The Hornets fell to loathsome Spurs 91-82 in Game 7 of the Western Conference semis in New Orleans last night, setting up a San Antonio-LA conference finals showdown that forces anyone with a soul to partake in the unenviable chore of cheering for the same team as Jack Nicholson.
Chris Paul (18 points, 14 assists, 8 rebounds, 5 steals) and the Bugs mounted a fourth-quarter comeback to whittle a 17-point lead down to three in the final minutes, but the Spurs' playoff experience, three-point shooting, and ability to act like complete bitches were simply too much for the young home team.
Balding puddle of feces Manu Ginobili led all scorers with 26 points on a blistering 6-19 shooting performance, while all-world bore Tim Duncan chipped in 16 and 14 boards. Stubblecunt Tony Parker added 17 and a Gallic look of being near the brink of tears, while the thrill-a-minute Spurs busted loose for two fast break points. Whoa, someone slow the game down!
In conclusion, the Riverwalk is just a sewage ditch. Fuck San Antonio in the pants.
