My Italian colleague Riccardo Pratesi gave me a heads up about a music video that's dropping (is that the word the kids use these days?) there today. It's a rap video by an artist called "Ghemon" and it features our Italian, Marco Belinelli. Enjoy. Pounding the Rock

If Racer was "actually coordinating its motion" with Belinelli's, then let's thank heaven that the robot only has one "hand" and doesn't know how to dance. I'm sure Comau wouldn't have wanted to deal with a $15,000 (or €11,982) fine just for making a commercial. The robot appears to have performed admirably enough in the shooting competition against Belinelli, who ranked fifth in the NBA in 3-point accuracy last season and has made five of his first eight 3-point tries for San Antonio thus far this season, but for me, Racer's most impressive feature was the ability to throw decent bounce passes.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich admitted he is getting antsy for a loss. He'll have to wait. Marco Belinelli scored 18 points and San Antonio never trailed after its opening possession, extending its winning streak to 17 games with a 96-80 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night. The Spurs once again used fluid passing and tireless player movement to overwhelm an opponent. San Antonio finished with 24 assists while going 37 for 78 from the field in snapping New Orleans' five-game winning streak. "They move around a lot, and run their sets hard," Pelicans guard Brian Roberts said. "Whatever they're running, they are moving constantly. It puts pressure on a defense to play 24 seconds worth."
