Paul Garcia

Parker gets called for the T. Thought he should have been fouled when he drove. SA leads by 9, free Kings FT.

Dan McCarney

That last rebound by Manu...he might have nights where he's out of control and/or shooting poorly, but you can never question the effort.

Paul Garcia

4:07 left in the 4th and the Spurs have a 10 point lead. SA taking an 18-10 scoring edge in the 4th.

Dan McCarney

Ginobili drills the 3, Spurs up 10. Might finally be it, but with this team lately you just never know.

Paul Garcia

And now Manu's heating up. He's got 14 points, who are these guys?

Paul Garcia

Oh hey, a few layups go in and now Parker's jumper just went in. He's got 14, Spurs by 7.

Paul Garcia

Parker now with 12 points, as he just made yet another layup. Something's kicked in this quarter for him.

Paul Garcia

The Spurs' bench is now outscoring the Kings' bench 40-17. Manu with 11 points, Diaw with 7, Beli/Baynes 8 each.

Dan McCarney

And now Manu embellishes contact to induce an offensive foul -- AKA, flopping. Pulling out all the stops tonight!

Dan McCarney

You know who else we've been missing this year: Land Walrus mode Boris Diaw.

Paul Garcia

It's like someone just gave Parker a shot of Espresso. He's looked much more aggressive in this 4th, looks quicker too on his dribble.

Dan McCarney

I don't know what that means, but I get the gist.

Dan McCarney

As our friends at @InfoManu just described Manu's sorcery: OOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH QUE BANDEJA!

Dan McCarney

Oh, vintage Ginobili. Crazy reverse layup in traffic.

Paul Garcia

Also, give Kawhi 17 points.

Paul Garcia

8 points in the second half for Parker now, he's got 10 on the night.

Dan McCarney

Did we mention that DeMarcus Cousins isn't playing?

Dan McCarney

Spurs run a play for Green coming out of the timeout...and he passes up a wide-open 3.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs and #Kings have played 2:23 in 4th quarter without a point scored by either team

Dan McCarney

Approaching Yakety Sax levels in Sacramento. Spurs still up 2.

Paul Garcia

SA shot 46% in 3Q with 7 assists on 10 makes. Parker led team in scoring with 6 points. Kings though shot 59% & had 22-12 edge in paint.

Paul Garcia

3Q: Spurs 80, Kings 78. SAC takes 3Q 32-31. Kawhi 15 points, 4 rebs, 3 ast & 2 blks. Duncan 10 pts. SA bench 33-15 scoring edge.

Dan McCarney

Spurs just cannot pull away. Leading by just 2 entering the 4th quarter in Sacramento. (Which, again, is without DeMarcus Cousins.)

Paul Garcia

Spurs' bench with the 33-11 scoring edge at the moment.

Dan McCarney

Evans v BAYNES would be a decent cage fight.

Paul Garcia

Only Danny Green would still be in a rhythm after sitting for most of the first three quarters of this game.

Dan McCarney

Patty Mills passes up a wide-open 3 in the corner. A small but telling example of the funk this team is in.

Dan McCarney

Tim Duncan has some of the prettiest 3-foot push shots in NBA history.

Paul Garcia

Tony Parker layup in the paint. Good job of waiting to find the right moment to attack the rim.

Paul Garcia

Parker's now got 6 points and 2 dimes after his last feed to Kawhi in the open court. Kawhi with 15 points. SA by 3.

Paul Garcia

Danny Green draws his 4th foul of the game, and there he goes back to the bench.

Dan McCarney

This is how far Tony Parker has fallen: Elliott is rating his misses.

Mike Monroe

Terrrrible foul call on #Kings Jason Thompson, who clearly blocked Splitter dunk attempt

Mike Monroe

Perimeter make for @Tony Parker to start 2nd half at Sleep Train and now 2 FTs ... #Spurs ocuild not have asked for better start to half

Paul Garcia

Kawhi Leonard and Aron Baynes each scored 6 points in the second quarter.

Paul Garcia

It wasn't a pretty shooting 2Q for SA (33%), but they were 13-13 from the FT line that quarter. SAC held to 40% shooting in 2Q w/ 4 TOs

Paul Garcia

The Spurs have outscored the Kings 35-22 since SA was last down 10 in the first quarter.

Mike Monroe

#Spurs close strong against #Kings to take 49-46 lead to halftime locker room; is another 3rd quarter lapse coming?

Dan McCarney

He will celebrate with a cup of fresh goat blood in the locker room.

Paul Garcia

Half: Spurs 49, Kings 46. SA outscores SAC 29-21 in 2Q. Kawhi with 13 points, 4 boards, 2 assists & 2 blocks. SA bench with 23 points

Dan McCarney

Yes, Sacramento let Aron Baynes get behind the defense for a fastbreak dunk.

Jeff McDonald

Could have done without McLemore's buzzer-beater, but Spurs close half strong ... lead 49-46.

Dan McCarney

Duncan reciprocates, hitting BAYNES in stride with an outlet pass for the transition dunk.

Paul Garcia

Duncan outlet to Baynes. Spurs by 5.

Paul Garcia

Patrick scores off the screen with a mid-range jumper. SA by 3 just before the half.

Dan McCarney

Spurs take the lead on the immortal BAYNES-to-Duncan hi-lo.

Dan McCarney

So it's a tie game in Sacramento, 43s all. Spurs shooting 30.2 pct.

Paul Garcia

Tie game: Patty Mills enters too.

Jeff McDonald

Carl Landry, Cousins' replacement, just picked up his fourth foul. Baynes to the line with a shot at a tie.

Paul Garcia

Kawhi with the block on one end, takes it down and dunks it on the other. He's got 13 points.

Jeff McDonald

Kawhi blocks Gay, takes it coast-to-coast for a slam. See if that sparks something.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs have yet to score on three consecutive possessions this entire game.

Dan McCarney

Spurs shooting 31 percent, yet trail the Kings by just two late in the SECOND quarter.

Paul Garcia

Kawhi and Beli run a 2-man pass and drive sequence which ends with Marco getting the three. SA down 2.

Dan McCarney

Tony's season is like Superman 2, when he relinquished his powers to live a mortal life with Lois Lane, and got savagely beaten by truckers.

Dan McCarney

Parker's mojo is so depleted that even his starfish flop has no effect.

Paul Garcia

Parker can't beat Miller 1-on-1 in the open court, turns it over. Kings score on the other end. SA down 8 again.

Mike Monroe

Geezers everywhere proud of Andre Miller, dominating #Spurs at Sleep Train by playing smartest basketball in NBA

Jeff McDonald

Spurs have two field goals through seven minutes of the 2Q, and one of them was Leonard's circus shot from under the rim.

Dan McCarney

Especially if Duncan keeps missing layups.

Dan McCarney

I guess I'll treat that Tweet as a prediction.

Dan McCarney

Midway through the third quarter, Spurs still trail the Cousins-less Kings.

Paul Garcia

4 assists on 11 makes. Yup. RT @blanchardJRB: Spurs in full 1999 playbook mode.

Paul Garcia

Kawhi Leonard now has 11 points in the first half.

Dan McCarney

Feels like Kings are only going to be able to stay in front for so long. But they continue to lead, 31-25 early in the 2nd quarter.

Paul Garcia

Danny Green enters the game. Danny Green gets called for the foul. His 3rd means Green's back on the bench.

Jeff McDonald

No sooner does Danny Green enter than he picks up his third foul on a loose-ball airball.

Paul Garcia

Cory Joseph makin' defensive plays, also pushing the pace each time he's bringing the ball up.

Dan McCarney

Andre Miller has Hall of Fame old man game.

Paul Garcia

After trailing by 10 with 4:38 left in the 1Q, the Spurs' bench ended the quarter on a 6-1 run.

Paul Garcia

1Q: Spurs 20, Kings 25. As starter, Splitter with 2 points, 7 boards & 2 blocks. Kawhi 7 points. SAC shoots 48%, SA 36%.

Mike Monroe

Tiago Splitter has 7 RB, 2 blocks and finally made a shot vs. #Kings (now 1-5) in 1st quarter

Dan McCarney

Haha, Splitter is killing it. Rebounds in a crowd, muscles in the layup and 1. Whatever the Brazilian Wheaties are, he ate some I guess.

Jeff McDonald

OK ... Spurs seeming to find their footing. And now Splitter is actually THE difference. On both ends.

Paul Garcia

Cory gets into the paint, feeds Manu, who feeds a wide-open Beli in the corner...but Beli missed the shot.

Dan McCarney

If he dunks I'm just going to shut the TV off and play Dragon Age.

Jeff McDonald

Splitter's actually making an impact defensively, which seems odd to say considering Kings shooting 99.9999999999%

Dan McCarney

Splitter tossing shots and rebounding like prime Russell.

Jeff McDonald

It's as if Jacob Riis went to watch the stone-cutter at work that day, and the stone-cutter eventually keeled over from exhaustion.

Paul Garcia

The kind of stretch the Spurs are having: Kawhi tried to grab a defensive rebound, but instead he couldn't grab it and it went in the hole.

Paul Garcia

Kawhi's got 7 points now, the rest of the Spurs 5.

Mike Monroe

Prediction: #Kings won't shoot 69 percent for game; #Spurs won't shoot 30 pct. ... but still

Mike Monroe

#Spurs still sputtering, doubled up by #Kings 20-10 despite absence of Boogie and Collison.

Dan McCarney

Make that 20-10. Spurs have given up 20 points in 6 mins to lineup of Landry, Thompson, McLemore, Gay and McCallum.

Paul Garcia

10 point lead for the Kings. Spurs' starters have scored 10 points midway through 1Q, SAC shooting 69%, 10-4 edge in paint scoring.

Jeff McDonald

And now Spurs fall into their nightly double-digit hole.

Dan McCarney

On the no Boogie front, Sacramento leads 18-10.

Jeff McDonald

Kings open shooting 80 percent, lead by 8.

Jeff McDonald

Unique vantage point her in Sac, tucked into corner behind Spurs' bench. Kind of like it. http://t.co/Kr1fTe8bkb

Paul Garcia

Kawhi has 5 of the Spurs' first 10 points, but Sac has already made 5 of their first 7 shots. Kings up 8-4 in paint, 12-10 lead for SAC

Dan McCarney

If you're just tuning in, DeMarcus Cousins is out with injury. So if the Spurs can't win this one...

Dan McCarney

If they're having a tough time now, after one of the most artistic titles ever, imagine once Duncan, Ginobili, Popovich, etc. are gone.

Dan McCarney

And another one: (Forget) This Season

Paul Garcia

1-3-1 zone defense on Sac's 3rd offensive possession.

Paul Garcia

Kawhi sinks his first three. Parker found him on the break at the right wing three.

Dan McCarney

Handles I have just seen: (Forget) Tony Parker and #FreeCojo. The struggle in San Antonio is real...
