Re: GT: Clippers Hosting Spurs 1/06
Spurs come out victors like expected by a final tally of 88-82. If you would have told me before the game that the Clippers would be in the game until the end, let alone have the lead in the fourth quarter, I would have said no way. But they did it and if we can keep this squad together, teamed up with a lotto pick and Elton, could end up being really dangerous.
Zane had yet another solid game, scoring 20, grabbing 14, dishing 3, swatting 3 and turning it over just once on 7-11 shooting from the field[6-8 ft]
Thornton was solid, dropping 17 and grabbing 8 boards, although it took him 19 shots to get it. I like the fact that he doesn't hang his head low like some rookies would, instead, he goes right back and tries to get another score.
Powell was solid in 13:34 minutes of action. He scored 4 points, grabbed 6 boards, dished two dimes and never turned it over. Seems to me that he's finally getting used to the team and getting comfortable.
Spurs had three times more free throw attempts as well.
