While Leonard and Duncan won't shut them down, it's a tandem that can single guard Kobe and Dwight as well as any in the league. Even if they are able to do that some of the time, it will make the defending the Lakers that much easier.

 

The point I'm making is that good teams had no problem beating the Lakers all year even with Dwight and Kobe. Why would that suddenly change against the Spurs(a good team)? While they're great players, this team has nothing else. They haven't been good all year, and that wouldn't have changed in the postseason.


Because the Spurs were a halfcourt team not a run and gun team.

Their strategy wouldn't be to run us out of the building or beat us with their "youth" it would be to beat us in a halfcourt set.  And we were one team they didn't want to matchup with in the halfcourt set.

Especially down the final stretch of the season where Kobe, Dwight and Pau finally started playing together.

It's a game of styles and matchups, and the Lakers were a nightmare for the Spurs with Kobe, Dwight and Pau healthy and finally in unison.    Pop knew this, which is why he wanted to avoid us and was hoping we'd wind up playing the Thunder.   But when Kobe went down, he didn't care who he got.    With Kobe healthy, he didn't want us.  it's that simple.  Because our style and matchups were a nightmare for the Spurs to have to deal with and try to defend.


Like I said we could go back and forth all day but the fact is Kobe wasn't able to make the off-season sadly, and neither was Blake or Nash for very long.

So we should deal with the present and the topic. Which is Warriors vs Spurs, with which the Spurs will lose in 6.

Wasn't really impressed with the end of the season run, for a variety of reasons which plenty of posters can explain better. In a nutshell, I thought it was mainly taking advantage of bad teams and Kobe heroics.

 

I think Warriors in 6 is a reasonable pick. I don't think I posted any picks for this round, but I was thinking Spurs in 6 before the series. GS has looked better so far. I think the Spurs still have it in them to play better though, so I still think it could go down that way.

The Warriors are obsessed with trying to take these "big moment" threes.

When Curry and Thompson are not hitting those shots - GSW's offense look very bad.

 

Spurs up 8 .. .  Everytime Warriors make a run .. Spurs have answered

Carl Landry is absolutely money with that mid-range jumper every time he plays against us, but now that he's not, he misses.

Probably it was because of our defense

Thompson and especially Curry are not yet ready for superstardom.  They can shoot .. but when their shots are not falling .. they can do little else.

The San Antonio Spurs are showing their championship composure in this game. Also, Gregg Popovich is showing on why he is one of the best coaches in the league today.

Lets see if GSW can build on this momentum.

 

Curry has to start connecting for that to happen.

Yes it was.

 

Curry's been a no-show. Show some killer instinct and passion! Wake UP! Take it to the basket if your shot's not falling. You have the ability! Make the adjustment!

Green has defended Curry well. Curry's shooting has been affected because of Green's physical defence.
