Spurs Clobber Kings in Close One 115-113

The Spurs played some really good defense for the first 22:20 of the second half to grab a win in Sacramento. They played terrible defense in the first half and abysmal defense for the last 1:40. Really, the Kings scored 19 points in the last 1:39 on 8 for 8 shooting including 3 3-pointers.

But, a win is a win on the road.

Your 3 stars:

1 - George Hill: 23 points, 9 assists, 2 steals, and 1 block in almost 42 minutes. All were team highs.

2 - DeJuan Blair: Tore it up in the first half with 7-7 shooting. Finished with 20 points on 9-11 shooting (missed his last two shots). The dude is magical.

3 - Tim Duncan: 22 and 13. And only played 29 minutes thanks to some early foul trouble.

*Honorary 4th star - Manu Ginobili: Also had 20 points with 6 assists.

Well, it is a win, but I am far from satisfied. Our defense just isn't right.

News of the night was the opening from the Kings announcers. They said a trade was imminent for the Spurs. So imminent that it might affect Pop's rotations. He went on to say that the trade was for a small forward and a backup point guard. I have find no corroboration. Keep your ears peeled.
