Wow, interesting play by Anderson. Got the rebound, called for isolation, posted and scored. He's got 9 points.
And, how could I overlook, 4 personal fouls. He's doing it all tonight at the AT&T...
The Boogie: 27 points (10-12), 10 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, 7 turnovers, 1 block in 31 minutes.
3Q: Preseason Spurs 77, Kings 78. SA shooting 44%, SAC 52%. SA outscored SAC 28-18. Boogie 27 points, Ayres 7 of his 11 points in 3Q
Strong run for the Spurs to cut what had been a 16-point Kings lead down to 1, 78-77, entering the 4th quarter. BUCKLE UP!!!
Kyle Anderson as Boris Diaw: Drives into traffic with those long strides, draws D, spoon feeds Baynes underneath for the layup.
Spurs are within 78-77 heading to 4Q. Trailed by as many as 16.
Slo-Mo there. Just drove into the paint with a hesitation move, drew two defenders, and fed Baynes under the rim for a layup.
Hey, Manu scored. On a goal tend.
Manu finally gets on the board. Because some dude goal-tended him.
Despite playing short-handed and being all sorts of horrific for spurts, Spurs trail only 75-70 in 3Q.
And now Anderson shoots a three from the corner and is fouled by Rudy Gay. Gay wasn't too happy about the ref calling the foul.
Ginobili admits he's still out-of-whack basketball wise. Still ... 0 for 9 is yikes
Good sequence set up by Anderson there. Drove in, found Bryce at the three, who kicked it to Daye in the corner for three.
Oof. Cousins up to 26 points on 10 for 11 in 25 minutes.
DeMarcus Cousins is having one of those games in NBA 2K15 where you know you're going to score over 25 points before the game starts.
Always reassuring, what with Ebola and ISIS and all the madness, to look over and see Dave Robinson munching his popcorn in the second row.
DeMarcus Cousins has four fouls and all of them are at the offensive end and he is not a fan of that.
Jeff Ayres gets to the line, he's got 7 points in the quarter, 11 in the game.
JaMychal Green just did to Rudy Gay what that woman just did to her date on the Kiss Me cam.
JaMychal Green gets an applause from the AT&T Center after swatting Rudy Gay's shot to the 4th row.
Speaking of which, isn't Mr. Fantastic about the most egotistical superhero name ever?
Parker throws ball into 5th row, then stares Marco Belinelli down because he can't elongate his body like Mr. Fantastic. TO No. 14.
Jeff Ayres gets the great hustle clap from Pop as he hustled to get a steal off a pass and Boogie got called for the offensive foul.
Dude just got Dikembe Mutombo-into-the-10th-row blocked on the Kiss Cam. And he got her a courtside seat, too.
And we have our second exasperated Popovich TO after Spurs beaten downcourt for transition layup. Kings lead 64-54, 10:26 3Q.
Spurs are running JaMychal at the three though, first time tonight. He has to guard Rudy Gay. Good test for JaMychal in next minutes
And there's Green, scores with a tip-in. He has 12 points.
JaMychal Green gets the second half start. Led the team in scoring in first half with 10 points in just 7 minutes of play.
If Hammer released a new album today, it would be called "Please Hammer Don't Default on That Loan."
Cousins also has 3 assists, 2 steals, 1 block and 4 turnovers. Heading for epic stat line.
You know Hammer is gangster, because he refuses to completely spell out 2 Legit 2 Quit.
Half: Preseason Spurs 49, Kings 60. Boogie 19 points. JaMychal Green leads SA with 10 points, Cotton with 7 points.
Now they're playing a song from my second-favorite gangster rapper, MC Hammer.
Halftime: Kings lead 60-49. Cousins crushing Duncan-less frontline with 19 points, 7 rebounds. Spurs with 12 TOs. J Green leads with 10 pts.
Baris from three, takes the Kings' lead down from 16 to 13 in final minute before half.
Diaw drills a wing 3, Spurs still trailing 60-47.
Sacramento on a 20-2 run over the last five minutes, so ...
Manu really forcing it. Nearly turns it over on lob to Diaw. (Yes, a lob to Diaw.) Finally does on shovel pass in traffic to Ayres.
Kings back up by 11, after putting in their starters.
Vast majority of players ignore courtside chatter. Boris engages in conversations.
Cousins up to 17 points (6-6), 4 rebounds, 2 assists in 14 minutes. (Expletive) he's good.
Appears the alley-oop pass is not in Danny Green's skills set. His lob to the wide-open Aron Baynes soars a good 10 feet over his head.
DeMarcus Cousins is a tough cover anyway. He's impossible for the Spurs' to defend without Duncan and Splitter available.
Still a two-point game, Kings leading 44-42
Spurs started off pretty clean but are now up to 10 turnovers with 5:39 left in the 2nd quarter.
7 points now for Bryce Cotton, the young rookie nails a 3-point attempt in transition.
The Other Green up to 10 points after and-1 putback. Spurs have crawled ahead by a point in this pretend game.
Who just grabbed an offensive board and score with and and-1 opp? You guessed it, JaMychal Green. He's got 10 points now.
And now J Green muscles inside for a three-point play. Makes the bonus, that's 10 points in 7 minutes.
7 points now for JaMychal Green in the first half as he makes 1 of 2 free throws.
"If you're gonna play in Texas, you gotta have a fiddle in your pants ..." --- you're telling me this is NOT the correct lyric?
Bryce Cotton with back-to-back baskets. 1st, mid-range contested jumper, then just drove into the paint for the layup with contact.
Not sure what it means when Spurs are within 2 points, JaMychal Green and Bryce Cotton have been their best players and this isn't Las Vegas
Wow, Reggie Evans just POPPED Ginobili with a screen. Didn't even see it coming. Offensive foul tho...not sure about that one.
1Q: Preseason Spurs 27, Kings 31. Boogie 13 points, Parker 9 points. JaMychal Green 6 points. SAC shooting 65%, SA 43%.
Kings lead Spurs 31-27 after 1Q. DeMarcus Cousins has an estimated four billion points.
End of 1: Kings lead 31-27. Cousins with 13/4. Parker leads the Spurs with 9 points (3-3) and two assists. Rest of team is 6-18.
Boogie jabbering at the ref after dubious foul call on the Kings: "That's two blocks at the rim. Stop it."
With 0 of 4 start, Ginobili up (or down?) to 4-of-19 shooting this preseason
JaMychal again, this time bursts into the open court after Boogie free throws. Teammates found Green as he drew the foul. Lots of energy
JaMychal Green is going to be a heck of an intriguing prospect for the Austin Spurs this season. I mean this as a compliment.
Spurs get a steal on the inbounds pass, Marco feeds Jeff Ayres for the one handed slam - fans go nuts.
That jumper by JaMycahl Green. Really good release, just made sideline mid range shot.
Second mid-range J of the quarter for J Green. Too bad the Spurs don't have a spot; he'd be nice to take a flyer on.
Coaches huddle during last timeout consisted of conversation between Pop, Messina, Boylen, Udoka, & Tim Duncan.
There's JaMycahl Green's mid-range jumper that's been kind of consistent considering it's the preseason.
JaMychal Green and Bryce Cotton getting some first-quarter run.
Bryce Cotton and JaMychal Green getting some first quarter minutes with 4 minutes left on the clock.
Kings shooting 90% (9 of 10). That will win a lot of preseason games.
New AT&T Center DJ playing a hit song from my favorite gangster rapper, Will Smith.
Nice pump fake into a midrange jumper by Ben McLemore there over Danny Green. Really solid shooting form.
Pop getting himself into regular season form, calls semi-angry timeout after defensive breakdown. Spurs trail 18-12 midway through 1Q.
This Spurs starting five getting worked over defensively ... with no Leonard, Duncan, or Splitter it's what you expect
Now it's "Good hustle Boogie!" and you don't hear that every day so I'll allow it...
Going to be awesome having a UK fan sitting two seats away yelling "You da man Boogie!" for the next 2 1/2 hours...
Spurs start shooting 12% from the floor, Kings 100%. SAC leads by 9.
Anderson with the straightaway 3 for SA's first points. If he can hit that consistently...
I know it's just pr5e-season but Kyle Anderson seems very confident shooting the 3-ball
Diaw finds Anderson at the top of the 3-point arc, Kyle nails his first long range shot.
This Baynes - Boogie matchup could end up being interesting...
Boogie Cousins in the house tonight, author of one of the great quotes in NBA history, to Tim Duncan: "(Expletive) you're good."
Kyle Anderson has a fun assignment tonight, defending Rudy Gay.
So it appears like no Bonner tonight and why are we even here?
Duncan/bacon (nice combo)
Then again, last year Jeff Ayres would also work on his 3-point shooting in warm-ups and never took an attempt.
Don't know if he'll do it in a game just yet, but Baynes was heading out to the 3-point line during shoot-around. Made a few, missed a few.
