Spurs take Hornets in Season Opener 99-95

Duncan leads team to victory

Time seems to have again stopped for the ageless PF from San Antonio.  Tim Duncan experienced another great season opener scoring 24 points on 10-15 shooting from the field.  He also raked in 11 rebounds and dished three assists while shooting 4-5 from the free throw line.

“Their (the Hornets) youth and athleticism made it difficult for us,” San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. “It’s a great group of guys, and it’s going to be a fun team to watch. If Timmy doesn’t do what he does, that’s a loss for us.”

Tony Parker chipped in 23 points and Kawhi Leonard (who had a spectacular 3rd quarter) added 19 points and was a perfect 4-4 from the line.

The Spurs take on the Oklahoma City Hornets in their home opener tonight at the AT&T Center. Be sure to get your tickets and welcome the Spurs to the 2012/13 NBA Season.
