Stubhub is awesome. I may have mentioned this in previous posts, but where else can you get a $6 ticket to see the best team in the NBA! I’m already eyeballing seats for other games : The Houston Astros, Houston Texans, Texas Rangers, Dallas Cowboys…
And so, for less than $15 after parking, I find myself at AT+T Stadium…
The San Antonio Spurs were on an 18-game win streak, winning by an average of 17 points per game. The are led by Tim Duncan (who’s something like 63 years old), Tony Parker, and a very impressive supporting cast. One of the really cool things they do here while the players warm up is pan in on them in real-time and show their statistics — every single player. And, if a bench player doesn’t have particularly overwhelming season stats, they’ll find some flattering statistics on them. It’s very well done and a really good way for someone like me to learn each player’s role on the team.
The Spurs put on a Class-A production. The intermissions are the most entertaining I’ve seen in ages. They keep the crowd laughing, engaged, and involved. Although, I have little doubt Spurs fans have need much more than their basketball team to keep their spirits high. This town love their San Antonio Spurs! Better than 90% of them stayed til the very end. I suspect I may find this a lot with Texas sports teams.
The Spurs were in control from the very beginning. In little time at all they had a 20-point lead. At times, they pushed a 30-point lead when they had their stars in the game. Incredibly, they played most of the game with their bench players, all of which played fantastic! It’s a been a long, long time since I’ve seen such a dominating performance. The Spurs would go on to win their 19th consecutive game 111-90. They did this with seemingly great ease.
