I really think the Spurs are in a lot of trouble. They got about as much from Parker as humanly possible and Duncan looked decent last game and they still lost. They just can't defend enough, and they are playing 2 on 5 on offense with their rock solid 3 pt shooting all of a sudden kind of shaky.
if this is a close game 4th qtr, i think Dallas takes it because they will just be fresher down the stretch. it hink if SA wins, they win a game where they are up 10 plus most of the game.
I don't think the Spurs will give up a second game in San Antonio. They will come out strong and win this game tonight. I still believe they can take this series to 7 games if we just get our defense to be more consistent.
Key's to tonight's game for the Spurs:
- Defense (can we make Dirk shoot a low percentage in the half-court setting and contain Terry and the rest of their role players?)
- Rebounding (everyone needs to start crashing the boards. Gooden, Bonner, Thomas, someone else besides Duncan needs to be more reliable in this category.)
- Additional Scoring (yes, Tony can score 40+, but that isn't going to win us games. Mason, Gooden, Finley, Bonner, Udoka, and even Bruce all need to be more productive on the offensive end.)
