San Antonio Spurs vs Houston Rockets - The Game Thread

New, comments

It's a matinee game against the Rockets. A loss throws us right into the mix for the division title with the Rockets and Hornets. A win gives us some good breathing room.

Breakdown

  • Point Guard - Brooks had zero assists in the last matchup and shot 7-18 in a good game for him. Hopefully, Tony can overcome his unclutch performance from the other night.
  • Off Guard - I'd like to give Roger the edge, but he's been a bit off lately.
  • Center - Speaking of a bit off lately, Tim ain't right. He's was getting abused by Perkins the other night.
  • Power Forward - BonBon is a bit off too. I'm sensing a trend.
  • Small Forward - FinDog has been playing fairly well recently. I'm hoping he goes 5-10 and RonRon goes 5-20. Both are likely to happen.
  • Bench - I'll be wearing my George Hill jersey.
  • Coach - I just hope it is close late, then Pop will coach circles around Adelman.
  • Intangibles - I think Manu will play and that will be a big boost for us and the crowd.
  • Mojo - Manu mojo.
  • Winner - Spurs in the clutch. Again.

Keys To The Game

  • Limiting Ball Movement - If the Rockets have to score by playing one-on-one or pick-and-roll, then they are in trouble.
  • Tim - Will Tim be able to make Yao work OR dominate Scola? He hasn't looked spry lately, so I'm suspicious.
  • Free Throw Shooting - I'm hurt.
