Gay's Jumper

The place is the FedExForum arena at Memphis and the name of the Grizzlies hero is Rudy Gay.

Rudy Gay, jersey #22, is the culprit for the 2nd loss of the San Antonio Spurs. With only 2.4 secs left on the 4th quarter, Manu Ginobili dunked and tied the game to 85-85. But then, Rudy Gay hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer, giving the Grizzlies a win against the Spurs. The Memphis Grizzlies outscored the San Antonio Spurs during the 1st half. But after halftime, the Spurs defense throttled the Grizzlies. Tim Duncan had another double-double collecting 16pts and 14 rebounds. Manu Ginobili got 20pts, 5 rebounds, 5 assists, and 3 steals. The Spurs' bench provided some depth adding 39pts. But unfortunately, Rudy Gay was at the right spot, at the right time and hit the winning shot. The Grizzlies won 88-85.

Rudy Gay's winning shot, nice view, eh ;-)

Feels like the playoffs, huh? Nah!.. It's just the game between the Dallas Mavericks and the Phoenix Suns or should I say Steve Nash and Dirk Nowitzki. Hmm. The Suns gave the Spurs their first loss at the Alamo City on their previous game. The Suns gave their effort to play good defense against the Spurs. But today, is a different story the Suns didn't beat the Mavs at the American Airlines Center, Dallas, for a reason I could not very well comprehend. The stats tell me that Suns should've won. They were shooting 52% while the Mavs were contained to 46%. What happened? Nash had an airball on a crucial moment of the game, maybe that was it. It would've made a difference like the shot Rudy Gay made. [sigh!] Nowitzki had a stunning 31pts. Erick Dampier was the king of the boards getting 10 rebounds. The flaw of the Suns play would probably be their rebounds. They were outrebounded by the Mavs. The Mavs won 108-105 against the Suns.

The team is depleted, I understand that. Spurs need to have all its players back to its best. Once that happens that sure the winning starts.
