  7. After rough shooting night LeBron says he’s “not a big fan” of sleeved jerseys

    Mar 7, 2014, 2:39 AM EST

    Miami Heat  v San Antonio Spurs

    Adidas and the NBA will tell you that the sleeved jerseys are selling faster than they had projected, which is why you are seeing more of them (including the “Latin Nights” series of games, that are going on this month) . All-Star weekend commissioner Adam Silver said math showed that shooting percentages were almost identical…

  8. Spurs get a little revenge, along with season’s signature win in takedown of Heat

    Mar 6, 2014, 11:40 PM EST

    lebron duncan

    In the first meeting of the season between the Heat and the Spurs, Miami had little trouble securing victory in the Finals rematch, in large part due to the fact that the Spurs were cobbling together a lineup that didn’t entirely feature the team’s best players. The rematch of the rematch, however, saw the Spurs…

  9. Spurs get a little healthier: Kawhi Leonard returns Wednesday

    Feb 26, 2014, 1:52 PM EST

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game Three

    It’s so hard to get a good read on just how good San Antonio really is during the regular season. Sure, they are 40-16 overall, second best record in the West and fourth best in the NBA, but they are 3-11 against the rest of the top five in the West and the top two…

  10. No, Tony Parker is not retiring after 2016 Olympics

    Feb 26, 2014, 12:21 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    It was basically a big game of telephone. NBA Greece posted a story about how after the 2016 Rio Olympics San Antonio’s Tony Parker was going to retire from international play. That gets seen by some San Antonio television broadcasters and suddenly the rumor is “Tony Parker is going to retire in 2016.” No. No…

  11. Spurs shut Tony Parker down for “foreseeable future” for “variety of maladies”

    Feb 18, 2014, 5:21 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    Tony Parker played in the All-Star Game last weekend with a sprained hand. That’s not to mention his sore back, groin, shin/calf, and hip that he has played through recently. Actually, it might just be quicker to list the places where Tony Parker is not banged up. Which is why the Spurs are going to…

  12. George Karl says he heard “whispers” this could be Tim Duncan’s last season

    Feb 18, 2014, 1:49 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    Tim Duncan wasn’t an All-Star this season mostly because he didn’t want to be, the other coaches around the NBA knew that and went with younger faces. But he is still as solid as ever — 15.6 points a game, 10 rebounds a night, a true shooting percentage of 53.6 and a PER of 22.…

  13. The Extra Pass: Handicapping the All-Star Saturday events

    Feb 7, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Denver Nuggets

    A week from now the eyes of the basketball world will be on New Orleans for the NBA’s Damian Lillardapalooza. … er, I mean the NBA’s All-Star weekend. While Sunday’s All-Star Game is the big show, I’ve always found Saturday night’s series of skill contests more fun than the no-D exhibition that is the All-Star…

  14. Nets pull away to take care of short-handed Spurs

    Feb 6, 2014, 11:07 PM EST

    alan anderson nets

    A Spurs team without many of its stars can still prove difficult for opponents to deal with, in large part because of the way San Antonio consistently stacks its team with players perfectly suited to perform in the highly-disciplined system engineered by tenured head coach Gregg Popovich. That was true for a while in Thursday…

  15. Tony Parker, Tim Duncan both out for Spurs in Brooklyn Thursday

    Feb 6, 2014, 2:30 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Portland Trail Blazers

    The Spurs will have more players left than the Los Angeles Lakers… but it’s getting close.

No, there will be no fines for this one…

    Feb 6, 2014, 10:52 AM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    Leave it to Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich to make light of an otherwise less-than-stellar situation. San Antonio needed to expend more energy than perhaps was necessary in securing a double-overtime win over the Wizards on Wednesday, though they did it without Tony Parker for much of it. Parker played less than 19 minutes and…

  17. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Adam Silver signs the balls, Kevin Durant keeps shooting them

    Feb 3, 2014, 2:21 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Brooklyn Nets

    A look at PBT’s power rankings show basically the only thing that really changed this week was the signature on the Spaulding balls — Adam Silver’s signature is in play. Aside that Durant has the Thunder on top and the Lakers continue fall like the lead balloon they are. 1. Thunder (38-11, Last Week No.…

  18. Spurs sign Shannon Brown to 10-day contract

    The Spurs have signed Shannon Brown to a 10-day contract, a move announced on Saturday via official release. The team also released Othyus Jeffers, whom they had previously called up from the D-League on a 10-day contract following the injury to Kawhi Leonard. Brown played well for the Phoenix Suns over the last two seasons,…

  19. Gregg Popovich and the two-word sideline interview (VIDEO)

    Jan 30, 2014, 12:35 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat

    In the second half of the third quarter Wednesday night, the Chicago Bulls went on a 14-3 run and started to create a little separation between themselves and the San Antonio Spurs. The Bulls were more aggressive, getting to the line 13 times in the third quarter. You can imagine how that sat with Gregg…

  20. The Extra Pass: Should Indiana be worried about its offense? And Tuesday’s recaps.

    Jan 29, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Indiana Pacers v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES — Indiana is the best team in the NBA right now — they have the best record in the league (by percentage points over Oklahoma City) and they have the best point differential in the league. The Pacers are legitimate title contenders. They have done all that in spite of their offense. The…

  21. Tuesday night NBA grades: Anthony Davis is a force of nature

    Jan 29, 2014, 1:48 AM EST

    Anthony Davis

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while singing “If I had a hammer” in honor of Pete Seeger…. Anthony Davis, New Orleans Pelicans. He had 8 blocks in this game, giving him 15 blocks in his last two games — he is a defensive beast. He protects the rim but his…

  22. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Durant powers Thunder to top slot

    Jan 27, 2014, 3:29 PM EST

    Kevin Durant

    No Russell Westbrook yet Kevin Durant has pushed the Thunder to the top of the West and the top of PBT’s weekly power rankings. Still strange to see the Celtics and Lakers near the bottom of the poll, but it’s where they belong this season.   1. Thunder (35-10, LW 4). Kevin Durant is making…

  23. What malaise? Chris Bosh, Miami look sharp in blowout win over Spurs

    Jan 26, 2014, 3:29 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers vs Miami Heat

    Miami just needed a challenge, apparently. The Heat had coasted through the last few weeks, still winning some games but not looking sharp, looking like a team that was bored with the season. Like a team a little tired and just waiting for the playoffs. Then the Spurs came to town and Miami woke up…
