San Antonio is just mauling the Sonics....I was hoping for more from Seattle.
Sacramento escaped with a win against Utah in a game that could have just as easily gone to the Jazz. Fun game to watch.
Orlando and Charlotte play in the yawner of the day.....someone wake me up when it's over.
Duncan has a triple double (21 pts, 10 rebounds, 11 assists). SA just killing the Sonics.

my sonics over spurs pick looks like crap.....
i thought payton would kill tony parker, but parker's looked pretty good, figured he melt under the playoff spotlight. still only game one, and the sonics looked good for a half, but its not looking encouraging for us closet sonics fans.

Tony Parker is a defensive specialist.

The Sonics still have a chance against the Spurs, they are one of the most inconsistent teams in the league. They could very well come back and win the series. They split their regular season series with the Spurs. Surprisingly, Vin Baker played quite well for Seattle when it counted.
I am still pulling for the Sonics in this series! i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

Duncan was an absolute monster today. I like Seattle but even Payton's advantage over Parker isn't going to help. Duncan is going to sweep.
Parker does not look like a rookie, he looks like he is a young Duncan in his demeaner. He could be a match for Nash later if we see them. Everytime I watch him play he gets better and better.
Anyone watch the Jazz game? Looked more like floor ball than b-ball. Dang it, let's get down on the floor and play!
U-hoo! The Magic-Hornets game coming down to the final couple of possessions with 45 seconds left, with Charlotte leading by just two! Very exciting! i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif
T-Mac choked on a big FT. Made the second. Magic down by 1, with 28.8 to go.
TO exchange to end the game. Hornets pulled out a 1-point win at home. I wonder how many fans were on hand to enjoy this apparently pretty exciting game tonight i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif
<< Tony Parker is a defensive specialist. >>
The kid did pretty well offensively, too: 9-12 shooting for 21 pts, with 3 treys. Very, very impressive first playoff game for a 19-yr-old rookie indeed.

There were 10,000 fans in Charlotte today. 4,000 were Magic fans.

Jazz v. Kings
The (clearly incorrect) technical foul on Rusty LaRue for allowing Divac to step on him out of bounds.
That offical's mistake didn't get much discusssion, but it put a point on the board for the Kings. The final point-spread of three points could've been two, which would've changed final strategy.
THE NBA HAS TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT SO MANY CLEARLY ERRONEOUS OFFICIALS' CALLS THAT DIRECTLY AFFECT THE SCOREBOARD.
A missed palming violation here and there is one thing, but these grossly subjective (and incorrect )technical and flagrant fouls that allow one team to put points on the board is influencing the outcomes of games.
Do something, STERN! And I'm not talking about putting a muzzle on NBA broadcasters or team owners.

i know parker can play some good defense, but i figured payton would climb right inside his head, force him into turnovers, bad shots, etc. payton didn't have a bad game either, but parker handled himself really well. if he continues to play solid ball, the spurs will end up sweeping.i/expressions/face-icon-small-disgusted.gif
<< T-Mac choked on a big FT. >>
Not that T-Mac'll come and read this, but I just want to retract that earlier statement. I didn't know he was playing in pain through the whole game.
BTW, tough season for the Carter-McGrady family. Best wishes to the b-ball prodigy cousins.
