Spurs dominate the second half to win eighth straight game of the year.  More after the jump.

With all the talk around San Antonio yesterday about the split between Tony Parker and his wife Eva Longoria, their was a game to be played and many felt that this would affect Parker in the game but it did not.

Parker scored 21 points in the game.  He stated that it did take him longer to get going and that it was a weird game for him.

The San Antonio Spurs scored just 37 points in the first half.  In the third quarter they scored 37.  Their aggression came out in the second half as they saw the Chicago Bulls cheering in the second as if they were about to humiliate the Spurs on their home court as they (Chicago) went up  by 15.

Everything seemed to be going right for Chicago as they went on a run with their second team in.  Brewer threw down a dunk that brought the Bulls bench to their feet.  The youth of this team really gave us fits.

Derrick Rose did his best to keep his team in the game as he had a game high 33.  I am sure many at the AT&T Center were shaking their head when Rose would make his way to the hole and come up with an acrobatic shot.

Which brings me to Ginobili.  One point in the fourth Ginobili tried to whip the ball around his back but couldn’t get it around but somehow still got it back to his left side and slammed home two points.


With a big third quarter under their belt the San Antonio Spurs knew that this Bulls team would not hold back.  The defense San Antonio had in the third was not their in the fourth.  Chicago hauled off 35 points in the quarter to cut the lead at one point to five.

San Antonio would go on to win their eigth straight game as they won 103 to 94.

Tim Duncan after having not scored 10 points or more in his previous three games came out and dropped in 16 points and grabbed 18 rebounds.

San Antonio will be on the road Friday (11/19) to take on the Utah Jazz.
