KINGS/SPURS GAME 4: Game Thread

A couple things:

  1. The hoops world is positively buzzing about Kevin Martin, and it couldn't have happened to a more deserving guy. Go Speedracer, go Speedracer, go Speedracer gooooo!
  2. SR.com reader and commenter kingme has found a glorious gif file detailing The Steal and The Bounce. Glorious, I say! Especially moving is the high-shot of the ARCO crowd bursting with energy.
  3. Pete Carril is my kinda guy:
The Kings assistant coach said he occasionally likes to hum the Eagles' tune "Desperado," and entering Game 3, how fitting that those words would leave his lips.

"Desperado, why don't you come to your senses? You been out ridin' fences for so long now ... "

Carril said he kept his voice sharp with years of singing at weddings, for friends or family. And never sober.

  1. Craig Kwasniewski at The Association has a photo essay of sorts on The Bounce. Very awesome.
  2. This series could be tied after today. Holy crap.
  3. The Spurs are four-point favorites. We must protect this house!
  4. As of right now, tickets in the far reaches of section 219 can be had for $77 a piece. Not bad...
  5. Game time is on time!
There is PLENTY of basketball before Kings-Spurs IV. But not much that I'll be thinking about!

LET'S GO KINGS!
