Duncan’s Greatness Invisible To Traditional Statistics.

Martin M Dominguez Spurs Blog 0 Comments

  It is perplexing that Duncan started every game against the Grizzlies, even though he doesn’t seem to be very effective. After all, he averaged only 5.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game in an average of 20.3 minutes throughout the series. These numbers are nothing to scoff at, but they scream role player, not so much starter on a …

With Steph Curry & Chris Paul Banged Up, Are The Spurs Now Favorites?

Martin M Dominguez Spurs Blog 0 Comments

Sometimes, the difference between a championship ring and an early-round playoff exit is as small as the circumference of the slippery area on the hardwood where a player just fell. Chris Paul isn’t “likely” to return to the Clippers this year, not after breaking the third metacarpal in his right (shooting) hand during LA’s Game 4 loss to the Trail …

Why Gregg Popovich is the real Coach of the Year.

Steve Kerr is your Coach of the Year for the 2015-16 NBA season, a perfectly justifiable choice. The Golden State Warriors lost only nine games in 82 tries, a feat that won’t be topped for quite some time (unless Steph Curry gets mad and decides he doesn’t want to miss any of his shots next season). Nothing against Kerr, who seems …

Tim Duncan says Kawhi Leonard not getting star treatment he deserves.

  In the past two years, San Antonio forward Kawhi Leonard has won an NBA Finals MVP award, a pair of Defensive Player of the Year trophies, has been named an All-Star starter and has emerged as a viable league MVP candidate. Leonard, by any measure, is a bona fide star. His future Hall of Fame teammate, Tim Duncan, says …

Spurs will test the Thunder in ways Mavericks never could.

Oklahoma City earned passage to the second round of the playoffs on Monday night, though not without first withstanding the best shot of a depleted Dallas team. It’s not hyperbole to say the Mavs did all they could; injuries thinned out the lineup to the point it could barely function, and yet gutsy efforts up and down the roster ensured …

Spurs Break Out The Brooms To Complete Sweep of The Grizzlies.

The San Antonio Spurs complete the sweep of the Memphis Grizzlies as an early birthday present for Tim Duncan who turns 40 April 25th. This was a strange game as a The Fed Ex Forum experienced a black out that delayed the game 18 minutes.  The Sours got their offense going late in the 3rd quarter and started the 4th …

Grizzlies’ Zach Randolph says Kawhi among NBA’s top 2-3 players.

True to their word, the Memphis Grizzlies came armed to the hilt with whatever they could find in Game 3 of their first-round series against the San Antonio Spurs. Unfortunately, that wasn’t enough to change the outcome. That’s because the Spurs employ Kawhi Leonard, a two-way terror the Grizzlies had no answer for. While blowouts in Games 1 and 2 …

Examining The Spurs Offensive Versatility In 2015-16.

  As fans, we are always looking for advantages our team can employ to win games. In the NBA, almost everything has been analyzed to determine what’s good and what’s bad for winning games: “Shoot layups and threes, especially from the corner,” “Don’t shoot a deep two at the beginning of the shot clock,” or “Post-ups and ‘chuckers’ are inefficient.” This piece will …

Of Course Kawhi Leonard Deflected Credit For His DPOY.

Martin M Dominguez Spurs Blog 0 Comments

After becoming a back-to-back winner of Defensive Player of the Year on Monday, we were curious to hear what Kawhi Leonard would say when the inevitable glare coming from the announcement foisted a microphone in his face. This is a guy who would rather play basketball in an arena empty of spectators, so any commendations for his two-way exploits, or …
