The San AntonioÂ Spurs finally win a game against the New Orleans Hornets but the Hornets still lead the series (2-1). The Spurs win by 11 last night and take the victory of Game 3 (110-99). Tony Parker did not want to lose 3 games in a row to the Hornets so he stepped up his game a little bit. Parker totaled 31 points, 11 assists and 4 rebounds. Manu Ginobili also scored 31 points, 6 assists and 4 rebounds. Ginobili said after the victory last night:
“We know that going 3-0 — it’s never been done to come back like that,” said Ginobili, “Today, for us, it was a Game 7. We knew if we didn’t win today, it was almost over. So we had a different approach. We played with more passion, more edge.”
Although the Spurs won Game 3 the Hornets are still leading the series. Chris Paul still seem as unstoppable as they won the game themselves. Paul had a whopping 35 points, 9 assists and 2 rebounds. David West had 23 points and 12 rebounds. Chris Paul talked about Game 3 loss and said:
“They made a lot more shots,” Paul said. “We got away from our defensive game plan somewhat. We didn’t defend as well as we did the first two games.”
Â In order to win these series Chris Paul will have to go harder in the next away game against the Spurs.
Game 4 airs Sunday (May 11) @ 8 on TNT.
