We are half a game away from the #8 spot and we've won 6 straight... Hell, why not make it 7 straight against Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and the rest of the Spurs on their own home court?
If we make it happen tonight you can bet the bandwagon is going to start filling up fast
The enemy's game thread --> Pounding the Rock
Well it is doable if we come out playing. They beat us by 2 points last time with Ginobli in the lineup. Tonight they want have ginobli and we are a totally different team than the one they played against last time.
If we can control the paint at the same time stopping the three's we will walk away with the win.
One of the toughest buildings to play in on the road, so they have the advantage. Duncan will get his and Parker if he is on his game will get his, so then we just need to contain the perimeter game and keep a man on them like stink on shit.
How sweet would it be to come away from SAN AN with a W and 7 in a Row, Hottest Team in the EAST would be an understatement.
The only thing that will piss me off is even though we would beat the Spurs we would still get " the bobcats of all teams beat the spurs" , " The spurs beat themselves tonight against the lowly bobcats". Shit irks me.
Bobcats are the underdogs, i love it, but a little credit where credit is do would be nice. But I will settle for a 1st round against Boston, and Miami upsetting Cavs in the Second and we meet the Heat in the Finals and crush them
My dream scenario! We can beat anyone I feel in a best of 7 but the Cavs.
One more thing... The spurs want have Ginobli and it seems like Pop isnt going to put Gooden on the floor yet til he gets in some practice. If that is the case we can about chalk up the W now.

With the Spurs, they say if all 3 of the Big 3 are on, they win. If 2 of the 3, you have a chance. If only 1 of the 3, they are very beatable.
Without Ginobli, then to me the key is Parker. Ray is the key tonight. We have others who can dish out assists very well, such as Crash, Bell and Diaw. I would want Ray to put the greatest amount of focus on his Defense tonight. If he goes all out on Defense to shut down Parker, we win.
I agree fully. parker is fast and loves the lane. If we can shut him out, and they have no Ginobli and now apparently Gooden want play, then we just let Timmy D work against Okafor and make sure we shut down the perimeter shooters. I know I have said that before ,lol, but the Spurs if they get hot beyond the arch then they can put a whooping on our ass quick, then we try to play catch up shooting bad shot after bad shot.
we got diop for the first time vs the spurs I think between diop and oak we have a chance to get the best of the 5 matchup same with felton and dj at the 1.
Whew!!!....2nite is a big game. Parker is basically unstoppable. He's just to quick and he's worked hard on that outside jumper. Duncan to me is a big cry baby. If Okafor & Diop play good man up defense i think we can match up well in the post. I agree Felton on Parker is the key match up of the game. Plus, the bench has to give this team some production tonight. Is the new guy able to play tonight? I'd actually accept Sean May's fat ass playing tonight. The more big bodies the better.
