Well playboy…persistence and determination better known as the Indiana Pacers almost beat the defendin’ NBA Champions at the crib on Wednesday night. The boyz in blue and gold had the Spurs on the ropes but just couldn’t finish them off as the Spurs stumbled out of the joint with a 106-100 win.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever 1st! The Pacers are like the young G in the hood comin’ up that all of the O.G.’s are givin’ tall respect to. Even though they’ve got crazy cats sittin’ on the sideline in street clothes, George Hill (bruised left knee), David West (sprained right ankle), C.J. Watson (bruised right foot), and Roy Hibbert (sprained left ankle) not to mention Paul George (fractured right leg), these boyz are still jumpin’ up in cat’s collars every night.
They carjacked the Mavs on Monday night and then rolled down to San Antonio lookin’ for trouble. Unfortunately, boyz ain’t playin’ about the Alamo and they had their hands full. On some real talk, boyz didn’t give them an unlocked car in the projects with a computer sittin’ on the front seat with a sign on it that says, “Steal me dawg!” chance of survivin’ down there.
However, the Pacers decided to pull up in the whip that ole Bill Bradley was hollerin’ about earlier. In the hood they called it “Ole Betsey” but in world of success they call it persistence. The Mash Unit made boyz in the Circle City proud even in a loss bruh! Rodney Stuckey jumped out of the ride and hit ‘em with 22 points and Big Momma’s sweet potato pie. Luis Scola climbed out of the passenger side joint with 13 and somethin’ that looked like turkey and dressin’ but we’re not sure because he kept callin’ it somethin’ else. Solomon Hill threw out cool 10 and some collard greens while Chris Copeland stopped by “L” and grabbed a 12 pack just to get the party started.
Unfortunately, even with all of that effort, persistence and the crib smellin’ good the Spurs weren’t about let these Indiana boyz show up and take over the joint. The Pacers had them on the ropes with Pop out on medical leave but they finally woke up to go on a16-2 run in the fourth quarter led by Manu Ginobili’s 28 points and somethin’ that he kept callin’ turkey and dressin’ too. Ole boy scored 21 of his 28 all in the second half to keep the Pacers honest.
I know that there’s no such thing as a good loss but when you’ve got the entire hood on the sick and shut-in list with the chicken pox and measles then you’ve got to understand that boyz are gonna lose some games bruh. Think about it pimpin’, you’ve got duns that didn’t even have names prior to a month ago startin’ so you gotta be happy that these cats are even competin’ EVERY night. When boyz get healthy this team is gonna be a beast to deal with because the bench is ridiculous at this point. Stop me when I start lyin’!
Holla At Ya Boy!
