HoopsHype San Antonio Spurs twitter
If I turn up dead in the next 24 hours, it's probably because of that last Tweet. Still worth it.
Last three possessions for the Captain: Terrible pass, posts up Matt Bonner, forces air ball 3.
Back-to-back 3s from Mills and Green, augmented with some poor play from Captain Jack, and the Spurs are back within four, 86-82.
Looks like Jack really did eat everything he Instagrammed over the past six months.
Anchorman on Anchorman crime. Jackson posts up Bonner, scores.
Right shin contusion for Parker. Done for the night.
Five straight turnovers for the Spurs.
The b is silent, apparently.
This guy's doing a bit, right?
Four straight turnovers
Spurs had gotten into a decent rhythm. Now with three straight TOs. Trail 78-70 in final minute of the 3Q.
I do love these Clips uniforms.
Ginobili swoarping to the rim
Parker did something to his knee on the Hollins offensive foul, then appeared to bang it again.
Haunches of Fury
Parker's limping off to the locker room.
No bueno. Parker limping back to the locker room.
Spurs blew about 3 chances to take a lead. Now things feel like they're spiraling a bit.
I do not see an illegal screen there.
Sean LOVES to chide/criticize opposing players.
Pop will tolerate misses. But turnovers, missed defensive assignments,playing beyond role? Those are the things that get you benched.
7-0 run for Spurs, down only 59-58
Doc is hot
Pop shakes up starting 5 to open 2nd half. Calls a timeout after Clips' first possession. Hide your kids, hide your wife.
Tim Duncan now having his own heart to heart talk with his teammates in huddle on floor
No Danny Green to start 3Q. He's been benched since the consecutive turnovers in 2Q.
Solid 1dt 1/2 for Duncan (13 and 5) but Blake Griffin unstoppable in 2nd; he's got 19 pts, Chris Paul 14
After that craptastic start to 2Q, Spurs have to be happy with mere 6-point deficit at half.
Clips used monster 19-0 run midway through second quarter to pull ahead of Spurs, lead 55-49 at the break.
Griffin up to 11 FTAs, 17 points overall. Clips lead by eight.
That's one way for the NBA to thwart "Hack-A-Whoever." Just hire WWF referees who pretend not to see it.
Blake Griffin making jumpers and free throws is problematic.
Doesn't feel like Paul is playing super great. Then I check the box score: 14 pts, 3 rebs, 3 assts, 2 steals, no TOs, 6-7 FGs.
Belinelli is not going to shoot 56% from 3 all season. Is he?
"Hey guys, maybe stop throwing the ball directly to Chris Paul and also playing volleyball with DeAndre Jordan, m'kay?" -- Pop, probably
Basically doing all the things you can't do against the Clippers here in 2Q. A regular "How Not-To" Manual.
16-0 run for Los Clippers.
Quite a scoring drought here for Spurs in 2Q. That vaunted Clippers defense.
Jack had been 1 for 8 coming in. So of course he's 2 for 2.
I believe Pop still does like Jack. Just wasn't going to let him poison a playoff run.
Patty Mills, blockin shots
I absolutely, positively do not understand pro wrestling.
More isos for Scorin' Boris, please.
Not what I was expecting from this game so far.
Sad day in San Antonio. We lost a Komodo Dragon in a fire at the zoo.
Stephen Jackson. Nando De Colo. Tonight.
Blake Griffin. Tim Duncan. Tonight.
Chris Paul. Tony Parker. Tonight.
Funny thing is, H&H nearly hired Gary Barnett.
Notable hirings, Dec. 1997: M. Brown, Texas; D. Franchione, TCU; D. Koetter, Boise State; H. Nutt, Arkansas; C. Kramer, H&H Bagels.
The other nine schools in the Big 12 have combined to make 21 coaching hires since Texas made its last one.
Since the last time Texas hired a football coach, Todd Graham and James Franklin have worked for seven teams apiece.
Tiago Splitter cleared to play in spurs game vs. Clippers tonight, per Popovich
I need them taxis tho
Patterson: "I'd like to have a coach by Tuesday at noon if I could." Admits that's unlikely.
Patterson: "Whoever's going to coach here is going to have extensive experience in college."
Patterson: "College football is a different enterprise than the NFL. There are far different requirements for a college coach."
Patterson: "There's been a lot of malarkey in the press. I think Bill and I have (reportedly) had lunch with a dozen different coaches."
Powers: "Steve will hire the next coach. Athletics is not my field."
Patterson on search: The key is setting the criteria, getting some clarification on that, then moving as expeditiously as we can.
Powers: It was (Mack's) decision. I was not given any direction at all from any regent on this issue.
That was a spur-of-the-moment question and a spur-of-the-moment answer. That's who Mack is.
Mack on the two things he'd change from last 16 years: He'd want Cole Pittman back, and for the A&M Bonfire collapse not to have happened.
Mack: Since 2010 it's been a fight. ... All I wanted to do was get it back for the next guy.
Mack: "The standard's really high here and I'm proud to have been a part of setting it."
Mack: "I have absolutely no anger and no regrets about anything that's happened."
Mack on critics: "I agree with them. I don't believe we've lived up to the standards we've set since 2010."
Mack gives another shoutout to the infamous Topeka DJ: "They had me quitting two years ago in a basement in Topeka."
Mack "I went back and forth all week. There's too many distractions. Players and coaches shouldn't have to deal with negativity about me."
Mack: I want to be remembered for bringing joy to Texas and getting us back on track.
Mack: I've never done anything but coaching. That's something I'll have to look at.
Mack: "I might even write a book. Being the head coach at Texas is interesting."
Mack thanking the media. "We need the truth told in America, and we don't get that all the time. We're getting rumors."
Mack: It may be the best job in the country. You should be in the mix every year. It's time for Texas to be back in the mix.
Mack Brown said Patterson and Powers told him they wanted him to stay. Then they mutually decided it was time for him to move on.
Mack Brown telling his Darrell Royal "get the BBs back in the box" story for about the 100th time. Still applicable.
Mack Brown sitting down for his press conference now.
