    Make it $50 and $100 and you're on.

    Re benches, Bledsoe played well, concede that. Could argue he was their best player.

    Spurs won by 16. Hmmmm.

    Ok, you force me to break out the stats.

    Spurs shot better FG %
    Spurs shot better 3FG%
    Spurs shot better FT %

    Total Rebounds 34 47 - SPURS
    Offensive Rebounds 8 11 - SPURS
    Turnovers 15 18 - LA
    Fast Break Pts: 17 9 - LA
    Biggest Lead: 2 19 - SPURS
    Points in the Paint: 30 42 - SPURS
    Assists: 19 29 - SPURS
    Steals: 11 9 - LA

    So LA had a few less turnovers, 2 steals and more fast break points and lost every other category.

    Do the stats convince you?

    Take the bet, I'm handing you the pot odds.

    Like I said, make it $10/$100 and you got a bet. Like I said, I do not predict the Clips to win (I just believe they could) and all I'm trying to prove was how close the game was and that it is closer than it is. You're the one confident in the Spurs winning so you take my bet. Simple as that.

    Ok, break out the stats.

    3pt Clips 47% - Spurs 52%
    FG Clips 45% - Spurs 49%
    FT Clips 70% - Spurs 81%

    By Clips standard, that ft% is damn good. CP3 did not shoot a single ft either.
    3pt, well Spurs leads the NBA in that apparently but that isn't a bit difference there. Spurs hit 13 of 25 and Clips hit 9 of 19. Not a big difference. They shot more and made more. Tying it to FG, it is just as good really considering some of those shots were forced 3's to get the lea back in the end.

    Already discussed the transition 3.

    Again, despite all those stats, the Clips were right there til about last 2-3 minutes. It was closer than most of you expected, admit it.

    gotta admit I've always found it more than a tad disturbing... btw this 2nd half should be fantastic. Lakers up 1 in the 3rd.

    Damn, terrible last minute for the Lakers. :facepalm:
    2 key turnovers and let Harden drive at will.

    Just wow!

    Games done, Durant just has to miss the second ft and time runs out.

    Put blame on Kobe too, bad turnovers on him in that last minute.


    :lol: How nice of them to give the Lakers hope on that one.
