The Toros opened the playoffs tonight with a gritty 98-96 win on the road at Dakota. Or is that in Dakota? Whatever.
I tuned in for the last three minutes, they are streaming the games on the D-League site, and got to see a great ending.
Alonzo Gee hit a really tough baseline jumper to give the Toros a 93-87 lead. The Wiz immediately drained a tough 3 to cut the lead in half. A couple turnovers and layups later the Wiz lead 96-95 with 14 seconds left. The Toros gave the ball to CJ and he hit a pull-up jumper from the left elbow to win it for the Toros.
Our youthful Spurs:
CJ: 28 points and 10 assists. Game winning jumper. 4-9 from 3-point.
Gee: 29 points and 9 rebounds on 12-22 shooting.
Game 2 is in Austin on Saturday.
