  1. NBA Playoffs: Spurs miracle staved off elimination once. Got another?

    Memphis Grizzlies v San Antionio Spurs - Game Five

    The San Antonio Spurs are here. Still playing. Manu Ginobili hit a wild shot. Gary Neal hit the thrilling game saver to force overtime. Tony Parker morphed into Tony Parker circa 2005 in the overtime. San Antonio staved off elimination Wednesday in dramatic fashion. But it did not change the underlying issues in this series.…

  2. The title contending Spurs are dead. Long live the Spurs.

    San Antionio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    This is the end Beautiful friend This is the end My only friend, the end —Jim Morrison, The Doors We’re going to miss the Tim Duncan era Spurs. Yes, likely will get one more win in their first round series, Wednesday night at home. They are fully capable of that. But it will be fools…

    San Antionio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    Memphis came into this series a tough matchup for San Antonio — the Spurs want to control the paint and take away those three pointers opponents like to shoot. Except the Grizzlies don’t really shoot threes and have more size and skill in the paint than the Spurs. And they are more physical. In the…

    Memphis Grizzlies v Phoenix Suns

    It wasn’t just that Memphis won Game 4 and took a 3-1 lead over the San Antonio Spurs, it was how. The Grizzlies bullied them. They were more physical. In boxing/MMA terms, they punched San Antonio in the mouth and San Antonio has stepped back. Maybe the signature play of the game was this O.J.…

  5. NBA Playoffs: Grizzlies go for the kill, take 3-1 lead over Spurs

    Apr 26, 2011, 12:51 AM EDT

    O. J. Mayo

    The San Antonio Spurs are lost. Their will is broken, their vaunted offense has withered and died, and the three-star core that has brought so much success to the Spurs franchise just isn’t producing at an acceptable level. Or, more accurately, the Memphis Grizzlies have erased the Spurs. They’ve broken San Antonio’s will, and smothered…

  6. NBA Playoffs: Must win game for Spurs against Grizzlies? Yup.

    Memphis Grizzlies' Randolph celebrates his team's win over the San Antonio Spurs during their NBA basketball game in Memphis

    If the fact Rebecca Black has a hit was not proof enough we live in a Bizzaro World, I bring you this: The San Antonio Spurs must beat the Memphis Grizzlies tonight on the road, or their path out of the playoffs is as slippery as a Slip ‘n Slide. Win and the series is…

  7. NBA Playoffs: Memphis tries to make Spurs sing the blues

    Apr 23, 2011, 6:58 PM EDT

    Marc Gasol, Tim Duncan

    The Spurs were not regular season monsters only, right? Memphis is just a tough matchup who can grind it out but when push comes to shove Tim Duncan will still be Tim Duncan, Tony Parker will get into the lane and hit floaters, Manu Ginobili will confound. Right? We’ll find out Saturday in Memphis. We…

  8. NBA Playoffs: For one game new Spurs look like old Spurs

    Memphis Grizzles v San Antionio Spurs - Game Two

    These are not your father’s San Antonio Spurs. Well, bad example, because your father’s Spurs had Artis Gilmore and George Gervin, and these definitely are not those Spurs. But these are not the four-time champion Spurs, either. This is a very different team with a different, more offense-minded identity. As Timothy Varner said at 48…

  9. NBA Playoffs: Manu Ginobili playing in Game 2 for Spurs

    Apr 20, 2011, 7:55 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Marc Gasol, Matt Bonner

    Manu Ginobili is back. With a rather cumbersome looking brace on his sprained right elbow, but he is back. And that could make Game 2 between the Grizzlies and Spurs a lot different than Game 1. In the first game, the Grizzlies focused their defensive efforts on Tony Parker (4-of-12 shooting), tried hard to stop…

  10. Or maybe Manu Ginobili is a go for Game 2, so good for the Spurs

    Apr 19, 2011, 3:48 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    UPDATE 3:48 pm: Apparently somebody brought some water from Lourdes to San Antonio, because there has been a miraculous healing. Reports as of this morning said Ginobili was still doubtful, but now the very good beat writer Jeff McDonald of the Express-News says on twitter that Ginobili is 99.9 percent likely to play. They need him,…

  11. Spurs Ginobili out for Game one, after that who knows

    Apr 17, 2011, 1:15 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Phoenix Suns

    Again, this is why you don’t play your stars in meaningless late regular season games. Manu Ginobili will be out for Game 1 of the Spurs first round series against the Grizzlies due to a sprained right elbow. Which sucks. But it may not hurt them that much this series. What they need is a…
