Washington Wizards – San Antonio Spurs 84-106

 

 

 

Spurs has won for the seventh consecutive time in front of Washington, winning by 106-84 at home.

Since the start of the match, the 2 teams have practiced a tough game. Mike Miller (Wizards) left the field injured and didn’t return until the very end of regular the time. Spurs ruled the first quarter, 27-21 taking advantage of the many mistakes of the Wizards and because of the good game under the hoop, created by Tim Duncan.

In the second quarter, Washington had to wait no less than 2 minutes, until they managed to score. The shortest man on the field, Earl Boykins (1.65 m) had enough trouble scoring with players like Ratliff and Duncan in front of him, who managed recovering the ball 20 times.

Even if the percentage of successful free throws decreased for the hosts too, San Antonio entered the break with an advantage of 12 points, 52-40, with Tony Parker as the best scorer (13 points). The Frenchman went on the field after 4 games because of his ankle problems which managed to keep him on the bench. On the other side, Arenas has managed 33% of the throws, with 4 baskets in 12 attempts.

The meeting went as bad as it could for Washington, which reached 2 negative terminals: the most dramatic defeat of the season and 7 games without a victory in front of the team of Tim Duncan. Until the final whistle, the Wizards could not match them so those of San Antonio won clearly, by a difference of 22 points, 84-106.

“Even if we didn’t have the best start to the season, we feel it’s better every day and our trust is growing. Over 2 days we have a match with Milwaukee and we must confirm our value,” said Tim Duncan (Spurs).

Spurs gathered their fifth victory, while the Wizards can’t pride themselves with no less than 3 successes.

San Antonio is staying home and expected the visit of the Bucks in the next game, and Washington will return home for the dispute with Philadelphia.

Detroit goes to the Van Andel Arena for a new game in the NBA pre-season in the company of the Washington Wizards. The Pistons have so far 3 wins from 3 matches, all obtained at home.

Washington has 1 win and 2 defeats, the victory with Portland also acquired on it’s own arena. The difference between the 2 teams seems rather large, the Wizards unfortunately left the impression after this pre-season matches that it would not be too difficult to beat.

Detroit is a team that can go in the play off this season, but to do so it must win every match even the ones considered friendly, the NBA season is going to start in 2 weeks. The 2 teams are in the Eastern Conference, where Orlando got 4 wins in 4 games. Gordon, Bynum and Stuckey are some of the most important players of the Pistons, players that can make a difference in the hard matches to come for Detroit Pistons games.
