Two Teams Same Town

The San Anotnio Spurs lost to the Los Angeles Lakers one night before returning to the Staples center to face off against the Los Angeles Clippers where the Texas boys found the big W. Four days after defeating the Clippers the Spurs showed thier morale with another large score. They put the bad game against the Lakers solidly behind them and kept the ball moving forward. The Clippers outscored the Spurs by 2 points in the third quater but it was not enough to catch back up from the spurs 16 point lead early on. Players like Brent Barry, who went 5 of 6 shots from 3 point range, and Tony Parker who led the victory with 21 points came out strong and continued that style of play for the rest of the game.
By the way, the NBA has decided to go back to using the old ball next week so if you haven't seen they new one yet you might want to buy a ticket or turn on the game. The San Antonio Spurs play the Minnesota Timberwolves tomorrow, Wednesday the 13th at 8:00pm.

Losing won't Last

The San Antonio Spurs lost to the Golden State Warriors and then the Utah Jazz bringing about thier first losing streak. Instantly the boys banded together and shut that down with a win over The Sacramento Kings on December 2nd. The Spurs were in control leading most of the game but things seemed to fall apart near the end of the 3rd quarter when the Kings erased a 17 point defecit. Kevin Martin hit 25 of his 30 points at this time. The Texas Boys were hitting 50% of shots from beyond the free throw line and that helped hold the lead as well as Bruce Bowens 6 succesful 3 pointers. It came down to a 2 point game. A game that could have been won if Mike Bibby had hit his Half Court shot as the buzzer went off ending the first half. The San Anotnio Spurs, 13-5, still lead the Dallas Mavericks, 12-5. Two Texas Teams doing very very well.
