Dan McCarney

Daye is Kevin Durant's clone, minus the athleticism and shooting touch.

Dan McCarney

The Suns are running with impunity. Already with 6 fastbreak points, up 15-9.

Jeff McDonald

Danny Green turns it over on behind-the-back pass, leading to Plumlee alley-oop. Marco Belinelli immediately to the table.

Dan McCarney

3-pointer and postup fadeaway for Leonard so far.

Dan McCarney

Even Gerald Green's missed layups are spectacular.

Dan McCarney

Channing Frye has neon orange and silver KDs. Absolutely fantastic.

Jeff McDonald

Gerald Green Manus the opening tip.

Dan McCarney

Didn't want to see anything, didn't want to hear anything. Just start the game already...

Dan McCarney

Never noticed this before, but Pop spent the whole pregame cacophony thing bent over plugging his ears on the bench. Because, of course.

Jeff McDonald

No Tim. No Manu. Adam Silver in the house. We could have some fun with that.

Jeff McDonald

Silver was in town today sitting in on quarterly meeting of Spurs' ownership group. Making the rounds, basically.

Dan McCarney

Oh hi, Commissioner Silver.

Jeff McDonald

Forgot to tweet this earlier, but Adam Silver's in the house tonight.

Dan McCarney

Daye Tripper? Gah!!!!

Dan McCarney

Let the horrible puns commence. Entertain me.

Dan McCarney

Brace yourselves...Austin Daye is listed as a starter on the pregame monitor.

Jeff McDonald

Suns: Bledsoe, Green, Tucker, Frye, Plumlee. Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, DAYE!, Splitter.

Danny Green

Spurs v Suns 830pm eastern...tune in

Mike Finger

More from orthopedist: In athletes who have Jones fractures fixed with a screw, "they almost always heal and quite rapidly."

Jeff McDonald

Late to the tweet button, but Goran Dragic (ankle) indeed out for Phoenix tonight. Hornacek hopes to have him tomorrow in Dallas.

Mike Finger

And now, some hope for UT: Talked to an orthopedist who did Jones fracture surgery on a college DB. Kid was back playing in 5 weeks.

Mike Finger

More on Jones fractures: In most cases they're treated with a cast. Ash will have surgery. One possible reason for that is to speed recovery

Dan McCarney

Live updates: Parker in, Duncan and Ginobili out vs. Suns #spurs #spursnation blog.mysanantonio.com/spursnation/20…

Jeff McDonald

Pop says he's heard nothing to indicate a problem with Duncan's knee, a day after the scare in Dallas.

Jeff McDonald

Pop says decision to sit Duncan and Ginobili against Phoenix "pretty much" made before team took floor in Dallas.

Jeff McDonald

Matt Bonner will not play due to food poisoning. WHAT KIND OF SANDWICH DID HE EAT?!?

Dan McCarney

Just to be clear, Duncan and Ginobili are resting. Neither are on the official injury list.

Mike Monroe

Tony Parker returning for #Spurs v suns but Duncan, Ginobili will sit

Jeff McDonald

Tony Parker (back) will play tonight vs PHX. Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili will not.

Dan McCarney

Tony Parker will play tonight vs. the Suns, Duncan and Ginobili out per Spurs PR.

Mike Finger

Whatever kismet QB debt Texas owed after seven years of Vince Young and Colt McCoy has just about been paid in full.

Mike Finger

"For several reasons, a Jones fracture often does not heal," Wikipedia says of Jones fractures. Oh.

Mike Finger

The Wikipedia entry (I know, I know) for "Jones fracture," which David Ash has, is not exactly encouraging.

Mike Finger

If you were setting odds on who will make the most QB starts for UT in 2014, who's your favorite? Ash, Swoopes, Heard, Wittek all 3-to-1?

Mike Finger

Texas says QB David Ash has a broken left foot and will miss the rest of the spring. He's expected to be back for preseason practice.

Dan McCarney

The moment you've all been waiting for...my 2013-14 Scorpions season preview. blog.mysanantonio.com/scorpions/2014…

Jeff McDonald

Jeez. I don't even have Dirk on one of my All-NBA teams, either. I'm going to have to rethink this. Forward is freaking tough.

Jeff McDonald

You know second round and WCF are going to be a battle royale. In a perfect world, want 1st-round matchup that requires least heavy lifting.

Jeff McDonald

I think we might see a skeleton crew tonight, but it will have nothing to do with trying to target the Mavs. A rest night from jump street.

Jeff McDonald

I'm generally against trying to jigger the first-round matchup. Has a tendency to backfire. Approach games like you would, let chips fall

Jeff McDonald

A Spurs win tonight would sew up No. 1 seed, but would also increase possibility of facing PHX in the first round. Discuss.

Jeff McDonald

When I finalize my ballot, I'll post my votes to the blog. I don't think they'll be all that controversial. Except Austin Daye for MVP.

Jeff McDonald

I've occasionally used my COY vote to go to the coach of the "Hey, that team didn't totally suck as bad as we thought" team. Not this year.

Jeff McDonald

Or rather, that any players had a year good enough to supplant the guys I've for now got ahead of them on the ballot.

Jeff McDonald

I mean, Spurs might set franchise record for wins ... and I can't mount a convincing argument any of their players had all-NBA year.

Jeff McDonald

Filling out preliminary All-NBA ballot ... If Spurs have NBA's top record & zero All-NBA teamers, doesn't that kinda have to make Pop COY?

Manu Ginobili

GENIAL! No se pierdan este espectacular vídeo de sólo 7'! Louie Schwartzberg: "Milagros Ocultos del Mundo Natural". ted.com/talks/louie_sc…

Dan McCarney

Duncan a first-team pick MT @Kevin Pelton It's the annual Per Diem All-Defensive Teams es.pn/1kdFXso (In)

Dan McCarney

Not sure how accurate the data is, but Leonard's hands are comparable to Chamberlain, O'Neal, Russell and Yao. insidehoops.com/forum/showthre…

Mike Monroe

'Very scary' moment in #Spurs win that has them one W away from securing top seed expressnews.com/sports/spurs/a…

Jeff McDonald

I'm assuming no Duncan, Parker and maybe others tonight vs PHX, so good chance Dallas remains in 8 spot at least another day.

Jeff McDonald

Daily Spurs' first-round playoff foe update: Today it would be Dallas.

Spurs 109, Dallas 100: Averting disaster in Big D #spurs #spursnation blog.mysanantonio.com/spursnation/20…

Danny Green

I kno I'm late but #tbt lol Carolina boy since I was a youngin #youseeit instagram.com/p/mo5qnCS68h/

Mike Monroe

Watching Duncan walk to Spurs bus after game must have been like @Jeff McDonald watching me walk to my car after games

Mike Monroe

Odds on Duncan playing Fri. Vs Suns: 100-1 against

Mike Monroe

Tim Duncan, on hyperextended right knee: 'probably going to swell overnight but I'm fine '

Manu Ginobili

Great win tonight! One more and we clinch the #1. PatricioMolinos y KLeonardo were "en fuegoooo"! Mañana vs Los Soles.

Tiago Splitter

Ganhamos em Dallas, já com clima de playoffs! Great win in Dallas, playoffs atmosphere! Lets keep pushing! http://t.co/iOLajOVA2e

Dan McCarney

How's this for arbitraty? Leonard is first Spur not named Duncan, Robinson with 16 rebound, 5 assists, 2 steals since Rodman in 1994.

Boris Diaw

Les insomniaques, merci pour vos messages et spécialement @Lucas__Blc Repos maintenant pour un match important demain pour la 1ère place!

Boris Diaw

Winning in Dallas is always important for us and our fans as it's Texas rivalry ! Let's rest for tomorrow game and secure the 1st spot!

Dan McCarney

61 victories is tied for third-most in Spurs history. Need two more in last three games to tie franchise record of 63.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs win 109-100. Magic number down to one to clinch home-court edge throughout playoffs. Also 30th road win, a club record.

Dan McCarney

I don't pay any attention to raw plus/minus in single games, but that's a crazy figure in a non-blowout. Not sure I've ever seen that.

Mike Monroe

Final in Dallas: #Spurs 109, #Mavs 100

Jeff McDonald

I think the last time the Mavericks beat the Spurs, Brad Davis went for 32.

Mike Monroe

Magic number for #Spurs to lock up home court throughout playoffs about to be 1, barring epic collapse in final :32.2. ... #TracyMcGradyGame

Jeff McDonald

Patty Mills will get the well-deserved headlines in this one. But make no mistake: Kawhi Leonard flat wrecked the Mavericks.

Dan McCarney

Man, didn't realize it was so close.

Jeff McDonald

Not done yet, boys.

Dan McCarney

32-0, actually. About to be 33-0.

Dan McCarney

Weirdest Stat of the Year remains alive: Spurs 31-0 when Splitter scores 7 or more this season.

Jeff McDonald

Maybe a little early to call it. But that might do it.

Dan McCarney

You can get two more shots up Patty before game's end. I have total faith in you.

Mike Monroe

Kawhi Leonard elbow bleeding; TO for infectious control; SAS 100, DAL 89, with Ellis shooting 1 more FT

Dan McCarney

Excuse me. THIS month, April 25.

Dan McCarney

20/13 for Duncan after apparently destroying right knee in first quarter. He will be 38 next month.

Jeff McDonald

Career high 15 boards for Kawhi Leonard.

Dan McCarney

Kobe is mildly jealous of Patty's green light.

Dan McCarney

Mills update: 26 points, 21 shots, 30 minutes. Patrick Thrills forever.

Jeff McDonald

Danny Green. Still 100 percent all-time on 3-pointers in which he signals for the ball first.

Dan McCarney

18/10 -- another double-double for Duncan.

Dan McCarney

Still a loooooong way to go in Big D. Spurs lead down to 10 after 6-0 Mavs run.

Mike Monroe

And justlikethat it's a ball game again in Dallas after 6-0 #Mavs run in just 38 seconds; SAS 88, DAL 78

Jeff McDonald

And you get a foul! And you get a foul! And you get a foul!

Mike Monroe

Another double-double for Duncan, now with 18-10 vs. #Mavs.

Dan McCarney

Parker makes that detergent commercial. Most underrated performance of his career.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs now 13-27 on 3s after @Manu Ginobili long ball extends lead to 88-72

Jeff McDonald

Three fouls in the first 90 seconds of the first half for the Spurs. Hard to do.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs have made 12 of 25 3-pointers; @Patrick Mills 6-9, @Danny Green 4-8

Dan McCarney

A W will give the Spurs a franchise-record 30th road victory.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs take 83-72 lead to 4th quarter; they're 50-1 when leading after 3 periods #LetsGoHome

Dan McCarney

Consider this your obligatory "Spurs almost never lose when leading after three quarters" tweet.

Dan McCarney

13 points, 12 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals for Leonard.

Dan McCarney

Patty thinks he's open getting out of bed.

Dan McCarney

Kerr describing the Pacers as if they just had a collective colonoscopy.

Dan McCarney

24 points, 18 shots in 22 minutes for Mills. Still 17 minutes to play. Anything less than 30/25/30 is a disappointment.
