Do You Bet Against Cinderella

Tonight, it is Game Seven of the San Antonio Spurs – New Orleans Hornets Series. For one of these teams, it is the last game of the 2007-2008 NBA season. This is the game that decided who advances and who begins summer holidays. It is Cinderella versus the reigning NBA champions.

By virtue of the regular season standings, the game will be played in New Orleans. Home court has been a factor in post season play, especially in this series. Every game has been won by the home team. This game will resemble a college basketball game. Each possession is important. Each rebound will be contested. It will be intense.

The Hornets began the season playing before less than stellar attendance at the New Orleans Arena. Now, the city will stop and hold its collective breath to see if their Cinderella team can turn back the defending champions. This evening will be part of legend. And no matter who wins, this is exactly what New Orleans needed.
