Spurs 12-0 at home

Manu Ginobili of the San Antonio Spurs against Utah Jazz' Carlos Boozer

Yes. The San Antonio Spurs has won against the Utah Jazz without Tim Duncan. The starting lineup of the Utah Jazz included Deron Williams, Ronnie Brewer, Carlos Boozer, Andrei Kirilenko, & Mehmet Okur. The San Antonio Spurs on the other hand has placed Manu Ginobili back to the bench and started with Tony Parker, Michael Finley, Francisco Elson, Bruce Bowen, and Matt Bonner. By halftime, the Jazz led by only a point, 51-50. But then came the 4th quarter, the Spurs got into their rhythm, outscoring the Jazz and winning 104-98. As expected, Manu Ginobili excelled with 37pts, 6 assists, 3 steals [which he does very well], and oh! a block. Fabricio Oberto led the Spurs in rebounds having a total of 11. And Michael Finley, back as a starter, contributed to the Spurs win by having 15pts, four of which were 3-pointers. And Tony Parker? Well, he was in a bad shooting mood but still added 16pts and 7 assists, not bad. Winning against the Jazz at the AT&T Center meant a 12-0 record at home for the Spurs. Kampai!!

Carlos Boozer and Deron Williams each had 28pts. I guess the Jazz duo weren't enough to beat even a Duncan-less Spurs. So, has the Utah Jazz measured their aptitude after losing to the San Antonio Spurs "without" Tim Duncan? I bet they had. Regardless of the Jazz' loss to the Duncan-less Spurs, they were more determined and skilled now than the Jazz who faced the Spurs during last season's Western Conference Finals. Maybe next year, January 28, 2008, the Utah Jazz would be able to beat the Spurs in the EnergySolutions Arena. To the fans, just don't throw stuffs okay?

Toronto Raptors 93 Houston Rockets 80

The Raptors celebrate home win with the return of Chris BOSH to the line up after missing the last few games through injury.

Carlos DELFINO did produce a reasonable performance with 12 points, 8 rebounds, 2 assists & a steal.

Luis SCOLA was struggling this time for the Rocket, probably with some foul troubles. In the end he only manages 2 points, 5 rebounds & 3 assists.

Detroit Pistons 104 Charlotte Bobcats 85

A sad note as Walter HERRMANN was nowhere to be seen.

It is my choice Sports Fanatic. And I don't think there's a law in the NBA saying that you can't go for two or more teams especially if that pertains to the Spurs, the Mavs, and the Suns. I like them because they are great. And no, I don't believe that Bruce Bowen is a jerk. He's just so goood at what he's doing, playing tough defense. ;-) Hope you could stopover again, soon.
