Yikes, two out of the three games last night were barely watchable, unless you're a Spurs or Pacers fan I guess.
San Antonio 114 Utah 83
The Spurs absolutely destroyed the Jazz in San Antonio last night. The Jazz were right in it with seven minutes left in the first half, then missed 12 straight shots as the Spurs went on a 22-2 run to close the half and lead 53-28 at the break. The Spurs never looked back after that.
Indiana 97 Orlando 74
After winning game one in Indiana, Orlando has looked terrible. That's thanks in part to Indiana, who have woken up after that loss and pounded the Magic twice in a row. Without Dwight Howard the Magic have zero identity and are playing a glorified version of pickup basketball. Indiana is up 2-1 now.
Memphis 105 Los Angeles Clippers 98
The only close game of the night, but it never really felt like the Clippers had a chance. Memphis shook off the memory of blowing a 27 point lead in game one to come back and look like a team on a mission. The Grizzlies allowed to Clips to cut the lead to four in the fourth, but O.J. Mayo knocked down a couple of threes on his way to 20 points to build the lead back up. The series is tied at one game each heading back to L.A.
