Screw this. I still say it's not over. I say that Tony Parker cannot and will not replicate his game one and game two performances in Cleveland. Nothing can make me believe that he is as good as Michael Jordan, and nothing can make me believe that he will have the same luck he had in S.A., when he would chuck the ball at the basket and watch it bounce seven times before falling in, every single time. Parkers box scores show a combined 25-43 shooting. I find it hard to believe he has missed that many shots.
He is very good. HE IS NOT THAT GOOD.
LeBron James and the Cavs have too much pride to be swept, and, frankly, LeBron is that good that he could turn this series on its ear at any moment.
Some other things I know:
Robert Horry will not get every rebound in game 3. He will not block every shot.
Not every Spurs desperation shot will go in at the Q.
The Cavs will not miss all those free throws at home. Think, just think of how close it would have been in that fourth quarter if they could have been better at the stripe. That late 8 point deficit may have been more like 3 or 4, and things could have gotten very interesting.
Larry Hughes, unless Mike Brown is insane, will not play more than 10 minutes, if at all, which he shouldn't.
Manu Ginobili will not continue to make EVERY three pointer he takes.
Zydrunas Ilgauskas, ten year vet, will not completely be humiliated.
Someone, anyone, will knock Parker down, and knock him down hard. Someone will pick up a flagrant for it, I hope. A really hard message is long overdue.
Duncan will be amazing.
LeBron will be amazinger.
