Spurs Uglied One Out Against The Kings

Nothing bad and nothing great. Just a bunch of mediocre story lines in the game.

  • RJ was solid
  • Garrett Temple got the start and was good
  • McDyess made his jumpers and rebounded
  • Blair made layups
  • Timmy stayed awake
  • Tony got some court time
  • Manu owned the fourth

I think that pretty much sums it up.

Let's face it. The Kings aren't a good team right now and we are. We played just hard enough and got just enough plays from our stars and just enough contribution from our role players to win.

Tony

He looked like you'd expect. Ragged. He didn't have the confidence to really drive the ball to the rim and seemed content to just get up and down the court and run the offense. He turned the ball over a lot -- he had 4 of our 11. Still, it was good to see him out there running around. Pop kept his minutes down to just over 16.

Rage

Yep, he's still coming along. He made some shots early and stepped up in the fourth with some big plays. It was very nice to see. I'm starting to think he's getting it.

Tim

He played 22 minutes and went 5 of 12 from the field and didn't get to the line. He did pick up a technical and grab 10 rebounds. Heading into tomorrow night's game against the Suns, I'll take it.

Blair

He's a garbage collector. He made all six shots and grabbed 4 boards. All defensive.

McDyess

He had his jumper going early and ended with 12 points on 6 of 8 shooting. He also led us with 11 boards and he picked up 3 assists.

Garrett Temple

He got his first NBA start and he was really good. 15 points, 4 assists, and 3 rebounds with only 1 turnover. He's a long guard who looks like he can play some defense. If anybody caught his post-game interview with Bill Land and PJ Carlesimo, then you know why the Spurs like him. He is a Spur through and through.

Manu

The Man With No Swagger just makes big plays. 11 fourth quarter points. Big defensive plays. He's just the man.
