The Blazers came away with a 102-100 victory over the Hornets last night, but not before Charlotte's Gary Neal had everyone convinced that the game was going to overtime.
The San Antonio Spurs are leading the Miami Heat 50-44 at half. Gary Neal leads all scorers with 14 points. LeBron James only has four points to go along with six rebounds and four dimes, but Dwyane Wade has 12 points and five assists.
The Memphis Grizzlies announcers left something to be desired (mainly, any commentary whatsoever) after Gary Neal tied the game at the buzzer last night. Here's what it sounded like on the other side.
Neal's miracle heave at the end of the first quarter would prove to be the difference in an 89-88 Spurs win. Of course, by that logic, any two points were the difference. (Antonio McDyess's tip-in was the actual game-winner.)
J.R. Smith get both air and distance, demolishing Neal with both hands. A bit of revenge - the Spurs later drew a charge to negate the potential gamewinner, but fundamental D doesn't sell sneakers.
