HoopsHype San Antonio Spurs twitter
George with 26 on 13 shots. Has hit some freaky shots, but that's what MVP candidates do.
Indy 87, Spurs 65 heading to 4Q.
This is like watching a nature show where a pack of wild cheetahs takes down a hapless water buffalo.
So this is sort of a butt kicking?
Paul George...there's just no defense for that.
As good as the Spurs looked in the first quarter, they have been equivalently crappy since.
If NBA games were only 12 minutes long, this would have been Spurs' top performance of the season.
Indy is 6 of 12 from 3-point range? That feels low.
The Pacers suddenly go ice-cold. Scoreless on two straight trips.
Stops on demand! Two in a row!
Wait, Indy dribbled the ball to that one end and the scoreboard didn't change. Is that legal?
BREAKING: The Spurs got a stop.
I believe Spurs' last stop came in midway through 2Q when Johnson ran over Jeff Ayres.
Does anybody remember the Spurs' last stop? Indy has scored on 16 straight possessions.
I love Frank Vogel's accent.
Total of 36 points in that span.
Hibbert hits an eyes-closed turnaround at shot clock horn after Duncan blocks his first attempt. Pacers' lead up to 64-50.
Pacers have scored on 15 straight possessions dating back to 2nd Q.
George Hill is red hot. Seven points, two 3s in the 3rd quarter, and we're barely three minutes in.
Pacers have turned 13-point deficit into 11-point lead.
7-0 run to open second half for Pacers, now up 59-48.
Matt Bonner starts 2nd 1/2 fo r#Spurs in Splitter's spot
Can't credit elite Pacers corner 3 D on that last shot. Green was wide open, just missed.
No mo Splitter. Same calf issues. Scored 2 points in 8 minutes.
Tiago Splitter (calf) done for the night, per Spurs.
Tiago Splitter won't return in 2nd half for Spurs, tightness, left calf
Bonner starts the second half.
At half in SA it's IND 52, SAS 48; Pacers were down 13 with 9:45 left in 2nd, outscored Spurs 30-13 therafter
Pacers score on final 10 possessions of 2Q. Spurs lucky they had 13-point cushion. Indy leads 52-48 at half.
30 points for Indy this quarter.
Paul George heating up NBA Jam style. He's up to 17, still in 2Q.
Another 3 for George, ran Kawhi off a screen and popped it. 11 straight points, plus an assist.
That's eight points and an assist on last four trips for Mr. George.
Ginobili up to 10 points in the first half.
Pacers have outscored Spurs 16-4 over last 3:47 of 2nd qtr., now lead 42-41 with Paul George at line for an and-one FT; 2:37 left in 1st 1/2
Parker's layup breaks 18-4 run for Pacers.
Meanwhile, that 13-point lead is all gone.
And just like that Indy is in front on George's PUJIT 3.
Spoke too soon with the praise. Spurs have just two points on last nine possessions.
Pop says screw this not scoring stuff. Puts in Bonner.
Pop did a great Macaulay Culkin, circa Home Alone impression after that last turnover.
8-2 run for the Pacers cuts it to 37-30, 5:26 left in the second quarter.
Can't decide whether the Spurs have been more impressive on offense or defense. Solid all-around performance so far.
Mahinmi flirting with more fouls than minutes.
Another foul for Ian. That's three in four minutes.
Manu going all in with some of these 3s.
Manu playing with so much energy right now.
Can't even compare the quality of shots the two teams are getting.
Pop was more worried about losing stamina during hiatus. So we'll see how goes that come 4Q.
Guess we can put to rest idea that Spurs might be rusty after five days w/o a game. Looked synced-in at both ends in 1Q.
Spurs score 28 points, shoot 54.5% in 1Q against NBA's top defense. Not bad.
Spurs with 28 points on 22 possessions in first quarter. Pacers typically allow around 91 per 100.
No LeBron treatment for George. Being aggressively trapped and hedged every time he touches the ball.
Pacers, obviously, are a load defensively. Spurs playing with tons of energy at that end as well.
Great to be back at the AT&T Center, the place where WiFi went to die.
Remember this? http://t.co/LJKvXjp6F4
Now Manu's just showing off for his old buddy Luis.
Lance Stephenson popped Parker in the face. Pop to Bill Kennedy: "You look at the rebound at halftime and tell me that was inadvertant."
Tim just became 21st player in NBA history to score 24,000 points.
Reminder: Both these teams took eventual champion Miami to Game 7 last season.
The amount of shot contesting going on is fairly ridiculous.
And Duncan comes right back for perimeter jumper
Paul George's shoes >>>
Nice cheer for George Hill. Can't wait to see what kind of treatment Blair gets.
Nice little ovation for SA expatriate George Hill upon introduction.
Pacers: G Hill, Stephenson, George, West, Hibbert. Spurs: Parker, Green, Leonard, Duncan, Splitter.
The reason the question was "do you want to come back" instead of "will you be back" is because he theoretically knows the former.
For being with a team that generally dresses down, Will Sevening doesn't get enough credit for his threads. Best dresses trainer in the NBA?
I wouldn't take Mack's decision not to answer the question as proof he's gone. He honestly might want to meet with Patterson, Powers first.
Glad to be back at the AT&T Center, where nothing appears to be smoking except the teamsters in the parking lot.
Holy wow. Jeff McDonald's voice is still ragged out from Wednesday night.
Spurs v Pacers 830pm eastern...tune in
Mack's response: "I'm not talking about that tonight. I'm in the same position I've been in the other 15 times I've been asked."
I asked Mack if he wants to come back next year. He declined to answer.
Case McCoy was right. Baylor should not have been a two touchdown favorite. Should have been three.
Tiago Splitter (calf) will play tonight vs. Indiana. Will be limited, per Pop.
Texas is headed to the BWW Bowl (if OU doesn't make BCS) or the Alamo (if OU makes BCS). And I'm headed to an interesting postgame newser.
Baylor Bears, Big 12 champs.
Tiago Splitter will play and start, but under a watchful eye.
Texas has more faith in its return team than its offense, and it might be right.
Better to be lucky than good?
Run it twice.
So the little gunner with the neon shoes at today's shtrnd was PJ Carlesimo's 11-year-old son. Kid can shoot; made four straight corners 3s.
That 47-yard Baylor TD march moved Texas' bowl plans a little farther from Glendale and a little closer to Tempe.
Danger zone for the Longhorns. Not sure they can come back from a 14-point hole.
Splitter listed as questionable on game notes. Will find out in about an hour from Pop. For what it's worth, looked good at shootaround.
Another bad throw great catch!!
Baylor converts 3rd-and-long three times on a 14-play TD drive to start the second half. Bears lead 10-3.
Rooting for Baylor cause of all the money I send there, but proud of Malcolm Brown.
