    the griz bullied the spurs... this spurs team is not championship ready... not because of this loss rather their hole at the point guard spot and the lack of quickness on the perimeter... Griz played well.. like they wanted the game more than the Spurs...


    side note... always have been a fan of Zebo's...

    Just once, I want one of these sideline reporters to ask Pop some dumb ass question about Anime or girl groups. If this dude is not going to answer a question about the game, just ask him anything.

    Or don't ask him anything, just say "Hey Coach, since I know you don't like answering question, just thought I'd say it seems you're down by four at half to Coach Fizdale...take that for data."

    Could SA conceivably lose this series, after 2-0 lead?


    Spurs perimeter defense is nowhere what it was in the past, while they cannot slow down this front court of Gasol/Z-bo

    A big part of that problem is that Manu and TOny still get heavy minutes because Pops trusts them on offense.

    Unfortunately these guys and Gasol just dont have the legs anymore.

    If you constantly push the tempo and make them run every second of the game while these three are playing, they are going to be huffing and puffing. It will especially show on defense.

    The longer the Grizzlies can stretch the series, the more Spur's age will show. Cant rest players now.

    When two Gasol brothers flop into each other how do you know who to call the foul on?

    ginobili is the spurs' ryan anderson.

    and kawhi really gets away with quite a lot of travels. they called one on him earlier but missed about 2 more that I saw.

    Ok ive held this in for a while


    but is it me or is kawhi a little overrated by the media. I understand the westbrook hype to a bit, but I just cant bring myself to say kawhi is better than harden. Is he more popular YESSSSS.. THATS WHY HE has accolades and harden does not, these "accolades are voted on by the media. Michelle Beadle's dad owns Valero and has a share in the san antonio spurs. Thats the real reason she is always supporting kawhi, people wanna say harden has "snipers" what does kawhi have. Alridge, gasol, bertans, mills, green, etc
