That would be flabbergasting, spend almost three full months in 7th, then getting hot down the stretch and climb all the way to 3.
Don't see them catching No. 3 Houston, three games ahead, but sweep their upcoming home-and-home and who knows?
Spurs trail No. 4 Portland, No. 5 LAC by only one game in the loss column.
The Spurs over the last 14 games. Offense: 113.1 PP/100 (1st) Defense: 99.4 PP/100 (9th) SA is winning by 13.4 PPG (1st during stretch)
Taking tmw off. Might even shave. Gonna be a big Thursday...
So I guess what the Spurs are saying, quite consistently, is that they'd like to be more consistent.
Pop: "We're looking for consistency." Parker: "The challenge is to find some consistency." Manu: "We need to find consistency."
For all "Spurs are back" stuff you're seeing, they still have these weird blips. They're well aware. Consistency was the topic of the day.
"...we're going to have to play good on the road and put games together, just play good for five, 10 games in a row. We're all motivated."
Parker: "I'm still mad from last night. It's so weird to play a great 1st Q and then it suddenly goes away. If we want to do anything..."
39 points ranks as the Spurs' largest margin of victory in more than two years (also beat Detroit by that many on 3/3/13).
Got to use the words conquest, ravage, rampage and slaughter in my recap. Pretty happy with that.
Spurs have won 11 of past 14. All 11 wins have been by double digits.
Yeah yeah ... I know the Thunder were missing a lot of important pieces. You're up by 44 at the YMCA, you're playing good ball.
Russell Westbrook, who has been killing everyone lately, made zero baskets after the first quarter tonight. Didn't play in the fourth, still
J'espère que vous avez passé une meilleure soirée devant le match les insomniaques car moi oui. Merci pour vos messages et bonne nuit à tous
Great back to back game from our old team 😄 ! Thanks for the support and happy that everybody could play minutes! See you Friday guys !
“We were upset by how we played yesterday…we need to find consistency.” - Manu Ginobili
Parker on Boris Diaw’s latest aggressiveness: “Boris can play when he wants to.”
“I’m still mad from last night. That’s going to be the challenge, trying to find that consistency.” - Tony Parker.
Jeff Ayres doin’ work: 10 points, 8 boards in 11 minutes.
Pop said Parker set the tone for the Spurs on both ends tonight, in regards to SA defensive game plan on Westbrook.
In 6 of their last 11 games, San Antonio has tallied 27-38 assists.
The Spurs finished with 28 assists on 51 makes. 24 of their dimes came after the 1Q.
Even the Spurs' bench poured in the points. SA outscored OKC 30-17 in the fourth. SA held a lead of 44 points at one time.
The Spurs improve to 45-26 with a 130-91 victory over the Thunder. Parker/Diaw (40 combined points) lead 7 Spurs players in double-figures
The Spurs have found their rhythm on this night from beyond the arc - now 13/19 from distance. Mills 11 points.
126 points is the Spurs' highest scoring output of the season. Three mins still to go...
Joseph gets on the scoreboard. Reggie Williams has 4:02 to score to give SA 13 players with a point on the board. SA by 38.
Not a typo: 120-82 with 4:02 to go.
Yes. We had the Cube Steaks. This lineup is the Off-Brand Sandwich Pockets.
8 points for Patty now at shooting practice, he’s 2/2 from distance.
The Spurs are a Joseph and Williams basket away from having all 13 active players score in this game.
How 'bout this lineup: Williams, Joseph, Mills, Ayres, Bonner...with 8 minutes to go.
Patrick w/ 5 pts. Probably a sign of confidence when you’re running the opposite direction of the basket, turn on a dime and drill a jumper.
Mills gets on the scoreboard with a corner three. SA is now shooting 10/15 from distance.
Put all that together, and I still have no idea what to make of this team.
Spurs about to be 11-3 in that stretch. Whole bunch of blowouts marred by eggs against NY, Dallas, plus choke job against Land of Cleve.
The Thunder defense did a tad better in the third, only allowed San Antonio 29 points in that last quarter.
3Q: Spurs 100, Thunder 74. French players Parker & Diaw have 40 points combined. 5 SA players have scored in double figures. SA 9/14 3PT.
19 for Boris Diaw. He’s woken up from his slumber from October to February. March is a new month for him.
Amount of wide-open shots the Spurs are getting is stunning. About three hours after their coach said execution "isn't close" to last year.
Spurs have already surpassed last night's scoring total with 15 minutes to spare.
21 points for Parker now. Mills and Tiago soon to check in. SA by 31.
Semi-surprised Pop didn't call TO there after unimpeded drive to the rim. Gotta protect that 28-point lead.
This is the Spurs’ fourth 30 point lead in the last 14 games.
Spurs up 91-61 with 5:29 left. Game seems to be ending early ... OMG THERE'S A WHOLE QUARTER AND A HALF TO GO.
The Spurs are shooting 9/13 from three. San Antonio takes a 91-61 lead after the Diaw three. 5:29 left in 3Q.
Now Bobo hits from long range. Spurs are up THIRTY w/ 5:29 left in the third quarter.
That Duncan’s second corner three off a pick-and-pop this season.
Tim Duncan's 2nd 3-point make of season, and not a desperation 24-sec. beater
Duncan would be the second-best 3-point shooter on this version of the Thunders.
TIM DUNCAN CORNER THREE MAKIN’ DUDE.
Duncan 3. Sure, why not?
Pop wasn’t happy with Green giving Waiters space, Beli will come in next for Green.
Trainer doesn’t go to Parker, he’ll stay in the game.
Early timeout, Spurs up 25 w/ 9:06 left in the 3rd quarter.
Waiters swiped at the ball when Parker was dribbling. Parker is holding his hand/fingers area. Sits down with teammates on bench.
Duncan with the short bank shot on one end, contests Adams miss on the other end. Still got it...
Duncan is the fourth a Spurs starter in double figures scoring with 11 points. SA by 21.
Fun fact: Provided everything holds up, only players with 100 3s on 40 pct or better over last 4 seasons will be Curry, Korver, Danny Green.
Second-best half of the season for the Spurs, trailing only 72 in 1st against L.A. Clippers on Dec. 22.
The OKC defense in the first half: Gave up 32 in the first, tightened it up by giving up 39 in the second to San Antonio.
Shooting: Spurs 63%, Thunder 43%. 3PT: SA 7/10, OKC 2/4 Assists: SA 13 assists, OKC 8 Turnovers: SA 7, OKC 7 Paint: SA 32, OKC 24
Been watching this game for 25 years, and it still amazes me how things can change from night to night in the NBA.
Parker - 15; Leonard - 12; Diaw - 12; Green - 12; Duncan - 9. Spurs shooting 63 pct, 7 of 10 on 3s; 13 assists on 27 buckets.
Half: Spurs 71, Thunder 50. Parker 15 points, Kawhi 12 points, Green 10 points, Diaw/Manu/Beli 25 combined points.
Leonard hits the buzzer-beating 3. Spurs lead 71(!!!!)-50 at half, pending review.
Leonard beats the buzzer from 3, and that's 71 in the first half for Los Spurs. Cue Vulgar Display of Power.
Spurs’ ball movement from 1Q to 2Q. 1Q: 3 assists on 11 makes 2Q: 9 assists on 14 makes
This is the same team that could barely complete a pass for more than two quarters last night in Dallas.
Kawhi had 3 defenders on him so he found Boris under the basket for layup. Then Duncan and-1 opp. SA by 22.
Spurs up 20.
Starters all have at least 8, have combined for 50 points.
Green three, he has 10 points. SA by 18.
OKC has no defensive answers for Spurs so far. Just like last year's playoffs when Ibaka was out/hobbled.
16-point game. Spurs absolutely shredding the Thunders -- 57 points on 60 pct shooting. Seven Spurs with at least 6 points.
Kawhi had Augustin on him in the post, Duncan recognized and went high-low for the oop. Spurs by 16, new largest lead of night.
14 point lead for San Antonio on consecutive nights. Lead comes with 5:44 left in the 2Q.
Belinelli with the 3 and Spurs have a double-digit lead for (I think) their 14th consecutive game. Up 49-37 midway through 2Q.
Good to great shot selection on last Beli three. Spurs take a 12 point lead, their 14th game in a row with a double-digit lead.
Belinelli with his second corner 3 in three possessions, also playing some really solid defense (no, really). Not a bad birfday so far.
Danny Green putback dunk? DANNY GREEN PUTBACK DUNK!
