potentially, not to. Garber also visibly lit up when talking about Castro, so he likes what's going on in SA as well.
So reading tea leaves, Austin is a ways away from having anything tangible set up, but MLS probably bides its time to see what happens there
I.E., if the Scorpions remain at NASL.
Lavished praise on SA, Scorpions and especially Mayor Castro. But also hedged bet by saying MLS will look at strengthening lower levels.
So, summing up, Garber says expansion to Texas "will likely" happen, if not in this round then in the future.
How many MoPac wrecks will it take before TxDOT realizes it completely mucked up the lane striping?
"...Incredibly impressive organization, fantastic ownership group. There are good things happening there, so we'll see."
MLS commissioner Garber on Scorpions as potential MLS expansion: "Mayor Castro is one of the great politics in our country; we love him..."
"Be careful what you get good at." -- Rust Cohle
Ask Matt Bonner about his parenting trials and tribulations. Always a hot topic in pregame.
Still thrilled with selling out Toyota for 1-1 draw with FC Dallas. "The intent was to send a message. The fans spoke loud and clear."
Cornfield says Scorpions haven't received official (read: MLS) feedback after Saturday's match, and wasn't expecting him.
40 degrees in March isn't really that bad. But for San Antonio, it might as well be Hoth.
Love how the Epcot twitter account referred to this apparent Jameer Nelson impostor as a "gentleman." I'd have gone with "scoundrel."
