Analysis

More of this, please: Diaw/Duncan P&R

In this new segment called "More of this, please" we will be analyzing plays the Spurs should probably use more often. To start, let's take a look at a pretty 4/5 pick-and-roll between Diaw and Duncan.

Are the Spurs using the right lineups?

The Spurs love using a lot of different lineups instead of settling for a couple that work. But which of the Spurs' favorite five-man units are delivering and which are faltering?

Where have all the winners gone?

This has been a historical year in the NBA, but not for the right reasons.

Can the Spurs contain K. Love like they did Dirk?

The Spurs are showing improvement at containing big men that can create offense for themselves through jump shots, as their performance against Dirk Nowitzki shows. But can we expect the same type of success against guys like Aldridge and Love?

It looks like Malcolm Thomas is here to stay

The Spurs will not waive Thomas and his contract will become fully guaranteed for the rest of the season, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. But can he crack the rotation?

Westworld: The Blazers vs. Mike D'Antoni's Ghost

A high-scoring offensive team with little capability for consistent defense? A coach that trusts a precious few to deliver wins while rarely looking to utilize or develop his bench? This sounds familiar...

How will the Spurs survive Splitter's injury?

Tiago Splitter will be out 3-5 weeks with a shoulder sprain. Can the Spurs find an answer to the problems his absence will create?

Does the reverse layup king need new tricks?

While Splitter's defensive play has been fantastic this season, he seems to have regressed as an offensive player. Are the struggles here to stay or can Tiago turn things around?

Breaking down the Parker to Belinelli alley-oop

In a new wrinkle for San Anotnio's unabridged play book, the Spurs play off the defense's fear of the three-ball to get a shot at the rim.

Tiago Splitter for DPOY?

The Brazilian big man is having a tremendous impact on the league's fifth best defense, yet he's not getting nearly as much credit as he deserves
