Final Score: Spurs bomb Nets, 113-92

Yeah, Tony made that. - Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Spurs use rebounding, torrid shooting to bury the Nets early, cruise to easy win.

As far as I could tell, there were no obscene gestures to be seen at the AT&T center tonight, unless, of course, you count the brand of basketball that the Brooklyn brass has provided to the league so far this season.  All the talent that rubles can buy has failed to produce results on the court and, despite Nets' owner Mikhail Prokhorov's prediction of an NBA title within five years, Macy's looks to have its monopoly on Big Apple parades secure for the foreseeable future.

Tony Parker shook off the recent muckraking to dominate the Nets in the paint, drawing fouls early and often, going 9-of-9 from the stripe and finishing with 18 points and 6 assists in limited minutes.  Tony wasn't the only Spur dominating the paint, as the rest of his teammates routinely out-rebounded a Nets team playing without two key big men in All-Star Brook Lopez and reserve Andray Blatche.

The Spurs capitalized on Brooklyn's miscues all night to take an early lead behind excellent three-point shooting and superior rebounding. Up 30 points after three quarters, Pop (who rarely found the need to leave his seat during this game) unleashed the bench to close out the win.

Happy New Year, Pounders!  Be safe out there. Here's to not having to wait a whole 'nother year to make champagne toasts after a Spurs victory!
