A win for the Chicago Bulls as they defeated the New York Knicks 105-100 in front of new elected Vice-President Joe BIDEN. Andres NOCIONI did manage to post 10 points, 3 rebounds and 2 assists from the bench.
Houston Rockets almost blew a comfortable lead but did manage to overcome the Atlanta Hawks 92-84 with all starters from both teams posting double digit. It was double delight for Luis SCOLA in which he posted 12 points and 10 rebounds, not to forget 2 assists and 2 steals in the process.
But the match of the night, came from the Texas derby between the San Antonio Spurs and Dallas Mavericks. Spurs overcame the Mavs in second over time, 133-126. Wow! Unbelievable.
Another superb performance from the big three, from which Manu GINOBILI posted 18 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists. Also he had a block shot and steal as well.
Fabricio OBERTO was on the bench again, only limited time play (around 7 minutes plus) but was 100% on his shot attempt. He had 6 points and 2 rebounds. Small but equally important contribution from him.
