Could be wrong (just following the gamecast), but it looks like Orlando just beat the Spurs on an in-bound play with .8 seconds left. Spurs have a 2 point lead, Jameer Nelson ties it with 5 seconds to go, Howard blocks Parker with .8 left, they get a timeout, and Turkoglu finds Howard for a layup on the in-bound pass. Pretty amazing.

Looks like the Spurs are out of the race for first place in the southwest division. They have to pay attention that the Rockets donīt overtake them.

Yep, great games by both... 30pts (11-14) for D12 and 31pts (12-20) for Jameer!!

The way they are playing lately... I'd say the Rockets would easily finish ahead of 'em.

Wow, awesome! I think Andrew Bogut and the Bucks beat them the same way last year.

Looks like this year it will be Popovich causing the Orlando locker room yelling incident.

Honestly, this all makes me a little sad. Don't get me wrong, I do so enjoy seeing the Spurs sucking so badly, but I'm also a little disappointed. As the season started, the media did everything in its power to hype up the Mavs/Spurs rivalry, but the Spurs just aren't there anymore. I miss last years rivalry like I miss the Mavs/Kings rivalry. I know the Mavs/Spurs rivalry isn't completely dead, but the Spurs just suck these days.

I think this means the spurts will have to make some sort of move this year.

Well, that was one of the most ferocious lay-ups I've ever seen. He also had a nice "deflection" on Parker's game-winning attempt.

Don't worry, the rivalry will be back if they meet in the playoffs.

I agree. I can't believe the Spurs will stick with what they have now.

That dunk was indeed ferocious. Howard's a man-child for real!

That alley-oop dunk to win the game may be the play of the year! And the block on the other end by Howard that led to the alley-oop was unreal...the guy get so high.

I don't know what all this feeling sorry for the Spurs is, though. They're still a great team that could win the entire thing. Let's not drop our guard on these guys just yet.

If Miami can do it, ANYONE can do it.

dead on 5-0. he just LOST howard. howard is a freakin' beast. how do you just lose the guy? and he didn't even TRY to jump to deflect the pass. granted, no way he would have gotten up as high as howard, but still, you gotta try.

nice redick sighting indeed!

What was funny was hearing the announcers "thats not bad D by timmy, he just cant jump with howard" actually its really horrible D and if dirk nowitzki has done it all we would have heard was how that separates him from duncan. The problem is that as you mentioned LOSING howard was the bad D, not getting out jumped. In that situation the only play that is truly dangerous from a guy like howard is an alley-oop. just box him out like its a rebound.

I'm gonna go ahead and say that, yeah, the Howard alley-oop to beat the spurs is the most impressive play of the year.

all he had to do was box him out when the ball was in the air, and the game was over..

this is just like the play earlier in the year when timmy got dunked on by Lebron..he went stumbling back AND the ball bounced off his head.

I don't know--

That loss hurt like hell...still does.

I've seen that play a few times on ESPN-- I think it was a combination of a great play by Dwight Howard and probably less than stellar Defense by Tim.

Still--with a vertical leap like that--there may not have been much that anyone could so.

I still think the Spurs can defeat the Suns in a seven game series, but unfortunately, unless the Front Office comes off with some kind of deal, I would think the Mavs would beat the Spurs in a seven game series without much effort.

Once he let howard get around him and elevate he was screwed. Theres nothing anyone but Chandler or Josh Smith could do at that point. Those are the only two guys i can think of that could get up enough to try to steal it(amare pre knee injury too) but the problem is that he let himself get in that position in the first place. Which is reflective of one of the problems with his D ive been pointing out. He has lost ALOT of lateral quickness.
