Duncan, Spurs Handle Clippers: Remain Unbeaten in 2012 Playoffs
Tim Duncan’s double-double led the San Antonio Spurs to a 108-92 win over the Los Angeles Clippers in game one of the Western Conference Semi-Finals.
Duncan finished with 26 points and 10 rebounds, showing the younger Clippers team a how it’s done in the postseason. After an eight-day lay off the Spurs remain red-hot and haven’t lost a game in more than a month.
I’m not surprised they beat the Clippers, especially with Blake Griffin not playing at 100%.
The Spurs straight were absolutely filthy from down-town, tieing a franchise playoff record with 13 three-point field-goals. I don’t care who you are, if you hit 13 3-pointers in a playoff game, you’re going to win the game.
They only got two points from their best player… tony parker and still managed to win by sixteen.
Going into Wednesday night’s games, the Spurs and the Thunder have yet to lose in the playoffs. Before last night OKC was listed as my favorite to win it all, but after watching the Spurs carefully slice the Los Angeles defense apart; I’m not sure the Spurs will be beaten. This of course if assuming Chris Bosh never returns, because I think a healthy Heat squad would win it all.
As of right now, I’m putting Timmy and San Antonio as the current front-runner for a 2012 NBA Championship… something I didn’t think I would be saying at the beginning of the year, much less when the playoffs started.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the Spurs get out of this series with a sweep and rest up for the Western Conference Finals.
