San Antonio Spurs vs Phoenix Suns

U.S. Airways Center
Feb. 24th, 7:00 PM Spurs Time

So begins a two day stand against the Phoenix Suns. To be frightfully honest there is not a lot to say about the Suns this season. In one sentence: they are a lottery bound team that can occasionally be brilliant. So on that note instead of the usual punditry of a game preview let's play a drinking game. (Now I am not encouraging nor even suggesting that you should drink during this game. Some of you might be medical professionals on call, some of you might be watching the game while monitoring a nuclear reactor. (by the way: not a good idea) So if your drink of choice happens to be cranberry juice then all is good. However if you do drink alcohol during this game I would suggest that you not drink something terribly strong like Everclear. Save that kind of stuff for the playoffs.)

Each time an announcer talks about the Morris Twins = Take an inevitable sip.

Each time an announcer talks about the 2013 draft= Take a long thoughtful swig.

Each time Goran Dragic notches an assist= Take an angry sip.

Each time Jared Dudley makes a 3 point shot= Take a furious swig.

Each time Tiago Splitter makes a 3 point shot= Finish the friggen bottle.

Each time Luis Scola makes a shot= Take an enraged sip.

Each time Luis Scola fouls out= Take a humorous shot.

Each time an announcer utters the phrase "transition period"= Take an inevitable sip.

Each time Tim Duncan does something amazing= Don't drink anything, just clap at his awesomeness

Each time Nando De Colo does something amazing = Tip a glass to PATFO.

Each time Matt Bonner dunks= Finish the bottle, then walk (please walk) to the local store and buy another bottle and finish it in the checkout line.

Each time an announcer talks about Michael Beasley's hair= Take another inevitable sip.

Each time the Spurs win the game= High five your imaginary friend.

Each time the Suns win the game= High five a cactus.

Game Prediction: Spurs by 11.

As always Tony must dominate Fisher, and NBA league pass is recommended for those who are willing to pony up the cash. Almost every Spurs game will be broadcast there, which is especially helpful for those of us who aren't in the San Antonio area. Please don't post links to illegal game feeds in the game thread. Links to illegal feeds are not permitted on SBNation, but you can probably find them out there on the internets if you're resourceful and desperate.
