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.

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