If you were going to guess the two San Antonio Spurs that outscored LeBron James in Game 3 of the NBA Finals, it would be easy, right? Tim Duncan? Manu Ginobli? Tony Parker? Try Danny Green and Aberdeen native Gary Neal. Green led all scorers with 27 points, and Neal was right behind him with 24 points , a playoff career high. Neal, a Calvert Hall graduate, went 6-of-10 from 3-point range, helping the Spurs to a superb 16-for-32 night from beyond the arc and a 113-77 win over the Heat.

WASHINGTON - - Tim Duncan scored 23 points and reserve Roger Mason Jr. added a season-high 20 to lead the San Antonio Spurs to their fifth straight victory on Saturday night, 97-86, over the Washington Wizards, who remained enveloped in a gun controversy surrounding Gilbert Arenas. Tony Parker had 12 points for the Spurs, whose winning streak matches a season high. San Antonio has won four straight on the road and nine in a row against the Wizards. Duncan's jump hook gave the Spurs an 81-80 lead with 6:21 left in the game, and he followed that with two free throws as part of a decisive 12-2 run. Caron Butler scored 24 points and Arenas added 23 for the Wizards, who have dropped four straight.

Also, with F Chuck Person (sore back) out for possibly the season, the Spurs have had trouble finding an offensive flow in dropping their first two games with the focus of the attack on F Dominique Wilkins. The Bullets continue to play short-handed, entering their third straight without a true center.

Now, for our eagerly awaited NBA Decade Awards, or at least they might be eagerly awaited if they came around more often than once in 10 years. Of course, the most glamorous award goes to the Team of the Decade, so here goes: Tie: Lakers and Spurs. History isn't remembered by decades but eras, which might not fit neatly into decades. The Lakers' 4-3 edge in titles over the Spurs this decade hardly demonstrates that they ruled, since it's 4-4 over 11 years counting the Spurs' title in 1999.

Just looking at Sean Elliott's feathery jump shot, you wouldn't know that he hasn't played competitive basketball in nearly nine months. The ball spins gently off the fingertips, rotating softly through the air before landing in the basket, barely touching anything but the bottom of the net. Just looking at Elliott's smooth face, you couldn't guess what the San Antonio Spurs forward has endured since helping his team win the NBA championship last season....

SAN ANTONIO -- They more than half-filled the Alamodome, nearly 40,000 strong, letting out a roar that could seemingly raise the dome roof. Up near the top of the building in the 300 level, right about where the 50-yard line would be in a football configuration, the view of the court was more court curtain and less court. But the fans in the obstructed-view seats, some of whom paid as little as $15 for a seat from which the players seemed like dots, did not care. "Just being here for the team, that's the thrill," said Ray Holt, one of those "lucky" enough to get a seat in the 300 level.
