Brian Mahoney

Tim Duncan will play in just his 5th Christmas game. Shows how much the Spurs were ignored for marquee TV time during much of his career.

Quixem Ramirez

"The Spurs are dead" narrative has to be the most pointless narrative in professional sports.

Kris Willis

Payne helps Spurs to 10th straight win sbnation.com/e/7195866

Quixem Ramirez

The Spurs aren't the Spurs yet. We also haven't seen the full Spurs in uniform. Until we do, take their performance with some grains of salt

Quixem Ramirez

People said the Spurs were dead in 2009. And 2010. And 2011. And 2012. And 2013. WHY HAVEN'T PEOPLE LEARNED THEIR LESSON YET?!

Sam Amick

Lakers coach Byron Scott indicates he may rest Kobe for a game or two -Spurs style - to help him get his legs back. Has to sleep on it.

Kris Willis

Broadcast says Austin leading Rio Grande 103-92 at the end of the 3rd. Boxscore has Spurs up 107-98

Kris Willis

Also a recap of Payne’s game with the Austin Spurs

Ben Bolch

Spurs have already announced Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard out for game against Clippers on Monday.

Royce Young

Memphis knocks off the Warriors and Spurs, then gets trounced by Bulls and Cavs. The best of times, the worst of times.

Kris Willis

Payne is at the table for the Spurs

Emiliano Carchia

Spurs without Parker and Leonard on Monday vs. Clippers sportando.com/en/usa/nba/145…

Jeff McDonald

New game, same injury report for Spurs: Kawhi Leonard, Tony Parker and Patty Mills out for Monday against Clippers.

Paul Garcia

In December, the Spurs' Big 3 has consisted of Tim Duncan (19.1 points), Danny Green (15.1 points) and Manu Ginobili (15.1 points).

Quixem Ramirez

Leonard (hand), Parker (hamstring), Mills (shoulder) ruled out against Clippers. Spurs is in the midst of a four-game losing streak.

Paul Garcia

The Spurs announce Tony Parker, Kawhi Leonard, and Patty Mills will all be out tomorrow vs. Clippers.

Paul Garcia

One would infer Pop wasn't thrilled about this play last night in the third quarter. Spurs vs. Mavs 12-20-2014 vine.co/v/OX6K1VvxgjA

Bill Oram

Cool scene pregame in Sacramento: Carlos Boozer chatting with Spurs scout Trajan Langdon. The two pioneering Alaskan hoopers.

Jason Lieser

#Heat injuries/issues this year: bone spurs in toe, flu, cold, dislocated finger, severe foot blister, toenails ripped off.

Paul Garcia

Also looks like the Spurs once more ran a lot of their 1-3-1 Defensive set. As Austin Daye recently told me, it's a set to use when..

Jeff McDonald

Spurs must win at least 2 of next 5 games to avoid first losing December since 1996-97, which was also their last December w/o Tim Duncan.

Paul Garcia

16 different starting lineups in their first 28 games pretty much explains the Spurs' 17-11 start. Creating consistency & rhythm is tough

Dwain Price

"They did exactly what was expected. After a long game they tried 2 junk up the game n they were successful doing it.'' -- Dirk on the Spurs

Kris Willis

Payne, Austin Spurs go for 10th straight win sbnation.com/e/7194274

Zach Lowe

Loved DAL putting Rondo in center of Spurs zone last night. Hard to read much more into game given zone and weird lineups. Great Monta game

Alex Kennedy

The Blazers look amazing right now. They just won a 3OT game against the Spurs last night and then beat up the Pelicans, 114-88, tonight.

Jeff McDonald

In this West, "Meh, nothing matters at all in December" is as erroneous a response to Spurs' struggles as "OMG the sky is falling."

Mike Mazzeo

Sees Mavs beat Spurs in Rondo debut. Thinks impressive. Checks box score. Realizes Pop rested everyone. Wonders what Pop could do w/ Sixers.

Mark Followill

Mavs finish game on 13-4 run, pull away from Spurs to win 99-93. Monta takes over, no surprise. He matches season hi with 38, 13 in 4th.

Jim Eichenhofer
