SPURS BEAT MACCABI TEL AVIV 97-84!
The San Antonio Spurs beat the Euroleague's Maccabi Tel Aviv 97-84 in the Europe Live games. I thought the Spurs would win but I knew Maccabi would give them a run for their money and they did. The sharp shooting of Maccabi kept them close. Tony Parker got 27 points. Parker was acrobatic. His moves over the Maccabi big men were eye popping. Tim Duncan had 15 points and 11 boards. Old school stats for Tim. Tim will start with a flare this season and is smoking already. Manu Ginobili got 10 points. He didn't have his best game. The Spurs big three always has two that will usually stand out each game and Ginobili wasn't it this time. Jamie Arnold got 15 points and 9 boards for Maccabi. Good game for Arnold. Rodney Buford who plays for Maccabi now added 8 points. Interesting to see he's playing in the Euroleague now. Stay tuned to Basketball Notes by Alex for all of your preseason coverage.
GO SPURS!
