Toros Claim Game One Against Wizards

The Toros opened the playoffs tonight with a gritty 98-96 win on the road at Dakota. Or is that in Dakota? Whatever.

I tuned in for the last three minutes, they are streaming the games on the D-League site, and got to see a great ending.

Alonzo Gee hit a really tough baseline jumper to give the Toros a 93-87 lead. The Wiz immediately drained a tough 3 to cut the lead in half. A couple turnovers and layups later the Wiz lead 96-95 with 14 seconds left. The Toros gave the ball to CJ and he hit a pull-up jumper from the left elbow to win it for the Toros.

Our youthful Spurs:

CJ: 28 points and 10 assists. Game winning jumper. 4-9 from 3-point.

Gee: 29 points and 9 rebounds on 12-22 shooting.

Game 2 is in Austin on Saturday.
