Tony Parker hit 8-of-14 shots for 19 points, one rebound, three assists and two steals in Wednesday's win.

Parker has been in an awful slump lately, but finally broke out of it tonight. Some more rebounds and assists would have been nice, but we're not going to complain about this line from a guy who had scored six or fewer points in four of his previous five games.
Mar 5 - 2:01 AM

Kawhi Leonard hit 9-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers for 21 points, five rebounds, one assist, three steals and a block in Wednesday's win.

Tonight was the night the all-cat freaks came out, as Leonard, Draymond Green and Nicolas Batum all played well, which hasn't happened consistently this season.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan had just five points, six rebounds, four assists and three blocks in 19 minutes on Wednesday.

He was in foul trouble and finished with five of them, but a 19-minute night is a lot more attractive than a DNP-CD, so hopefully tonight's limited run was enough to avoid a DNP any time soon.

Tony Parker said he's frustrated with his recent play and is trying to find his old form.

The 33-year-old has struggled to find consistency this season and is only averaging 6.8 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 4.0 assists over his last five games. "I have not been the same since I came back, and it's still bothering me," Parker said. "Everybody knows. I am not going to use that as an excuse. I am just going to work it out until it gets better." While Parker's recent stats aren't worthy of standard fantasy league ownership, he's a starting point guard in the NBA and is worth holding onto for his upside.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

Tim Duncan said that the Spurs "need to be confident," adding that it's been "shot for a while."

Duncan didn't leave much to guess about with his words. "We’re going to start building it back and winning some games. That’s the only way it’s going to come," Duncan added. Now with two straight wins after four straight losses, the Spurs will look to take advantage of a soft week that includes the Kings, Nuggets and Bulls.

Danny Green is averaging just 8.7 points, 5.5 boards, 0.5 assists, 0.3 blocks, 0.7 steals and 1.3 treys in 22.7 minutes during his six second-half games this season.

Besides the rebounds, all of those numbers are considerably down from his pre-break numbers. Green was one of the biggest fantasy steals in the first half, but he was one of the bigger roller-coaster rides of the 2013-14 season. Still, he is worth owning in all leagues and he should be fine. If your trade deadline hasn't passed, try to buy low.
Mar 1 - 10:30 AM

Kawhi Leonard dominated on offense during a 101-74 win over the Suns on Saturday with 22 points, 10 rebounds, three steals and two blocks.

After a very rough start to the second half, Leonard is back. He was taking too many jumpers and he's gone back to being more aggressive. Kawhi had a nice line of 17 points, seven rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal on Friday, so his fantasy owners can finally start to feel great about him. We're expecting a big finish thanks to a friendly schedule.
Feb 28 - 11:44 PM

Tony Parker scored six points with two assists on 3-of-13 from the field against the Suns on Saturday.

Since an impressive start to his second half in a loss to the Clippers, Parker has been awful. In his last five, he averaged 6.8 points, 4.0 dimes and 0.6 steals on 26.0 percent from the field. Luckily for Parker and the Spurs, they're off until Wednesday, so maybe that will help. He's still worth owning in standard leagues.

Tim Duncan - F/C - Spurs

All the Spurs are available to play against the Suns on Saturday.

It's a big game against the Suns and fantasy owners of the Spurs can start them like they normally would.
Feb 28 - 7:49 PM

Tony Parker scored 19 points on 7-of-16 shooting (1-of-2 from deep, 4-of-4 from the line) with five rebounds and four assists in Friday's win.

Parker and Manu Ginobili (16 points, two threes, two boards, one block) played a little bit better than they have been, beating a Kings squad that didn't have DeMarcus Cousins but struggling to do so. Parker is worth a look if he has been dropped, but there's no guarantee he pays off big for owners in standard formats.

A frustrated Gregg Popovich told the Spurs to "figure it out" after losing their fourth consecutive game on Wednesday.

After losing to the Jazz on Monday, Popovich gave his message to the team and left the locker room, but was forced to repeat the message after Wednesday's loss to Portland. "The players have to participate in their own recovery," Popovich said after the game. Pop's tactic may not work with other teams, but he'll have to hope the veteran presence of Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker will help turn the team's fortunes around.
Feb 26 - 11:27 AM

Manu Ginobili played just 13 minutes and hit 1-of-5 shots for two points, one rebound and two assists on Wednesday.

He might have been jealous of Tony Parker getting all of Gregg Popovich's attention recently, so he decided to put up a line just as brutal as Parker's tonight (Parker had two points, four assists, four turnovers on 1-of-8 shooting). Ginobili hasn't scored more than eight points in three straight games and the Spurs have lost four in a row. If you feel like dropping the old man, we're not going to stop you. And maybe, just maybe, old age has finally caught up with San Antonio.
Feb 26 - 3:03 AM

After being called out by his coach, Tony Parker hit rock bottom in Wednesday's loss to the Blazers, hitting 1-of-8 shots for two points, two rebounds, four assists, a steal and four turnovers.

"If he’s not the Tony Parker of past years, we’re not going anywhere," Gregg Popovich said on Tuesday. Parker will eventually get it turned around, but he's been brutal recently, scoring a grand total of nine points in his last three games, while the Spurs have now dropped four straight.
Feb 26 - 3:00 AM

Kawhi Leonard hit 5-of-13 shots for 14 points, eight rebounds, three assists, four steals, a block and a 3-pointer on Wednesday, but the Spurs lost their fourth straight game, this time to the Blazers.

He was a team-high -13 +/- tonight, and had also been struggling for his fantasy owners, mainly due to poor shooting and some confidence issues. There wasn't much wrong with tonight's line, and you have to think he's on the verge of righting the ship soon. This was at least a step in the right direction. Tim Duncan added 20 points and eight boards in another Spurs loss, and they're just four games ahead of streaking New Orleans in the playoff chase.
Feb 26 - 2:34 AM

Head coach Gregg Popovich said that Tiago Splitter lost his starting spot because he hasn't been playing well.

"Tiago’s suffered from injuries this year," Popovich said. "He just hasn’t gotten in shape and so far hasn’t had the kind of year he had last year. It’s been tough for him." Splitter played just seven minutes in Monday's loss to the Jazz and coach Popovich has opted to start the legend known as Aron Baynes at center for six of the past seven games. It's clear that Splitter is falling out of favor fast, and he is not worth owning in almost any league at the moment.
