Game 1 Utah @ San Antonio: Spurs 108, Jazz 100 (1-0)Let’s see… I don’t have to write anymore term papers, sit through lectures, or con my way to a passing grade in español anymore. I got the interminable graduation ceremony out of the way (the highlight, by far, was a speech given by this Asian gentleman; the head of our department or something, dressed like the Pope, whose accent reminded…

Game 5 San Antonio @ Phoenix: Spurs 88, Suns 85 (2-3) With all due respect to my colleague Matthew, I couldn’t disagree more about how it feels winning this game. At first, when the suspensions were announced, I admit I felt guilty about it. Hell, I even suggested that we should sit Timmy for the game just to protest against the national attack of our team’s integrity and principles. Looking…

Game recaps are not my forte, and Michael is certainly working on a brilliant recap of game 5 even as I write this. Even so, I’m compelled to write that last night I witnessed the worst 36 minutes of basketball I’ve seen all season. It started in Cleveland and continued in Phoenix. I have yet to watch a complete Eastern Conference playoff game. I’ve watched highlights and a quarter here…

Game 3 Phoenix @ San Antonio: Spurs 108, Suns 101 (1-2) Now that’s more like it. That vaguely resembled what I remember Spurs playoff games looking like in ’05. The Big Three was the Big Three again. Brent Barry was doing Brent Barry things again. Bruce Bowen was getting under people’s skins again. The Spurs are turning their opponents into soft, whiny crapweasels again. Amare had plenty of time to…

Here’s what’s been on my mind this morning: Will it take the Spurs five or six games to dispatch the Suns? Will the Warriors hold court at home and take the Jazz to seven games? Will the Pistons lose even a single game before making it to the NBA Finals? And then I came across this bit in today’s San Francisco Chronicle: Commenting on a basketball team’s hairstyle is the…
