Everybody and their baby’s momma have been sleepin’ on the San Antonio Spurs this season. They’re flyin’ so far under the radar screen that Bankers Life Fieldhouse was “big name team” empty. The second best team in the league shows up and duns around this piece treat them like the darn Milwaukee Bucks. Uhhh…let me take that back. Why? Because the joint was packed to see them play on Saturday night. Gregg Poppovich and Co. were comin’ end on the back end of a back to back after losin’ to the dull Knicks on Sunday night. So you already know that they weren’t goin’ down without a fight as they walked out of the joint with a 110-106 win.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! The Pacers stood out in the middle of the street and went toe to toe with these boyz for four quarters. There were 14 lead changes and 12 ties. The Pacers shot the ball well enough to win the game shootin’ darn near 49 percent from the field and 45 percent from behind the arc. They were just as impressive movin’ the ball with 21 assists. However, when they stepped to the free throw line they came down with a bad case of glaucoma shootin’ only 70 percent goin’ 21 of 30 bruh.
I’ll tell you what playboy, it was sure a lot of fun bein’ able to watch Kawhi and PG13 go at each other all night though. The dun that just won’t give up the cornrows was as smooth as silk droppin’ off 32 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists. That was his 84th straight double digit game which is the longest by a San Antonio player since Tim Duncan’s 91 straight ended back in 2003. Paul George on the other end knocked on Big Momma’s door with 27 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists.
Even Gregg Poppovich had to enjoy the front row seat, “At times, you had to slap yourself watching those guys guard each other and do what they do out there because they are so much fun to watch.”
The two small forwards didn’t show up alone bruh. Their entire crews jumped out of the rides to get it in. Danny Green, Tony Parker and David Lee all had 12 on a boy’z liquor as Dewayne Dedmon came through with a six pack and 12 rebounds.
The Pacers weren’t thinkin’ about leavin’ PG hangin’ so they came out of the ride with some old school Stacy Adams knobs on. Myles Turner finished with 22 points and 6 rebounds, Jeff Teague put up 15 points, 5 assists and 5 rebounds and Kevin Seraphin pulled 12 out of his pocket. Monta Ellis came out of the bushes with 10 points and two monster jams to keep the crowd engaged.
However, at the end of the day you can’t get glaucoma at the foul line and expect to beat the most disciplined team in the NBA with the best coach. Not gonna happen playboy. If you were playin’ the dull Knicks, Pelicans, Nets or the darn Lakers you could have shot free throws with your feet but not against ole Pop! Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
2) Around this piece: Hood for sayin’ ” in this area” or “where we’re from.”
3) Come out of the bushes: verb phrase – to come off of the bench
