  1. Highlights of Ricky Rubio’s triple-double (VIDEO)

    Mar 13, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

    Ricky Rubio

    Ricky Rubio is getting healthy, trusting his knee and starting to look like his old self again. Actually, not starting to, is looking like his old self. Just ask the Spurs. Sure, it was a Spurs team without Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Kawhi Leonard, but how many teams have the Spurs subs made look…

  3. Kawhi Leonard with steal, move, slam over Perkins (VIDEO)

    Mar 12, 2013, 9:54 AM EDT

    Kawhi Leonard

    As much as one play can, this play pretty much sums up why the Spurs beat the Thunder Thursday night. There was the defense — from the start of the second quarter on the Thunder had 12 turnovers, like this steal by Kawhi Leonard, and shot just 39.3 percent. There was the energy — the Spurs…

  4. Spurs sure look like contenders in 12-point win over Thunder

    Mar 12, 2013, 12:21 AM EDT

    Tim Duncan

    There are two, slightly contradictory take aways from this game: 1) There are a lot of people that watched the Spurs look great in the regular season the last couple years but then look very beatable in the playoffs who think this Spurs team is like those. But there is a key difference — this…

Lakers 108, Hornets 102: The Lakers were down 25 in the third quarter, 18 entering the fourth. But then Kobe Bryant took over the offense and Dwight Howard the defense, the Hornets fell…

  7. Three Stars of the Night: Two All-Stars and a guy who should have been

    Feb 14, 2013, 2:27 AM EDT

    Gerald Henderson, Paul George

    I wanted to do an all All-Star edition of three stars tonight, but I couldn’t leave Josh Smith off (representing he and Al Horford, who alone almost beat the Magic)… but he should have been one. So I’m calling this the All-Star edition anyway. As always some guys are close but just missed out. Joe…

  8. Kawhi Leonard’s game-winning corner three to beat Cavaliers (VIDEO)

    Feb 14, 2013, 1:37 AM EDT

    Kawhi Leonard, Dion Waiters

    This is what the Spurs do — make a mistake and you pay the price. Down two with 8 seconds left in Cleveland, Tony Parker gets the ball out top and drives the lane. If you don’t take that away from him one of the best point guards in the game will tie it up.…

  9. Report: Spurs have interest in trade for Josh Smith

    Feb 12, 2013, 7:22 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    The San Antonio Spurs are clearly in the market for another big man — they realize if they are going to go up against the Thunder, Clippers and Grizzlies in the playoffs an improved front line will be key. First came the report they were interested in Utah’s Al Jefferson, which makes some sense for…

  12. Three Stars of the Night: Stretching Out

    Feb 12, 2013, 12:50 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    The stretch big man has come a long way. I distinctly remember watching Sam Perkins play with the Lakers and Sonics through the 90′s and wondering how someone so big could shoot it from the perimeter so well. It was a little jarring to see. Perkins was 6-foot-10, about 235 pounds, and his eyes always…

    Jan 30, 2013, 4:17 PM EDT

    BBVA Rising Stars Challenge

    Friday night of All-Star weekend is when the NBA likes to show off it’s future All-Stars. Or, at least the guys who seem like they are going to stick around the league for a while. It’s the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge — what the rest of us still call the rookie/sophomore game. Although for the…

  16. Tim Duncan, Gregg Popovich out Friday for Spurs in Dallas

    Jan 24, 2013, 4:58 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v San Antonio Spurs - Game Two

    San Antonio will be without Tim Duncan and without Gregg Popovich again on Friday, the pair did not travel with the team to Dallas for the game, tweets Marc Spears of Yahoo Sports. Yes, this is key Spurs missing a nationally televised game, but this time the league office probably sees it as legit. Both…

    Jan 23, 2013, 12:41 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan

    The San Antonio Spurs will be without Tim Duncan and Kawhi Leonard Wednesday night when the San Antonio Spurs host the New Orleans Hornets, tweets Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express News.

    Kawhi Leonard Gregg Popovich

    With 1:31 left in the Spurs win in Philadelphia Sunday, Kawhi Leonard had to leave the game after going to the floor and coming up with something wrong with his knee that was of concern.

  21. Video: Vince Carter can still get up, throw it down

    Dec 30, 2012, 11:03 PM EDT

    Vince Carter

    There were not many highlights for Dallas out of Sunday night — the Mavs were lackluster and the Spurs were their usual efficient selves. The final result was 111-86 San Antonio. But there was Vince Carter channeling his 2002 self with an impressive spinning dunk over just returned Kawhi Leonard. So enjoy that Mavs fans.…

    Kevin Durant

    Can you believe it? The NBA season is somehow a third of the way finished, which means it’s probably time to take stock of what we’ve seen so far this year. We’ll give out some awards — ’tis the season and all that — but we’ll also dish out some coal. After all, what are…

  23. That was quick: Spurs recall Kawhi Leonard from D-League

    Dec 20, 2012, 3:52 PM EDT

    Kawhi Leonard

    I love that NBA teams are starting to use the D-League like a real minor league, like MLB teams use their farm clubs. For things like rehab assignments after injury. Which is what the Spurs did with Kawhi Leonard, sending him down to the Austin Toros. But it only lasted 24 hours as they have…

  24. Spurs assign Kawhi Leonard to D-League

    Dec 19, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Kawhi Leonard

    Kawhi Leonard has missed the Spurs last 18 games, after being shut down due to tendinitis in his left knee back in mid-November. It appears he’s getting closer to being healthy enough to return to the lineup. San Antonio assigned Leonard to their D-League affiliate on Wednesday, likely to continue his rehab and work toward…

    Orlando Magic

    After trading Dwight Howard and not getting a heck of a whole lot in return, the Orlando Magic were left for dead by everyone — yours truly included. But after taking out a hot Minnesota team and improving to a very respectable 11-13 record on the season, Glen “Big Baby” Davis made it clear in…
