Gentry on Tim Duncan Hitting Another Playoff 3-Pointer Against Suns
San Antonio bounced Phoenix from the postseason in five games that year, and put an end to the reign of Mike D'Antoni as Suns head coach in the process.
This history wasn't lost on Suns head coach Alvin Gentry on Wednesday, after his Suns took a 2-0 series lead on the Spurs. Duncan once again hit a three-pointer against the Suns, although this time the results were far less meaningful. With Phoenix up by 10 and 22.3 seconds left on the game clock, Timmy fired and connected on a 26-foot bomb that hit nothing but net.
As Gentry left the post-game press conference podium, he felt the need to comment on the incredible long range shooting that Duncan seemingly finds only against the Suns, and only in the postseason.
"I should say something about Tim Duncan," Gentry said as he headed for the exit. "The guy's hit two three-pointers in 10 years. You figure out who he's done that against."
