Finals Preview?

The San Antonio Spurs are in town today to take on the defending champs.  The Spurs have a defensive mentality, dominant big man, quick-as-lightning point guard, and a wing that is capable of scoring in bunches.  So they’re exactly the kind of team that can make it through the west and come back here in June.

Of course, I’m hyping this game up because Chuck and I will be going.  And I’m calling it a potential Finals preview because it will piss off those idiot Laker fans that continue to try to spam us.  Face it, Laker fans.  The Spurs are good enough to beat you.  Your Finals berth is not guaranteed.

Anyway, since Chuck and I will be at the game, that means we won’t be carrying on our new tradition of live blogging these afternoon games.  However, you can still have some fun with us on Twitter.  I’ll be posting some observations from the game, and maybe even a few pictures.   Or, if you don’t have a Twitter account (or if you don’t want to set one up), you can go to our forums.

This also means the post-game update will be a little late.  Bear with us.  We’ll have to sober up before coming home.  Hopefully we’ll all be celebrating.   Half the Spurs haven’t played in a week.  Duncan, Ginobili, Parker and Finley all sat out Tuesday’s game… so they haven’t played since Monday.  Meanwhile, we’ll have to see if KG’s back is an issue after he got pushed from behind in the Knicks game.

  1. The Spurs squad has been resting since Monday night, so the oldies could be at their best today.

  2. John and Chuck where are you sitting?

  3. I think the next game is the REAL finals preview

  4. How many games will I get paid buy the word hubie brown call during the finals he’s the worst announcer ever !!!!!!!!!!

  5. Hubie Brown is better than those pea-brains that will be calling the lakers/cavs game

  6. sorry the spurs can NOT run with the lakers in a 7 game series especially if the lakers have home court

  7. Give it up to the Spurs they played really well. They guarded the 3 line well and we had a hard time getting good looks. Big 3 just looked exhausted – Its totally obvious now our bench isn’t good enough to beat top elite teams. We’ve lost to the Cavs, Lakers, and Spurs. That steal at the end by Manu was huge (Break away foul) sealed it for SA.

  8. Hate to say it, but with our team as it is now, we cannot beat the Cavs, Spurs, or Lakers in the Playoffs/Finals. Our inability to execute down the stretch in both the Lakers and Spurs games proves it. Our guys, even Paul and Ray, just seem nervous and tentative at the ends of games. We aren’t playing like champions, and unless Danny can pull the trigger on some moves, we aren’t going to be there this year. Our bench, though they played well tonight, is just too shallow, and our starters are getting gasses in crunch time.

  9. Getting GASSED. Not gasses. Sorry.

  10. yea i guess you’re right finals preview, spurs win 4-2 with ease, but i like lakers-cavs finals

  11. What about Brad Miller? Is he available? He’d be a great big that can hit the open J, pass down low. He’s the body we need. Any chance we pry him from Sac with walker/giddens and cash kind of move?

  12. There is no way we can match salaries to get brad miller; he would have to get bought out

  13. everyone saying we cant beat the spurs in a 7 game series, calm down..yes we can, popovich said it himself, the spurs had 5 days off, have a ton of pride and came in and won 1 ball game…give them credit but our guys are exhausted, and it has alot to do with having no help from the bench. the bench is gabage, probab;y the worst in the league

  14. Oh and Matt Bonner having a career day, and it been like “a home game” for him because he got home cooking from his moms didnt exactly help…that was a deciding factor, and its too bad we dont have roger mason instead of tony the brick allen

  15. Lakers will annihilate the Spurs.

    They were supposed to be better than us.
    The Celtics were supposed to be better than us.
    The Cavs were supposed to be better than us.

    We haven’t done squat yet, but don’t write off the Lakers. Beat team in the league.

  16. Fakers just beat Cavs at home. I think it’s obivious (as much as I hate to admit it) we will probably face Fakers again in Finals. Of all people to light us up today..Matt frickin’ Bonner..? Man…Real story though is FREE-THROWS! We had twice as many pts in the paint, but the Spurs shot 90% from charity stripe and we shot 70. That and the stupid clear-path foul killed us. Well, we’ll see what we’re really made of now..No home games for almost 3 weeks. Strap in C’s fans!!!!! John, we’re were you sitting? I was in Section 17 front row….
