vs. sas: Opponent Game Thread Highlights

Today’s Opponent Game Thread host: Pounding the Rock.

Holy crap, Spurs fans. 2,150 comments.

According to Pop, the Jazz have always been a measuring stick for the Spurs. Every season, Pop gets to figure out how our boys will react to one of the best system offenses the NBA has ever seen. The Jazz have been running nearly the same offense for the past 22 years under the incomparable Jerry Sloan. I want you to sit and think for a second. Jerry Sloan was coaching the Jazz when Robinson was still in the Navy, Pop had just gotten out of the CIA and joined Larry Brown as an assistant for the Spurs and our starting center hadn’t even been born yet. In a league where the average coach spends 3 years with a team before being fired, Sloan has been nothing short of amazing. The only serious criticism of him is that he never won a title.

Oh, and apparently Sean Elliot (Spurs commentator) spent all night talking about AK’s hair, while Brent Barry (NBA commentator) will talk about anything but Tony Parker when discussing the Spurs.

Thank goodness we don’t have Mark Jackson tonight.

Sometimes fouls should be called you know.
by bj1der on Jan 27, 2011 11:00 AM CST

Yeah geez maybe Utah’s strategy is to foul more than the refs can call
by greyberger on Jan 27, 2011 11:01 AM CST

finally a foul
by spursfan87 on Jan 27, 2011 11:05 AM CST

The Jazz are always so foul-happy; I wonder if they’re even more foul crazy at home since they can expect fewer calls against them.

Kirilenko is anooying me

It’s the hair.
by SinCitySpur on Jan 27, 2011 11:21 AM CST

I wonder if his wife allows him one shitty haircut a year.
by Hipuks on Jan 27, 2011 11:22 AM CST

how come? don’t you like the flowing hair…
by audreypots on Jan 27, 2011 11:21 AM CST

I dont like him stealing the ball
by mission20 on Jan 27, 2011 11:22 AM CST

would we want deron?
by theonlyromeo on Jan 27, 2011 11:27 AM CST

The Spurs are solely lacking in the bearded players area.
by Hipuks on Jan 27, 2011 11:28 AM CST

And therefore lacking in douchebags? Or hipsters?
by silverandblack_davis on Jan 27, 2011 11:29 AM CST

Douchebags? We’re the classiest organization in the history of classiness. I don’t know about hipsters, some NBA players dress like idiots when not playing.
by Hipuks on Jan 27, 2011 11:31 AM CST

I was talking about Deron’s douche-y beard.
by silverandblack_davis on Jan 27, 2011 11:32 AM CST

We gotta get Pop to grow one of those and maybe wear some Ed Hardy’s clothing.
by Hipuks on Jan 27, 2011 11:33 AM CST

Pop is one of those people that’s impossible to imagine except for the way they are right now.
by Hipuks on Jan 27, 2011 11:37 AM CST


It’s incredible how inept the Jazz are at defending the paint. I never thought Jefferson was so bad at D.
by LatinD on Jan 27, 2011 11:31 AM CST

Yea. I knew he was bad but not this bad.
by bj1der on Jan 27, 2011 11:32 AM CSTs

And Okur is useless. And Millsap is always outside the paint. What’s wrong with this picture?
by LatinD on Jan 27, 2011 11:32 AM CST

Maybe they grew up as guards.
by bj1der on Jan 27, 2011 11:33 AM CST

Jazz are playing like a thug version of the Suns
by greyberger on Jan 27, 2011 12:13 PM CST

For a bunch of Mormons this arena is pissed off. When they’re not booing their team they’re booing the refs.
At this point I’m hoping the Spurs are just the more consistent, stable and versatile team and will be able to outlast the madness to come in the fourth quarter… so far that has been the case.
by greyberger on Jan 27, 2011 12:38 PM CST

They’re angry without liquor. That takes real focus.
by SpurredOn on Jan 27, 2011 12:39 PM CST


WHO THE F*&K IS JEREMY EVANS?
by spursfan87 on Jan 27, 2011 12:32 PM CST

by audreypots on Jan 27, 2011 12:33 PM CST

we have seen our hero now — a random Utah player having a play of his career
by Kondor on Jan 27, 2011 12:33 PM CST

Jeezum, #40 has arms to the moon.
by ramirezm315 on Jan 27, 2011 12:36 PM CST

by spursfan87 on Jan 27, 2011 12:42 PM CST

by r21x on Jan 27, 2011 12:42 PM CST

A guy. He can finish alley oops.
by LatinD on Jan 27, 2011 12:43 PM CST

random guy playing like an all-star against the Spurs
by Kondor on Jan 27, 2011 12:44 PM CST

by Kondor on Jan 27, 2011 1:03 PM CST

He played his little douchey beard off.
by Hipuks on Jan 27, 2011 1:07 PM CST
