Re: Round 1, Game 3, April 23: Mavericks @ Spurs
Popovich made some key adjustments in game 2, and it will be interesting to see if Carlisle can come up with any counters:
1) ran the pick and roll with Duncan instead of McDyess, bringing out Haywood/Dampier and leaving Dirk by his lonesome to defend the rim (which he can't do well).
2) took away more of Kidd's passing options, forcing him to shoot contested 3s (which he can't do well) or drive and finish at the basket (which he can't do well)
Hill looked a lot better in game 2. even though he was indecisive on some rotations, he made a couple of big jumpshots in the 4th.
so, what's the Mavs fan take?
