The Austin Toros' season kicked off last night with a road game against the Santa Cruz Warriors.
While the Toros had six players finishing in double figures, they couldn't keep up with the Warriors and Seth Curry.
While the Toros started each half strong, the Warriors went on big runs and blew the game open in the second and fourth, including a 39 point second quarter.
Curry scored 36 points and dished out six assists. Dan Nwaelele, who was in training camp with the San Antonio Spurs and the Toros, added 16 points, eight rebounds and six assists for the Warriors.no comments
With 6:37 left in the fourth quarter between the San Antonio Spurs and Memphis Grizzlies, Grizzlies guard Tony Allen made a lengthy jump shot to cut the Spurs’ once 14-point lead down to just one point, 79-78.
As he had done in three previous games when he was needed most, Spurs guard Tony Parker would answer the call of the ‘closer’ Friday as he once again made the fourth quarter “Tony” time.
Just 23 seconds after Allen made his jumper, Parker would make his own four-foot jumper. On the next offensive possession, Parker was fouled and connected on his two free throws. He would continue to help the Spurs create separation from the Grizzlies as he scored 11 points in a span of about five minutes of the fourth quarter to help the Spurs defeat the Grizzlies by 16 points, 102-86.no comments
With friends like this, who needs enemies?
Mavericks' Vince Carter and Rockets' Dwight Howard may be buddies (as Carter puts it) but if calling out your buddy as a "crybaby" then maybe that's not a friend.
Carter, who spent a little more than a season in Orlando with Howard, said after the Mavericks’ 123-120 win over the Rockets that they’re buddies, but that Howard is still “the biggest crybaby I know.”no comments
During the San Antonio Spurs eleven point victory on Wednesday night against the visiting Boston Celtics, Manu Ginobili was up to his usual tricks. There are times that we sit back and watch Ginobili doing his flashy passes, unorthodox shots, bone-headed plays, okay let me stop there before I get to carried away.
What he did toward the end of the third quarter was so Manu-esque that it got everyone in the AT&T Center on their feet and it truly was a momentum builder for the team heading into the final quarter. I cannot even begin to explain what Ginobili did and how he managed to get the ball to Diaw. Just watch.no comments

With the television commercials of all the prime athletes in the NBA, is San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker's statement about the NBA being really Hollywood that far of a stretch?
In an interview back in September with GQ magazine, Parker talked about everything from, please forgive me, the Finals against the Miami Heat last season, the NBA dress code, being a poker addict and lastly a businessman.
Though we would all love to dive into and love knowing what these athletes do off the floor, Parker's statement on the NBA being Hollywood is what we are going to focus on.no comments
