Talking Suns-Spurs Preview- Game #1

Quote:
Suns-Spurs Preview
Wire Reports - Comtex AP
Wednesday, October 29, 2008



The days of seven seconds and shoot have set on the Phoenix Suns.

But after last season's first-round playoff exit to Wednesday night's season-opening opponent - the San Antonio Spurs - a change in philosophy might be the best thing for them.

While the Suns adjust to Porter's coaching style, the San Antonio Spurs will stick with what's worked under Gregg Popovich. Despite last season's Western Conference finals loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, the Spurs have the league's longest playoff streak at 11 years, winning titles in 1999, 2003, 2005 and 2007.

``We have a proven system. We have a proven bunch of guys,'' said Tim Duncan, who begins his 12th season. ``And we like our chances.''

Those chances were hurt when Manu Ginobili, an All-NBA third team selection, had surgery on his left ankle in September and could be sidelined until December.

``Isn't Tony (Parker) still like 19?'' Duncan joked. ``We'll be all right. We're still old. We'll stay old.''

San Antonio defeated the Suns in five games in their first-round playoff series last season after eliminating Phoenix in six games in the 2007 Western Conference semifinals. Phoenix has won its past two regular-season games in San Antonio after losing 12 of the previous 13.

We meet again. >:) Nothing like a good old Suns vs Spurs game. Although it doesn't quite feel the same without D'Antoni or the matrix.

Good luck for the game, I hope it's a good one. Most importantly, I hope no one gets injured after seeing all the preseason injuries (not to mention Oden going down in his first game.)
