The last occasion that I remember seeing the Raptors when they travel to play the Celtics, they were beaten to the core.
But today the effort of an entire team was needed if they had to overcome PIERCE-GARNETT-ALLEN.
Though 4 of their started were in double-digit points, much of the extra ammunition from the bench came from Carlos DELFINO. He was 100% from the three points.
Eventually he finished off the game by posting 15 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists & 1 steal.
Chicago Bulls 108 Indiana Pacers 95
If the Bulls had to re-affirm their chances on booking a play off spot in Eastern Conference, it had to be this game. And now after winning tonight’s game, they trailed the eight place Pacers by one game.
The day started for the Bulls filled with plenty of uncertainty as both Luol DENG and Ben GORDON had sit out because of injuries. Which means other had to step it up.
True to his class, Andres NOCIONI produce another hit performance with 24 points, 7 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal & 2 block shot to help the Bulls win this game.
San Antonio Spurs 103 Los Angeles Lakers 91
Spurs secured their second successive victory. For a while it may not have look possible as they were trailing for most of the occasion. But in the end that’s just the Spurs that we have always knew.
By his own standard, Manu GINOBILI did have a good night but still played a big part in posting 12 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists & a game high 8 steals.
Fabricio OBERTO started from the bench had no points just a rebound & an assist only.
Seattle Supersonics 107 Houston Rockets 109
