I'll be real interested to see how the Grizz play. Lionel Hollins made a good point in hoping his team doesn't listen to the media in that an 0-3 deficit has never been overcome before, and just go out and play. If they already feel defeated, then that's half the battle for SA.

I fully expect them though to come out and want to have a good showing in front of their fans.

It'll be a total team effort like it was in 07. If it comes to that. Of course it's 2 totally different teams, but same kind of game plan (I think at least)

lets see he's only went up against Howard, Bogut, & Gasol. You're out of your mind, he's been the anchor defensively. Despite that, he's still playing solidly offensively.

Should be... But this was my concern, guys like Green/Leonard/Bonner knocking down shots in Memphis. Someone needs to knock down a couple, might have to be Manu or someone like Neal. Manu has had 2 go in and out, so we'll see if the other rim is a little friendlier

I blame Gasol partially for passing up open jumpers. If he shoots with confidence he would make all of them. He needs to quit hesitating

Everytime the Spurs get a timeout, (after an opposing team makes any kind of run) they come back with 2-3 great plays for easy points. It's a trend that hasn't failed in this post season.

Grizz defense was ranked #1 reg season because they try so hard. Defense wins games in regular season, but grizz offense has really struggled in postseason. Offense is the main reason defense has been awful.

Playing a good defensive and offensive team in the spurs, the grizz are working way to hard on both sides of the ball. Which causes the defensive struggle against SA. Not to mention they are very good.


Grizz needs scorers that make the game easier

I generally agree, but Parker's calf will get to 100% & more importantly Leonard who's been battling some quad issues will get some much needed rest.

The way these guys are playing, their competitive edge isn't going anywhere. Duncan & Parker realize this opportunity and they'll be ready to go. Just from hearing some of their quotes and the way they're talking. They realize this opportunity and they want it.

If there was a time Memphis missed Rudy gay it was this series right here they could have used him down the stretch of games since there were so many close games in this series. Congrats SA

He outplayed Kawhi? I'd say he hit more 3's, but outplayed? Not even close. You're totally missing the other side of the court, defense, rebounding, etc... Check some more stats and get back to me.

& he's not way overrated... Not even close, but people realize his potential. You don't watch him enough to say this. Dude is almost averaging a double double in this years playoffs.

The argument with kwahi means nothing. So he won't contain LeBron? Who cares nobody can. The key is to limit 1 of the big three and to close out on threes

Put Kiwi on the Bobcats and he is nothing but we will see in 2 to 3 years from now when pop and the others are gone.

Green is not the same as Kawhi. Green cannot do the things off the dribble that Kawhi can at times, and Kawhi has the ability to post up smaller guys. It's why the Warriors got away with putting Curry on him. Anytime Kawhi had Curry on him, he took him in the post and scored with ease.

This is a very interesting topic that I have pondered for a while now and I dont know if it has been discussed. Where does this Spurs team rank all time if they do win it all this season? I mean, since '99 they have won 4, including this year(IF), it will be 5 titles. Also, it would be 5-0 in the Finals and that is a 14 year span. From '85-'98 Jordan and the Bulls won 6 times, so how far behind is this Spurs team? I think if they win this season the Spurs of the early 2000's until now are one of the top 5 greatest dynasties in NBA history

The longevity of the dynasty that they've stayed together + healthy for so long during the Duncan era is sort of a positive or a negative when comparing them to other dynasties.

I have them over the Bad Boy Pistons, and it puts them in the conversation with Bird's Celtics (not as potent but the longevity is there), but still behind Showtime, MJ+Scottie's Bulls and Russell's Celtics.
