Probable Starting Lineups:





6th Man:

vs.



Last meeting: 89-88 OT win for the Spurs on 1/10/2204

Should be another tough, very physical, low scoring game. The Spurs have lost two straight after beating these Pacers in SA, and the Pacers have beat the Hawks since their last matchup. Somebody else for the Spurs has to step up and provide a second scoring punch with Duncan. Meanwhile, the Spurs have to find a way to contain Artest, who torched them late in the last game. The Spurs have Ginobili back who can guard Miller, so now Bowen's assignment will be Artest. Should be a great game.

Good choice for a national TV game, this one should be a close contest. I'll go for the minor upset and say the Pacers pull this one off 83-80 to get revenge for last week's loss.

Let's see, are the good 'ol Spurs actually going to take the court against the Pacers? Hope so. I have my doubts on this game, but I am a Spurs fan, so here it is:

Spurs:82
Pacers:80

Another thriller down to the wire.

Man, I read the starting time wrong somehow, I thought it was at the half hour mark -- I've missed almost the whole first quarter. Spurs are down by ten with about a minute left in the quarter, not their best quarter to say the least.

25-17 Pacers at the end of the first. After a very slow start, the Spurs played better to get the lead down to single digits.


Spurs are shooting 7/18 (39%), and the Pacers are shooting 11/21 (52%). O'Neal with 8 points and 6 rebounds after 1.

The Spurs have come back with Duncan and Parker on the bench to cut the lead to 30-28.

6/12 from the free throw line for the Spurs.:upset:

46-39 Spurs at the half.

San Antonio leaders:

Manu Ginobili: 9 points, 3 assists, 5/6 FT
Tim Duncan: 8 points, 2 rebounds, 4 assists
Tony Parker: 6 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists
Ron Mercer: 6 points, 1 rebound, 5 MIN
Robert Horry: 2 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists


Indiana leaders:

Reggie Miller: 10 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists
Jamaal Tinsley: 8 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists
Jermaine O'Neal: 8 points, 7 rebounds, 2 blocks, 3 fouls
Jeff Foster: 6 points, 4 rebounds

The Pacers really struggled with JO out, and the Spurs took full advantage of that. The Spurs bench has really contributed, mainly Horry and Mercer. Ginobili has played great so far, and he has 6 FT attempts already. The Spurs outscored the Pacers 29-14 in that 2nd quarter.

With JO back in, the game should be more competitive.

The Spurs up and down night continues as they fall behind 71-65. Ginobili hasn't scored a basket yet in the second half, and Duncan only has 2 FGM.

:dead: :sour: :( :mad: :eek: :upset: :confused: :sigh:

Spurs lose 89-79, as they were out-scored 50-33 in the 2nd half.

Tim Duncan really played terrible tonight. He just couldn't hit a shot if his life depended on it. Speaking of terrible, Tony Parker sucked yet again. Charlie Ward was the only player that played like he wasn't scared out there.

Reggie Miller butchered the Spurs tonight, and so did Jermaine O'Neal, when he was actually on the floor.

San Antonio's "leaders":

Tim Duncan: 16 points, 9 rebounds, 7 assists, 6 blocks, 4/18 FG's
Tony Parker: 14 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 6 TO's
Charlie Ward: 13 points, 2 rebounds, 15 minutes
Manu Ginobili: 11 points, 3 rebounds, 7 assists, 7 FGA

Indiana's leaders:

Reggie "Punk ***" Miller: 28 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists
Jermiane O'Neal: 20 points, 10 rebouns, 5 blocks
Jamaal Tinsley: 9 points, 3 rebounds, 8 assists
Ron Artest: 7 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 5 TO's

In case you are wondering why Reggie Miller is a punk ***, he goes and jacks up a three with 13 seconds remaining in the game, when everybody stopped playing because the game was basically over. I hate you Reggie Miller.

Actually there was about 1.1 seconds different between game and shot clock, so they would've had to take a shot, plus it was near 35 feet which made it even sweeter. REGGIE!:yes:
