Spurs Win With Balanced Attack
Game 36 vs. Portland: Spurs 98, Blazers 84
Record: 25-11 Last 10: 5-5
The “winning ways at home” headline will likely get the most traction in tomorrow’s papers, but I’ll go with the “balanced attack” headline as my favorite. It was an extremely balanced attack. Minutes were shared pretty evenly by nine Spurs: Bowen (36), Duncan (33), Bonner (27!?), Barry (25), Ginobili and Udrih (23), Oberto (22), Parker (21) and Finley (19). Oddly enough, Robert Horry didn’t play at all after scoring 18 against the Grizzlies Sunday night. Maybe Pop is saving him for tomorrow’s game at Denver?
Spurs scoring was nearly as balanced as their minutes, with five players in double figures: Duncan (16), Ginobili and Parker (14), Barry (13) and Bowen (12). Finley, Bonner and Udrih chipped in with 9, 8 and 8 respectively.
Just imagine, the Spurs could have had eight players in double figures. That would have been sweet. I wonder, when was the last time the Spurs were that balanced? Good, but not quite. Ah, I should have known it would be against them.
