About the only reason to watch this game was to see the Jazz and their fans go nuts. And I can't blame them. Especially when the AP article on the game started off like this "With each drive to the basket and each fall to the floor -- flop or not -- Manu Ginobli made the Utah Jazz and their fans angrier and angrier." That sentence makes it clear the shit hit the fan in a nice subtle way.
Even better was that the AP article had this gem: "Some of the calls Ginobili got were questionable." That's awesome. I don't think anyone in the world outside of San Antonio likes the Spurs. I also like how the article subtly takes multiple shots at Ginobli and basically calls him a sissy. Which he is.
Even Derek Fisher, probably one of the nicest guys in pro basketball, got pissed as hell about Ginobli's flopping and took a couple of well deserved shots at him. I'm surprised Ginobli was able to get up. Usually a gust of wind is enough to send him to the hospital.
Bruce Bowen also got hit by some lip balm or something as Jazz fans got ornery about some of the questionable calls. And Jerry Sloan got ejected as well.
Also, this game was ugly as hell. Aside from Ginobli's flopping, San Antonio made more free throws (30) than field goals (28).
Only Deron Williams, who continues his quest to become one of the best point guards in the game, was worth watching. He had 27 points and 10 assists despite having been suffering from a stomach flu the past few days.
If you're a fan of NBA basketball, watching the Spurs win this game was incredibly depressing. The Spurs are just a horrible team to watch play and they're about to make the Finals. I don't care who comes out of the East, I'm rooting like hell for them.
