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.

Barnes' late basket, steal put Mavs past Clippers, 97-95 - 10 hours ago
Harrison Barnes (6'8''-F-92, college: N.Carolina) thrived in a new position on Thursday night, and so did the Mavericks. Barnes made the go-ahead basket, then stole the ball from Blake Griffin(6'10''-F-89, college: Oklahoma) with 3.9 seconds left as Dallas beat the Los Angeles Clippers 97-95. Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle started a big lineup, with Barnes moving from power forward to small forward. ''I have a little bit more energy from not banging with as many bigs,'' Barnes said.

Spurs drop Grizzlies in potential playoff preview - 10 hours ago
The Memphis Grizzlies got into the Spurs defensively, pushing San Antonio around and making every possession a fierce fight. The Spurs enjoyed it, especially their defensive-minded coach. LaMarcus Aldridge (6'11''-F/C-85, college: Texas) scored 23 points, Kawhi Leonard (6'7''-F-91, college: San Diego St.) added 19 and San Antonio beat Memphis 97-90 on Thursday night in a possible first-round playoff preview.

DeRozan gets 40, Raptors rally again to beat Heat 101-84 - 10 hours ago
Down by 15 early, the Toronto Raptors had no reason to panic. Trouble brings out their best. DeMar DeRozan (6'7''-F/G-89, college: USC) scored 40 points - doing that back-to-back for the first time in his career - and the Raptors clamped down defensively in the final three quarters to beat the Miami Heat 101-84 on Thursday night. Toronto has now won 19 games this season after trailing by at least 10 points, more than any team in the NBA. "It talks about toughness, heart," Raptors coach Dw...   [read more]
