hope this is a great game, it has all the makings to be a big game 7 if the spurs can get their act together on the road and the hornets keep up their home court high level of play....

The Spurs are gonna come out executing so the Hornets had better come out sharp or else I feel like Tyson is gonna be in early foul trouble. Also, I'd like to see a lot more picks by the Hornets this game. Iso West is great sometimes when Paul is not on the floor but I liked how Tyson set a pick for West and then West lobbed for Tyson. If they can get some point guard play out of guys like West, Peja, maybe Mo Peterson, it'll help them out greatly.

I'll be rooting for the Hornets.

I'm just glad to be able to watch the game with no pressure. As a laker fan I hope Spurs win because, I want us to dethrone the Spurs.

Laker fans who would you rather face in the WCF? Easier match-up? I think the Spurs might be a tougher match-up for you guys,but I really want the Hornets to win.

I heard Pop is going to start Manu and Oberto. What I'd like to see Scott do is start Wright instead of Peja. For one, Wright is more athletic and quicker than Peja, and I think he can bother Manu more. Also, that would provide a scoring punch in Peja off the bench, something they desperately need.

Doesn't matter if Peja comes of the bench. As long as he has Bruce on him, he won't even get into double digits.

that's a good idea but scott is notrious for not making changes... that's the one gripe about him is his lack of flexability and making adjustments

Please Tyson Chandler, no unnecessary early fouls tonight!

Hopefully the refs will not call him for fouls that aren't there either.

Unhappy its game 7 but I'm at work today

Great match up between a dynastic team nearing the end of its reign and an upstart on the cusp of greatness.

Here's how it will break down:
At the backcourt, how the Spurs defend Chris Paul will be crucial: if they force him to become a scorer, i.e., play him like they guarded Nash, a more dangerous passer, shut off his passing options, Paul will score 30 plus but fail to crack double digits in assists. Paul is not a great straight up defender, so Parker must continue to run and run and run, be a fast break unto himself. If Ginobili's jumper is on, he becomes truly indefensible - can bury the three, fake it and go to the cup or pull up for the mid range j in the paint. If he is off, the Hornets have a better chance to win. Peterson won't be much of a factor today. Finley can threaten from outside, but his tank seems empty too.

Frontcourt: it comes down to how either team defends West or Duncan. Hornets must continue to double Duncan, but only once he makes the first move towards the hoop. Otherwise his passing will dissect them into pieces, assuming their long range game is on. Provided West's back is back to optimal levels, the Spurs cannot afford guard him with anyone other than Duncan himself. His length and all nba defense know-how will keep West under control. Shotblocker extraordinaire Chandler may be able to produce more than either Oberto or Thomas, but his lingering foot injury may not allow that to happen. Bowen will continue to neutralize Stojakovic's deadly perimeter game, because he is the best follow and lock defender in the league. So look for the hornets to try and have Peja take Bowen off the dribble, instead of spotting up for jumpers that never come.

It looks like the Spurs' experience will keep the game close to steal it in the end, but if they use the incorrect strategy, look for a blowout win from the Hornets.

I'd be shocked if Hornets win. I mean I really want them to win, but with West's injury, what are the chances he's gonna have a stellar game? And they'll need a stellar performance from him to win the game. Chandler's not gonna score much, we know that, Paul is gonna make his 30, but without points they're doomed. I say this game is all on West's back, literally and figuratively :)

Prediction: Spurs gonna win in a close match.
