Mc Callum: Nine times out of 10 Barry's shot doesn't fall

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200....observations/

The first five days of the playoffs have brought few surprises, outside of Brent Barry's high-bounce corner jumper actually making it into the basket in Game 2 of the San Antonio-Sacramento series. Nine times out of 10 ... make that 19 times out of 20, that shot doesn't go in. Had the Kings defeated the Spurs without the suspended Ron Artest, now that would've been a big surprise.

Here's a five-pack of thoughts that are on my mind while we wait to see if Miami's Udonis Haslem practices better dental hygiene in Game 3 on Thursday night.

The contrast between San Antonio and Detroit
From Day One these teams have been my pick to make it to the Finals, and nothing has changed. But it's fascinating the degree to which San Antonio, the champion, changed its team over the summer, while Detroit elected to play with a pat hand.

Nick Van Exel and Michael Finley, two offseason pickups, are playing key roles for the Spurs. And Barry, whose Hail Mary three got the Spurs into overtime in Game 2, was on the trading block during the season. Since then, he's played some of the best basketball of his career.

The Pistons, meanwhile, just keep rolling along, as predictable as an Artest screwup. Unlike most coaches, Flip Saunders will not be shrinking his rotation in the postseason. It's been pre-shrunk. Pencil in his starting five, insert Antonio McDyess for offense, Lindsey Hunter for defense and Maurice Evans (the one new face from last season) for a little of both.

9 times out of 10, Barry makes that wide open shot.

I didn't know facing the basket, squaring your shoulders, and shooting from just beyond the arc was considered a Hail Mary.

Isn't sports journalism great?

That shot should have swished.

Maybe Bones should be credited only with an assist, seeing as how the basket was actually slammed down with authority by the Holy Mother...

(...who then hung from the rim for a while, before beating her chest and calling the Kings all sorts of words their own mothers never taught them.)

(While hanging off the rim her swinging size 5s maliciously kicked Manu's arm into Horry. Instant karma.)

(How did her dunk count for three when most only score 2? That's the miracle, my friends...)

I could be wrong, but I think he meant that the shot that hits the rim and bounces around like Barry's doesnt go in 9 out of 10 times, not necessarily Barry shooting a 3 would not go in 9 out of 10 times.

You're probably right, but it's the playoffs, so we show more disgust than usual towards "analysts". I know I didn't hate Steven Smith nearly as much during the '04-'05 regular season as I did during the post -season.

He even said he was surprised that it didn't go in cleanly. A guy who is 3/6 from 3 with a wide open shot?

I think he is commenting more on the lucky bounces rather than barry's ability to knock down an open 3 from the corner.

you gotta admit that your heart starting to sink when that ball bounced like that.

Why don't we hear more about how Sacto couldn't capitalize when the Spurs defense took the night off? Thats probably a more accurate protrayal than stating San Antonio required a lucky shot to win.

Quin Barry, the 5 ½-year-old son of the San Antonio Spurs' Brent Barry, had fallen asleep long before dad's lucky-bounce three-pointer forced overtime in Game 2 of their playoff series against the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday.

According to the San Antonio Express-News, the kid didn't sound all that impressed when he finally did learn about it, either.

"Mom says you made a three-pointer," Quin said as he greeted his dad. "Do you want to see my light saber?"

just sweep the kings. really, because if the kings win their next two home games and push this thing to a game 7 and lose the series, everyone will be pointing at that last second barry shot.

the same way everyone would've been pointing at that .4 shot fisher made if they beat detroit in the finals. everyone wearing .4 t-shirts

I second that...

...like I said in another thread, the Kings would have been lucky if he missed that shot.

This is just further proof that people DO NOT respect the Spurs.
