Scout's Take

December 29, 2003

On the defending champion Spurs, who at week's end had won 10
straight after a 9-10 start:

"They're winning with defense, but there's reason to believe that
they can get better offensively. During this streak Tony Parker
has taken over the game down the stretch when the defense has
surrounded Tim Duncan. Not too many centers have a better touch
than Rasho Nesterovic, who is an improvement offensively over
David Robinson. Though Manu Ginobili is shooting only 38.6
percent, he's an impact player who can create his own shot.
They're showing that they can be better than they were last
year."
