On this episode of the News 4 SA-Project Spurs, San Antonio Spurs Roundtable, Jeff Garcia and Aaron Preine breakdown the Spurs 12-1 start of the new season.
Is it fools gold considering the sub-par teams they are beating in the winning streak? Are they any positives or negatives about the hot start to the season? The panel breaks it all down.
To end the show, Jeff and Aaron look at Tim Duncan's struggles from the field and ponder if Tony Parker is playing a bit too much early in the season.
All this and much more on this episode of the Spurs Roundtable.
At 13-1, the San Antonio Spurs are now off to their best franchise start since the 2010-11 season. Is this Spurs team the real deal? Is the defense as good as the numbers claim them to be? Maybe.
Jospeh versus Mills, Derrick Rose is hurt again, Kobe's new contract, and the early rumblings of trade talk. Quixem Ramirez (@Quixem) and Jose Grijalva (@JRG1023) join host Aaron Preine (@DukeOfBexar) to break all this down and more on the one and only Spurscast. The original Spurs Podcast.

AT&T CENTER--Seated in front of his locker, quickly changing clothes before the horde of cameras make their way two seats over and invade his space for Manu Ginobili's customary post game media scrum, Boris Diaw hastily throws on a custom t-shirt with a cartoon likeness of himself. His physique, while far removed from the Charlotte Bobcat post-lockout days that spurred a thousand overweight jokes, still remains far from the sculpted pinnacle of physical perfection we associate with world class athletes.
Conversing with Diaw is Matt Bonner, a pale, red-headed big man who looks and dresses like what you what expect from a basketball player from the basketball hotbed of New Hampshire. Alongside Manu Ginobili, Marco Belinelli, and Patty Mills, the San Antonio Spurs second unit is perhaps the least physically imposing lineup in the NBA today. And perhaps its most entertaining.no comments
AT&T CENTER - It’s Monday evening, as the San Antonio Spurs (12-1) prepare to host their Southwest Division opponents, the New Orleans Pelicans (6-6). Though the teams will see each other at least three more times this season, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich and Pelicans coach Monty Williams had some early remarks in preparation for the game, and in one question, my two-year streak of being “Pop’d” came to an end.

Popovich: “It just makes you sick when somebody like that goes down. It’s beyond comprehension, you just feel terrible for the kid.”

After being one of the key contributors in past San Antonio Spurs' playoff runs, Gary Neal was faced with a decision to either stay with a perennial championship contender or search for a bigger role and cash in with another team.
As many before him have learned a bigger paycheck doesn’t always equal happiness or a shot at a title.
As the Spurs are off their scorching 12-1 start, Neal maybe watching from a far pondering what might have been. The Milwaukee Bucks’ current seven game losing streak probably is helping matters either.no comments
The San Antonio Spurs (12-1) will host the New Orleans Pelicans (6-6) tonight at the AT&T Center as the Spurs will look to push their winning streak to 11 games in a row.
The Spurs are coming off a thrashing of the Cavaliers winning 126-96. Danny Green finished with a game-high 17 points while Patty Mills came off the bench and finished with 15 points.
The Pelicans are coming off a 104-100 win over the Cavaliers as well. Anthony Davis paced the Pelicans with 17 points and 13 rebounds.
And as the Spurs hope to continue their winning ways, here are five things to watch for in tonight's contest:
• The Spurs are 6-0 when Tiago Splitter scores in double figures.no comments
AT&T CENTER--Misery, and cold fronts, seem to follow the Cleveland Cavaliers where ever they go these days. With a drearily cold drizzle arriving at the arena roughly around the same time as their team bus, the Cavaliers found no refuge in the warm confines of the AT&T Center.
Inside the Cavaliers ran into the NBA's hottest team on a night when the San Antonio Spurs managed to correct the few flaws that had plagued them this early in the season. Namely, Tim Duncan reached into his old bag of tricks to solve a new problem, shrugging off his cold spell with a vintage bank shot from the wing. Duncan shot 4-for-6 from the field, Tiago Splitter picked up where he left off from the night before, dropping in a variety of hook shots and quick step through moves (with a dunk no less), and the game was over faster than Cavaliers coach Mike Brown could say, "Dellavedova, you're starting off guarding Tony Parker tonight."no comments
