The spurs are a great team. No denying that, but i think alot of the lucky plays they got came from the home court advantage...they will definitely respect us, so we have to win this one. NO excuses.

Be helpful if Parker is still out, but with a full days rest, I kinda doubt it...

this is playoff time...doesnt matter what is on the other jersey.. We have to find a way to get the W and especially at home..Cant wait til Rudy is back 2.5 weeks..2-2 without Rudy, even if we keep the .500 pace, we will be ok..

By the way, I'd MUCH rather see the JWill/Conley backcourt in this game than letting Mayo get any amount of significant playing time. He was absolutely WORTHLESS tonight.

16 minutes, 0-3 from the field, 3 TOs (team leader) and 2 fouls.

Seriously, whats the point? So upsetting our FO couldn't get that trade to go through. Even though it probably would have been a mediocre trade on our part, we couldn't be doing much worse than what we've got right now in OJ.

We got this one in the bag expecially if Parker is out. We have to put Ginobili on his behind and make him a non factor.

Put Battier on Ginobili please.

That's why we re-hired him for.

What's the point of Conley on Manu?

Is this sarcasm? I seriously can't tell.


My buddy hooked me up with some free tickets for this one, can't wait to see the Grizz get this big W in person.

go ahead and take TP out of their rotation:


SpearsNBAYahoo: Spurs say guard Tony Parker has been diagnosed with a strained left soleus after undergoing a MRI and is expected to miss two to four weeks.

NO tony parker should equal a win for us...That kills thier bench depth and george hill is nowhere near what tony parker is in the pick and roll..

I actually think George Hill is a handful. Unlike Tony, he can shoot. He had his moments against us yesterday. A line up of him, Ginobili, Jefferson (all can hit 3's) and then you bring in Bonner, who can knock down 3's with the best of them, this isn't going to be any easier.

I still say we win this one, but its going to take the same effort we gave in San Antonio.

Without tony parker this is the exact same team we beat twice last year. Totally different team..and tony parker and waay faster than hill...ginobli will have to carry them 4 48 minutes and if we cant stop him thats on us...We have to do the little things like not leaving matt bonner ever..

I'm not a big fan of playing teams right after they suffered an injury to one of their stars. The team tends to rally for a game or two before coming back down.

It should be in our favor that they have beaten us twice though.

And I do hope that Gary Neal is still out. He's been an impressive reserve all year for them.
