Nah, I don't think KD will be the factor here, say hello to Kawhi Leonard. IMO Westy will be a biggest factor against Parker (I think the Spurs will put Danny Green on him). But we'll see. This will be interesting.

Pop likes to switch it up... sometimes he'll have Green on Durant and Kawhi on WB. Who knows... I'd assume they'd throw Parker on Roberson. But Pop likes to give different looks

FlashBolt

I think you guys are underestimating OKC. Yes, Spurs are a deeper team but we're 2-1 against them (not counting the game where we sat our two starters in Westbrook/KD). It will be a close series. There is no doubt that if KD+Westbrook both have a great game, our chances of winning a game is much higher than if the Spurs just play a good game. Key to victory for us is Westbrook has to take advantage of the opposing PG and KD just needs a slight advantage over Kawhi. I hope Waiters steps up because we'll need him here. Kanter has also dominated the Spurs in all four games. If Duncan isn't playing, he needs to dominate big time.

Vee-Rex
04-28-2016, 01:09 PM
Originally I thought Spurs in 7, but...

I'm going Spurs in 6 for 5 reasons:

1. Kawhi effect.
2. OKC's inconsistencies.
3. Spurs dominance at home.
4. Coaching.
5. OKC's lack of depth.

OKC is an x-factor because they have the raw talent in Westie and KD to compete with anyone, but they're stuck in a conference with 2 incredible teams. Really sucks for them.

You can't say one of the games doesn't count cause OKC sat 2 guys, yet count the game the Spurs sat Leonard, Aldridge, Duncan, Parker, & Ginobili..

It's really 1-1, and the OKC win came on the season opener. (Not that I think the regular season meetings mean too much) Both teams looked different as the season progressed. IDK if Westbrook will take advantage of our PG's, because Pop likes to play him with Green since he's bigger and a better defender. Waiters is a big time wild card, it'll be interesting to see how he shoots the ball.

I kinda hope Pop throws Boban in there at times. OKC's bigs struggled with him a bit in an earlier meeting. He might be someone who can help control the boards. That'll be a big key for SA's frontline

Don't be so quick to write off OKC. I like our matchup far more vs OKC cause of the Aldridge addition, than I have in previous years, but I know momentum doesn't carry from 1 game to the next in the playoffs.

They have to close this game out and not let OKC get in rhythm, then expect an angry thunder team Monday.

Shades of the 2014 Finals. I do think it's a 2 team league this year, and this is just further proof. Thunder are quite easily the 3rd best team by net adjusted rating this year, and they got records put up on them. In another year the Thunder's offense would be called among the best ever instead of an afterthought.

I'm not saying it's impossible for someone besides the Warriors or Spurs to win it all, but I think it would take both injuries and a fairly good amount of luck.

This game reminded me of 2014 finals nightmares. I watched the most beautiful brand of basketball in those finals dismantling my team. Aldridge fits in perfectly.

Now the question is: When was the last time a spur scored 38 or more in the playoffs? Or hell even in a regular season game (I think TP once scored 55 or for something in a regular season game. What about playoffs though?)

Kevin Durant and Westbrook talk so much crap. I honestly just laughed at the post game press coverage. A "team" is not about ISO for 48 minutes. Aldridge ate up anyone who tried to man-on-man him and while the combination of 5 points out of our two point guards is discouraging, it might not matter. Westbrook and Durant may be the best one two punch in the league, but I will take the team I've rooted for since 91-92 all day. Spurs in 5.

Timmy has a couple times. He had 40 I think 08 playoffs.. think his reg season career high is 52. TP obviously like you said had 55, Manu maaaay have had 38 or more but id have to check.

Def not a regular thing . Tim early on was scoring a lot though, but not in recent years. LMA was great last night. Don't think Serge can handle him

And some people laughed at the grizz losing by 20 to the spurs every game. What people don't understand is that the grizz (despite being depleted with injury) played great against SA IMO. Spurs are really that good and kawhi is quickly becoming the best two way player in basketball. Team ball always beats ISO ball.

The most impressive thing is that the spurs all played low mins in game 1. I wouldn't be surprised to see okc fight back, but I believe this will be a comfortable series for SA, routinely winning by +10. I might give okc 1 game this series.

I actually think the Spurs match up with OKC better than the Warriors do. But that game 1 performance will probably not be repeated ... at least not to that degree. Beautiful ball against the Thunder, the contrast is just so sharp.

Well, ouch. OKC got bushwhacked in Game 1. Kawhi taking over the game, courtesy of the Spurs unrivaled stellar passing skills, and then like last playoffs, Aldridge just exploded. Holy crap. Does this even go 5 games? Thunder no longer have Reggie Jackson to save them and Durant is having a bad playoffs. Clearly Kawhi is bothering him and everybody else is bothering Westbrook. And when LMA drops 38 on you, yeah...ouch.

Stats like that make me laugh. We have a game and need to find some number that we can imply means something. Who had the record for playing under 29:30? What about 31 minutes? I've been hearing this stuff all year with Curry stats where he does something "for the first time ever" like he "hit 5 3s in the first 3.5 minutes of a game for the first time ever". Uhh okay :)

No doubt Aldridge was on an all-time role from mid-range. He could not be covered even when the Thunder tried.

For sure, I agree. It makes what happened in 2013, *gasp* worth it...

The boring label I understood in the mid 2000's, though prime Duncan was a joy to watch. But they play such a different brand now. A brand that the Warriors have adapted for themselves, and other teams are trying to incorporate/emulate.

Obviously we don't have the flash and flair, but it's far from boring imo.

Too true. Actually sometimes when they uncork something really beautiful I laugh out loud and try to explain to my wife what I'm laughing at.

The Spurs and the Warriors are the only teams that put 5 guys on the floor who want to move the ball quickly and CAN move the ball quickly all in an effort to get the easiest/best shot.

I like it when players enjoy the game and I see a difference between Draymond's preening and Curry's antics. Green annoys me but he's really just doing it for himself, but if I hadn't heard him talk for hours at this point I wouldn't know that (he's barking as loud as he can to force himself to back it up), but Curry is genuinely just having fun and playing the game like he did in his driveway as a kid.

Yea I get it. I'm not always a fan of it, I feel like there's a fine line between having fun and showing up your opponent. But I just mean that stuff attracts more people, especially the younger generation.

Aldridge has been a complete monster against us.. we need to start playing more aggressive with him. And if Dion Waiters touches the ball one more time, I will turn off the tv. I swear to God.. why this guy plays more than five minutes is a complete joke. We also gave that lead up as soon as Westbrook was benched. We're going to need him to play big minutes this game... just need one win here.

+/- is a terrible stat if it's just being judged by one game. aldridge was the only starter for the Spurs after like minute six while we still had KD/Westbrook on the court. That was when we made our run. Can't blame Adlridge for that.

While that's true, their opponent has had a decent year, and has guys who can win then games too in Kawhi and Aldridge.

No doubt... it was more of a scramble... idk if Manu would've had ft's or not after that call. I'm not sure how it works with the inbounder committing a foul tbh.

If it's side out though, it would have been a far more better executed play. Like going to LMA in the post

You would be wrong. I know what Waiters did was a foul. But Manu was also committing a foul as well. And Durant was shoved away from the Inbounds pass as well...foul not called. But the bottom line is that the Spurs were not going to get a better chance to score and retake the lead...or win the game then they had in those final seconds...and they missed. So in the end...the team that deserved the win got the win...Period!!

To be fair, Manu did step on the line... so it's not as if the Spurs aren't guilty either. Anyhow, this is why I can't stand Waiters... I feel bad for the Spurs (not really) but Waiters has been a waste of a roster spot. Only reason we have him is because he hustles and has more than two years of NBA experience. Other than that, we're getting this sucka gone after this season! Refs also said they didn't see that elbow from Waiters because it was something they've never seen before and didn't expect it. Refs tend to not focus on the inbounder rather the players trying to get free from picks, etc. so it's not as if they purposely didn't want to see it. It was a missed call, it happens. They can't check the replay to see if Waiters elbowed him if they didn't see what happened to begin with. I feel you guys are getting too involved with thinking that refs have to see everything. Mistakes happen throughout the entire game and in every game. I'll be whining if it happened to my team as well but these calls always even out eventually.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong. But, there's four 2ft. marks on each side of the court by the top of the key. What are these marks for? Decoration? They are there because the opposing team is suppose to allow room for the other team to inbound. The sidelines are tight, the fans are right next to you. So, the refs will point at the mark on the floor...this is saying allow the guy room to inbound. Then, he will give the player the ball to inbound. Manu actually committed a technical foul. The refs just blew it through out that whole segment of play.

In bounding the ball under the basket, or after a made basket is a different thing. You are allowed to get in the opposing players face. but, not on the sideline. Right or wrong?

Flopping and selling are completely the same, how is it not? If Manu wants to be treated fairly here and thought something should have been called, he shouldn't have spent his entire career trying to flop for free calls. I agree that it was a foul but he did flop.. or sell a call as you would say.

What do you call it when there's no contact, and the guy falls? Ala Bosh/Boozer from a few years back? Or Harden throwing his head back with no contact?

Manu complained a little after the game to the officials, and was asked about it in an interview, but that was about it. You are making seem as if he was making a big fuss saying he needs to "stfu" or if he wants to be treated fairly, etc...

I didn't think the foul was a big deal since you guys ended up getting the balls anyway but I think Flashbolt's take would be different if roles were switched.

Oh yea, no doubt about it (if roles were switched)

That whole play sucked ***. Green made a terrible pass... He floated a pass to Mills instead of a chest pass. Had he did that, Mills had an open layup and could've beat Adams. Mills could've pump faked Adams, but he rushed it, etc...

The fact that they had a chance to win despite how crappy they played is what is keeping me confident in them winning this series. The foul not being called for me was just bad in that the ref was literally right in front of the action.

But as I said, that game was lost in the 1st quarter when they just couldn't get anything to drop.

There were a couple missed calls both ways, and I saw a couple Kawhi push offs. U should watch WB when he drives and extends his arm too. Just another reason he doesn't deserve a call on every drive.

And the Spurs defense is faaaar more disciplined than OKC. So LMA and Kawhi having more FTS isn't surprising. How many times do okc defenders leave their feet on pump fakes?

Another win for the refs

Either way. Three things.

1) Westy needs to go back to being a creator for his teammates rather than than a high volume shooter. Westy shooting 30+ times is exactly what the Spurs want. Westy needs to have 12-15 assist type games, not 30+ shot games.

2) Durant needs to DEMAND the Ball

3) Billy Donovan is a joke. Out of timeouts I don't think I've ever seen a team as bad as OKC. They have no set plays, they are always mentally making dumb mistakes, and this is not just this series but ALL SEASON. 10+ seconds for a two point shot is unacceptable, Waitors boneheaded play which almost cost OKC game 2, all of this falls on Donovan. Dude has relied all season on his two superstars and I think anyone on PSD could coach the Thunder and win 50+ games...

Because Billy Donovan is a joke. OKC won 50+ games because they have two of the top 5 players in the NBA. They win strictly on talent; they have horrible coaching.

Yea, I'm not a fan of just giving the ball to ur superstar and telling him to just go do something. Regardless of how talented a player is, they will always be better if u set something up to put them in a position where they are most comfortable and have the defense running around trying to cover assignments.

I would say there was about two calls Aldridge got where he just threw his body into the defender. All I'm saying is the Spurs getting 14+ free throws is a little excessive and basically the difference in the game.

Agreed on the Spurs shooting 14 more FTs. They weren't that much more aggressive to get that many more FTs. Not to mention home teams usually get a little home cooking it's really puzzling that there was that large of a FT discrepancy.

kdspurman
05-07-2016, 12:48 AM
^again, they weren't driving in as much. But like I said, how many times did OKC defenders leave their feet on jump shooters? They aren't a disciplined defensive team. They gamble and often are over-aggressive.

I was shocked we had more FT's, Durant usually lives at the line. But they defended him well, a lot of his stuff was coming from the perimeter

you guys pass the ball and don't over play better then anyone in the league. You are dependent on LMA and KL creating for themselves but they are good at it. I do think think on paper the lack of play making form the guards and the fact that they aren't as good from deep this year look like holes but they won a ton of games and i have learned the Spurs are always better then what they look like on paper. It just an matter of how much better.

I kinda hope that doesn't happen because of what will follow. If OKC beats the Spurs and the Warriors go on to win the Championship everyone is gonna talk about how it doesn't mean anything because they didn't beat the Spurs a team they didn't get to face because they could t win their series. And thus they're not the real Champs.
