I hope the drunk guys behind us pass out soon.
Oh God, they're getting more beer...
This is hard to do, but RJ got nothing but glass on a 2-foot runner.
Argentine dart pass to a slashing Frenchman. Manu with the straight line bullet to Boris for a layup. Spurs by 14...again in 4 days.
OK, it took almost 3 years to get here, including 3 long postseason runs, but we have reached peak drunk moron in seats behind press row.
Who Did It Worse: Splitter's Euro Step or Gortat's Dream Shake?
Why do they boo Richard Jefferson here? He didn't do anything to anyone.
Poor Richard Jefferson. Cascade of boos upon his introduction.
Past couple games, Ginobili has been coming in for Leonard (a later sub) than for Green.
Spurs’ defense holds Mavs to 34% shooting in 1Q with 3 turnovers. Ellis scored 2 points on 1/4 shooting.
1Q: Spurs 28, Mavs 18. SA shot 50% with 8 assists on 11 makes and just 2 TOs. Duncan/Kawhi/ Beli with as many points as Dallas - 18.
Spurs were up 29-17 after one in Dallas and totally fell apart. So, as always, Winston Wolf Rule is in play.
A weird stat, but I would love to know what the record is.
15th straight game with a double-digit lead for Los Spurs.
Game 15 in a row the Spurs have held a double digit lead.
Spurs fans behind press row encourage Dirk to keep shooting open jumpers after he misses. Does not seem to be a wise plan.
Kawhi and Duncan have 13 combined points late in the first. SA with 7 assists on 9 makes. 2:09 left in 1Q, SA 23-18 lead.
Another stat, via FSNSW: Since the All-Star break, the worst 3-ball shooter in the NBA is ... Monta Ellis. Should be easy to guard thenn.
The Spurs kept Ellis scoreless for the first 7.5 minutes with Kawhi on him. The minute Marco got switched onto Ellis, Ellis basket.
Spurs ran a 1-3-1 zone defense and forced DAL into bad shot. Kawhi got a layup on the other end.
Bobo whips pass by Chander's ear to the cutting Duncan, easy layup. Spurs lead 13-9, and Carlisle calls TO.
It's not a clear path. Let's move on.
Dirk has a very underrated stink face.
Danny Green’s throwing semi-no look passes now...
Surprised Ellis' no-look save didn't just go into the basket somehow ...
Tim Duncan on a poster, Chandler Parsons edition.
Splitter almost loses the ball, but he recovers and finds Kawhi in the corner for three off a Duncan hammer screen.
And the battle for 6th place is on ...
Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Duncan, Splitter. Mavericks: Rondo, Ellis, Parsons, Dirk, Chandler.
And my source on that is his contract.
In other words, the suggestion that Barnes can guarantee himself $1.75M by resigning before April 1 is inaccurate.
Patty Mills would be the Michael Jordan of that stat.
Pop's making north of $10 million this year, while the rest of us are circling the drain in a dying industry. So who's really clever?
Apparently, Richard Jefferson IS active tonight, per Tricky Rick Carlisle
Now, in Mack Brown's case, they worked out an agreement in which he ended up getting his buyout amount. But that's not guaranteed.
To clarify a misconception I've seen out there: Barnes contract specifically says if he resigns, he's owed nothing. Buyout doesn't apply.
Tonight's fun fact: Spurs are 1-0 against Dallas this season when holding Monta Ellis under 38 points.
Sick kicks Patty Mills will wear tonight. http://t.co/xkF1MPG70P
"See how smart you are? Your article is going to be really good!"
Pop compares Ellis to Stoudemire: "Just give him his 30." It was then pointed out this wouldn't be a good idea for tonight's game..."
Pop on lineup data: "We see them all the time. It's part of the analytics." (Hall of Fame eye roll.)
Pop on journalism: "I don't think about the things you guys think about. You have to be clever. I can just be dumb."
"Oh crap, did I turn the iron off?" -- Scott Kelly, today
Unnamed people expect an outcome that almost everyone considers a strong possibility. Give me my scoop.
The Spurs announced Aron Baynes will be out tonight vs. The Mavs with the right ankle injury
Gameday! Another tough one coming! vs Mavs, tonight! http://t.co/x802iSUGiJ
Outro jogão, dessa vez contra os Dallas Mavericks! Bora torcer galera!!! http://t.co/MwqwHRkfy1
Not sure where McW's seat in the DKR press box was all these years, because he was never in it. He stood in a corner watching every game.
25 years after "Shock the Nation," former Texas football coach David McWilliams officially retiring from Texas athletic department.
Bae tucking me in. Goodnight world!! http://t.co/bPzpLrTL6K
Hey Hollywood ... if you're still casting for the role of "Seth Rogen stunt double," Stainbrook is now available.
In the offseason, Matt Stainbrook bounty hunts Dog the Bounty Hunter.
Matt Stainbrook is 32 seconds away from returning to his day job: Selling you perverts your pornography.
Myles Davis!! Summertime!!!
Matt Stainbrook looks like that SNL sketch where Chris Farley was supposed to be an Olympic figure skater.
Stainbrook would love to stick around for the end of this one, but he's gotta go deliver a pizza real quick. BRB.
Need to get back on my bully.
First time Mack Brown's job was in trouble, he dumped Greg Davis. Bought him three years.
Calipari empties the bench by playing the student section.
West Virginia cracked 20! Play the fight song!
Welp, Kentucky's in trouble now.
The fact an Uber driver can be a competent college basketball player is not a great advertisement for the quality of college basketball.
Patterson once made a similar demand of Herb Sendek at Arizona State. Sendek hired new assistants, and stayed put.
Can confirm Steve Patterson has asked Rick Barnes to make changes to his staff in order to stay at Texas, as reported by AAS/DMN.
Thought about watching West Virginia play Kentucky. Decided to go out and watch a dandelion fight a lawn mower instead.
Chris Webber is older today than Len Elmore was in 1993.
No Diggity is as old today as Hotel California was in 1996.
Regarding all of the Sam Jackson ads: do y'all realize Pulp Fiction is older today than Godfather II was in 1994?
Gave it away smh
Rick Barnes was going to leave his players a fruit basket in his will ... but figuring out how to make baskets has never been his thing
Since Feb. 27, Spurs have won 11 of 14 games and outscored opponents by plus-188 (avg margin of 13.4 ppg). That's, you know, OK.
Interesting: Spurs have third-best SRS (ave. point diff. + strength of schedule) behind GS and LAC, per Basketball Reference.
Kyle Anderson re-assigned to D-League. Believe this is his fifth stint.
