French #Spurs with 22 of 29 pts. in 1st quarter, @Tony Parker 13, @Boris Diaw 9; SAS 29, MIN 26

Paul Garcia

1Q: Spurs 29, Wolves 26. Parker 13 points, Diaw 9. Mow Williams 9 points, 3 assists. SA 16 points in paint, but 6 turnovers.

Dan McCarney

Parker (13), Diaw (nine) combined for 22 of the Spurs' 29 first-quarter points, lead the savage Timberwolves by three.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs lead Wolves 29-26 after 1Q.

Dan McCarney

Mo Williams hurting the Spurs with 9 points, 2 assists. Never seen this before.

Dan McCarney

Parker's shot chart so far. I see a trend. http://t.co/iL0hqMTd1Z

Jeff McDonald

Parker, with 13 points, is on pace for his highest-scoring game ever at the Target Center. Which is saying something.

Dan McCarney

Parker killing it. 13 on 6 for 9, getting to the rim at will.

Paul Garcia

Mo Williams is 3/4 shooting with 7 points. Parker, Diaw with 18 of Spurs' 22 points. 14 points in paint for SA.

Mike Monroe

Belinelli with a RB bucket on his first possession back from injury (strained groin) ... SAS 22, MIN 18, 3:38 left in 1st in Minny

Jeff McDonald

Pop: "Eh ... it's in English, so he won't read it."

Jeff McDonald

Pop made another "no defense" crack about Belinelli before the game tonight. I told Pop he's going to give Belinelli a complex.

Paul Garcia

Marco scored on his first offensive possession. Manu missed a layup, Beli cleaned the miss. SA 22-18

Dan McCarney

First Spurs bucket with no French fingerprints. Spurs up 22-18 late in the first quarter.

Dan McCarney

Belinelli's first bucket in weeks comes on, of all things, an offensive putback.

Jeff McDonald

Belinelli gets his first basket on a put-back. Because that's what Belinelli do.

Jeff McDonald

Marco Belinelli checks in for the first time since Nov. 4.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs French players have 18 of their 20 pts.

Paul Garcia

Boris makes the Spurs' first 3-point shot of the night off a drive from Parker. SA shooting 50% from three.

Dan McCarney

Diaw and Parker have accounted for all 17 of the Spurs points -- 15 as scorers, plus Diaw's assist to Leonard.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs offense looks good here early. Tony Parker being allowed to go anywhere he darn well pleases helps.

Paul Garcia

Question: What do you think happened on the Spurs' first three point attmept? A) They missed it. B) They made it. Answer: A

Dan McCarney

Boris pulls rebound, leads break, dishes to Parker for the layup. Oui.

Paul Garcia

10 of the Spurs' first 12 points have come in the paint. Minny is really going to miss Pek tonight.

Jeff McDonald

It's Les Bleus 12, Wolves 8 here early. Spurs lead by four (also have a Kawhi bucket).

Paul Garcia

Spurs up 12-8 early on Wolves. Tony Parker with a quick 6 points. SA 1 assist on 6 makes, Parker has advantage driving though.

Dan McCarney

Timeout in Minneapolis, Spurs up 12-8 early in the 1st.

Jeff McDonald

Don't think the Wolves have the hosses to pull this off, but I'd definitely be playing Mo Williams in my fantasy league, if I had one.

Dan McCarney

Last poss was a good example why advantage would be nice in basketball. Touch foul erases Parker pass for Duncan layup, TO when play reset.

Mike Monroe

I'm setting over-under on Mo Williams points vs. #Spurs tonight at 26.5 ... over or under?

Dan McCarney

Spurs warmups looking especially silvery tonight.

Dan McCarney

Apropos of nothing, first NBA game I ever attended was at Target Center, Christian Laettner's rookie debut. God I hated Christian Laettner.

Paul Garcia

"Why is everyone Greek?"....."My mom made it, opa!"..."Toga, toga, toga."

Jeff McDonald

Spurs have lost four of their last five at the Target Center. The one win in there, I seem to recall Danny Green going nuts from 3.

Jeff McDonald

Minnesota's new starting lineup, preparing for tipoff: http://t.co/7BJBL25I3b

Jeff McDonald

Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Duncan, Diaw. Wolves: Mo Williams, Brewer, Wiggins, Muhammad, Dieng.

Jeff McDonald

Wolves are missing four would-be starters tonight against the Spurs: Rubio, Pekovic, Martin, Thad Young.

Jeff McDonald

Muhammad believes Anderson can compensate for being "Slo-Mo" in the NBA, same as he did at UCLA: "He's smart. He's got the smartest IQ."

Jeff McDonald

Muhammad on Slo-Mo: "That's probably my favorite player ever to play with."

Jeff McDonald

Minny's Shabazz Muhammad is admittedly biased but he thinks the Spurs "got a steal" taking Kyle Anderson in the draft.

Jeff McDonald

Boris Diaw, fresh off a 39-minute stint in Cleveland, will earn his second straight start at "center" tonight for the Spurs.

Mike Finger

Can't second-guess that. 16-point lead with over 2 mins isn't garbage time. RT @EMoodyHorns: Maybe (Taylor) shouldn't have been in so late.

Kevin Martin usually tortures #Spurs with uncanny shooting but not tonight; MRI reveals fracture in wrist, per @InsideHoops

Jeff McDonald

So no Kevin Martin tonight for Wolves against Spurs.

Paul Garcia

I sound like a homer since I write for the site, but the chemistry, knowledge, & hilarious commentary @DukeOfBexar & @JRG1023 have is solid

Game day in Minnesota ! Any Spurs fans in the cold tonight at the arena? Have a nice Friday. #GoSpursGo

Mike Finger

Vance Bedford, should A&M play Texas? "That's a political question I'm not able to speak on at this time. ... I take the fifth."

Jeff McDonald

There's definitely a caste system on those team flights. Nobody cares if Bonner gets Bill Land or Bill Schoening sick.

Jeff McDonald

Pop says Spurs actually made Bonner fly to Minny in the lavatory, but I think he's kidding. That would have been against FAA regulations.

Mike Finger

UT's Taylor out indefinitely; no official diagnosis after X-rays: blog.mysanantonio.com/longhorns/2014…

Michael De Leon

Cuban Being Cuban, Jabs Spurs, Thunder ift.tt/1ujEQs0 #spurs

Jeff McDonald

Poor Matt Bonner. They made him ride in the back of the plane on the way to Minnesota so he wouldn't infect other players.

Jeff McDonald

Belinelli probable to play tonight per Pop, but limited minutes. Bonner still fighting stomach bug and remains out.

Mike Finger

A fracture wouldn't necessarily be a disaster. Healing process is simpler. Sometimes a sprained wrist can linger longer.

Mike Finger

Isaiah Taylor had X-rays on his left wrist at NYC hospital last night. Is there a fracture? UT doesn't want to say yet. Needs more tests.

Mike Finger

Isaiah Taylor (left wrist injury) won't play tonight against Cal.

Dan McCarney

Game No. 12 preview: Spurs (7-4) at Minnesota (3-7) blog.mysanantonio.com/spursnation/20…

Paul Garcia

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.

Quixem Ramirez

It’s Rob Lowe’s world and we are just lucky to live in it. #TXST

Quixem Ramirez

The best sentence in the English language: "Cookies will be distributed in the press box.” It’s not even close.

Quixem Ramirez

If the Bobcats win this game, this will be their first victory in program history without rolls in the press box. This is unprecedented.

Quixem Ramirez

Money Hunter’s tackle wasn’t exactly money. He’s ejected for targeting. #TXST

Quixem Ramirez

I like the way C.J. Best ran away from the defenders instead of into them. Don’t see that enough in the #TXST offense.

Quixem Ramirez

Fumbling the ball for a first down is the definition of #TXSTTrendSetters. Am I doing this right?

Five true champions! RT @KEYESportsBob: baylor loses twice, ksu loses twice, tcu loses twice, ou wins out?

Mike Finger

Meanwhile, Kansas State is dealing a significant (but not fatal!) blow to Texas' Big 12 football championship hopes.

Mike Finger

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.

Jeff McDonald

I was totally going to start Latavius Murray in my fantasy league, assuming I had heard of him.

Quixem Ramirez

Prediction: Arkansas State 38, #TXST 31.

Mike Finger

You should see the 300 recruits rated higher than Isaiah Taylor a couple of years ago.
