I personally think Memphis should win over SA.

You cannot count the Spurs out .. But the Grizz-Spurs will be a good fight.

Good effort.  Much like the Lakers before Phil got there against the same team, they didn't lose to the more "talented" team.   They'll bounce back next year.

On to the next round where the Grizzlies await.

They (Splash brothers) need to update their game. They shot zero FTs here. When their shots were not falling .. they could not get inside much and absorb contact.

Especially disappointed in Klay ... He has the physique to bang inside ...

Maybe he is another soft player - like Pau

The Spurs' role players are really good. They made the difference in the last 2 games.

The difference being people usually pick the flashy team who can run and gun or high volume 3 point team to just outpace and outscore the Spurs hisorically like the Suns, Clippers, and GS now, whereas the Spurs excel at a solid transition defense, interior bigs (not perimeter bigs) and just good overall coahing the Spurs slow down a flashy team.

 

Difference is the Grizz actually love that gritty and grind style. If anything, the Spurs would be the flashier team in this series with players like Parker and Ginobili moving all over the place. I just think the Grizz 'IF' it comes down the a physical and half court game mostly, should convincingly win in a series.

They need a better interior and Bogut needs to increase his offensive game.

When the Splash brothers are off their only other weapons are more perimeter players.

So they need some interior offense.


So if I'm the Warriors I go after Al Jefferson and/or Paul Milsap.

I think Thompson just kind of became a shell of himself at this stage playing against a battle tested and experienced Spurs team, I also think that in the ensuing years he'll learn how to get going when the jumper isn't there. Curry finally did get something going again during game 6 and used his quickness to get to the basket instead of passing it as soon as he could.

While its disappointing to lose of course, keeping things in perspective, this has been one of the most fun Warrior seasons I remember. Things look good for the team. Curry shined on the national stage (struggled during the middle of this series though), which was surprising because stars sometimes take a few tries before they perform so well in the postseason as opposed to the regular season. Another player that really surprised me was Barnes though, I thought he had skills but he really showed up as a rookie this year. Just need players like Bogut (and Curry) to stay healthy

Also I'm rooting for the grizzlies to win it all, or maybe the pacers. Both teams have the physicality and defense to get it done. And San Antonio knocking out both of my teams has nothing to do it............ lol

Usually does.

 

Not bad for a Spurs team that was "outmatched at every position".  :laughing:
