I’m watching San Antonio play the Sacramento Kings. Its the Spurs third game in three nights, all on the road and they are two minutes away from a sweep, including a win over The Kobe-less Lakers. They are deep into their bench, and leading by 24. I thought they would have big trouble tonight, because Tim Duncan is sitting this one out and you knew Popovich would limit minutes for Ginobili and Parker. Instead, the Spurs #4-#12 players are killing the Kings.
Final: San Antonio 127, Sacramento 102.
Normally, I’d say watch out for San Antonio. I refuse to do so, because my predictions are always wrong. However, the Spurs bench looks better than the Kings starters. Matchups are always the big deal in the playoffs in any sport, but the Spurs look to be a tough out for anyone at the moment. They have so many role players who know what they’re doing, they’re going to be difficult to stop.
