Default Game 7 for all the Marbles! Spurs vs Hornets



Spurs get break, prepare for Game 7

Wire Reports
Saturday, May 17, 2008



SAN ANTONIO — The last thing the New Orleans Hornets wanted was to give the defending champions the whole weekend off before Game 7.

"You're playing with fire," coach Byron Scott said before the San Antonio Spurs beat the Hornets 99-80 Thursday night. Too late now. It's back to New Orleans for a winner-take-all matchup Monday night.

While the aging Spurs can certainly use the time off, the break might also help the banged-up Hornets.

New Orleans forward David West aggravated a back injury when the Spurs' Robert Horry set a hard, blindside screen early in the fourth quarter.

West collapsed to the floor, face down, grabbing his back with his left arm. He hobbled off the court, helped along by people on either side, and did not return. Horry was called for an offensive foul.

Game 6 was essentially out of reach for the Hornets at that point. But whether West can recuperate by Monday may be a big factor in deciding which team advances to the Western Conference finals.

Great start, 9 point lead. Paul missed 3 FT's so that hurt them, but Gino has been shooting well. I want to see some of the high energy guys get some burn in the 3rd, maybe Udoka and Big O, if they can both contribute and work hard, get us those second chancers or that tipped pass, it will help. I also like Udo's shooting ability, we should try and get him the ball on the extra pass. We can't go into long droughts, we need to find some spark right away. If we can get it to 13-14 early then that will really help us if we do go into another drought. Also, get the ball to Timmeh very close to the basket and get TP9 some pick & roll layups. Doubt all that good stuff will happen for us, but if we stick to the basics and feed off our stars, and hopefully our role players step up, we might see our season extend for at least another series.
