Spurs vs. Suns, Game 1: Most awaited anticipated game of 2008 NBA Playoffs
As we all know, the 2008 NBA Playoffs has just kicked off. With it came, in my humble opinion, the most awaited match-up between the San Antonio SPURS and the Phoenix SUNS.

A rematch born out of what many believe to be last year's REAL finals went off with a pretty wild start, and it met more than just the expectations.

I, personally, was really up and up and so excited to watch the game. This face-off has been the source of my dreams for some days now. It has made me feel worried, to nauseous, to anxious in a minute. Ack! Yes, dear friends, it is true, I am a SPURS fan. Obvious isn't it?

Last year's match between the SPURS and the SUNS had my blood pressure skyrocketing out of excitement. This time around, I think it just might as well give me a heart attack. I feel the tension between the two teams, and I am not even in the U.S.! This is crazy, but honestly true. And yesterday's game proved it. This is going to be one heck of a series. In fact, this is said to be the 1st round match up in the 2008 NBA Playoffs that is most anticipated. I could not blame them. It has been crazy.

Even though sports analysts and other experts have their bets on the SPURS, even they admit that it is going to be a long hard push to the top. The defending champions sure have their sights mired by the revenge-driven SUNS. Even for the first game alone, admittedly they have given the SPURS a very hard time.


At first, it seemed that Game 1 was not the thriller that everybody hoped it would be. The SUNS controlled the game for a good three quarters, leading at some time by 16 points despite Shaq's early foul trouble. Around the fourth quarter, the SUNS still had a 6-point lead.

The SPURS only got their first lead by the fourth quarter, but were still close to the SUNS by 93-90. With everything tight and tense, they reached overtime. Duncan made the Big Shot in the first overtime after finding himself alone at the 3-point line, with his team down by 104-101.

In the second overtime, O'Neal's dunk placed them both 112, with less than 2 minutes to play. In the end, Manu Ginobili drove right through the lane against Raja Bell, and, like he usually does, got to the hoop and scored.

The SPURS won in the double overtime with 117-115. Tim Duncan walked away with an amazing 40 points, Parker with 26, and Ginobili with 24.

GO, SPURS! GO!!

---
*On a personal note: I really do not like Shaquille O'Neal's comment after the game. Why don't you [Shaq] just say that "You can't make mistakes against a team like that [period]..." Nothing more, nothing less. Just let it go. You cannot force people to dance to the tune you play. A game's a game.

Cheers!!
