I am not sure I agree because Wade started the run with Bron on the bench. He also made two unbelievable 3 point shots.

I know we're still gonna lose, possibly even get blown out but I love what I've seen from the lakers the first 6 minutes. Don't lose because of effort and I can handle the loss.

Lakers w/ like 2 mins left in the 1st have 20 shots up for 28 pts. This is going to be a high scoring match.

Yes they will. And Lin is too rested. He's coming off that bench w/ energy.

So DWill has 20+ pts. vs the underrated defensive gem in Jrue Holiday?

This is the type of game that pisses you off w/ Jeremy Lin. Start off slow, looks like a d-leaguer, takes until the 2nd qtr. to figure go to the rim, it's like he's a reverse offensive coordinator, then midway through the 2nd, you realize he's getting everyone else spaced out and he controls the pace.

Lets think a bit here.

1st rd vs Utah, they'd run them out
1st rd series vs Spurs, can the Spurs at 35+ keep that pace for 2 straight games?
1st rd vs Golden State, I like the Dubs but the Roxs 3 pt. shooting would hurt them
1st rd series vs Memphis, it'd go 7.
1st rd series vs Dallas? com'on.
1st rd series vs Denver same as Memphis

When Houston makes you play their game, they run you out.

Lets think a bit here.

1st rd vs Utah, they'd run them out
1st rd series vs Spurs, can the Spurs at 35+ keep that pace for 2 straight games?
1st rd vs Golden State, I like the Dubs but the Roxs 3 pt. shooting would hurt them
1st rd series vs Memphis, it'd go 7.
1st rd series vs Dallas? com'on.
1st rd series vs Denver same as Memphis

When Houston makes you play their game, they run you out.

While I wouldn't be thrilled about playing the rockets, the spurs have plenty fire power and depth to match theirs IMO. They've played 3x already (1game Harden was out) but they've all been high scoring.

OKC
Denver
Clips
Memphis
San Antonio

have higher efficiency marks in the West.

reading comprehension is your friend. did you miss where Maniac states it puts them in the 17-21 range? Oookay.

I'm thinking if they playing like this now? the playoffs you have another motor. By the end of the season Spurs age will catch up.

I didn't say they were great. I was just pointing out that they aren't horrible defensively. Below average, but not horribly off that

Nah was more of a point of agreeing with ManRam that they can't run with the big boys in the West statistically. Didn't really mean to quote you though.

Na I don't think so. It didn't last year I don't think that'd be an issue at all with the way Pop rests the guys. Especially if you're talking about a first round matchup. It would come down to which team could get timely stops in a series like that.

As it stands, the Spurs are better equipped to do that. Now later on who knows how both teams look. I'm not discounting Houston I just don't think running out of gas would be an issue

you don't think 48 mins of push up ball is going to effect them? the energy they have to use to stop the Roxs, unless Duncan is going to turn back the hands of time and turn into Bill Russell. :confused:

Maybe not Parker and Leonard, but the rest? IDK.

I wouldn't want to face SAS, OKC, or LAC. I'd take our chances vs anyone else though

It wouldn't be 48 mins of push up ball. Spurs can slow the game down when needed. You're not one of the highest scoring teams if you get tired easily, which the spurs are again this year.

If they control the turnovers, you limit Houston running. They put up a ton of points cause of how efficient they are in the half court. But they're very capable of running especially when the 2nd unit comes in.

But this is my point, the Spurs aren't really that type of team. You're efficient and good at moving the ball. You don't really force a crapload of turnovers. It's one thing to play the Rockets when they come off a back to back and then rebound vs another team, you look dangerous. But we talking about how Gm.1 would be a track meet b/c this season the Spurs have gotten caught up in playing Houston's uptempo, you're going to go back to back against that. Harden getting to the line, Parsons will be better, and Lin if healthy getting to the line.

I think the Spurs are a great team. I think A semi halfcourt team they'd beat. I think a series vs Houston would be a toss up. B/c it's young legs vs old legs w/ no breaks. Sooner or later it catches up. Father time doesn't take no breaks.

There are no back to backs in the playoffs. And the Spurs can adapt to just about any type of style. Anyone who has watched them knows they can get up and down the court with the best of teams. You can use the young legs/old legs but you've also got inexperience vs an experienced team who's chemistry is 2nd to none.

We'll just have to agree to disagree on this :)
