Timmy D. is back, and it's a whole new different game back at the Alamodome. Spurs up 27-10 after one.

Spurs up 55-26 at halftime. Wow. SA shot .511 in the first half, while SEA shot below .300.

The Spurs simply crushed the Sonics tonight.

I felt bad, the Sonics didn't have a chance from the beginning. Nothing worked for them. They got a few breaks in the 3rd but they were already in too big a hole that it didn't matter.

Well, let the Spurs knock off the Lakers, hopefully.

If I were the Lakers, I'd be a little concerned. The Lakers are still the heavy favorites in this series, especially if Robinson isn't 100%. But game 4 was a serious gut check for Duncan's supporting cast and while they didn't have the talent to compete with the Sonics, they never gave up. And the big question with Duncan is whether he would be distracted by his father's death, or whether he would be able to take that emotion and focus it into his game. 7 blocks says something.

And the fact that they play again on Sunday means they can carry the momentum of this emotional win over as momentum. If the Lakers have been sitting around getting smug over this series going to 5 games, they could definitely be in for a shock in the 1st game.

And the first game is in SA, right?

I had to change my answer. Someone will have to explain why the series starts off in LA?
