NBA Playoffs throwback: Memphis Grizzlies vs. San Antonio Spurs, 2011, Game 5 of the Western Conference 1st round.

Gary Neal drains a buzzer beater to send the game into overtime. The Spurs would win the battle but lose the war. Memphis would advance to play the Thunder in the conference semifinals.

The rematch has begun and game 2 is tonight at 9PM ET on ESPN.

“I went from wanting to trade him on the spot to wanting to cook breakfast for him tomorrow morning. That’s the truth. When I talk to him and say, ‘Manu,’ he goes, ‘This is what I do.’ That’s what he’s going to tell me. I stopped coaching him a long time ago.”

NBA Playoffs throwback: Golden State Warriors vs. San Antonio Spurs, 1991, Western Conference quarterfinals

The NBA on NBC intro as Don Nelson and Run TMC pay a visit to Mr. Robinson’s neighborhood. Listen to the novelty as Mike Fratello describes the Warriors style of “small ball”. San Antonio would win game 1 of the series and then lose 4-straight.

The series begins tonight at 9:30PM ET on TNT.

NBA Playoffs throwback: Los Angeles Lakers vs. San Antonio Spurs, 2004, Western Conference semifinals. 

One of the most incredible endings to a playoff game in NBA history. Kobe Bryant’s go-ahead shot is then answered by Tim Duncan’s fade away jumper that, if it had burned an extra .1 second, would have probably sealed the game for the Spurs. But it did not. Instead with .4 seconds left in the game, Derek Fisher’s prayer is answered.

A new chapter of an old rivalry begins in San Antonio on Sunday at 3:30pm EST on ABC.

All of a sudden the Spurs are the rebels of the NBA.

All of a sudden the Spurs are the rebels of the NBA.

The strategic resting of particular players on particular nights is within the discretion of the teams. And Gregg Popovich in particular is probably the last coach that I would second-guess.
NBA commisioner-to-be Adam Silver, six months ago, when the Spurs rested Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker against the Utah Jazz. He added, “Teams like the San Antonio Spurs are playing to win a championship, and I think fans understand that,” and that the Spurs would face no fines or other reprisals for their actions.

Watch Stephenson break Tony Parker’s ankles.

Gregg Popovich and the Spurs lose three in a row for the first time all season, and all of the sudden the rejuvenated throwbacks are watching their window close.
Is this the end of the road for the Spurs?
