The San Antonio Spurs beat the Sacramento Kings 122-88. After getting 73 in the first half the Spurs cooled down for 49 in the 2nd half but still blew them out. Tony Parker led the way with 25 points and 5 boards in 25 minutes. Tony didn't have to play much and did great and will be well rested in the next game. Nazr Mohammed 18 points and 8 boards in 25 minutes. Mohammed was great and along with every Spur put some points up on the board. Tim Duncan got 11 points and 7 boards in 24 minutes. Duncan will get rest and that will be key to rest his bad foot. Manu Ginobili got 10 points and 5 boards in 23 minutes. Ginobili was great and just like the other starter will get good rest. Michael Finley got 10 points and 7 boards in 20 minutes. Finley was great and has be big off the bench for the Spurs to be affective. Nick Van Exel got 11 points and 1 steal in 18 minutes. Van Exel has to have the bounce in his step and they were a few bounces too many for the Kings. Rasho Nesterovic got 10 points and 7 boards in 24 minutes. Nesterovic was great also and he needs to carry this to the next game. Mike Bibby got 17 points and 4 boards in 32 minutes. Bibby gave it his all but he and the rest of the Kings have to forget this game and win the next one. Ron Artest got 16 points and 4 assists in 36 minutes. Artest carried the team at the start and it was all lost from their on.
