San Antonio Spurs beat Golden State Warriors in showdown of reserves - Mar 12, 2017

Danny Green
It's not surprising the shorthanded San Antonio Spurs were able to roll the far-more shorthanded Golden State Warriors on Saturday night, 107-85, but this game felt like more like a formality than anything else. Gregg Popovich 's group made quick work of the defending Western Conference champions, but the coach made his feelings clear, as he often does after matchups like these. 'It's a win we're going to accept and keep, but it wasn't a fair fight,' he said. 'They're Golden State. Their top four or five players weren't there, if anybody didn't notice. 'We're supposed to win a basketball game like that, and we focused and we did. We did our job, but it wasn't a fair fight.' It was an odd evening. The Spurs and Warriors, separated by a single game in the loss column Saturday morning were battling for the top spot in the conference later that night, but arguably the top seven players between the two sides did not play. A game of this magnitude doesn't typically feature rosters chock-full of D-League players. 'Every game is an important game every time you step on the floor, but obviously we know the stakes at this point in the season, and you want to stay healthy and get healthy - for those who aren't healthy,' Danny Green (6'6''-G/F-87, college: N.Carolina) said. 'We're playing our best basketball (right now), but the last 24 hours we've been hit with a lot.' Between Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, the Spurs learned they'd be without Kawhi Leonard (6'7''-F-91, college: San Diego St.) (NBA concussion protocol) and LaMarcus Aldridge (6'11''-F/C-85, college: Texas) (minor heart arrhythmia) indefinitely, per the team's official statements. The Warriors were obviously hit with a potential landscape-changing injury last week, when Kevin Durant went down, and it's been a rough go for Golden State ever since. The extent of the Spurs' stars' current situation is unknown, and the team will find out more over the next few days concerning the Aldridge situation, but getting a win was a solid pick-me-up after what's been a rough couple of days. As the question was posed postgame, has this stretch - replete with a long road trip and smaller subsequent trips, coupled with serious injuries to the team's two best players - been a bit of a mind (bleep)? 'That's a good way to put it,' Green laughed. 'I feel like the season in itself has always been like that. It's always been a mind-twist. Guys are mentally drained and trying to stay focused and locked in, and physically also. 'But this part of the season is more mental than physical, to keep your mind in it and keep your body going - staying locked in and focused. But there are times where you get rough patches in the season and there are times you get some breaks, and this is a time where we're actually at home, so we get some time to tune up some things and practice in our own facility. If we take care of our business we'll have time to rest before playoffs.' It's an interesting change in the NBA storyline. Suddenly, even in the wake of a lot of bad news, the Spurs have crawled even in the loss column with the Warriors and would have the tiebreaker should the two teams finish the regular season with the same record. And still, what felt like such a huge game (and, really, was a huge game regardless), was a major letdown to fans of the league. 'I told you guys before the game that I genuinely feel bad for the fans who bought tickets and came to see Steph (Curry) or Klay (Thompson) or Draymond (Green), but I have to do what I have to do,' Steve Kerr said at the end of the evening. 'Our team has been through the ringer the last couple of weeks.' The NBA schedule, despite its improvements in terms of maximizing rest, remains a problem that needs solving. And while there were likely many disappointed fans throughout the arena, it's safe to assume, even as the humble victor, the guy on the other end of the sideline appreciated Kerr's thinking. As always with Popovich, it's about the process, not the result.

Drew II is back at Phi.76ers - 3 hours ago
Philadelphia 76ers added to their roster 28-year old international point guard Larry Drew II (188-82kg-90, college: UCLA). It is actually his comeback to the 76ers as he has played here before. Drew II just played at Sioux Falls Skyforce. In 26 NBA G League games he had 11.5ppg, 5.0rpg, 7.4apg and 1.3spg this season. Drew II also spent pre-season at the Heat earlier that year. He has never been drafted by the NBA. The list of the past achievements is quite long as among others Drew II won...   [read more]

Schroeder scores 20 points, improving Hawks beat Jazz 104-90 - 13 hours ago
The Atlanta Hawks are starting to see some results from their improved play. Dennis Schroeder (5'11''-PG-93) scored 20 points , Taurean Prince (6'7''-F-94, college: Baylor) broke out of a slump with 17 and Kent Bazemore (6'5''-G/F-89, college: ODU) did a stellar job defensively, leading the Hawks past the Utah Jazz 104-90 on Monday night. Still saddled with one of the league's worst record, Atlanta (14-32) has won three of its last four, four of six and is .500 over its past 14 games. "We...   [read more]

James Harden
Harden's 28 Help Rockets Rally for 99-90 Win Over Heat - 13 hours ago
Chris Paul (6'0''-PG-85, college: Wake Forest) wasn't thrilled with how the Houston Rockets played Monday night. The veteran was perfectly happy with the outcome though. James Harden (6'5''-SG-89, college: Arizona St.) scored 28 points and the Rockets overcame a big early deficit to beat the Miami Heat 99-90. "You have those games during the season where (you) win the game and move on ... out of 82 of them sometimes it's going to be ugly, but you just want to win," Paul said. Miami led by...   [read more]
