On the Road Back Home

14 05 2008

Interestingly enough, Manu Ginobili seems to have better statistical showings on road games. 

At home numbers:
17.9 points while shooting 44.9% from the field, 4.4 rebounds and 4.4 assists

On the road numbers:
21.0 points while shooting 47.0% from the field, 5.2 rebounds and 4.5 assists

Tim Duncan’s only home-to-road game difference shows up in point production: 18.3 points at home and 20.3 on the road.

None of the other notable Spurs showed drastic home-to-road statistical differences.

This is really inconclusive to me.  On home-cooking, the Spurs can better execute their defense-first gameplan.  They are a tremendous home-court team so a slow-paced game with an insistence on ball-control and good shots is just what the doctor ordered. 

During these playoffs, when the Spurs lose, they lose big.  And when they win, it’s always an entertaining game.  Game 6 in San Antonio is going to be great.

I hate to say this but despite how much I wish Spurs will go far in the playoffs I guess the time has come for them to pass the torch to another team.

The Hornets are the new dynasty in the making and they have shown plenty of determination in their game to prove my statement.

Spurs do have experience but bare in mind it is a team that is getting older and older everyday. The time has rightfully enough for Big POPO to start building the team for the future.

The again, strange things do happen in sports these days, so I guess I should just keep my fingers cross until it is really over.

What about your thought of the game? Please do share them with me…..
