San Antonio – Sacramento

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.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
