10 Reasons To Believe
For the record, I believe that the Spurs will win tonight. I agree with Michael that the Spurs are “too good to lose to these guys in six.” As for a game seven in New Orleans, I’m not so sure… I’d rather that the Spurs not be in this position, but it is what it is.
Here are 10 reasons to believe that the Spurs will win tonight:
#10. The Spurs are undefeated at home in the playoffs, and have won 11 consecutive playoff games at the AT&T Center dating back to last year.
#9. The home team is 19-1 in the Conference Semifinals.
#8. The last time the Hornets beat the Spurs in San Antonio was January 26. The Big Three combined for just 45 points while David West scored 32. Sound familiar? It won’t happen again.
#7. Odds makers favor the Spurs by 7.
#6. Tyson Chandler was injured in game five. Chandler bruised his left foot after landing awkwardly in the fourth quarter. Yesterday, “Chandler watched from the sideline at the Arena while his teammates practiced.” His playing time should be limited, which means more minutes for Hilton Armstrong and Melvin Ely.
#5. David West’s back stiffened in game five, so don’t expect him to have another 30+ point performance.
#4. The Spurs shot poorly in game five – just 37.7 percent.
#3. Fans in San Antonio won’t be holding up a life-sized poster of Eva Longoria in Hornets blue and gold.
#2. Even Hornets fans think this series will go to seven games.
#1. Joey Crawford won’t be working tonight’s game.
