Man, I am loving how old the Spurs are looking against the Hornets. Hopefully the Hornets can keep dominating in SA... its time for the Spurs to become a powerhouse of the past.

Damn......................obviously Im not watching these games, and dont really read the recaps or anything................but what are these guys doing to the Spurs? ie: how are they beating them so badly?

Sounds like they are just running rings around them on offense, and swarming them like............well, Hornets............on defense.

Yeah man, the first game they held Duncan to like 5 points in 1 for 9 shooting. And yesterdays game they held Ginobili and Parker to single digits each I think. I know at the half they were combined for only 11 points.

Yeah, the Hornets are not only are the Hornets shooting incredibly well, but they are not allowing the Spurs to take good shots. As a team the Spurs were not getting shots to fall in Game 2, and Duncan was non existant in Game 1.

In Game 2 the Hornets shot lights out from deep at 58.8% where as San Antonio only shot 29.6%. And the most impressive stat is the turnovers and pts off turnovers. In Game 1 San Antonio commited 13 TOs for 25 pts, while New Orleans had 8 TOs for 10 pts. In Game 2 San Antionio had 15 TOs for 19 pts (they should be luck it was only 19) and New Orleans gave up the ball 9 times for only 7 pts!!!!

What it seems to boil down to is that New Orleans is doing everything right...
