Sonics End Skid, Beat the Spurs?

Tonight turned out to be a nightmare for the ailing San Antonio Spurs. Earlier in the day, coach Greg Popovich decided to bench his All-Star point guard Tony Parker indefinitely while he deals with bone spurs in his left foot. Then the team found its way up I-5 to Seattle to take on a team that had not won in 14 straight games. Well that streak came to an end tonight!

The Seattle Supersonics found a way to win tonight against the reigning NBA Champs. Kevin Durant had his first solid game in quite some time including a late basket to seal the deal for his young Sonics. Seattle desperately needed a win like this to try and salvage some of their season.

The Spurs on the other hand are looking bad in all the wrong places. Parker takes a seat for what could be weeks to come leaving the Spurs with an aging Duncan and a busted up Ginobili. Without one of the big 3 this season the Spurs are just 9-9 and have looked horrible at times.

San Antonio began its season at 17-3 and has gone just 11-13 since. The Spurs are 0-2 at the beginning of their annual 9 game road trip in which the AT&T Center gets overrun with stock and rodeo festivities. This could prove to be the turning point in their season and should be the indicator as to what seed they will find come playoff time.

Are we seeing an end to the Spurs run? Are they aging too fast while the rest of the NBA continues to get younger?

  1. Dear ,

    I’m an inter with startup widget 1000 and I created a news widget for Seattle SuperSonics News.
    It’s updated every hours with NBA headlines from several different sports websites like ESPN, FOX Yahoo,etc. (Take a look:http://www.widget1000.com/)

    Can we add Seattle SuperSonics Team blog to the widget,too? That means that every time you post to your blog the headline of the post will show up on the widget and link directly to your post.
    Anyone who puts this widget on their start page or on their website will see your
    Seattle SuperSonics posts too. It’s a powerful and free way to publicize your site.

    Finally, would you add the Seattle SuperSonics News Widget to your site so that others can see it?
    Everyone who grabs the widget will automatically link to you so it’s great for your search engine rankings. Plus, it shows a lot of stories about NBA and since it’s updated every hour it is fresh and will make your site even more appealing than it already is.

    What do you think?
