Finally the San Antonio Spurs were able to get their first road win of the season by defeating the Orlando Magic last night 85-83 in overtime.
It was a balanced attack with Tim Duncan looking as if he discovered the fountain of youth (17 points, 10 rebounds), Tony Parker steadying the Spurs (25 points) and Richard Jefferson shaking off his recent mini-slump (11 points).
But did YouTube sensation Jenna Marbles have some effect on the Spurs pulling out the victory? Maybe, if RJ had anything to do with it.
After the Spurs recent win at home over the Phoenix Suns, RJ stated he would show videos of Jenna Marbles to the squad to loosen them up on the road because, according to him, she has been the team’s inspiration at home. Listen to what RJ had to say (via woai.com) about her (last 30 seconds of video).
Now I don’t know about you but it sounds like RJ might be simply promoting (and obviously joking) Marbles and her videos because I highly doubt some Internet personality had anything to do with the Spurs’ dominance at the AT&T Center or with the road win over the Magic. But then again, RJ is a single guy and well, you know, might be doing Marbles a nice favor. Then again, if these YouTube videos do produce more wins for San Antonio, then keep them coming RJ!
