NBA - Scola's High & Walter's Debut

San Antonio Spurs 73 Toronto Raptors 83

Spurs suffered their second loss at home and were very much struggling with their shots (32% from the field) without super sub Manu GINOBILI.

Though there would have been a mouth watering clash between Fabricio OBERTO and Carlos DELFINO, neither had a great game so to speak.

OBERTO had no points just 3 rebounds & 1 block shot. DELFINO finished off with 8 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals & 1 block shot.

Detroit Pistons 114 Indiana Pacers 101
Walter HERRMANN was given his Pistons debut in the fourth quarter. He was given less than 10 minutes of time play on which he notched 2 points & 1 rebound.

Memphis Grizzlies 83 Houston Rockets 103

As expected, Luis SCOLA needs to step up his game in the absence of Tracy McGRADY. Tonight against the Grizzlies, again he did just that.

I think we need to build a solid team, and be able to win with whatever we have," SCOLA said of playing without T-Mac, the league's 10th-best scorer at 22.8 a game. "If we want to do something big, we need to be solid. We need to have four or five people step up."
Alongside YAO Ming, he finished off the game with a career high 22 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist & 2 steals.

This goes to show that what the Rockets have been missing from him which is given the right role he will produce qualitative performance.

Chicago Bulls 103 Milwaukee Bucks 99

Interim coach Jim BOYLAN had a dream start after being promoted to head coach following the departure of Scott SKILES.

Despite the fouls and turnovers, Andres NOCIONI finished off the game with 11 points & 9 rebounds.

Field goal percentage is 31.9%. Who would win a game with such a low scoring percentage? The 83-73 loss to the Toronto Raptors should wake the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs played awful having 19 turnovers and there were a lot of technical fouls. Can you tell me what happened, I wasn't able to watch the game? I'm feeling really bad. I hope Manu gets back soon and Brent too.

I guess it's just one of those days. Certainly this really shows they need some fire power from the bench, who else if not Manu GINOBILI.


Houston Rockets 91 Toronto Raptors 79

Luis SCOLA posted 6 points, 9 rebounds & 1 assist. While Carlos DELFINO posted 5 points, 1 rebound & 1 assist.

I was pleasantly surprised to see the Raps beat Spurs on their home turf on this road trip after losing to Portland and lowly Seattle. Even though I cherish watching Ginobili, especially against my team, I'm not complaining he didn't play. I'll take the win :)
