PtR Quick Cap: Rockets blow up the Spurs, 116-109

Déjà vu is a French phrase meaning "already seen", and it refers to the experience of feeling sure that one has witnessed or experienced a new situation previously.

So we just finished playing the Jazz, oops, I meant the Rockets. Same thing. Once again, the Spurs give up a lead and get progressively worse over the course of the game, showing none of the effort or defensive tenacity the team had in the past. Quite the opposite of our opponents.

Here's the boxscore, although I'm not sure why anyone would want to look at it, since the final score is not indicative of the game.

The Spurs started off well, building up a 21-9 lead with 5 minutes left in the 1st quarter, but it was all downhill from there. The same problems that the team has been battling all season long reared their ugly heads yet again. It was so bad, that I had to coin a new term - EGC. Tim C., in his infinite wisdom, immediately understood it to mean:





This is getting ridiculous; therefore, I'm going to put as much effort into this Quick Cap as the Spurs have been exhibiting lately - NONE! It will consist entirely of comments from the Game Thread, from the other PtRers masochistic enough to watch.

I’ll be back, I think I left the car running in the garage. - SinCitySpur

I hate that we suck at defense. - Daniel_B

i’m signing off and going to watch the game alone weaping in my room. Maybe this will change the mojo for us. - SCOOTERFL3

Hey it’s cool we’ll make up for our lousy defense with great offense! I man we’re shooting 55%! ..oh right, that’s from the foul line. :^/ - M3D1T8R

damn, we should just kill ourselves - TDzilla!

Hey, I have a great idea… let’s give up easy shots, then constantly turn the ball over on the other end. - Tim C.

I miss winning. Remember winning? - Queness

sweet fsm, we look as smooth and coordinated on offense as a blind drunk rabbit with no legs - sleep research facility

Typical Spurs – Bonner is the best defender on the team. Everything is normal, nothing to see here, move along now. - swgeek

And the piece de resistance:

tonight when any body ask for "just a shot" im going to make one based on my feelings, it will be jager, because the spurs make my heart black, patron silver, because god dammit, i still love t he spurs, and bacardi 151, which i will set on fire, like my hopes and dreams for this season - jakob_taylor

Heck, I don't know why I'm even bothering with a Quick Cap, since srf already did it for me.

And now I'm sure everyone is waiting for the Stars of the Game. I almost gave one to Timmeh for his effort in the 4th quarter, especially when he had 2-3 offensive rebounds on the same possession while getting hacked under the basket, but no. After this last week of craptacular play, no one deserves a star. And because we've now lost two in a row, there's officially No Fish For You!
