Just got back from the game; Clips hung tough but couldn't pull it off in the end.  Kaman and Thornton looked great for the Clips but we didn't get much out of anyone else.  Sam didn't look good, TThomas was invisible other than one 3ball, and Maggette couldn't put together any streaks.  I'm obviously biased, but the refereeing seemed terrible.  Clips got 3 fouls on one possession and I think the Spurs picked up their third foul of the 4th quarter with about 35 seconds left in the game.

Parker was unguardable and is probably second to only Iverson as far as his ability to score in the paint at that size.

Ginobli is so smooth and just a joy to watch.  A little out of control at times and he still likes to flop and flail, but he's a hell of a player.

Thornton's confidence was high today.  He believed he could take any of the Spurs off the dribble.  He put a sweet move on Bowen to score on a fast break and had some nice up-and-under moves against Bonner and Horry.  He really takes advantage of his athletic ability on the offensive end.  His release on his jump shot happens at the peak of his jump -- and man, does he get up!  I hope he continues to see a lot of playing time.

Duncan had his hands full with Kaman.  Here's where we really missed Brand; the Spurs can't match up with him.  He would have torched Horry, Oberto, and Bonner.  I guess there's always next year -- that's why we're the Clippers.....

Hey manu!

Nice game thread.  You were right on the money with the x-factors.  Parker was the difference maker and Mobley was just any other player on the floor.
