The Spurs announced the team finished the 2014-15 regular season with the league’s highest average local TV ratings.

Danny Green, summing up Spurs' mood after dropping from No. 2 to No. 6 on season's last day: "Disappointed, but we got over it quickly."

Jeff McDonald

Tim Duncan sums it up: "We know what we're walking into. We know what kind of team we're playing. We know we have to turn it up now."

Jeff McDonald

Btw, I think Pop saying last week Splitter would have been playing had it been the playoffs says all you need to know. Not a state secret.

Jeff McDonald

Last time Chris Paul opened a series vs. Spurs w/o HCA, Spurs beat New Orleans in 7.

Jeff McDonald

Duncan-era Spurs don't have a lot of experience opening series on road. Have won 4 best-of-7s w/o HCA: '05 PHX, '07 PHX, '08 NO, '10 DAL

Preach. RT @freedarko: Column I didn't get to write for today: The Spurs are the defending champs and we forget it.

Jeff McDonald

Per Manu, Splitter slightly limited in practice today. Hopes the Brazilian will be ready "in 48 hours, when we need him."

Quixem Ramirez

I looked through 46 games of Game 1s for that stat, FWIW. That’s how much time I have on my hands today. It’s sad.

Quixem Ramirez

… So it’s been awhile.

Quixem Ramirez

Fun follow up fact: The Spurs have won 11 consecutive Game 1s. Their last Game 1 loss was April 17, 2011.

Quixem Ramirez

Fun fact: The Spurs are 32-14 in Game 1s during the Tim Duncan era.

Jeff McDonald

Tiago Splitter (calf) practiced today but no update beyond that from Popovich.

Dan McCarney

Pop said Splitter practiced lightly today, would not address availability for Game 1. "If he plays, he plays."

In honesty, yesterday was probably a bigger "turd in punch bowl" moment for Clips than Spurs. Don't deserve champs in first round.

Jeff McDonald

... history is also less relevant here. This is a 6th seed that was a M Gasol banked 3 from being 2. They're good enough to win it all.

Re the 6th seed: It's disingenuous to ignore fact that winning 3 or 4 playoff series on the road is harder than winning at home, but ...

Shouldn't jump to conclusions, but given that Parker has already purchased a basketball team back home in France and has money to invest...

Said Hartman, "Wanted to know about our plans and where we're going."

I guess since I got a couple hours, if you people want to ask me questions I have no answers to, I'd be glad to pretend to oblige.

Jeff McDonald

I mean, far be it from me to complain about an extra three hours in New Orleans. But, you know, it's an airport.

Jeff McDonald

What you really want, between the end of regular season and the start of a road playoff series, is a massive flight delay. So this is fun.
