Dan McCarney

You might not like Ayres, but Popovich does: "Any coach would like to have him. He tries hard to do anything you ask. He's a class act."

Paul Garcia

Danny Green: "As long as we're moving the ball, we're heading in the right direction."

Dan McCarney

Mike Malone, asked if he felt bad for Popovich dealing with so many preseason injuries: "I feel awful for him and his five championships."

Paul Garcia

Boogie doesn't approve losing to SA 3rd string: "We have to beat them. Second unit and guys trying to make the team. We have to be better."

Mike Monroe

#Spurs rookie Kyle Anderson, on matching up on D against #Kings DeMarcus Cousins: 'I tried to stay out of the way of his elbow pads.'

Kyle Anderson

Leaving dudes hungry but you eatin mr chow dog? @Beltreeee RT @tonyparker32: Me.Chow type of night for me

Boris Diaw

Let's keep on working and get ready for the season. Thanks fans for your messages and supporting us. #GoSpursGo

Dan McCarney

Final box: Cousins got the triple double. 32 pts, 11 rebounds, 10 turnovers.

Paul Garcia

Coach Pop on Jeff Ayres: "Jeff's always upbeat whether he plays 18 minutes or zero. He's a class act."

Jeff McDonald

Matt Bonner textsour @Mike Monroe reason for his absence tonight: Attending grandmother's funeral in New Hampshire.

Paul Garcia

Pop once again in back-to-back games on Kyle Anderson: "He's a really smart player."

Paul Garcia

Pop on Baynes, Ayres vs. Cousins: "I thought Aron and Jeff played really smart in the second half."

Paul Garcia

Kyle Anderson finished with 14 points, 5 boards, 3 steals, and 1 block.

Dan McCarney

Just realized: Joseph didn't even play after big performance the other night.

Dan McCarney

Final: Spurs 106, Sacramento 99. Rallied from 16-point deficit. 18 turnovers, but only 6 in 2nd half. Ayres, 15 pts; J Green/Anderson, 14.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs finish off come-from-behind 106-99 win over Kings. Six players in double figures, led by Jeff Ayres' 15.

Paul Garcia

Despite being down 16 points at one time, the Preseason Spurs make a comeback to defeat the Kings 106-99. Ayres 15 points, Anderson 14.

Dan McCarney

Spurs on verge of finishing this one off, up 106-99, 10.3 seconds left. Anderson, Ayres, Belinelli, J. Green and Daye all with at least 12.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs are up 104-99 on Sacramento, 35.9 seconds away from 1st preseason win over an NBA squad.

Dan McCarney

Epic line for Cousins: 32 pts, 11 rebs, 4 asst, 2 stl, 1 blk, 9 TO, 5 pf (all offensive)

Mike Monroe

Boogie Cousins has 5 fouls vs. #Spurs ... all offensive; 35.9 sec. left, SAS 104, SAC 99

Jeff McDonald

When you have four offensive fouls, sure go ahead and run over Jeff Ayres with the game on the line, Boogie

Paul Garcia

Boogie called for his 5th offensive foul of the night.

Paul Garcia

Now Ayres with the pass to Beli, who cut to the rim for the layup and foul. Spurs 102-99

Paul Garcia

Gay beats Anderson under the rim, Kyle forced to foul. Spurs lead 100-99 with 1:18 left.

Dan McCarney

Cousins dunks, 32 in 34, 12 for 14 shooting.

Dan McCarney

Closing lineup: Cotton, Belinelli, Ayres, Daye, Anderson.

Dan McCarney

Boogie inside, and that's 30 in 33.

Mike Monroe

Slo-Mo Anderson with a steal and end-to-end drive for bucket-and-one to give #Spurs 100-93 lead with 2:32 left vs. #Kings.

Dan McCarney

Hits and the Spurs lead 100-93...

Paul Garcia

Kyle Anderson folks. Held his own in the post vs. Boogie, then ripped Collison. Then, makes the and-1 layup in transition. Rook has 14 point

Dan McCarney

Slo-Mo strips Anderson, takes 20 seconds to dribble downcourt, converts the layup, and 1.

Dan McCarney

Jeff Ayres with 15 and 6 in 21 minutes. #preseason

Dan McCarney

AKA, the preseason RT @JejeGomez_PtR 62 of Spurs' 93 points courtesy of Ayres, Baynes, Daye, Anderson, Cotton and J. Green. The Scrubs Game.

Paul Garcia

Now Ayres and Cotton get involved in give-and-go action, with Ayres threading a pass b/w 2 defenders for Cotton layup. SA 97-93

Dan McCarney

Bryce Cotton with the hiiiiiiigh-arcing floater in traffic while Pop chews out timekeeper for resetting clock, Spurs lead 97-93/2:57 left.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs lead 97-93 with 2:57 to play, btw

Jeff McDonald

Pop getting angry at the shot clock guy during a preseason game is the best.

Paul Garcia

Jeff Ayres with the made 14 foot hook shot. I don't know how it went in, but it did. Sours lead 95-93 with 3:18 left.

Dan McCarney

Ayres hits the goofy extended jump hook, now has team-high 15 and the Spurs lead 95-93.

Mike Monroe

Boogie Cousins just knocked down Jeff Ayres but went to line ... Pop to ref Eli Roe: 'Don't tell me that was a flop'

Dan McCarney

Apropos of nothing: Pop rhymes with flop.

Dan McCarney

Cousins gets away with a charge, draws two FTs on Jeff Ayres. Pop, in heated discussion with official: "Don't tell me that's a flop."

Jeff McDonald

Tony Parker didn't want to come out of a tight game with 4:45 to go. He was overruled.

Paul Garcia

Good defense right there by Anderson. Gay used a screen, but Kyle got around and was effective in contesting the shot.

Jeff McDonald

Pop should put Duncan in right now. It would be hilarious.

Dan McCarney

5:27 left in 4Q, Sacto leads Spurs 92-91. Cousins with 27/10, Daye and Parker with 13 apiece to pace the locals. Only 4 TOs in 2nd!!!

Jeff McDonald

Once again, not a bad little game for a pretend one. Kings lead 92-91 with 5:27 to go.

Paul Garcia

Spurs run zipper action and result is Parker driving in and pitching out to Austin Daye open in the corner for three. SA down 92-91.

Dan McCarney

Me: 2,000 years ago, Baynes would have been hell of a tribal champion. @Jeff McDonald: 60 years ago, he would have been best player in NBA.

Paul Garcia

Aron Baynes just stole the ball from Ramon Sessions. That is all..

Dan McCarney

Daye puts it back and the Spurs are back in front. AT&T Center vaguely excited.

Dan McCarney

Anderson has 11 points, 2 rebounds, 1 assists in 21 minutes. Not quite as good as the other night, but IQ is apparent yet again.

Paul Garcia

Anderson is getting really comfortable out there, starting to use the pick and roll now to get things going too as the ball handler.

Dan McCarney

Anderson picks Sessions' pocket, starts break that ends with his two-hand dunk. Spurs back within 1. Fighting hard in this pretend game.

Paul Garcia

Wow number 2. Anderson just picked the ball out of Sesions' pocket, then got the dunk on the other end. Kid has 11 points.

Jeff McDonald

Austin Daye is not built to defend Carl Landry on the block but give him credit for trying.

Paul Garcia

Wow, interesting play by Anderson. Got the rebound, called for isolation, posted and scored. He's got 9 points.

Dan McCarney

And, how could I overlook, 4 personal fouls. He's doing it all tonight at the AT&T...

Dan McCarney

The Boogie: 27 points (10-12), 10 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, 7 turnovers, 1 block in 31 minutes.

Paul Garcia

3Q: Preseason Spurs 77, Kings 78. SA shooting 44%, SAC 52%. SA outscored SAC 28-18. Boogie 27 points, Ayres 7 of his 11 points in 3Q

Mike Monroe

Great pass from Slo-Mo Anderson gets easy bucket for Aron Baynes and #Spurs end 3rd down to #Kings 78-77

Dan McCarney

Strong run for the Spurs to cut what had been a 16-point Kings lead down to 1, 78-77, entering the 4th quarter. BUCKLE UP!!!

Dan McCarney

Kyle Anderson as Boris Diaw: Drives into traffic with those long strides, draws D, spoon feeds Baynes underneath for the layup.

Jeff McDonald

Spurs are within 78-77 heading to 4Q. Trailed by as many as 16.

Paul Garcia

Slo-Mo there. Just drove into the paint with a hesitation move, drew two defenders, and fed Baynes under the rim for a layup.

Mike Monroe

late 3rd qtr. vs. #Kings and 1st pts. for @Manu Ginobili come on a goaltend

Dan McCarney

Hey, Manu scored. On a goal tend.

Jeff McDonald

Manu finally gets on the board. Because some dude goal-tended him.

Jeff McDonald

Despite playing short-handed and being all sorts of horrific for spurts, Spurs trail only 75-70 in 3Q.

Dan McCarney

Also 2 TOs, could easily have twice that RT @Jeff McDonald Ginobili admits he's still out-of-whack bball wise. Still ... 0 for 9 is yikes

Paul Garcia

And now Anderson shoots a three from the corner and is fouled by Rudy Gay. Gay wasn't too happy about the ref calling the foul.

Jeff McDonald

Ginobili admits he's still out-of-whack basketball wise. Still ... 0 for 9 is yikes

Paul Garcia

Good sequence set up by Anderson there. Drove in, found Bryce at the three, who kicked it to Daye in the corner for three.

Dan McCarney

Oof. Cousins up to 26 points on 10 for 11 in 25 minutes.

Paul Garcia

DeMarcus Cousins is having one of those games in NBA 2K15 where you know you're going to score over 25 points before the game starts.

Dan McCarney

Always reassuring, what with Ebola and ISIS and all the madness, to look over and see Dave Robinson munching his popcorn in the second row.

Jeff McDonald

DeMarcus Cousins has four fouls and all of them are at the offensive end and he is not a fan of that.

Paul Garcia

Jeff Ayres gets to the line, he's got 7 points in the quarter, 11 in the game.

Mike Monroe

Corey Robinson's Dad just showed up at ATT Center to watch rest of #Spurs-#Kings game.

Dan McCarney

JaMychal Green just did to Rudy Gay what that woman just did to her date on the Kiss Me cam.

Paul Garcia

JaMychal Green gets an applause from the AT&T Center after swatting Rudy Gay's shot to the 4th row.

Dan McCarney

Speaking of which, isn't Mr. Fantastic about the most egotistical superhero name ever?

Dan McCarney

Parker throws ball into 5th row, then stares Marco Belinelli down because he can't elongate his body like Mr. Fantastic. TO No. 14.

Paul Garcia

Jeff Ayres gets the great hustle clap from Pop as he hustled to get a steal off a pass and Boogie got called for the offensive foul.

Dan McCarney

Dude just got Dikembe Mutombo-into-the-10th-row blocked on the Kiss Cam. And he got her a courtside seat, too.

Dan McCarney

And we have our second exasperated Popovich TO after Spurs beaten downcourt for transition layup. Kings lead 64-54, 10:26 3Q.

Dan McCarney

Except when it's destroying your brain RT @si_nfl To quote Steve Sabol, "Life is great. Football is better."

Paul Garcia

Spurs are running JaMychal at the three though, first time tonight. He has to guard Rudy Gay. Good test for JaMychal in next minutes

Paul Garcia

And there's Green, scores with a tip-in. He has 12 points.

Paul Garcia

JaMychal Green gets the second half start. Led the team in scoring in first half with 10 points in just 7 minutes of play.

Jeff McDonald

If Hammer released a new album today, it would be called "Please Hammer Don't Default on That Loan."

Dan McCarney

Cousins also has 3 assists, 2 steals, 1 block and 4 turnovers. Heading for epic stat line.

Jeff McDonald

You know Hammer is gangster, because he refuses to completely spell out 2 Legit 2 Quit.
