Stating the obvious -Teams like San Antonio excel at exposing mistakes. The classic counterpuncher. The real oldies on this site may have seen Surgar Ray Robinson (Sugar Ray Leonard was similiar but way too much flash), that is the Spurs style. WIth a team lacking the fundamentals and mechanics of an offense and a defense, the contest got ugly quickly.

 

 Where to start? Tony Parker filleted the Kings as he does most all teams. I look at Tyreke Evans and see a lot ot similarities on the offensive end. The best plays of Tyreke last night were when Duncan went out and Tyreke went inside to drive and dish. Not as elegantly as Parker, but effective nonetheless.
I agree with the general sentiment that Spencer got his numbers in garbage time - which started at the second half.
I wil be shocked if Theo Ratliff sees any playing time or stays on that team after February (I don't know his contract). He is just plain awful and the anti-thesis of the typical Spurs player. He gambles on defense trying to block every shot, he is slow to rebound and is no threat on the offensive end. A kind of Theo-beet if you will...

Otherwise it was the usual suspects: KMart was the reason the score was close,JT showed a ton of effort, as did Noce, most everyone else looked young and inexperienced.

Oh, and the play of the game: not Manu and the bat, it was Tyreke's ankle roll. Your starting PG for the sold out home opener and the next XX games: Beno Udrih. This will be an interesting test of Paul Westphal's patience.

TZ we miss you.
