Heat-Spurs II is now the most exciting ticket in Sports

The San Antonio Spurs vaulted themselves into history with a 112-107 road victory over the Western Conference number two seed Oklahoma City Thunder and earned the chance at a rematch with the defending NBA Champion Miami Heat who beat the Indiana Pacers in six games.

Odds makers currently have the Spurs slightly ahead to win the match up but what we do know is this:

  • Spurs Heat I went seven games
  • San Antonio is ranked 2nd in offense and 2nd in defense during the playoffs
  • Miami is ranked 1st in offense and 6th in defense

In Miami, LeBron James was watching the Spurs close out the Thunder and remarked on comments made by Spurs PF Tim Duncan after the game.

“We’re excited about it,” Duncan said in post game interviews. ” We’ve got four more to win. We’ll do it this time,” adding  “We’re happy it’s the Heat again. We’ve got that bad taste in our mouths still.”

“They don’t like us, they don’t. I can sense it from Timmy’s comments over the last couple of days,” James said after the Heat held an extended practice on Monday. “They wanted this, they wanted us and we’ll be ready for the challenge.”

As for tickets, prices are going through the roof.  In San Antonio, tickets  for the upper level are generally beginning at $275.00 and can go all the way to $21,ooo for a Terrace Level seat.  At Alamo Tickets, prices are ranging from $296.00 each (upper balcony)  to $4,500 each (court side behind Heat bench).  Be sure to get your tickets now before they are all gone!




Spurs take 3-2 Series lead

The San Antonio Spurs took another step in realizing their quest of getting back to the NBA Finals by thrashing the Oklahoma City Thunder 89-117.  The beating was thorough and precise and the Spurs played high level basketball against a very, very good basketball team.  It is exactly what you should get from a #1 seed taking on a #2 seed Western Conference finals.

“We absolutely believe we can (in OKC Game six). It’s a tough place to play, and they’re going to be fighting for their lives,” Forward Tim Duncan said after the game.  “But we feel we can play the right way. We take care of the ball. We do the things we’ve been talking about all series long, there’s no reason why we can’t win it.”

Game six is scheduled for Saturday at 7:30 p.m.  Great seats and cheap tickets are still available.  Get yours now!!

Spurs ready for Game Two

After dismantling the Portland Trailblazers in Game 1 of the Western Conference Semi-Finals 92-116, the San Antonio Spurs are hoping that they can bring the same momentum that took down the Dallas Mavericks and set the tone for the series against the Trailblazers.

Game two, scheduled for tonight, will be a challenge for the Spurs as they know that Portland will come out with a lot of fire.

“The key tomorrow is just match their energy,” Parker said after practice Wednesday. “They’re going to come back and they’re going to be very motivated. The way we handle the win, that’s going to make the difference for us.”

For Portland’s La Marcus Aldridge,  a former Texas hoopster,  coming out strong will be the key to leaving San Antonio with a win.

“Most of the guys on our team haven’t even been in the second round and they’ve won championships,” said Aldridge, one of the most experienced Blazers who had 32 points and 14 rebounds. “They’ve been here. I think they definitely came out and they let us know how it’s going to be. I think every guy on the team understands that.”
