Manu Ginobili 16 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (4/22/2018)

After the Spurs’ surprise win over the Warriors to hold off elimination for one game, I snuck in the Warriors’ locker room to see how the players were reacting to the fact that Manu Ginobili completely buried them at the end of the game. Here’s what I saw: Kevin Durcupcake: Butt-blasted by veteran savvy he…

Patty Mills 21 Points Full Highlights (4/16/2018)

The Spurs don’t have an obvious #2 guy behind LaMarcus Aldridge. Maybe that’s cool for people who self-righteously support teams who “play the right way” with “teamwork” and “no egos” but my simple little brain prefers a clearly-defined team hierarchy where there is a first banana, a second banana, and preferably a bunch of sequentially-numbered…

Manu Ginobili 17 Points/5 Assists/1 Dunk Full Highlights (4/9/2018)

There was a part of me that was like “it would be cool for the Spurs to miss the playoffs so that all the Popovich nuthuggers would stop hugging his nuts” but then there was an opposing part of me that was like “if Manu Ginobili missed the playoffs he would probably retire and it…

Dejounte Murray 17 Points Full Highlights (4/7/2018)

I’m not totally convinced that Dejounte Murray will be able to fill the Tony Parker role for the Spurs going forward. However, since Tony Parker is not able to fill the Tony Parker role either, and the Spurs obviously need that role to be filled, it’s fallen on Murray to be the new Tony Parker….

Manu Ginobili 17 Points Full Highlights (4/7/2018)

I would say that this was a “vintage” Manu Ginobili performance, but I don’t remember him ever having a reputation for simply burying teams under a barrage of buckets, so what he did tonight against the Blazers wouldn’t count as such. Certainly, he did sometimes do that, but that wasn’t his game, usually. This would…

Dejounte Murray 23 Points/6 Assists Full Highlights (4/4/2018)

I thought this game would be a career-high for Dejounte Murray, since he’s not exactly what you’d call a high-profile scorer, but it turns out that I totally forgot about that time his rookie year when he randomly scored 24 points. That game was way more anomalous than this one. Murray played eight minutes a…

Pau Gasol 22 Points Full Highlights (3/25/2018)

DownToBuck doesn’t go to too many live NBA games. It’s not convenient for me because it usually conflicts with my highlight-making schedule. However, I did happen to attend this game live in the flesh at the Bradley Center, and here are some of my observations: -Concession prices are way out of control. A chicken tenders…

Patty Mills 25 Points Full Highlights (3/23/2018)

It seems like it’s been so long since Patty Mills was an elite towel waver in Portland. His towels and his three-goggles (what happened to those, you never see them anymore), whatever he did on the court was overshadowed by his antics on the bench. And it has been a long time. Almost a decade…

Dejounte Murray 18 Points Full Highlights (3/15/2018)

Dejounte Murray had a double-double this game by getting twelve rebounds to go along with his eighteen points. He was only ten assists (or six steals) away from a triple-double. It was his tenth game with double-digit rebounds this season. But how does a point guard not named Russell Westbrook, even a tall one like…

Derrick White 14 Points Full Highlights (3/12/2018)

The commonly accepted wisdom is that the Spurs are good at developing young talent. The best, even. I have been working tirelessly to put an end to that blatant lie. I just got done with a 4-hour stint standing in front of my local fire department with a sandwich board that said on both sides…
