NBA News - Manu Steer Spurs Over Kobe’s Lakers, Diego Inspires Inter

Remember that painful defeat in last year’s Western Conference. That foul that was not call in Game 4. Since then it look like Kobe BRYANT has always got the better of Manu GINOBILI (semi-final at the Olympics).

But not this time! Manu was major force coming from the bench as he posted a team high 27 points, 3 rebounds, 2 assists & 3 steals. Fabricio OBERTO did not featured for the game. Check out this block by Manu on the reigning MVP

Another good news came from Toronto, as the Chicago Bulls notch a rare away 102-98 win against the Raptors. Andres NOCIONI was alive in this game posting 16 points, 4 rebounds, 3 assists & 1 block shot.

Football - Cup Game Highlights

With Diego watching from the stands, it was a real chance for the Albiceleste Army at Inter to impress him for a place in next month’s friendly against France. Esteban CAMBIASSO could do no wrong as he scored against Genoa with Nicolas BURDISSO, Walter SAMUEL, Javier ZANETTI and Hernan CRESPO were all in the starting line up. Sadly Diego MILITO was injured for the game.

I may not be a big Inter supporters though they have a soft spot for me in Italian football. I guess Diego’s presence there could do no wrong for Jose and his boys.

In Spain, youngster Pablo PIATTI gave Almeria some hope of a comeback against Real Mallorca in the 3rd minute but the match ended in a 1-1 draw. Mallorca will progress with 4-2 aggregate win. I’m sure we will hear more about him during the 'Juventudes de América' in Venezuela.

That was a great Laker-Spurs game and I am glad that the Spurs won even though I live in Los Angeles.

Here is DI Maria's great goal, scored it while Maradona was in the stands.
Jack!

Hey John,

This is one of those games where I can’t complain about the Spurs supporting cast. I don’t know what to do with myself!

San Antonio played very well across the board. They should be very pleased with their performance. George Hill in particular continues to amaze me with his play, great pickup for San Antonio.

Manu was a man on a mission in the first half and it was beautiful to watch. He sliced and diced that Lakers defense with ease. 19 points in 14 minutes.

I would love to have Nocioni on the Raptors, and there's lots of rumours going on about Raps-Bulls trades.
