I am back guys and with a new feature that I am going to be bringing to my blog. As you can tell by the picture I am using NBA LIVE 10 from the PS3 to simulate up and coming games for the Spurs this coming season. With that being said here is the outcome of the game I played earlier today for the preseason action as the Cleveland Cavaliers take on the San Antonio Spurs tonight at the AT&T Center.
The starting lineups that I see fit for tonights game:
PG – Mo Williams
SG – Anthony ‘There Tony’ Parker
SF – LeBron ‘King’ James
PF – Anderson Varajeo
C – Shaquille O’Neal
San Antonio Spurs
PG – Tony Parker
SG – Manu Ginobili
SF – Richard Jefferson
PF – Tim Duncan
C – Antonio McDyess
That is the starting five that I see for tonights game and I had set for my simulation today. Don’t worry Spurs fans I did get DuJuan Blair in the game as well. I see the starters playing a pretty good amount of time tonight during the game as I had most play alot during my simulation.
Here we go:
The game started off pretty slow offensively for both teams. Tony Parker and Tim Duncan went to work early on with pick and rolls and Tony getting some nice open looks for quick scores. LeBron James and company could not buy a bucket as nothing was falling for the team. The end of the first would draw to a near as both teams combined to score just 26 points.
Spurs won the quarter 14-12.
Scoring picked up in the second quarter as LeBron and Company came out firing. Mo Williams paced them in the second with numerous jump shots from the outside. LeBron found some nice lanes as he took advantage and threw down some nasty dunks.
Surely LeBron will be bringing his highlights tonight during the game but this go around, Tony Parker would be the one with the biggest highlight of the night. Both teams scoring as stated would come up as they finished with 20 each. At the half the Spurs were up by just two points 34 to 32.
Second half the game would be much more entertaining that than the first. Richard Jefferson would hit some key shots as would Manu Ginobili. Tim Duncan was not much a factor in the first half on the offensive end but he did help grab 12 rebounds.
Duncan would finish with a double double, 12 points and 21 rebounds.
With a back and forth duel going in the second the Spurs Tony Parker would lift the team to a 78 to 76 win with a jumper with just 1.5 left.
Parker would finish the game with a high of 24 points. He also had 5 assists. Here is the rest of the stats from the game:
Mo Williams – 18 points, 3 assists
Anthony Parker – 2 points, 2 rebounds
LeBron James – 17 points, 7 rebounds
Anderson Varajeo – 12 point, 11 rebounds
Shaquille O’Neal – 9 points, 7 rebounds
Zydrunas Illgauskas – 8 points, 10 rebounds
J.J. Hickson – 4 points, 2 rebounds
Delonte West – 6 points, 2 assists
San Antonio Spurs
Manu Ginobili – 10 points, 2 assists
Richard Jefferson – 15 points, 2 rebounds
Tim Duncan – 12 points, 21 rebounds
Antonio McDyess – 8 points, 7 rebounds
DeJuan Blair – 2 points, rebound
Roger Mason – 5 points
Attatched are some more pictures I took during the game. I hope all will like this addition to the blog and I hope to get comments on it. Yeah it can look at as being a ‘child’ thing but hell I don’t care this is the best way for me to simulate a game and what better than playing it out yourself.
