Though playing well in spurts, Spurs camp invitees Cotton, Green face some tough math ahead expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a…

Quixem Ramirez

Tim Duncan is better than 400+ NBA players. He's 38 years old. This isn't even fair anymore.

Quixem Ramirez

Typical office stuff http://t.co/kqiykt3KWe

Kyle Anderson

Judge Judy goin off! Lol

Quixem Ramirez

Manu's self-awareness is what separates him from most basketball players. He realizes his physical limitations. And he's still damn good too

Quixem Ramirez

I'd like to thank @TacoBell and my mom. http://t.co/lPjmCHedey

Jeff McDonald

Sadly, might be what I miss most about college RT @NHLMaps Stumbled across this, thought I'd share with my Texan bros bit.ly/1DxwmVN

Boris Diaw

J'en avais parlé il y a un petit moment et voilà, dimanche vers 21h une petite session #askboris pour tout le monde ! #GoSpursGo

Boris Diaw

I know it talked about it a long time ago but time flies ! What about #askboris this Sunday around 2pm San Antonio time ? #GoSpursGo

Mike Finger

That differs from Texas' deal with Charlie Strong, whose entire $26M contract is guaranteed.

Mike Finger

Rick Barnes' contract extension was finalized this month and includes a buyout. UT could terminate for $1.75M this year, $1.5M next year.

Quixem Ramirez

NBA TV will air "championship day" coverage for the Spurs, Oct. 27. Couldn't think of a better way to kick off the season.

Jeff McDonald

The one bright spot: Manu says he believes his conditioning will be where it needs to be for opener. Rest of his game will take some time.

Jeff McDonald

The fact that Manu often has to talk about going 1 for 11 for 10 minutes in two different languages should count for bonus points, I think.

Jeff McDonald

Dirk Nowitzki won it last year, and I can't argue with that.

Jeff McDonald

The Magic Johnson award, btw, is meant to signify a star-caliber player who goes above and beyond in cooperation with the media.

Jeff McDonald

Says he's like a BBQ grill that hasn't been cleaned in 10 years. At that point, you just buy a new grill. Not an option with his body.

Jeff McDonald

Manu says this summer was longest break without any sort of hoops, even pickup, since maybe after Beijing in '08. As rusty as he's ever been

Jeff McDonald

Seven minutes of Manu after lengthy NBA meeting, a night after going 1 for 11. How this guy has never won the Magic Johnson award escapes me

Dan McCarney

Ginobili compared himself to a grill that hasn't been cleaned in years. The older he is, the harder it is to scrape the rust off.

Jeff McDonald

Players preoccupied by NBA meetings, we're passing time watching a heck of a HORSE game between Ime Udoka and Becky Hammon.

Dan McCarney

Hammon is taking everything left handed and Ime just cannot hang.

Dan McCarney

Meanwhile, Ime can't even clear the shot clock. A tale of two ballers.

Dan McCarney

And she's telling him about it...

Dan McCarney

Udoka, Hammon and Spurs staffer playing horse. Staffer makes two in a row from behind the backboard, of course Hammon matches both.

Mike Monroe

Dan McCarney

Take heart with those Prediction Machine odds. Same site put the Spurs at 7.4 pct to win the championship with 50K simulation.

Dan McCarney

Titles are nice, but Malone most impressed with Spurs' team spirit #spurs blog.mysanantonio.com/spursnation/20…

Dan McCarney

You might not like Ayres, but Popovich does: "Any coach would like to have him. He tries hard to do anything you ask. He's a class act."

Paul Garcia

Danny Green: "As long as we're moving the ball, we're heading in the right direction."

Dan McCarney

Mike Malone, asked if he felt bad for Popovich dealing with so many preseason injuries: "I feel awful for him and his five championships."

Paul Garcia

Boogie doesn't approve losing to SA 3rd string: "We have to beat them. Second unit and guys trying to make the team. We have to be better."

#Spurs rookie Kyle Anderson, on matching up on D against #Kings DeMarcus Cousins: 'I tried to stay out of the way of his elbow pads.'

Kyle Anderson

Leaving dudes hungry but you eatin mr chow dog? @Beltreeee RT @tonyparker32: Me.Chow type of night for me

Boris Diaw

Let's keep on working and get ready for the season. Thanks fans for your messages and supporting us. #GoSpursGo

Dan McCarney

Final box: Cousins got the triple double. 32 pts, 11 rebounds, 10 turnovers.

Paul Garcia

Coach Pop on Jeff Ayres: "Jeff's always upbeat whether he plays 18 minutes or zero. He's a class act."

Jeff McDonald

Matt Bonner textsour @Mike Monroe reason for his absence tonight: Attending grandmother's funeral in New Hampshire.

Paul Garcia

Pop once again in back-to-back games on Kyle Anderson: "He's a really smart player."

Paul Garcia

Pop on Baynes, Ayres vs. Cousins: "I thought Aron and Jeff played really smart in the second half."

Paul Garcia

Kyle Anderson finished with 14 points, 5 boards, 3 steals, and 1 block.

Dan McCarney

Just realized: Joseph didn't even play after big performance the other night.

Dan McCarney

Final: Spurs 106, Sacramento 99. Rallied from 16-point deficit. 18 turnovers, but only 6 in 2nd half. Ayres, 15 pts; J Green/Anderson, 14.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs finish off come-from-behind 106-99 win over Kings. Six players in double figures, led by Jeff Ayres' 15.

Paul Garcia

Despite being down 16 points at one time, the Preseason Spurs make a comeback to defeat the Kings 106-99. Ayres 15 points, Anderson 14.

Dan McCarney

Spurs on verge of finishing this one off, up 106-99, 10.3 seconds left. Anderson, Ayres, Belinelli, J. Green and Daye all with at least 12.

Dan McCarney

Epic line for Cousins: 32 pts, 11 rebs, 4 asst, 2 stl, 1 blk, 9 TO, 5 pf (all offensive)

Jeff McDonald

Spurs are up 104-99 on Sacramento, 35.9 seconds away from 1st preseason win over an NBA squad.

Mike Monroe

Boogie Cousins has 5 fouls vs. #Spurs ... all offensive; 35.9 sec. left, SAS 104, SAC 99

Jeff McDonald

When you have four offensive fouls, sure go ahead and run over Jeff Ayres with the game on the line, Boogie

Paul Garcia

Boogie called for his 5th offensive foul of the night.

Paul Garcia

Now Ayres with the pass to Beli, who cut to the rim for the layup and foul. Spurs 102-99

Paul Garcia

Gay beats Anderson under the rim, Kyle forced to foul. Spurs lead 100-99 with 1:18 left.

Dan McCarney

Cousins dunks, 32 in 34, 12 for 14 shooting.

Dan McCarney

Closing lineup: Cotton, Belinelli, Ayres, Daye, Anderson.

Dan McCarney

Boogie inside, and that's 30 in 33.

Mike Monroe

Slo-Mo Anderson with a steal and end-to-end drive for bucket-and-one to give #Spurs 100-93 lead with 2:32 left vs. #Kings.

Dan McCarney

Hits and the Spurs lead 100-93...

Paul Garcia

Kyle Anderson folks. Held his own in the post vs. Boogie, then ripped Collison. Then, makes the and-1 layup in transition. Rook has 14 point

Dan McCarney

Slo-Mo strips Anderson, takes 20 seconds to dribble downcourt, converts the layup, and 1.

Dan McCarney

Jeff Ayres with 15 and 6 in 21 minutes. #preseason

Dan McCarney

AKA, the preseason RT @JejeGomez_PtR 62 of Spurs' 93 points courtesy of Ayres, Baynes, Daye, Anderson, Cotton and J. Green. The Scrubs Game.

Dan McCarney

Bryce Cotton with the hiiiiiiigh-arcing floater in traffic while Pop chews out timekeeper for resetting clock, Spurs lead 97-93/2:57 left.

Paul Garcia

Now Ayres and Cotton get involved in give-and-go action, with Ayres threading a pass b/w 2 defenders for Cotton layup. SA 97-93

Jeff McDonald

Spurs lead 97-93 with 2:57 to play, btw

Jeff McDonald

Pop getting angry at the shot clock guy during a preseason game is the best.

Paul Garcia

Jeff Ayres with the made 14 foot hook shot. I don't know how it went in, but it did. Sours lead 95-93 with 3:18 left.

Dan McCarney

Ayres hits the goofy extended jump hook, now has team-high 15 and the Spurs lead 95-93.

Mike Monroe

Boogie Cousins just knocked down Jeff Ayres but went to line ... Pop to ref Eli Roe: 'Don't tell me that was a flop'

Dan McCarney

Apropos of nothing: Pop rhymes with flop.

Dan McCarney

Cousins gets away with a charge, draws two FTs on Jeff Ayres. Pop, in heated discussion with official: "Don't tell me that's a flop."

Jeff McDonald

Tony Parker didn't want to come out of a tight game with 4:45 to go. He was overruled.

Paul Garcia

Good defense right there by Anderson. Gay used a screen, but Kyle got around and was effective in contesting the shot.

Jeff McDonald

Pop should put Duncan in right now. It would be hilarious.

Dan McCarney

5:27 left in 4Q, Sacto leads Spurs 92-91. Cousins with 27/10, Daye and Parker with 13 apiece to pace the locals. Only 4 TOs in 2nd!!!

Jeff McDonald

Once again, not a bad little game for a pretend one. Kings lead 92-91 with 5:27 to go.

Paul Garcia

Spurs run zipper action and result is Parker driving in and pitching out to Austin Daye open in the corner for three. SA down 92-91.

Dan McCarney

Me: 2,000 years ago, Baynes would have been hell of a tribal champion. @Jeff McDonald: 60 years ago, he would have been best player in NBA.

Paul Garcia

Aron Baynes just stole the ball from Ramon Sessions. That is all..

Dan McCarney

Daye puts it back and the Spurs are back in front. AT&T Center vaguely excited.

Dan McCarney

Anderson has 11 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assists in 21 minutes. Not quite as good as the other night, but IQ is apparent yet again.

Paul Garcia

Anderson is getting really comfortable out there, starting to use the pick and roll now to get things going too as the ball handler.

Dan McCarney

Anderson picks Sessions' pocket, starts break that ends with his two-hand dunk. Spurs back within 1. Fighting hard in this pretend game.
