Wow. So marked the effect Mutombo has on opponents' inside game.

Still wonder what he could've done on a high-scoring team without a mature inside presence.

Duncan is mortal. He gets two fouls. 18-18 10:48 in second quarter left.

i am impressed...the refs have actually been calling it when duncan commits a foul, and they aren't calling it any time a net is within 5 feet of him. wow.

30-26 spurs . Looks good for Nets since Spurs cannot hold leads.

3 on duncan with 3:32 left in the second. wow is all i can say.

I think the league is trying to get this win for Nets so they cam up their ratings. But spurs are a better comeback team than with the lead.

45-34 nets at the half. should be an interesting second half.

As you can see, Duncan doesn't always get the benefit of the calls.

Mandyahl
06-11-2003, 08:47 PM
but this is the one game out of 10 i have seen that he has seriously been in foul trouble. the fact that we are noticing that he is actually getting calls against him speaks for the fact that calls usually go his way.

As Walton said, this is a very disturbing trend that complaining about the refs in media gets you calls the next game. It worked for Phil Jackson, and now it's working for Byron Scott

Mandyahl
06-11-2003, 08:58 PM
yeah, it's pretty sad that byron scott had to complain so that the refs would call the game correctly.

I think that calls on Duncan were right but my only complaint is the same fouls were not called in first three games and why would you change that. Its too much pressure on players to keep adjusting according to ref's.

Biggest lead of the series for NJ 15. I would generally say that is not much but the way these two teams score thats a lot.

We got the Dunk of the Year. WOW.

Mandyahl
06-11-2003, 09:19 PM
yeah, that jefferson dunk was SWEET!

Popīs trying hard to get tossed. So how does it feel to be on the other end Pop? (actually the game is called pretty even IMO, 4 on Collins and Robinson, 3 on TD and K-Mart. 17 FTīs for the Nets, 15 for the Spurs. Maybe Popīs used to the special treatment). Didnīt you say it wasnīt about the refs? Yeah you sure act like that.

Fidel

The big question is: will a team break the 80 point mark?

Ugh, itīs getting real ugly now. Maybe we should focus on the 70 mark first?

Mandyahl

57-56 spurs at the end of the third. nets really fell apart that quarter.

Can some one post a thread on how to layup. This is sick basketball. 57-56 after three.

Mandyahl
06-11-2003, 09:27 PM
it makes me feel better that kidd is still missing his layups in nj, much like he did in dallas. i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

Fidel
06-11-2003, 09:41 PM
Itīs a loooong way to 70...

Mandyahl
06-11-2003, 09:43 PM
have faith, fidel. they may even make it to 75. i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif

Sigh. I miss Mavs basketball. The Spurs don't really believe in fast breaks. I'm sick of low scoring.

Very gritty defense, by both teams.

Another good game for watching two teams play hard and compete hard, taking the momentum only to have it taken right back.

Great hustle by Manu. Great run-zip-dart-speed by Claxton. Interesting to watch Duncan adjust to some very questionable calls/non-calls.

Plenty to watch and enjoy between these two teams.

this game isn't nearly as fun to watch as mavs games, but it should come down to the wire. they finally hit 70 points for you, fidel!

This has been the best second half b. ball.

Mandyahl

final 77-76 nets win. i thought ginobli was gonna hit it...

Hehe I knew they had it in em!

Actually Kikki, I donīt like the style these teams play, but I think they are pretty good at it.
So the game is not a bad game but I enjoy watching high octane teams like Dallas or Sac much more. What I like about the Nets and the Spurs is that they play team ball much like the Mavs. Like you said in the other thread thatīs a welcome change from the ego driven ways that the NBA was all about not too long ago.

I didnīt see too many questionable calls though today. One on Duncan maybe, a missed travelling call on a Kidd layup and some others. All in all I think this game was called pretty even. Numbers indicate that too (the Nets are shooting alot of free throws to end the game obviously, until that it was very even. On the personal foul column too).

Aw. Manu didn't hit it...I wanted to see an OT!

So far, this was the most enjoyable game of the series to watch. The Jefferson dunk was amazing, and I am becoming a huge Kenyon Martin fan. But, these teams make me really, really miss the Mavs. A little offense would be nice. If the rest of the series can be as emotional and heated as this game was, then watching won't be too difficult.

Mandyahl
06-11-2003, 11:09 PM
i agree, raef. this game was definitely exciting to watch, although a kerr three-pointer to send it into overtime would've made it classic!

can someone explain why spur's last missed 3-pter was not a goal-tending by kidd? thanks.

what an ugly game. people are asking what is wrong with nba now, look no further than this series. it is difficult to believe people would actually enjoy watching this kind of games.

but this series has at least one value: it may, at least i hope, make david stern & co. start something to make the league put much more focus on offense and shooting skill.

It was not goaltending because he was essentially an "air-ball". It had no prospect of hitting rim. But why Kidd would take that chance is beyond me.

"It was not goaltending because he was essentially an "air-ball". It had no prospect of hitting rim. But why Kidd would take that chance is beyond me."

Instinct, probably. Man, would he be a goat if they had called it goaltending.
Maybe to disallow a putback or alley-oop. I wish some Mavs had taken that chance a couple times in the Spurs series.

I enjoyed the game. There was a lot of tough defense - blocks, steals, emotion. Not like the previous game where the low score was primarily bad offense.

but wasn't the ball falling down when kidd touched the ball? that should be a goaltending, isn't it?

Mandyahl

yeah, but the ball was not going to hit the rim, so i guess they just call it a rebound at that point when it becomes obvious it is an airball.
