Performance Of The Week | 3/29 – 4/4

By Paul Gotham

It is that time again. Let’s hear from you readers. We had another week of stellar performances.  Pick the ONE that stands out to you, and tell us a story.

Manu Ginobili grabs my POTW.

Ginobili scored a team-high 32 as the San Antonio Spurs beat the Los Angeles Lakers at the Staples Center, 100-81.

Ginobili scored 17 in the fourth quarter as the Spurs pulled away to clinch their 13th consecutive playoff spot.The shooting guard added five assists and five rebounds.

With Tony Parker already sidelined because of a broken finger, and George Hill spraining an ankle in the second quarter, Ginobili shouldered the load going 10-22 from the field, including 2-5 from behind the three-point arc.

The win was San Antonio’s third consecutive and 15 in the last 20 games.

Who gets your POTW?

    Their 9 game winning streak came to halt at week’s end, but the Phoenix Suns deserve some props for being the hottest team in the NBA the last 2 weeks.

    My sports player of the week is Erin Andrews over Chad Ochocinco on Dancing with the stars. She is long and a little awkward, but it’s about time we got to see her in outfits like those…wooooo…

    I don’t know where else to post this, so here it appears. The most significant play of Mondays title game was Zoubek’s first foul shot with 3.6 seconds on clock. If he misses that shot and then bricks #2 to minimize Butler’s time, Hayward’s shot falls. How do I know this? In 1954, Milan won the IN HS championship 32-30. In 1986 Hickory won the “Hoosiers” IN HS championship 42-40. On Saturday night, Butler won 52-50, and had Zoubek missed both, Hayward’s trey would have made the final 62-60. It was destiny, but just not the way I had hoped. And Zoubek gets POT(next)W for that shot; not bad for a 50% FT shooter. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate Duke, but even K would have not minded seeing Butler win.
