SAN ANTONIO (AP) The San Antonio Spurs had just taken Game 1, and Manu Ginobili didn’t want to hear another word about winning 15 in a row or not losing in more than a month.
“I don’t even want to know about that,” Ginobili said.
On the other side of the AT&T Center, Clippers’ All-Star Chris Paul needed no reminder that his wretched performance contributed to the Spurs’ 108-92 victory over Los Angeles in the opener of the Western Conference semifinals on Tuesday night.
He just needed to deliver the message to his kid.
“Good game, Daddy,” Paul’s young son told this father in the locker room.
“No, bad game,” Paul answered. “Daddy had a bad game. Daddy couldn’t make a shot.”
The Clippers – once again – won’t have much time to get better.
Tim Duncan had 26 points and 10 rebounds following an eight-day layoff for the top-seeded Spurs, who wore down Los Angeles in what was the sixth game in 11 day for the Clippers. Game 2 on Thursday night will make it seven in fewer than two weeks.
