    Call me crazy, but after last night's piss poor effort I'm not getting the feeling that this a team ready to compete against one of the league's elite tonight.

    My god, Matt Devlin is annoying. It surprises me every time. How can a commentator be that irritating? It doesn't make sense.

    Are the Spurs even a .500 team without Tim Duncan at this point? given how many of their players + team defense is under-performing?

    Superb opportunity to steal a win away from a top team.

    I think the Spurs will need a massive performance out of Ginobili tonight in order to get a win.

    A big offensive night from DeJuan Blair would also be a big difference maker for them.

    Oh, Tim Duncan is coming off the bench tonight. I presumed he was out injured once he wasn't in that starting lineup. Okay, Spurs are the favourites then.

    Raps leading 31-19 early in the second.
