Taking the Offensive

Spurs do what they do best and that is stopping other teams from scoring. How did the top defense do it again? They did it by holding the Washington Wizards to 73 points and keeping the Wizards' seven game winning streak nothing more but a 7 game winning streak.

In 101-73 victory the Spurs held the wizards to just 31.8 percentage shooting, and that is because the past 10 games, Washington was averaging 100 plus points.

The Buck(s) Stops Here

There was four Spurs with double digits in last nights win against the Milwaukee Bucks, first and foremost was Time Duncan with 21 points, Tony Parker with 20 points,Manu Ginobili added 15, and newly acquired Brent Barry had 11 points. With the that talented to group the San Antonio Spurs were able to complete a season sweep over the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Spurs also have the NBA's top defensive holding the Bucks to 79 points while the Spurs had 94 and also held the Bucks to a 41.3 percent shooting. I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch but the Spurs are my pick this year to take it all.

Go Spurs!

Bad day at Work

It wasn't the best outing for Tim Ducan. Then again we all have are bad days at work. Duncan was 6 of 17 with 14 points. That not to mention the hard time he was having with Chris Webber, who twice tied him up for jump balls.

On the day Manu Ginobili had 18 points and Horry did his best with a season high 12 points.

The Spurs where dropped 86-81 and are now sitting at 25-7.
