Quick Cap: Spurs bounce back with win over Magic,109-91

New, comments

Even without Tony Parker, the Spurs avoided their first losing streak of the season with a victory in Orlando tonight. Tim Duncan looked good, and the second unit was too much for the Magic squad. The Good Guys stay on top of the West with a 14-2 record.

The Foreign Legion was at it again tonight. Outscoring the Magic's bench 52-32. Manu Ginobili had a stretch toward the end of the third where he scored seven straight points for the Spurs, tossed the lob on an ultra rare ALLEY-OOP, then stole the ball and made a nice outlet to Mills, who unfortunately could not connect from deep. Marco Belinelli was outstanding tonight, and finished with 19-points on a night he was a perfect 4-for-4 from downtown. He seems to have really found a home in San Antonio.

This came out before the game:

Well, he still hasn't. Tim went 8-for-13 from the field to finish with 19 and 9 in just over 23 minutes of work.That's good work from the GOAT PUFF, and by my math puts his last 10 games at 10.5 ppg.

The Spurs continue to roll over lesser teams, but tomorrow night's SEGABABA at home vs. Houston should be a tougher test.
