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…

All-Star Saturday night had its ups and downs. The three-point contest started slow but ended with some nice drama when Bradley Beal pushed eventual winner Marco Belinelli to a shoot-off.

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.

In addition to Irving, the east will be represented by Arron Afflalo, Bradley Beal, and Joe Johnson.…

We know Marco Belinelli is in for All-Star weekend’s three-point contest, and we may have a second confirmed contender in the Wizards’ Bradley Beal — if doctors clear him to participate. Beal suffered a lower leg injury earlier this season which sidelined him for nine games. He’s been on a minutes restriction that was supposed…

UPDATE 4:57 pm: Turns out this was worse than the Spurs were letting on at first. Manu Ginobili will be out 3-4 weeks, the team announced. Ginobili had an MRI on his leg Wednesday and it revealed the strain. The Spurs do not mess around with these injuries, preferring to rest their players more now…
