I watched the Chicago Bulls play the San Antonio Spurs last night and boy, were they hammered like I suspected. Not immediately were Chicago dispatched by San Antonio’s offensive plays, but gradually did the Spurs methodically run their plays around Joakim Noah and the paint by the basket. Paint by the basket. That’s not basketball terminology. Oh well. Nobody can rattle Tim Duncan or the game Duncan plays. He was his usual self, impacting the game on both ends of the court offensively and defensively. He really determined the game. The talented team usually wins basketball games. It was the San Antonio Spurs.
