We need to come out of the gates kicking butt. If we don't, we'll need to dig deep into our championship pedigree for effort and cold execution.
It's a Saturday matinee game. Pop yourself some corn and partake of a creme soda.
Tony is the man, even if it wasn't evident the other night. Which is why he needs a great bounce-back performance. Without Tony having an awesome game, the Spurs are through.
I'm assuming Carlisle is going to start Barea again. Apparently, Pop thinks so too, since he's starting Bruce Bowen. Bowen's defense vs. Barea's offense - I'm still calling this a tie.
A Haiku for comic relief. Seriously though, it's Timmy's bithday and he can dominate if he wants to.
Dirk was making Dirk shots [impossible, well defended] in game 3. He's going to do that, it's who he is. WE can't let him get easy buckets, though.
Prove us wrong, Findog, prove us wrong.
