NBA News – Oberto Shines As Duncan’s Deputy

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any news and latest updates from our tallest athletes in the NBA. Pretty much been busy lately.

Manu GINOBILI is expected to return to action for the San Antonio Spurs soon but in the meantime, his Alamo teammates have been keeping things pretty tight for the second spot in the Western Conference. Today against the Minnesota Timberwolves, they kept that momentum going with a 93-86 win.

Fabricio OBERTO was given extended minutes on the court in place of rested Tim DUNCAN, did not fail to make use of his opportunity. He was a sensation for the Spurs bench, posting 12 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists plus a steal and a block shot to his credit.

Life goes on for Andres NOCIONI in Sacramento as the Kings fell to the Atlanta Hawks 97-119. Chapu now a starter for his new team posted 11 points, 2 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals and a block shot.

Walter HERRMANN had about 8 minutes plus outing for the Detroit Pistons 101-103 loss to the Dallas Mavericks, posted 2 points and a steal only.
