The first time the Spurs have possession tonight against the Phoenix Suns in their first round series all tied up, 2-2, Tim Duncan needs to take the first shot.

When they get the ball again, he needs to shoot again. If, by the third possession, Tim Duncan hasn't taken three shots, then he can sit in front of his locker stall again, look gloomily into the camera and repeat the same words he said Sunday after the Suns beat them.

"We gave this one away," Duncan said in the San Antonio Express News "and they were close enough to take it."
