    I'm not gonna be happy unless we get a W in Memphis. I still get chills thinking about last year, I won't let my guard down yet!

    Memphis was able to claw back into that one, but it was more a product of San Antonio going cold, foul trouble and bad decisions than it was anything that Memphis was doing. Memphis doesn't have any players than can shoot you right back into the game like Golden State did. They just capitalized on Spurs mistakes, but not in a flurry.

    San Antonio scored 61 in the middle two quarters and 9 in the 4th. That's not because Memphis turned up the intensity. SA just went cold.

    Spurs will win this in five.

    all you need to know is the spurs with TD, +22, with him on the bench, -18. THAT is why the grizzlies came back, they didnt figure anything out, unless its how to get TD in foul trouble.

    All teams have floppers. Every single one of them. And why? Because it works. They'd be stupid not to do it.

    Tony Allen had a great acting job, and what did it get them? 4 points and a chance in OT. I can't even hate on that.

    TD's foul trouble actually helped the Spurs (+/- notwithstanding), because he was the only ones with fresh legs in OT. But, agreed in that, if TD wasn't in foul trouble, they win it going away.

    flopping is one thing....and i really have no issues with flopping, especially from defensive players who have been almost completely removed of any ability to play defense by the NBA rules committee, but faking an injury is another animal altogether.

    As far as the flagrant foul all.....in the NBA that I grew up watching, that was just a hard playoff foul. However, in this modern, wussified version of the NBA, that was definitely a flagrant foul. So because of the current rules, I have no issue with the call......cause I know I would be calling for a flagrant foul had Memphis done a similar foul to a Spurs player.

    The officiating did bother me in the 2nd half though. For the first 6 quarters, the refs allowed both teams to bang, claw, bump, push, and play big boy basketball. Then, in the 2nd half of game 2, every little bit of contact was being called. It was frustrating to watch. I can see if the teams are getting a bit out of control, but neither was doing so. If they are going to call it tight, do so from the being and stay that way for 48. If they are going to let the teams play, do so for 48 (unless it gets overly heated). Both Conley and Duncan got called for a cheap foul that neither committed and it forced both of them to the bench prematurely.

    Now onto Pop, I have no idea why Danny Green got so few minutes in the 4th quarter. His defense has been outstanding and he is very efficient on offense. I feel Pop screwed up by not playing Danny more.

    Well onto Memphis, and I feel the long layoff will be very beneficial to the Spurs.

    GO SPURS GO

    He must have beaten out Ginobili for it :lmao:

    Manu acts like he's been shot any time he's touched.

    Hibbert is long, but his arms ain't long enough to block it from the bench. Nice coaching, Vinny Del Vogel.

    Apparently the league has fined Allen for the faking of his head injury after the Manu flagrant.....he was fine $5,000.

    hahaha Memphis sucks so bad they have nothing outside of Gasol and Zbo. Only reason they got by OKC is obviously cause Russell was out. God I cant wait to see Miami smoke the Spurs lil guards lol. Birdman has way too much energy for old man Duncan too.

    Miami still needs to get by Indiana. It should be 2-0 Pacers, if not for poor Indiana defense on the last two Heat possessions. Indy has home court now.

    I believe Miami wins the series, but I will not be shocked at all if Indy beats them.
