• The Milwaukee Bucks had the San Antonio Spurs on the ropes until Manu Ginobili nailed the game-winning shot. Great for the Spurs. Heart-breaking for the Bucks. Here is what Bucks' Brandon Jennings had to say about the loss via Twitter:
Man I'm piss, we had them dudes tonight. But I can say we are getting better, we know what we can do.
Is it me or is this music to Spurs fans' ears?
• The Dallas Mavericks and the Spurs are close in the Western Conference standings and both can lay claim to having a 12 game winning streak. Though the Spurs hold the better record, Eddie Sefko of dallasnews.com says the Mavericks should not worry because the Spurs cannot keep up their winning ways:
The point is that the Spurs aren't going to keep up their jackrabbit pace. It's not going to require another 12-game winning streak for the Mavericks to pass them. Just keep winning the games you are supposed to and a few here and there that you're not.
Need I remind Sefko it doesn't matter how the two teams finish in the standings. The Spurs are a veteran squad and know what they have to do in the playoffs to reach their goal to advance and win an NBA title. Look at last season. The Mavericks had the better record and we all know what happened to the Mavericks when they faced the Spurs in the first-round.
