11/11; 7:30 PM EST. FSNE

The Spurs, have won their last two games after losing to Dallas on Nov. 5. They have won four of their five games, playing two nights ago against the Charlotte Bobcats; winning by eight; 94 to 86 (boxscore). The Spurs were led by Tim Duncan's 29 points off 11-20 shooting to go along with ten rebounds; and Tony Parker's 23 points off 11-19 shooting to go along with his five rebounds and six assists. Off the bench, Manu Ginobili scored eight points to go along with four boards and five assists.

Boston last played the Memphis Grizzlies in an exciting buzzer-beater game, winning by one, 99-98 (boxscore) thanks to Ricky Davis' amazing last-second shot. The Boston Celtics were led by Paul Pierce's 29 points off 9-13 shooting to go along with his eight rebounds, seven assists, and three steals; and Ricky Davis' 18 points off 6-10 shooting with five boards, three assists, and two steals. Mark Blount (17 points off 8-14 shooting with five assits) and Delonte West (8/6/5/2) helped. The Celtics did not play good perimeter and transition defense and Doc Rivers killed the momentum by putting in obscure lineups that did not accomplish anything.

Tonight, we will be playing the best team in the league composed of the best player in the league (Tim Duncan), one of the most efficient wing players in the league (Manu Ginobili), a good young point guard (Tony Parker), and one of the best perimeter defenders in the league (Bruce Bowen). They also have a great bench consisting of Michael Finley, Robert Horry, Nick Van Exel, and Nazr Mohammed. Paul Pierce and Ricky Davis will have a tough time on offense due to the superb defense of Manu Ginobili, Bruce Bowen, and the best defender in the league, Tim Duncan. The Spurs play a fundamental type of game in which they do not allow the opposition to score while running the offense through Duncan with Ginobili and Parker creating points. Both teams are coming off one day of rest.

Spurs not afraid of the 'Luck of Irish'

The Spurs have dominated the regular season series against the Boston Celtics as of late The Spurs have won 21 of the last 22 games overall vs. the Celtics dating back to the 1993-94 season, winning the last 14 matchups against Boston. The Spurs also have a 15 game home win streak against the Celtics. The San Antonio-Boston matchup has seen two runs of dominance, although the Spurs have dominated the series as of late, the Celtics controlled the series during the 80’s as the Spurs lost 20 straight games to Boston between the 1979-80 season and the 1989-90 season before snapping the losing streak to the Celtics with a 97-90 win on 1/12/90 in the Boston Garden.

You said we last played the Bobcats winning by one on Davis' buzzer beater? I thought we played the Grizzlies?

Key matchups, for me, are Paul vs. Bowen and West vs. TP. I think TP will have his way with any point guard we put out there, he's just too fast. Nothing is gonna stop Parker from getting into the paint tonight.

Ladies and gentlemen, Fabricio Oberto bites his nails.*

Remember that before you cheer for the Spurs.

*I saw him today on the team bus...he was biting his nails.

So...What else is there to watch tonight?

:rofl: We're getting killed. At the pregame show, Greg and Gary were saying how "easy" this game will be for the Celtics. The Spurs were never worse...lol. As long as the Spurs have Duncan they're contenders.

Word.

They definitely still have Parker, Ginobli, Duncan. That's a better combination of 3 players than pretty much anyone in the league. I don't even watch the pregame show anymore. Those guys make me look like a rocket scientist.

Duncan and Parker have all but four of the 26 points the Spurs scored.

Tommy:

I have a very good feeling about this game.

26-10 Spurs.
