NBA News - Another Walter Show in the Palace
Forget about the Allen IVERSON incident of missing the Detroit Pistons mandatory practice on Thanksgiving Day. Still he did played a big role tonight in the Pistons 107-97 win over the Milwaukee Bucks.
But the other big contributor for the Pistons is also from the bench, Walter HERRMANN. Both him and the Answer combined well from the bench to help the Pistons win.
HERRMANN made five out of six from the three, and finished off with 16 points plus 4 rebounds and 2 assists as the second best performer behind IVERSON. Certainly another fantastic night for Walter as the he brought the Palace down.
For the first time this season, San Antonio Spurs had all their big three available on the court this season when they took on the Memphis Grizzlies. Tim DUNCAN, Manu GINOBILI and Tony PARKER reunited to beat the Grizzlies 109-89.
This can only bad news for the rest of the league, as from the starting of the season the Spurs were written off being old and no longer competitive to compete for the Championship. They must re-think about the tonight.
For Manu in particular, he was back to his usual self as he made one acrobatic lay up after another. He was again phenomenal from the bench posting 14 points, 1 rebound and 2 assists.
The other Albiceleste, Fabricio OBERTO was the starting center posted 4 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists. Among the highlights of the night, was OBERTO easy lay up after receiving a no-look pass from PARKER.
