1. This hasn't been a good weekend for underdogs
This has the makings of another 20 + point victory.

3. Really good so far. Up 37-23 three minutes into the 2nd.
Looks like a 20-point lead pretty soon.

6. No, not really. We're only up 51-42 at the half.
It should be at LEAST a 15-point lead.

9. Like home court advangage means anything to the world Champs??
Edited on Sun Apr-18-04 10:22 PM by SilasSoule
They often play a more refined, focused game on big road games. Should the Spurs end up meeting the pups in WCF, The spurs could easily take one of the first two up there. It's called called holding serve on your home court and Minnesota won't be able to do it. The Spurs are on a 12 game winning streak, and are peaking. They're getting in a zone similar to the '99 playoffs where they went someinthing like 17-2 in their playoff championship run. One thing for sure and POP let us know that in game 1, Horry is going to see some time and contribute some bigtime scoring, rebounding, toughness and experience, remember Steve Kerr's heroics last year?

19. I take exception to that statement.
I think the Timberwolves and Spurs are roughly equal in terms of overall talent.

Actually, the two teams are composed quite similarly. One superstar and a bunch of other good players that know their role.

18. Nice game. Thanks Sam!!!
We'll need a little more input from the supporting cast if we want to go deep into the playoffs. but hey, they got the first game monkey off their backs and Sam has just put the fear of 20-foot jumper into every Nugget and future opponent.
