Spurs still closed them in OT!!!Thank Goodness for Timmmmmmmmmaaaay coming BIG in OT.
Look all I care about is that Spurs got the W...
I don't see any crack of light of hope Memphis can build upon in that fourth quarter come back especially since Tony Allen was just did some fine acting job to get that none flagrant call on Manu which was easily a hard PO foul not a flagrant.... Oh well... Officials were not consistent all game long, but that should not stop Spurs from playing better and forcing the W!!!!
Spurs however I can see them adjust better in game 3. For example Pop can manage Spurs starters minutes wiser which could very well mean Spurs go up 3-0 by then.
Go Spurs Go!
Regarding the refs not being consistent....I personally don't think consistent is the word. Here is what I saw. The spurs came out of halftime pretty much where they left off. They were pretty hot. After a few made buckets, the whistles started pouring in for Memphis. Foul after foul, three on TD in a 30 second span. That slowed the game down, took out our best big man, and put the spurs in the penalty early. That was a big factor in Memphis getting back into it. I think one sided better describes the officiating.
Im not discounting our terrible shooting late. That is the other big factor.
