Popovich is a complete idiot.  Why the heck is he giving the Suns free points when they haven't been able to buy a basket the whole quarter?
they were up by 9 by the end of 3Q.  such a controversial subject but i thought it was a great call by pops.  you don't allow  the suns to get into  any rhythm coming into the 4Q--slow down the game even more and turn it into lower scoring game which favors the spurs.

Yet he noticed he was making a mistake in doing so because Shaq was making them.  The Suns were in no rhythm during the quarter, they should've kept playing tough defense.  If they go on a roll, then sure you can give the Hack-a-Shaq a try, but not when the Suns can't buy a basket.

Man ... the Suns can't buy a hoop. Wish they had kept up the momentum from the first quarter ... they usually surge again in the fourth, but it's looking doubtful. Sure wish they could have pulled this one out, but it's pretty obvious they're over-matched, (unless playing their absolute best).

I hate the Suns, and now even more with Shaq.

Yup ... pretty strange. Man ... that was the biggest acting job I've seen all year by Ginobili. The Spurs are the biggest whiners in the NBA ... and the biggest floppers. Too bad, 'cuz they have enough talent to win without the drama.

Yup ... they did their flopping, too ... though the Spurs overall are the kings in that department, (and complaining, and dirty play ... though that's mostly reserved for Bowen). I disagree that it's something you have to do if you want to win, however ... I truly believe that, while every team does it to a certain extent, a truly excellent team could still win by relying on good, clean play, and without resorting to such tactics.

Cassell will!!!

Second game in a row that I've thought Steve Nash has been the 6th best player on the court

I actually snagged two 12$ seats for tomorrow's game on Celtics.com today.  I couldn't believe it.

Way to go Dan!  you didn't get any 1st dibs being a STH?

I already had my 4 regular seats.  The extra two went to my wife and her friend.
