Defender Picks

 

Spurs Rally, Predictably, for 105-98 Win Over Pelicans


The days when a 12-point lead to begin the fourth quarter against the Spurs inspired optimism and team spirit are gone. Instead, I find mysely skeptical and apathetic as we positioned ourselves to win. Surely the defense will collapse — and do we really want to win anyway? To no one’s surprise, the Spurs scored 38 points in the 4th to rally to a 102-95 win behind Tony Parker’s 32 points & nine assists.


Spurs Deal Pelicans Sixth Straight Loss, 101-95


by Mark Seither

The Pelicans fought hard and gave the Spurs everything they could handle on Monday night in the New Orleans Arena, but three costly turnovers in the final minutes proved fatal to their comeback hopes. New Orleans just didn’t have an answer for Tony Parker in the fourth quarter. Parker led all scorers with 27 points and seven rebounds and hit some big layups to hold the Pelicans at bay.

 


Spurs Manhandle Pelicans, 112-93


by Norris Ortolano

Sometimes when dissecting a loss, one glaring stat will tell you exactly what you need to know in determining the cause. The New Orleans Pelicans shot 38 percent from the floor while allowing the San Antonio Spurs to shoot 54 percent on Monday night. Not a recipe for success. The loss ends the Pelicans' short-lived stint at the .500 mark, dropping them to 6-7 on the season.


Hornets' Late Defensive Collapse Enables Spurs' 106-102 Win


by Norris Ortolano

The New Orleans Hornets' unfortunate trend this season, even sometimes in victory, has been mid-to-late game defensive breakdowns that generally spell doom. On Wednesday night, it was Tony Parker and the San Antonio Spurs who took advantage of Hornets miscues, slicing and dicing their way to a 106-102 victory. The loss drops the Hornets to 14-28 on the season, with only one win in the last three.


Hornets Outlast Spurs, 95-88


Games like Monday night's win over San Antonio give Hornets fans a fleeting glimpse of the playoff team to come. The Hornets held on to a small lead the entire game, resisting every San Antonio run to pull off an impressive 95-88 victory. The Hornets improved to 9-25 on the season, winning consecutive games for only the second time the entire season.


Hornets Lose 10th Straight to Spurs


by Kerem Ozkan

More of the expected Friday night, as the Hornets lost to a better team to conclude their tough four-game road trip. The Spurs were a step faster all night, and the game wasn’t as close as the 99-94 final score would suggest.


Hornets Fall to Spurs in Season Opener, 99-95


by Kerem Ozkan

The debut edition of the 2012 New Orleans Hornets competed for 48 full minutes Wednesday night, but ultimately fell just a little short to the always-composed San Antonio Spurs in their season opener at New Orleans Arena. After leading by 7 at the half, they ended up dropping a game that came down to the final minute by 4 points, 99-95. (Box Score)
