12:00 remaining, second quarter: Pop just gave Doris Burke solid answers to each question she asked. Twitter instantly speculated that maybe the league took some action and asked him to tone it down? Who knows. But I don’t like it.
11:45 One of Burke’s questions to Popovich was to assess the offense in the first quarter. He basically said, he didn’t want the Spurs to get too reliant on the three.
11:33 Danny Green launches 30-foot three pointer. Misses.
8:31 Andris Biedrins comes in for Andrew Bogut, who heads to the locker room. Andris Biedrins is way too tan. Like, his spray on tan is more brown than the basketball floor at Oracle.
7:11 Beautiful move by Tiago Splitter. He fakes the high pick-and-roll with Parker. Biedrins overplays the pick, letting Parker deliver a precise bounce pass in between two defenders to Splitter, who’s streaking into the lane for a floater over Harrison Barnes. 8-0 run.
6:44 “Splitter was a great player in Spain. Was the Spanish League MVP and has been a huge part of their bench.” – Mike Breen, who obviously doesn’t watch Spurs games to know Tiago starts. ESPN, y’all.
6:13 Matt Bonner hook shot. Drink.
2:51 Hey, it’s another Mark Jackson huddle. Because that’s what I want to hear is more Mark Jackson.
1:15 Harrison Barnes goes to block Diaw under the basket, gets tangled in mid-air and lands on the side of his skull. My stomach still hurts rewatching this. And ESPN won’t stop showing countless replays. Glad he gets up and is okay.
0:03.7 Cory Joseph lets Steph Curry drive the length of the floor for a layup. Pop is LIVID as he power walks down the floor to the locker room, right behind Joseph, as play continues.
Spurs 47, Warriors 40. Halftime.
