Daye is Kevin Durant's clone, minus the athleticism and shooting touch.
The Suns are running with impunity. Already with 6 fastbreak points, up 15-9.
Danny Green turns it over on behind-the-back pass, leading to Plumlee alley-oop. Marco Belinelli immediately to the table.
3-pointer and postup fadeaway for Leonard so far.
Even Gerald Green's missed layups are spectacular.
Channing Frye has neon orange and silver KDs. Absolutely fantastic.
Gerald Green Manus the opening tip.
Didn't want to see anything, didn't want to hear anything. Just start the game already...
Never noticed this before, but Pop spent the whole pregame cacophony thing bent over plugging his ears on the bench. Because, of course.
No Tim. No Manu. Adam Silver in the house. We could have some fun with that.
Silver was in town today sitting in on quarterly meeting of Spurs' ownership group. Making the rounds, basically.
Oh hi, Commissioner Silver.
Forgot to tweet this earlier, but Adam Silver's in the house tonight.
Daye Tripper? Gah!!!!
Let the horrible puns commence. Entertain me.
Brace yourselves...Austin Daye is listed as a starter on the pregame monitor.
Suns: Bledsoe, Green, Tucker, Frye, Plumlee. Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, DAYE!, Splitter.
Spurs v Suns 830pm eastern...tune in
More from orthopedist: In athletes who have Jones fractures fixed with a screw, "they almost always heal and quite rapidly."
Late to the tweet button, but Goran Dragic (ankle) indeed out for Phoenix tonight. Hornacek hopes to have him tomorrow in Dallas.
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.
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
Pop says he's heard nothing to indicate a problem with Duncan's knee, a day after the scare in Dallas.
Pop says decision to sit Duncan and Ginobili against Phoenix "pretty much" made before team took floor in Dallas.
Matt Bonner will not play due to food poisoning. WHAT KIND OF SANDWICH DID HE EAT?!?
Just to be clear, Duncan and Ginobili are resting. Neither are on the official injury list.
Tony Parker (back) will play tonight vs PHX. Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili will not.
Tony Parker will play tonight vs. the Suns, Duncan and Ginobili out per Spurs PR.
Whatever kismet QB debt Texas owed after seven years of Vince Young and Colt McCoy has just about been paid in full.
"For several reasons, a Jones fracture often does not heal," Wikipedia says of Jones fractures. Oh.
The Wikipedia entry (I know, I know) for "Jones fracture," which David Ash has, is not exactly encouraging.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
I'm generally against trying to jigger the first-round matchup. Has a tendency to backfire. Approach games like you would, let chips fall
A Spurs win tonight would sew up No. 1 seed, but would also increase possibility of facing PHX in the first round. Discuss.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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?
I'm assuming no Duncan, Parker and maybe others tonight vs PHX, so good chance Dallas remains in 8 spot at least another day.
Daily Spurs' first-round playoff foe update: Today it would be Dallas.
Odds on Duncan playing Fri. Vs Suns: 100-1 against
Tim Duncan, on hyperextended right knee: 'probably going to swell overnight but I'm fine '
Great win tonight! One more and we clinch the #1. PatricioMolinos y KLeonardo were "en fuegoooo"! Mañana vs Los Soles.
Ganhamos em Dallas, já com clima de playoffs! Great win in Dallas, playoffs atmosphere! Lets keep pushing! http://t.co/iOLajOVA2e
How's this for arbitraty? Leonard is first Spur not named Duncan, Robinson with 16 rebound, 5 assists, 2 steals since Rodman in 1994.
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!
61 victories is tied for third-most in Spurs history. Need two more in last three games to tie franchise record of 63.
Spurs win 109-100. Magic number down to one to clinch home-court edge throughout playoffs. Also 30th road win, a club record.
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.
I think the last time the Mavericks beat the Spurs, Brad Davis went for 32.
Patty Mills will get the well-deserved headlines in this one. But make no mistake: Kawhi Leonard flat wrecked the Mavericks.
Man, didn't realize it was so close.
Not done yet, boys.
32-0, actually. About to be 33-0.
Weirdest Stat of the Year remains alive: Spurs 31-0 when Splitter scores 7 or more this season.
Maybe a little early to call it. But that might do it.
You can get two more shots up Patty before game's end. I have total faith in you.
Kawhi Leonard elbow bleeding; TO for infectious control; SAS 100, DAL 89, with Ellis shooting 1 more FT
Excuse me. THIS month, April 25.
20/13 for Duncan after apparently destroying right knee in first quarter. He will be 38 next month.
Career high 15 boards for Kawhi Leonard.
Kobe is mildly jealous of Patty's green light.
Mills update: 26 points, 21 shots, 30 minutes. Patrick Thrills forever.
Danny Green. Still 100 percent all-time on 3-pointers in which he signals for the ball first.
18/10 -- another double-double for Duncan.
Still a loooooong way to go in Big D. Spurs lead down to 10 after 6-0 Mavs run.
And you get a foul! And you get a foul! And you get a foul!
Parker makes that detergent commercial. Most underrated performance of his career.
Three fouls in the first 90 seconds of the first half for the Spurs. Hard to do.
A W will give the Spurs a franchise-record 30th road victory.
Consider this your obligatory "Spurs almost never lose when leading after three quarters" tweet.
13 points, 12 rebounds, 5 assists, 2 steals for Leonard.
Patty thinks he's open getting out of bed.
Kerr describing the Pacers as if they just had a collective colonoscopy.
24 points, 18 shots in 22 minutes for Mills. Still 17 minutes to play. Anything less than 30/25/30 is a disappointment.
