Spurs Draw First Blood

When they win, its experience. When they loose, they are getting old.

No matter how you shake it, the Spurs showed they are capable of keeping up with the run and gun offense of the Suns.

What I can't figure out, is why everyone was so quick to jump on the Suns bandwagon this year. Hasn't anyone else watched the Suns in the playoffs the last several seasons?

When ever someone argues that the Suns are going to win the Championship I always tell them what I have been told my entire life. Offense wins games, defense wins championships. Offense will come and go night to night. One night you may shoot the lights out, the next, you can't it the broadside of the barn. Defense can be there every night.

Bottom line the Spurs will eat the Suns lunch.

Well, if it looks like a duck and walks like a duck, it's a duck. The Spurs are the most consistent team in the NBA this century. Every year they run out there with a realistic chance of winning the championship. This year is no different.

What's suprising to me is that the Spurs were able to hold out without much help from Manu Ginobli. Buy hey, when Parker runs off a 30 point game to go along with 8 assists, the Spurs are probably going to win with or without Manu.

With the departure of Dallas, the Spurs could not have asked for a better path to the finals.
