An early Christmas Gift for Real from Pipita

Having lost four of their previous five league matches, change of coach and now 12 points adrift in the league, things are not looking that good for the All Whites of Madrid. Against Valencia they had something to cheer, thanks to Gonzalo HIGUAIN.

After a brilliant move from Arjen ROBBEN from which he got pass two defenders before pulling the ball back to HIGUAIN. Pipita sliced a left footed shot past Renan BRITO into the far top corner to score his 11th goal of the season.

They were also cheer to the other side of Madrid as well. A double strike from Maxi RODRIGUEZ and one from Kun AGUERO, helped Atletico defeat Espanyol 3-2.


NBA News - Chapu Back in the Bulls Lineup

With Drew GOODEN missing the game against the Utah Jazz with a sprained ankle, Andres NOCIONI was called upon to start for the Bulls to help strengthened their front line. Not a surprise move considering that Chapu has been improving in the last couple of games.

Well the Bulls won the game 106-98 and for Chapu he was again on the high again helping them to keep up their position in the Eastern Conference. He posted 15 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals along the process.

The San Antonio Spurs are back to winning mode after suffering back to back defeats they downed the Toronto Raptors 107-97. Not one of his best night but Manu GINOBILI was equally important with his contribution of 13 points, 7 rebounds & 3 assists. Fabricio OBERTO was not in action as he missed another game with a sore left foot.

While the Houston Rockets defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves 109-102, with Luis SCOLA posting just 3 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assists.

Two good wins in a row from the Spurs! They are back...

I am starting to worry Oberto's foot may keep him out for awhile. I hope not.

The announcers said last night it is a strained muscle in his foot, and it has been hurting him for a long time.

Hopefully some more rest and he is fine.

Also, I forgot to say, the announcers said Oberto didn't tell anyone about his injury. He just kept playing until it hurt so much he could not take it anymore. This is what worries me he may be out for awhile. It doesn't sound like a nagging pain. It sounds like an injury.
