48 Minutes of Hell brings us El Conclusion, grading out each Spurs player by Trevor Zickgraf. He also put together What's the Story, a collection of tweets concerning Game 1. Just imagine what the grades would look like if they didn't have 22 turnovers.

Also from 48MoH, a Game 1 recap from Andrew McNeill, and The Margin by Matthew Tynan, which includes this little ditty: "The Duncan-Boris-Leonard-Manu-Parker lineup played eight minutes in Game 1, most of any of the Spurs’ five-man units. When those five were on the floor at once, San Antonio boasted a 190.4 offensive-efficiency rating and a 57.1 defensive rating. Which is good." Just incredible.

James Herbert from CBS Sports has input from an NBPA exec on the a/c conditions for the game, as well as a little recap of his own.

CBS also has Zach Harper's Court Vision and Matt Moore's always good write-up.
