Will This be The Last Meeting Of The Year? Tim and Kobe Don't Think So.
Tonight marks the final bout of their season series, and since it was only a 3-game set, it decides who gets the season-series win. So, who's going to clinch it? Take your stab at tonight's showdown. Spurs won the last game in San Antonio, in a super-duel, 112-111. But this time there is no Manu Ginobili. Nor will Pop put in Drew Gooden. "We've been playing pretty solid," forward Kurt Thomas said on Tuesday. "We hit a few bumps in the road when we lost a couple of games. But I think we've bounced back and hopefully we can show that on Thursday night." The Los Angeles Lakers are 11-4 in second games of back-to-backs, and a win in San Antonio will all but guarantee the #1 seed (if not already, leading by 7 games).
