EMBARK ON RODEO ROAD TRIP
The San Antonio Spurs survived Kobe’s final appearance and the Los Angeles Lakers Friday night 106-102 at the AT&T Center in what turned out to be a very sloppy game for the Silver and Black…but it was hard not to just watch the magnificence of Kobe. To some of the Spurs vets, it had that old time rivalry feel and the sidelines even included a music superstar not known for Spurs games, Selena Gomez, who was obviously rooting for the Silver and Black.
“I thought it was great,” San Antonio point guard Tony Parker said. “It was a great game, fans were into it. It felt a little bit like the old days in the playoffs, Spurs and the Lakers.”
Even Coach Popovich, who acknowledged the sloppy game, was caught watching Bryant.
“It was a pretty sloppy game from our perspective,” Coach Popovich said. “And you hate to think it’s because they had an easy time last night [against the Mavericks], but you wonder about it and you talk about it. It’s the NBA and everybody comes to play and everybody comes to win. It’s all the same stuff every night. You’ve got to execute, and we didn’t for a lot of the game, and [LA] was fired up. It was a great night for Kobe, which is thrilling to me because I think he’s great. But now, we can enjoy the Dallas win. Losing tonight would’ve taken that away, so we’re glad it came out the way it did.”
The San Antonio Spurs have set another mark in franchise history by moving past the 1977-78 Portland Trailblazers record of 27 straight wins at home after beating the New Orleans Pelicans 110-97 at the AT&T Center last night. The team was led by newcomer LaMarcus Aldridge who exploded for 36 points, six rebounds and three blocks.
“The ball has been going in,” Aldridge said. “I’m taking the shots and making them. Playing more confident and more like myself and I think that the team has fed off that energy.”
The big man’s play has come on at a time when Superstar Tim Duncan has missed multiple games but there is no argument that Duncan’s presence is sorely missed in the middle.
“LaMarcus is feeling more and more comfortable all the time as the season progresses,” San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. “I thought he was magnificent on both ends. Anthony (Davis) got three points in the fourth quarter, and LaMarcus did a great job on him. So, I thought he was special.”
