Playoffs News - Super Sub Manu Helps Spurs Take 3-0 Lead

My partner in crime Seba was 100% right. The Suns have been killed mentally after that defeat in Game 1. In Game 2, they could not even hold on to a comfortable lead. Now back in Arizona, just as when others thought they could turn things around, they just didn't.

And guess what? Despite of all their superiority over the Spurs during the regular season and the arrival of Shaq O'NEAL; the possibility of being knocked out by a clean sweep is starring at their face.

I'm not argue who was the best player of the night as I take my hats off for Tony LONGORIA himself. But in my opinion, the main factor that contributed to this result was the fact that coach Gregg POPOVITCH having the luxury to call upon a player like Manu GINOBILI from the bench.
The stats will not lie. He posted 20 points from the bench the same as the entire Suns bench (consisting of 4 players). Not to forget his other contribution consisting 5 rebounds, 1 assist & 1 steal. Don't be surprise because that is what you'll get from the best sixth man in the entire league.

Fabricio OBERTO also started from the bench in favour of Kurt THOMAS but the both of them did fantastic job in curbing the Suns offense. He manages 6 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist & 1 block shot.

Just one more game for the Manu, Fabio & the Spurs to clinch this series. Just to share with everyone, no team has ever came back after going 0-3 down.

After this, with the Premieship crown starring at Carlos TEVEZ & Man Utd face, I'm hopping all could be resolve by today against Chelsea.

It's been a while since I last saw a playoff performance as solid as the one San Antonio had last night as a team.

They were rock-solid. They did EVERYTHING PERFECT. They made Phoenix look average. It was actually a very boring game (especially in the second half).

The Suns had nothing on them. Nothing. They even had to play under the pressure of a very frustrated set of fans.

That certain Tony from France was unstoppable. I mean...look at the numbers from both point guards last night:

Tony PARKER: 41 points, 12 assists, 5 rebounds and 2 steals.

Steve NASH: 7 points, 9 assist, 2 rebounds, 1 block and no steals.

If there was ever a position in which I thought the Suns had the clear advantage was at PG. But Tony has outscored NASH in all three games so far (26 to 25 in Game 1; 32 to 23 in Game 2 and now 41 to 7, for a total of 99 to 55).

This series could end up in what was a very unlikely sweep and I think that will do nothing to harm the Spurs playoff reputation!

san antonio completely crushed the suns last night . the suns need a 'milagro' to come back in this series.

i definitely agree with you coach, the suns need a miracle to jump back from a 0-3 deficit against the spurs.

I was a bit worried about Oberto coming into this series. I've always thought highly of him but I didn't think he did much against Amare or Shaq in the final two Suns/Spurs matchups of the regular season. He's been fantastic. Played strong D, good rebounding, quality passing. He's been important for San Antonio.

The Spurs kind of remind me of the 94-95 Rockets. Those Rockets started out with a very tough first round matchup (Utah, Karl Malone and John Stockton) and an even tougher second round opponent (Suns, Barkley and KJ) that they were forced to play at an incredibly high level to win. By the time the latter stages came about the Rockets were playing at such a high level and so prepared that they beat San Antonio handidly and swept the Magic in the finals.

I get the same feeling watching San Antonio this year in the opening round. I think they're in great shape to win the championship.
