Spurs backcourt Tony Parker and Gary Neal combined for 42 points to lead the Spurs over the Celtics 103-88. Paul Pierce and Jason Terry led the Celtics with 19 apiece in the losing effort. Here are some more quick observations: Jason Terry couldn't miss in the 1st half (17 points). Jason Terry couldn't make in the 2nd half (1 point). Manu Ginobili was limited to just over 4 minutes due to injury. This helped the Celtic stick around for 3 quarters. Tony Parker took over in the 4th quarter (Finished with 22 points and 8 assists) and outplayed Rondo for the game. The best Green on the court seemed to be Danny in silver. He hit a bunch of big shots. So did the Red Rocket, Matt Bonner. Finally found out who Nando De Colo plays for. And he's another quality foreign find by the Spurs front office. Another good game for Tiago Splitter against the Center deficient Celtics with 16 points and 8r ebounds. Jeff Green got the majority of minutes at the power forward position (31 to Ba...

Comments from the Other Side - Spurs 12/15

Again, not as much fun as when the Celtics win but still, some good stuff.  Boy, Spurs fans hate Jason Terry, just like the Rockets fans did.  I guess all those years in Dallas didn't endear him to the other Texas teams.  I find it ridiculous that Spurs fans were complaining about the fouls.  They had 9 free throws at the half while the Celtics had just 2 from defensive 3...

Tony Parker makes wild, crazy shot

Arguably one of the best NBA points guards in the 2000's, Spurs guard Tony Parker showed off his usual flair for the dramatic in the fourth quarter of San Antonio's game against the Boston Celtics last night. Watch as Tony P gets to the rack and somehow uses the top of the backboard to get his circus shot to fall:

Recap: Inconsistent Celts fall to Spurs

  Celtics drop their 2nd game in a row-tonight they lose to the Spurs in San Antonio, 103-88. This was basically more of the same from Boston tonight: turnovers, poor defense and the inability to make shots when it mattered. Tony Parker easily won the battle of marquee PG’s, lighting-up Rondo and the C’s for 22 points. Parker’s back-up, Gary Neal, was equally impressive, putting...

Matchup of the Game: Spurs vs Thunder

The matchup of the game when Oklahoma City Thunder play host to the San Antonio Spurs is between Tony Parker and Russell Westbrook. In their last meeting, both players had great games with 14 points and 11 assists from Parker and 18 points, 5 assists, and 8 rebounds from Westbrook. San Antonio will likely be without guard Manu Ginobili (quad contusion) and that will have...

Celtics' Pierce comments on difficulty of defending Spurs

The days when the San Antonio Spurs had one dimensional players besides the "Big 3" of Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, and Manu Ginobili are gone. The Spurs no longer rely on a simple pick and roll along with a Tim Duncan "4 Down" like they used to in a predictable offense. Now the Spurs have a whole team full of versatile players who can dribble, drive, kick the...

Rockets knock of Celtics, 101-89

After trailing the entire 4th quarter, Paul Pierce gave the Celtics signs of life with a big 3 that cut the Houston lead to 88-83.  On the next possession Rajon Rondo poked the ball away from James Harden and dove for the steal, but couldn't quit come up with it.  Harden then buried a deep three to stretch the lead back to 8 with 4:41 to go.  Boston would never get any closer...

C's don't really have a scorer lately. Is that a problem?

Does someone else need to start scoring? After the Celtics 95-94 OT loss in Philly a little over a week ago, Magic Johnson said something on the ESPN post-game show that has stuck with me.  Magic stated that in order for Boston to contend, Rajon Rondo was going to have to score 20-25 points a game.  While I don't believe Rondo is about to be that guy, I am starting to wonder...
