Default No defense played in SAS-OKC series?

1st game 98:101
2nd game 111:120

It does say great things about both team's offenses, but you can't expect either of them scoring that much against the Heat who I believe is better defensively. Actually I am little disappointed since Thunder has all the tools to be a great team on defense. At some point, both teams have to make adjustments because they can't expect to win games while letting the opposing team shoot 50% or better from the field.

To put things in perspective, the Heat haven't let anyone score 100 on them in these play-offs yet.

Did you watch the games? Especially the first half of game one?

I must say I haven't watched the whole games. So take my first post more like a question than a statement. Is it simply a case of good D, better O?

The Knicks and Pacers averaged around 98-99 PPG in the regular season. Is it that impressive to hold them to their averages? Two relatively inexperienced teams? Amare missed one game (Knicks scored 70 total) and came back with a bandaged hand. Not to mention, they didn't have Lin who would have been helpful. Pacers are lead by players who aren't all that battle tested in Granger, West, Hill, etc. The Spurs and Thunder are 2 of the top 3 scoring teams in the league. And the Spurs are no stranger to a slow paced kind of game. The Spurs and Heat are likely playing the best defense in the playoffs now.

They were fouling on purpose every single possession at one point therefore stopping the clock while still scoring points, I don't know if you watched the game?

The Spurs have been putting on a passing clinic and a pick and roll clinic. The commentators have noted that the Spurs spacing and ball movement have exposed a flaw in OKC's starting lineup. They can't have both Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka on the floor at the same time, because they are getting killed in the pick and roll and everyone on the Spurs can shoot.They have put Duncan way up high (usually Perkins is on him) and too often Perkins is out of place which draws Ibaka to cheat into the lane. So Boris Diaw (who is playing great) is free to roam to the open space. So Parker can almost always find Diaw or another shooter open for three if he needs to.

Parker has been playing really well, efficient, great decision making. Westbrook has been chasing him, but the Spurs use multiple screens on the same play so they usually catch him at some point. The Spurs might be the best pick-setting team in the league.

The game announcers have been using terms like Surgical to describe how precise and skilled the Spurs have looked so far.

We'll see how they do in Oklahoma, but so far the Spurs are in an incredible flow.

The reason I mentioned the first half of game one was the Spurs were having a lot of trouble with how fast OKC was and they had something like 14 turnovers in the half. But they have made some adjustments

Try and watch a repeat of game 1 and 2, they really have been fun to watch.

The Spurs played the Jazz and the Clippers!

Wow dude, those two teams are great that the bench played more then the starters.

The Knicks themselves could beat the Jazz and Clippers.

Spurs fans.
