Oportuna victoria de Indiana ante Dallas 104-99, con 8 pts (3-6 TC) y 5 rebotes de Scola. Indiana pelea por el 8° lugar del Este.
Triplete de victorias argentinas en la NBA. ¿El que más anotó? Prigioni, 10 en HOU-WAS. Scola, 8 en IND-DAL y Ginóbili, 4 en SAS-MEM.
George Hill tried to post up Rondo again, but pass to Scola leads to turnover. Rondo's not going to be outdone on 2 straight plays
All tied at 89 with 5:47 remaining in the game. Vogel sticking with Scola and Mahinmi for a big portion here. Hibbert/West combined for 22 p
Wade refers to Andre Drummond as "that monster down there."
Luis Scola gets called for blocking Dirk's vision. Or something.
If Parker and Splitter weren't so selfish Leonard might already have it.
Now Splitter scores, and 1. Spurs have 22 points on the first 10 possessions of 4th quarter with a FT to come. They're up 92-77.
Diaw having a playfully spirited tactical chat with Ime Udoka, ends it by tossing sweat-soaked towel in his face.
Calathes se las esta viendo negras! No lo puede agarrar a Kiwi ni adentro del Parthenon!
Calathes is going to pull his hair out, trying to figure out how to stop Leonard in the post.
The Pistons got 63 points, 20 rebounds & 26-of-34 shooting from Reggie Jackson & Andre Drummond & somehow lost to a team w/ 7 guys.
End 3rd: Spurs 70, Memphis 66. Spurs had led by as many as 13 early in the quarter. Splitter leads three in double-figures w/ 12.
Diaw and Randolph in full-fledged endomorphic combat down on the low block.
Poor Diaw might retire after ZBo beats him half to death on the post.
On press row, we've set Spoelstra post-game "warrior" references to Haslem at 2.5. I went over. He had 18 & 13, playing C vs. Drummond.
Heat beat Pistons 109-102. Dwyane Wade: 40p, 6r, 4a Reggie Jackson: 31p, 9a, 6r Andre Drummond: 32p, 14r, 2b http://t.co/q3edSL9Izx
Career-high 32 points for Andre Drummond.
Projected Heat starting lineup against the Spurs on Tuesday: Zoran Dragic, Henry Walker, Tyler Johnson, Juwan Howard, Burnie
That hand-to-hand combat between Splitter and Z-Bo was something else.
Tiago Splitter with the score between Zbo and Gasol. Tiago has now scored in double-figures in 6 of his last 9 games.
Splitter's patented goofball hook gives Spurs their largest lead at 13, 59-46.
Heat about to beat the Pistons with Henry Walker playing second-half center against Andre Drummond.
Gasol now 1 for 7
Tyler Johnson, Henry Walker and Zoran Dragic are the only Heat players not injured or playing injured right now.
Chandler Pasons just threw down a splendid dunk, but Luis Scola counters by drawing a foul on Tyson Chandler.
Pistons have finally discovered that the Heat have no tall people, and are throwing lobs to Drummond
Interesting to see Vogel counter Dallas' size of Chandler and Dirk with a front line of West and Scola.
The Spurs shot 39% in the 2Q and were 1/7 from beyond the arc. Splitter scored 6 of his 8 in the 2Q, Jeff Green 10 of his 12 in 2Q.
Half: Spurs 51, Grizzlies 42. SA takes 2Q 23-21. Diaw 10 points, Danny/Duncan/Kawhi/Tiago 31 points. SA shooting 46% w/ 11 assists
I make jokes, but Gasol's first half was brutal: 1 of 6, two points, one airball, a couple silly fouls.
Halftime: Spurs 51, Memphis 42. Diaw w/ 10 pts, Leonard/Duncan/Splitter all w/ 8. Spurs shooting 46 pct, Memphis 41. Z-Bo/Green w/ 12 pts.
Possibly the smallest lineup in Heat history is out on the floor with Dragic, Chalmers, Walker, Ennis and Johnson.
Spoelstra subs in Dragic for Wade. This small lineup can't hold, can it?
Brutal game for Gasol continues with 16 footer that went only 14. Now 1 for 6, w/ 2 pts.
Marc Gasol is totally blowing his audition.
Kid hits a half court shot off glass during timeout, gets a standing O from Quinn Buckner and J.J. Barea
Hockey assist extraordinaire -- Parker rolls off Duncan screen, hits Duncan rolling, quick pass over to Splitter for the dunk. Sublime.
The Luis Scola fastbreak!
The NBA's March Madness: because of injuries, Henry Walker is playing center against Andre Drummond.
Putting Walker at center has forced Drummond to leave the paint. Spoelstra just trying to use any edge he can find.
