Jeff McDonald

Phoenix coming unraveled. And Leonard makes another OMG play. And-one could cut deficit to one.

Dan McCarney

The freakish limbs of Kawhi Leonard. Gerald Green wraps him up on the break, and he still converts the layup, and 1.

Mike Monroe

News: Commish Adam Silver just told #Spurs broadcasters NBA "might move" on playoff format to go to top 16 teams, sted of 8 per conference

Dan McCarney

Green's running floater off glass, which is like a combo of his three worst shots, ties his career-high with 28.

Jeff McDonald

Danny Green going all Corey Brewer. Up to 28 in 3Q.

Dan McCarney

Enjoying talking about what a freak Eric Bledsoe is with @Matthew_Tynan

Jeff McDonald

Suns haven't had a field goal in over three minutes. If not for foul shots, Spurs would be in front.

Dan McCarney

Parker suddenly looking pretty fantastic with 14 points in six minutes to start the third quarter.

Jeff McDonald

Second-half Tony Parker needs to show up for the playoffs. Best he's looked since maybe Miami game.

Dan McCarney

He got called for the foul, but Leonard and Gerald Green above the rim was worth the price of admission. Looked like a lot of ball...

Dan McCarney

Could Danny Green go for 40 in an NBA game? He's up to 26 in 23 minutes with 19 to go...

Jeff McDonald

Spurs have it down to 4, thanks to big 3Q from Parker and Danny Green. Spurs fans, hoping to clinch against the Lakers on last day, pout.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs had the deficit, once 21, cut to six a second ago. Fast-paced Suns have it back to double-digits already.

Dan McCarney

Green on Green crime. Danny's got 23, Gerald has 20.

Dan McCarney

Danny's career-high is 28.

Jeff McDonald

Danny Green's picked a night to go ape.

Jeff McDonald

Wish @Mike Monroe was courtside. So I could tweet: Who's that bald guy sitting in front of @Mike Monroe? You'll see what I mean in a bit.

Dan McCarney

Its the NBA commissioner. http://t.co/Dmve8Ncrfd

Jeff McDonald

Plus, if you could go into the final day with at least the *option* of resting certain guys, wouldn't you want it? Pop would.

Jeff McDonald

Because you never know what's going to happen in an NBA game.

Jeff McDonald

I'm saying, there's danger in line of thinking "hey, we've got the Lakers on the schedule, so this is already sewn up" that some fans have.

Jeff McDonald

Suns lead Spurs with 62-49 at half. Phoenix tough to stop, on account of Eric Bledsoe can get any shot he wants at any time.

Dan McCarney

Danny Green has 19 points on 7 for 10. Everybody else has combined for 30 on 12 for 36.

Jeff McDonald

Holy crap, Gerald Green.

Jeff McDonald

Will be interesting to see how seriously Houston takes that came with Spurs next week. I.E., if Rockets already have No. 4 locked up.

Jeff McDonald

Sure, the Spurs have that hole card of "we can beat the Lakers on the last night to sew up 1 seed." But you really want it to come to that?

Dan McCarney

Gerald Green converts the three-point play, Suns are up to 13 fastreak points, lead 53-39.

Jeff McDonald

Belinelli throws it to Tucker, who throws it ahead to Gerald Green, who Belinelli slaps lightly en route to and-1 layup.

Mike Finger

No surprise here, but Texas announces David Ash received his medical hardship and will be a junior in 2014.

Dan McCarney

Pop couldn't help himself. Suns get a TO to avoid jump ball, just had to go over and discuss it with the officials. Cordially, though.

Dan McCarney

Suns make extra pass, Brown gets a quality look from the corner, and Leonard still blocks it with one of his 11 1/2 inch mitts.

Dan McCarney

Spurs fans booing the officials tonight like this game means something.

Jeff McDonald

Marcus has been the Fredo Morris Brother so far tonight.

Dan McCarney

As @Matthew_Tynan said, Boris has such an interesting and unique and all-around entertaining little skill set.

Dan McCarney

Duncan giving Ayres an extensive tutorial as Jeff heads to the bench.

Dan McCarney

One thing Boris could do...was finger roll. (And devour ham.)

Jeff McDonald

Spurs back w/in single digits, 41-32, after that sequence started by an Ayres block. Mills finished layup amid hand2hand combat w/Ish Smith.

Dan McCarney

Best effort of the night for the Spurs so far comes as Mills sprints across court to help Danny Green up after a foul.

Jeff McDonald

Sometimes explaining this game is easy: Phoenix is shooting 70%. Spurs shooting 33. That's how come Suns up 13 despite seven 1Q turnovers.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs come charging ... only trail by 13 heading to 2Q. Danny Green with eight points in final 1:16 of quarter.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs close 1st vs. #Suns on 7-0 run ... and still trail by 13, 37-24

Jeff McDonald

Down 20 in 1Q. Yowzers.

Dan McCarney

Now the other one throws down an alley oop. Suns by 21, 35-14. Still 1:21 to play in the first quarter.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs have won plenty of games with shorthanded lineup this season. Usually involves shooting better than 26%.

Dan McCarney

One of the Morris boys hits a 3, and the Suns are up 19.

Dan McCarney

Tim's jacket has five buttons on it. Never seen one with more than three. But then, I don't see a lot of 7-footers in dress clothes.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs playing a lot like they know they need only 1 W to lock up WC title and that they play #Lakers at home in season finale

Jeff McDonald

And "by any of this" I mean, Suns about to take 16-point lead less than 10 minutes into this one.

Dan McCarney

Tim Duncan sport coat is happening.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs with no Duncan, thus negating biggest edge. No Manu. TP first game back. Everyone else played last night. Not surprised at any of this

Dan McCarney

This is a coach known to call timeouts after a bad defensive rotation.

Dan McCarney

Pop could not care less about this game. 19-3 Suns run, no timeout.

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?
