suns vs. spurs game 2: it's a blowout


the suns gambled in obtaining the services of shaq to help them get past the san antonio spurs. much has been said about this so i'm no longer going there. the series between the suns and the spurs will be shifting to arizona with the spurs holding a 2-0 advantage after manu and tony took over game 2 of the series.

how would the suns fare in their homecourt and what would be the key to finally winning a game in this series? well, i don't know really as i'm no expert. again, am just typing here what comes to mind.

first off, shaq is no longer the stud that he was with the lakers or the heat in his first season there. but, the big guy can neutralize tim duncan by matching him point for point. sure, timmy's a better perimeter shooter than shaq, but shaq owns him in the paint. so, shaq should get the ball where he can easily score. he may not be as fast as he once was but his size and strength would no doubt give him that distinct advantage inside the paint against any one in the san antonio lineup.

this series, or at least the first two games just shows that the san antonio ballclub becomes an entirely different team come playoffs time. if they can sweep the spurs, then they have a really good chance of finally winning a back to back title. :D
