I don't know why but Speights reminds me of Grimace.
Damn. We were robbed of what could have been an epic game from KD. I feel so...unsatisfied.
Farewell Colbert. You educated me, entertained me and gave me something to look forward to four times a week. There will be a void in my DVR
well that's a bummer
K D Thunder UP
BYU crushes Texas' national championship hopes at volleyball's Final Four. Making matters worse, Taysom Hill had 20 kills.
Blazers w/o Robin Lopez and possibly Nic Batum still lethal. But might actually be a fair fight Fri vs. Parker-less, Leonard-less Spurs.
The battle between LHN's Bevo Cam and SECN's yule log isn't even a fair fight. Now, if SECN could've gotten Les Miles grazing on grass...
Love his competitiveness but not a huge Rondo guy. Respect that Mavs went for it though.Will be fascinating to see how he fits.
If deal gets sent to the league tomorrow & it's approved after Rondo clears physical, will be interesting if he'll be ready by SAT vs. SA.
Rondo is a career 25% shooter from three, 61% shooter from the free throw line. When does Pop use the hack-a-Rondo? Game 3 or 4 of season?
If the deal with Boston is completed tomorrow, seems iffy Rondo is in actually Mavs uniform by Sunday, I'd guess. But we'll see.
Meanwhile, according to usual suspects in my timeline, Mavs in line to acquire Rajon Rondo in time to possibly face the Spurs on Saturday.
There were those who mocked TBS for 24 hours of A Christmas Story, and who's laughing now? Don't be on the wrong side of history, people.
For five hours, commercial-free, on Christmas morning, LHN will run footage of Bevo roaming his ranch. I'm not making that up.
Spurs have scrapped shootaround for tomorrow. I know at least one follower probably incensed about it. BECAUSE THESE GUYS ARE PAID MILLIONS
Shootaround has been scratched for tmw.
Danny also shooting 42.1 pct on 3s with 7th most makes in the NBA. Such a valuable and, w/ shot blocking, unique role player.
Blocks not recorded until early 70s, of course. Have to guess at least Jerry West would have done that.
Danny Green having great season with 1.4 spg, 1.3 bpg. Only guards to ever do that are Wade, Jordan (twice) and Gervin.
Helped a Polish guy get a Duncan graph from Spurs community wing one time. But I've worked too hard just to earn moderate disdain from Pop.
Just had a fan e-mail me to ask Gregg Popovich for an autograph for him. Yeah, probably going to skip that one.
Really was amazing how similar those two shots were. Same basket, too.
If this gets to trial it will be amazing.
OSU lawyer Breen, explaining to judge why there's a dispute over an OL coach: "Some believe he performed miracles at UT this fall."
Point of today's hearing was OSU trying to get Wickline's suit in Austin dismissed. Wickline was denied a similar motion in Oklahoma.
While we're on the subject: Spurs are a .500 team (10-10) over last two seasons without Kawhi Leonard in uniform.
Wickline's attorney David Beck insists OSU crossed line with letters. "At some point, we're going to have to fight over what they've done."
Both lawyers said it's possible Texas coaches/players could eventually be called to testify about who's calling plays.
OSU attorney Sean Breen called out UT for not paying Wickline's buyout, telling the judge "most honorable institutions" would've done it.
Just watched lawyers for Joe Wickline and Oklahoma State get a little feisty in district court. Nothing settled, though. Story to come.
U got a size 17 back there B-nard size 17 B nard hahahaha
Popovich's ultimate nightmare: Seven different Spurs set a season-high for minutes last night.
That's especially true in a season like this, when all the teams appear so evenly matched. Every slight edge -- like HCA -- is significant.
Dirty secret about the NBA playoffs: It's not only about having the best team. It's also about having the most manageable road.
Same injury report for Portland: Parker (out), Leonard (out), Mills (out). No mention of any resting players, but those could still be TBD.
No word on Duncan, Ginobili or anybody else after logging monster minutes in Wednesday's triple OT epic vs. Memphis.
Injury report for Portland: Leonard (hand), out; Parker (hamstring), out; Mills (shoulder), out.
No mention of Duncan, Manu, Diaw or Green on injury report. But still a lot of time before tip-off, or Pop could dress them & not play them.
The Spurs say Tony Parker (hamstring), Kawhi Leonard (hand) and Patty Mills will all be out vs. blazers tomorrow.
Texas Bowl announces it has sold out.
If it were me, I'd be *awfully* tempted to rest who needs to be rested vs. PDX (again) and take my chances with a full roster Sat at Dallas.
Given the heavy minutes guys played Wed, going to be real interesting to see if Pop approaches Friday like the front end or back end of b2b.
Green: "I'm not considered one of the older guys here, so I have to play."
Danny Green logged career-high 51 minutes, got beat to all Hades, but still expects to play Friday vs. Portland.
Boris Diaw, meanwhile, logged 39 minutes for the second time this season. Didn't even have to take his usual foie gras IV.
Manu Ginobili, age 37, played 41 minutes last night vs. Memphis. It was his most in the regular season since working 45 at ATL on 3/21/2010
The last time Duncan logged as many minutes in one night: 12/09/2008, when he played 50 minutes of a double-OT win at Dallas.
Tim Duncan, 38, played 48 minutes of a triple-OT loss to MEM last night. Rest assured this does not gibe with Pop's rest management plan.
Just to clue in some of you non-Texans: Big Red is basically a cream soda, colored red. It goes surprisingly well with barbecue.
Re-Watching the highlights from last night's game, I should have DVR'd it. Really good classic for a December game.
Spurs win totals: 2014-15: 54 wins* 2013-14: 62 2012-13: 58 2011-12: 50** 2010-11: 61 2009-10: 50 So they're fine. *on pace **lockout
Get this: Spurs are on pace for 54 wins this year, which would be the third worst (!!!) mark in the Tim Duncan era. MY MIND JUST EXPLODED.
In my last four Spurs home games, I've seen a Parker game-winner, a double OT playoff win and triple OT loss. I mean, what are the odds?
A person spent $150,000 to look like Kim Kardashian. There's nothing quite like America.
Duncan, at age 38, definitely has to get a an All-Star consideration: 15.0 points, 11.0 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 0.9 steals, 2.3 blocks.
Tim Duncan is now neck in neck with Kawhi (12.3) & Parker (12.3) in shots per game at 12.0 FGA. Duncan's averaging 15.0 points.
The Spurs are 17-9 and the fact that people are freaking out is a testament to their greatness. They'll progress to the mean.
That game was insane to experience in person. But it wasn't "gut wrenching" or "agonizing" as Skip Bayless put it. It's a damn long season.
I was entertained, at least.
Anyone catch this entertainment after the game? (Check out the next two Retweets) ...
Not bad for a guy who has been cut a few times, played in Greece, in the D-League - to be in NBA history books & Finals history books.
So per Elias, Danny Green is the first player in NBA history to make 7 threes in a game & block 5 shots. Check last RT.
2) Tonight was the first time in Manu Ginobili's career he tallied at least 20 points, 8 assists and 8 rebounds in a single game.
Some notes from the Spurs: 1) Danny Green had a career high 5 blocks. He's averaging career best 1.38 steals & 1.31 blocks per game.
Merci aux insomniaques ou ceux qui se lèvent tôt pour les messages. Beau match...mais je n'aime toujours pas perdre. Bonne nuit ou journée
Sorry fans, late message. Thanks for the support and kind messages. Thrilling game again but I hate losing. Let's get ready for Friday.
