Interesting first game of the season. Suns having to play Spurs in S.A..
The Spurs have been their roadblock so it was a major game for a new coach and a new philosophy. The Suns seemed to play the Spurs pick & roll better which killed them last year.
The hack a Shaq was ineffective-Shaq 5/8 ft's, also, had 13 rbs-15pts-2blks.
Amare looks like he will make a run for mvp but needs better defense.
It's just 1 game but it brings into question those that want to writeoff Suns.

Duncan was usual boring but effective self & Parker always plays awesome against the Suns. Ginobilli was out which probably negated the home court.
Both teams will threaten in the west but their is so much talent in the west, I think of all the great teams in the west I would pick the team that happens to be healthy in the playoffs.
Is there any team that can win the NBA if it loses one of top two stars?
