The Spurs came out of the gate and looked solid. The Celtics leaned on Pierce in the first quarter and he kept Boston close. Something I've noticed about the Spurs. They don't have THAT guy. The guy who's not the nice guy. A guy that will not take all the crap that the Celtics dish out. Does that matter? Probably not, but we shall see.
Tim Duncan is a beast. He is better than Keven Garnet and appears that he always will be. The only folks who won't admit that fact of life are either Boston fans or disillusioned by KG's yelling prowess. Duncan came out strong and didn't look back. My only complaint of him was the 5 turnovers. A little rusty, maybe?
I'm not sure what the hell that first paragraph is all about. Pierce was money last night. He did everything. Shoot. Rebound. Pass. Did he dish out crap? Yes – if your definition of crap is domination.
Tim Duncan, in my opinion, is the greatest power forward to ever play the game. And I always thought that was the consensus opinion. So I'm not sure why this dude has some insecurity about KG.
Duncan is no longer a beast. He's a shell of his former self. But he's still good enough to score on guys who stand 5 inches shorter (Glen Davis).
