The Spurs were winning by a respectable six points, 19 to 13, with 2:47 remaining in the first quarter. I walked away from the television and when I returned, two game-time minutes had passed and the Spurs were up 17, 31-13. It's a fairly unbelievable feat and one that the Spurs have pulled off two nights in a row! Yesterday against the Knicks, the Spurs built a 26-9 lead over the first six minutes of the game. Apparently, your San Antonio Spurs are pretty, pretty, pretty good -- as Larry David would say.

Unlike the Knicks the day before, the Sixers actually competed tonight; they were just outclassed by a veteran Spurs team that executed to near perfection on both ends of the floor. The Spurs took a 57-38 lead into halftime and quickly built it to 29 points in the third. Although the Sixers never gave up, it was essentially over early in the third. And, it should be noted, the Spurs rested the venerable Tim Duncan tonight. No matter, blow out.

And so, your Spurs are now 7-1 and lead the Western Conference. The 76ers fell to 4-4, but they reside in the East which means they are now fifth over there. The East vs. West is ridiculous, but that's a story for another day.

Next up, the Spurs will play the Washington Wizards this Wednesday. More teams from the East, please.
