The novelty act that is "Linsanity" helped the Charlotte Hornets come back from a 23 point deficit last night, to give the Spurs their 11th loss this season. Ok, ok...calling Lin a novelty act is a bit disrespectful; especially since he has been a reliable back up point guard for the Hornets. Saying that San Antonio lost at the hands of Lin though -- that is a painful pill to swallow.
According to nyloncalculus.com, "The Spurs' average offensive possession in this game was 18.0 seconds, that's nearly two seconds longer than any other offense has averaged this season and more than two-and-a-half seconds longer than any defense typically forces."
Never realized this rivalry had so much depth to it. FYI, Kevin Garnett also posted a picture of him and Paul Pierce when they were 15 years old, at their high school's prom.
I smell a 30 For 30 in the near future, for G-Pop and the Spurs from San Antonio.
Never before have I seen Spur's fans so excited over a regular season win. Before I decided to post this article, I thought to myself, "Diego... they are probably tired of reading about the Spurs beating the Warriors. It happened on Saturday, let it go." With all that being said, this is another great article that shows just how we pulled out that incredible victory on Saturday night.
