The San Antonio Spurs have talked to a number of lottery teams about trading their All-Star point guard Tony Parker in exchange for a high first-round draft pick. Earlier this Summer, Parker noted to French reporters that he thought the Spurs window of winning another NBA championship had closed.
According to team records, the Spurs are the best the NBA has to offer. Saturday night in New Orleans, the Hornets gave the Spurs the best they had to offer. The result, a dominant performance for the hottest team in the league as the Hornets thump San Antonio 96-72. New Orleans has now won 8 in a row for the second time this season.
In their most thorough victory of the season, the Hornets crushed the Hawks in Atlanta Friday night 100-59. Chris Paul scored sixteen points and dished out eight assists in leading the Hornets to their seventh straight win. As usual, the defense was superb for New Orleans.
We don't know if he did it intentionally, or not, but check out Gary Neal, of the San Antonio Spurs, going down the lane, to get high-fives from teammates, after a made free throw. The problem was, nobody was there!
Jarrett Jack was the biggest, and best piece of a 5 player trade two weeks ago between the Hornets and Raptors. While no one will doubt Jack's skills, it's been slower than expected in regards to learning the Hornets system.
Manu Ginobili scored 15 of his 23 points in the second half, and the San Antonio Spurs overcame a 17-point third-quarter deficit to hand the New Orleans Hornets their first home loss of the season, 109-95 on Sunday.
